Thanks to Stakem and jpmclaug for some bottles of this.
A- Poured into a tulip this beer comes out of the bottle and rests in the glass a fairly thick black, with a finder tan bubbly head that fades quickly to a film over the top of the beer and a 1/8" ring around the edge of the glass. Has som bubbles running the glass.
S- The nose is quite impressive on this beer. The "imperialness" is obvious in the aroma with a strong roasted malt presence along with a coffee chocolate combo and some toasted oat.
T- Another impressive quality to this beer, the flavors blend together nicely and maybe its just the placebo effect from the label but it really does taste like chocolate chip cookie dough. As well as some espresso.
M- Medium bodied brew with light carbonation and leaves a bitter chocolate after taste.
O- Very glad to have had this delicious treat.

Mocha head, black opaque body. Good lacing and head retention.

Smells like a sweetened black cup of iced coffee. Some coco, roasted malts, dark roasted coffee.

Tastes like a big iced bitter black roasted coffee. Fairly creamy and chocolately.

Medium bodied, low carbonation. Fairly creamy and thick feeling while still being fairly drinkable.

Overall this is a tasty coffee stout. Alcohol is well masked and drinkability fairly high. Good complexity with the roast, coffee and chocolate flavors.

$Thanks tommy for this 4 pack

2011 vintage 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

Pitch black and oily-looking n the pour. Half an inch of light brown head that fell to thin congregation on the surface.

Sweet lactic nose with some medium-roast coffee, tart berry, and caramelly grain. Not so heavy with the roast. No char or smoke. Just a fruity coffee, with some sugars.

Now the taste, on the other hand, is a fully-realized sweet coffee with cream. A dollop of cream, implied from the lactose. There's a nice chewy, bitter oatmeal quality that punctuates the malt. Very oat-forward malt bill. It does wonders for the mouthfeel, too. Nice and chewy and smooth, but the taste bows out for that great coffee flavor and bitterness to finish out the taste. Some tart cherry and almond in there. Maybe I should say orgeat.

A prime coffee stout, and an even more prime Imperial Coffee Stout. A beer I always seem to forget about, and when I see it again, thoroughly enjoy it like it was the first time.

12 oz bottle, purchased 1/2011, bottle marked Vintage 2011, well stored after purchase.

Poured into a Dogfish Head Signature snifter

Pours a nice thick head which rapidly reduces to a thin cap, typical of the style.
Easily revived, it is a lively ale.
Black opaque color, dark tan head with some lacing here and there.

Big aroma of coffee, coffee au latté, yeast and deeply roasted malt.

Rich, crisp entry on the palate of refined dark roasted coffee, malt, and yeast. Not much here in the way of hops, but that is to be expected. The very full mouth feel, with a wonderful carbonation and good acidity, gives this ale a nice balance. A very enjoyable brew.

Long finish of coffee, coffee au latté and dark unsweetened chocolate.

Well this is a very good Stout even if there is nothing that really stands out as exceptional. Very smooth and easy to drink. The 8% ABV is of course not even noticeable. IMO like most stouts everything starts to come out at about 50-55 degrees.
This is a very tasty stout and definitely worth a try. Recommended.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

Beer pours a thick dark brown, almost black. There is a slight amount of brown head that fades fairly quickly.

Beer smells very, very strongly of roasty coffee. Also faintly of smoke, as well.

Beer tastes very strongly of black coffee. Very roasted and slightly sweet. Hints of dark, bitter chocolate as well. Finishes less bitter than one would think.

Mouthfeel is fairly thick and not very carbonated.

Great Coffee Imperial Stout.

Appearance: Pours viscous and black. A very dark, thin head is present around the edge of the tulip glass.

Smell: Intriguing. Not the most floral or most powerful, but quite complex. I can't quite put my finger on the dominating scent. Coffee and toffee play around with some vanilla and caramel. I do get some of the smooth oatmeal notes that add a good base and depth.

Taste: Smooth and complex. This beer certainly doesn't punch you in the face but rather plays with your taste buds. Like the nose, I can't quite put my finger on the dominating flavor. Certainly pull out some coffee notes and some yummy chocolate but there is a pleasant lack of sweetness. Great flavor.

Mouthfeel: Nothing amazing, but nothing offending. Nice carbonation and the viscosity it spot on for its style.

Overall: I really enjoyed this beer but I'm just kind of confused. There is a good amount of coffee and chocolate notes, but I just can't get a hand on what the beer is trying to do. The flavor is good, but I really have a hard time trying to figure out what they are specifically going for. Certainly enjoyed the heck out of the beer, though.

Served in a Alesmith Horny Devil snifter.

A- Pours a thick, dark black with a 2" dark cola head. Spiderweb lacing on the glass.

S- Just a crazy amount of coffee/espresso!

T- Roasted malts with a bit of char, then the coffee overtakes this beer but in a good way. slight bitter dark chocolate at the end.

M- Medium body and carbonation. Thick, creamy feel with a bit of alcohol at the finish.

O- Amazing beer! I really like FBS, but I love Wake n Bake! Terrapin needs to come into the Chicago beer soon.
