On tap it poured black with a thin and quickly fading light brown head. Smells of sweet roasted malt and coffee. Tastes rich and roasty with a lot of coffee and dark chocolate. A bit thin but a really great breakfast stout.

The color is blackish. Think darker than a cola but not jet black. The nose is coffee heavy with mild sweet notes of caramel and chocolate. You will notice viscosity on the pour with decent lacing. The flavor is even more coffee-dominated and comes close to overwhelming the other flavors of rich toffee. The mouthfeel is full body with a texture that is creamy. A bit too coffee heavy for me but overall a solid beer.

This stout pours to a thin, brief-lived pebbly tan head on an impenetrably black body; the only highlight is a ruby-litten line at the bottom of the glass. A slight appearance of viscosity is notable on the pour; lacing is fair, consisting of fine-grained, retreating bands. The aroma is moderate in intensity, predominately sweet coffee with cream, backed by hints of chocolate and booze. The flavor is even more coffee-dominated, with the barest hints of chocolate and toffee; the coffee character here is more bitter than the nose would suggest, and has a pleasing depth and richness. The finish has a modest coffee presence, followed by a more assertive bitter coffee linger that sticks around for a few minutes. The mouthfeel is on point for the full body; the texture is a bit better than medium-creamy, and on the peppery side for a stout- the carbonation is just a bit too aggressive. Between the flavor and the relatively low ABV (for an imperial stout), this is definitely a prime breakfast beer. (growler)

Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a shaker pint, the beer is jet black, with a dark tan halo of head. Nose of coffee, subtle maple, chocolate, and molasses. Flavors are roasted and creamy forward, with coffee, tangy crème, bittersweet chocolate, and earthy notes. Smooth, dry, and mid-bodied, with a coffee and chocolate aftertaste. Smooth, slow, dry finish. Nice.

Dark pour with a rich roasted malty flavor. Almost meaty. Very umami. Coffee addition really comes through in the second half and in the long aftertaste. Pleasantly bitter and measured coffee flavor. Very much a winter sipper
