I had this on draught at the brewery. It pours a deep walnut color with a tan head and lacing. It smells of freshly-brewed coffee, roasted malt, cocoa, and a whiff of caramel. The taste features dark roasted coffee, roasted malt, nuts, and a hint of hops and the finish. For a stout, the feel is quite thin, with minimal carbonation. The 9% ABV is noticeable but not overwhelming. Overall, this stout is rather thin in body and one-dimensional in its taste. It would benefit from some additional caramel and dark fruit.

Jet black pour. Some lacing after the head dissolves. Smells of roasted malts, coffee and a little char. Taste is loaded with coffee but not overly bitter. Smooth finish with even more coffee leftovers. Local here in Southern NJ. If you're here, look for this between $14-$15 bucks for a sixer

Deep dark brown to black with creamy lacey head. Layers of nose- like baked goods in a coffee shop. Roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, and toffee notes. Creamy and delicious. So good!

A- beautifully dark. Nice pillowy tan head that was much higher than I expected on a 9% abv beer.

S- I get a chocolate milk mixed with coffee smell. Not like a deep dark chocolate with lactose sweetness but literally I just made myself a glass of chocolate milk and added some coffee extract type smell. Almost borders on that of the smell of freeze dried coffee.

T- pretty much follows the smell. I know this is labeled as an imperial coffee stout but it taste like an imperial chocolate milk stout with coffee. Kinda like if I were to mix a moohoo with a schlafly coffee stout. There is a slightly weird bitterness at first but it fades quick and may just be the Jersey water.

M- was worried that the carbonation would be off the chart with the size of the head but it's pretty spot on and creamy.

O- definitely impressed. Is it worth the $3 bottle price? Maybe once in a while. It's no fbs but it's definitely no slouch and glad that there is such a quality brew that can be had in state.

A - Solid black with a thin, fluffy light tan head.
S - Amazing here! Very roasty and a tad bit sweet, with some hints of hazelnut. The smell of dark coffee brewing in the morning.
T - Here's where it loses some steam and becomes very one-dimensional. Still coffee, but much more bitter. More of a coffee grounds taste than the actual coffee. A slight off, maybe even funky, taste makes an appearance as well. Aftertaste of used stale coffee filters.
M - Medium. Slightly thinner than average for a 9.0% stout.
O - Not great, not terrible. Could use a less bitter taste with more of a flavor profile than just in your face coffee grounds. But to any lover of black coffee, I'd say it's worth a try.
