This was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a nice looking dark brown close to black color with a slim brace of a small off white head that quickly dissipated into nothing. The smell had a fantastic amount of sweet to rich and bitter coffee beans running into the cocoa powder sweetness strolling about. The taste takes in the previously mentioned flavors to blend sweetly and eloquently. Light sweet and bitter coffee aftertaste leading into the finish nicely. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fairly decent sipping quality about it. Carbonation runs super light allowing a stellar smooth to creamy sort of sticky feel on my tongue. Overall, I say this was a wonderful Imperial Stout that I would love to have again.

Served in a snifter from the bottle.

Appearance: super thick dark brown to black body with an extra dark tan head rising a notch above a finger's length.

Smell: Heavy coffee scent, actually closer to espresso.

Taste: Malts and smooth bitterness which has a dark chocolate feel to the beer. Sweet notes but don't think it's one of those molasses sweet beers...has hot milk and espresso feel which definitely beyond satisfies my palates.

Mouth: Little dry with medium carbonation and heavy stickiness to the brew.

Overall: Monster brew, incredible fight courtesy of my wife...think she knows my palates better than me. You see it you buy it and huge props to Cerveceria Montseny in Barcelona, Spain for producing this little beast. Salud

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass at around 1 year old. Appearance is jet black with a little bit of dark brown coloring around the edges. There is almost no head at all. Smell is fairly heavy bourbon, which is interesting since it isn't barrel aged. There are also notes of dark roasted coffee, caramel malt, brown sugar and maybe pecans. Taste follows the nose with good sweetness throughout and fairly little bitterness. There is a lot of roasted malt/coffee flavor that gives this a nice edge. Otherwise, the mouthfeel is chewy, ,smooth and fairly thick with low carbonation. There is also a slightly watery finish that makes this imperial stout fairly drinkable.

Overall, this is a very enjoyable coffee stout, but it is a notch below the best in style. The smell is amazing and the roasted coffee flavors are very good. However, it is a little too sweet. Also, the mouthfeel, although very smooth, does not quite bring it all together.

2016 vintage
No bottle date, but around 6 months since purchase / release

Appearance- Pours a black color, oily thick body, completely opaque. Thin layer of dark tan colored head, soapy / bubbly. Tons of spotty head lacing on glass. Alcohol legs coat glass with a dark film-like layer.

Aroma- Cold brewed coffee, bitter, earthy ashy smoke, dry cocoa. Roasted malt, charred wood, bittersweet dark chocolates. Dark fruits, hints of toffee and caramel.

Taste- Bittersweet dark chocolates, charred malts, cocoa, espresso, smoky undertones. Dark fruits, licorice, molasses, savory umami character. Coffee on the finish w/ a lingering bitterness.

Feel- Full bodied, thick and chewy, mouth coating. Lower carbonation, very silky and smooth.

Overall- Coffee comes through up front with a rich espresso bean quality, but then there is an aggressive cold brewed coffee type presence that lingers on the aftertaste. The base beer is enveloped in coffee, but at the same time it is not overpowerd. A lot of the roasty, smoky, savory notes from the base beer still shine through.
