If you like coffee, and you like beer, and you like them together, in the same glass, you will love this seasonal from Austin Beerworks. They put out a lot of great beers and this one toes the line. Initially, you think you're drinking carbonated coffee, then the beer flavor comes in at the end and you realize you just had a sartorial moment that will leave you changed for life.

Very light for an imperial stout. Slight metallic smell. Ok.
