Very roasty with a bold roast coffee smell with some herbal citrus smells underneath it all. Very very smooth with sweet stout malts up front evolving into a bitter coffee taste and herbal bitterness from the hops melding together perfectly.

This is a pretty bitter beer and the sweetness only rolls over for a short while. The alcohol taste is non existent and is extremely drinkable. The coffee really comes out as the beer warms a bit as does the bitterness of the beer.

This is definitely one of the best coffee beers I've had. It definitely has a sedating but uplifting buzz to it from the coffee they inject into the beer. It tastes like a bold coffee but still like a beer because of the hoppy bitterness.... a fantastic beer.

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle, no freshness date, into a Breckenridge snifter. Very dark, black, but light shines through around the perimeter of the glass. Decent, light brown head that receded quickly.

I smell roasted malt, toasted bread, alcohol, plum, very slight coffee.

Not a lot of coffee coming through here, I'm picking up more fruit notes than anything else. Plum again, raisin, smoke. This is smooth and enjoyable, no alcohol burn whatsoever. Semi-sweet.

Nice feeling in the mouth, more carbonation than I expected, not necessarily a bad thing though.

I am enjoying this beer. Not as complex as some other imperial stouts that I have tried but I am happy to have had it and will likely buy it again. Going out to the bar after this one and hoping for a caffeine kick!

Poured from a 22 oz. bomber into a Lagunitas Brewing Company branded mason jar

Appropriately pours a dark coffee brown capped by a two finger fluffy off-white head. Great retention and tons of splotchy lacing that coats the majority of the inside of the glass. Espresso, some dark fruit, a hint of vanilla, and alcohol. Sweet malt joined by espresso, charred malt, hints of bakers chocolate touched by vanilla throughout that finishes with warming alcohol. On the heavier side of medium-bodied, slick with a hint of creaminess. Overall, this brew was enjoyable, solid, but nothing special. Definitely worth the price point.

Pours black with a thin white head that lingers with bubbles and leaves excellent lacing. The smell is mostly of spent coffee and vanilla without much else. The taste is big and chocolaty with a lot of coffee flavor as well, with some earthy bitter notes that linger for a long time. The mouthfeel is creamy and makes the beer a slow drinker but not out of form for the style. Overall I am impressed with this one from lagunitas, Im happy it caught my eye.

This was a bomber poured into a mug.

This beer really surprised me. It pours a dark black with a tight head with tiny bubbles and has amazing retention as well as amazing lacing. It smells sweet and very chocolately with a hint of the coffee beans that apparent upon taste. In the taste I get a plethora of things which my pallet is no where near capable of truly explaining. Initially it is sweet and mouth warming and then I get a coffee taste which if I could find this coffee I wild buy it and drink it hourly. The after taste is amazingly pleasant and very reminiscent of the initial taste. As far as mouthfeel I feel like this is one of the biggest bodied beers I had had in months. Great arbonation and great full bodied beer. I would HIGHLY recommend this beer to anyone who likes stouts or coffee. In a moment of full disclosure I do love both stouts an coffee.

This is an amazing beer.
