A- Pitch black pour with a bubbly tan head that leaves a thin layer of bubbles after it settles.

S- Roasty, bready malts, faint aroma of bitter coffee, slight boozy aroma.

T- Starts out as a smooth and roasty RIS, but a huge blast of bold roasted coffee shows up towards the end and stays through the finish. The bottle mentions blueberry notes in the coffee and there definitely is a dried fruit note towards the end, almost like dried fruit in a tea. The coffee used in this beer is really unique. It is subtle, but has bold flavors that come through. I know that is sort of an oxymoron, but it is hard to describe.

M- Full bodied, medium carbonation, a big bold sipper.

O- A big coffee stout. As I mentioned, the style of coffee makes this one unique, which is a nice change of pace from the many coffee imperial stouts out there. A solid offering.
