Jan 13 bottle

Pours jet black with a small mocha head that quickly fades to a ring of bubbles around the brim of the glass. Smells of straight espresso. Taste is huge coffee a shot of italian espresso that becomes a bitter dark chocolate with a bit of sharp oak. Mouthfeel is on the full side with just the right amount of carbonation. Overall a very good variation of a already stellar beer.

A: Black with a big brown head. Retention is good and lacing is decent.

S:Bakers chocolate. Some prune and grape. Coffee note is a bit small compared to the chocolate.

T: Big sugary sweet cafe mocha upfront. A slightly bitter roasted malt and black coffee come in about halfway and linger on into the aftertaste.

M: Medium-full mouthfeel with low carbonation. Smooth and wet.

O: Good sweet coffee imp. stout that's well priced.

Wow - this is a quad-shot espresso forward Imperial Stout!! Starbucks should be worried as the price of this per ounce isn't that much different than my normal morning beverage.

Pours jet black like used motor oil with a lovely , velvety mocha head which looks creamy and retains well. Nose is all roast malts and espresso. Flavor is heavily dominated by the coffee and espresso but you pick up the oak smokiness and a little char from the malts. This is one of the better coffee stouts that I've had, but be warned that it is a little unidimensional and much less complex than a KBS or Bourbon County. I think the six shots of espresso kind of offset the 9.5% ABV, so theoretically you could drink this all night!!

I enjoyed it a lot, and I'll be back to it.
