Poured a very dark brown almost black with a beautiful thick khaki head. Aroma is heavenly dark chocolate coffee mocha. The flavor is just like it smells, and it feels wonderful. An absolute wow beer, I'd love to have the opportunity to have another bottle.

Quite roasty and coffee flavor. Thick and black and not overly carbonated yet just enough fizz that makes it perfect for this type of stout. Oh so good!!!!

Bottled 1/23/17; drank 7/21/17 @ the Yarchives.

Black appearance.

A rough pour yielded a HUGE dark khaki head; thick lace.

Medium roast coffee bean, cream & rich milk chocolate notes in the nose.

Smooth, thick mouthfeel.

Medium roast coffee bean, rich cream & milk chocolate flavors up front; mild fresh earth & faint smoke notes on the finish. As this warmed, faint booze heat notes emerged.

Rich, creamy & delicious; a substantial, tasty coffee stout. Well done.

Had this one a while ago. Very dark with a creamy head reminiscent of a milkshake. Very strong coffee scent. First thought on tasting it-WOW! It's got a very roasty stout taste with sweet vanilla and plenty of coffee without it being overpowering. There's a mild alcohol burn, it's not thick or oily, and it's got a perfect balance. If this was released all the time and had a good price point, I'd probably drink it more than FBS.

Pours a viscous dark brown, with tan head ring. It pours quite slow. Nice coffee roast aroma. Some cola as well. I hope that this isn't oxidized. No, it's just baker's chocolate. This is like coffee chocolate syrup. Like if you took Hershey's syrup and added coffee to it. It cuts it nicely as I'd imagine Hershey's Syrup is probably a little too sweet for us adults. This is like adult Hershey's Syrup. It has a thick body, but it really is lacking in depth.

4 oz. sampler on tap.

Pitch black with a thin tan head.

Nose is coffee, chocolate, and cinnamon, and the taste follows. Really nice. Maple syrup, roasted malts, bitter coffee, and holiday spice. Maybe a touch of chile-like heat on the back-end.

Mouthfeel is medium to full.

Overall, one of the better Imperial Stouts I've had. 9/10

Tastes like a blend of a stout, dark chocolate and coffee liqueur. Definitely hits those marks, yet a bit aggressive on the alcohol notes.
