Notes: Hey there, tiger: lose control (and like it) with a little I'm So Excited, I'm So Scared. This ferociously coffee-d imperial stout is just like grabbing a booth at The Max, then hunkering down for a study sesh' with a big pot o' joe. Coffee aroma so good it’ll have you yelling “FRESH POTS!” Rock and roll? You ain't seen nothing yet.

Nice head that forms after a subtle poor, intense coffee smell and flavor (i love coffee), tastes amazing and the sweetness sits on your lips. Smooth almost bubbly.. Love this beer.

Cloudy dark brown like coffee with just a little cream. Aroma is smooth, roasted coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and nuts. The taste is bright and balanced for the abv and provides a full coffee flavor without being aggressive. The bitter roast cuts through the sweetness and lingers on the palate, but never overpowers the next sip. Cocoa and mocha are present with almonds and lots of vanilla. Medium mouth feel is clean and smooth. An excellent coffee beer that distinguishes itself with balanced flavor and feel.

FB did a great job on this brew!
The coffee notes push the limits of my sensory system. With every sip the pungent coffee tricked my mind into thinking I just put my nose in fresh coffee grounds.
A 10% beer that drinks like a 6%, super crushable imperial stout. It wasn't boozy, overly decedent or overwhelming in any way. A little syrupy but in a good way and just enough carbonation to not leave it flat. 10/10 would smash this over and over.

one of my favorite beers of all of them that we had here at funky buddha! a huge imperial stout with a ton of coffee and some vanilla too. unlike a lot of their other super strong flavored beers, this one doesnt have nearly as much sweetness to it, even with the warm vanilla in here, and i think that helps the coffee stand out more. its shiny in the globe glass, obsidian black and with a good inch of cream colored head, very attractive on the pour. aroma is heavy coffee, almost deeper and darker and more roasted than the barley in the stout itself. this is a heavy beer in terms of flavor, and the heavy coffee really is needed to come through this much, i wonder how much they added? the vanilla gives it a cool complex nature, but its pretty straightforward in the taste, where the coffee and the dark grains do all of the flavoring, and the vanilla just comes on late, almost after the swallow, starting the cycle all over again. i taste this one forever really, and even though its not sweet, it never really finishes, which i like in good coffee, and i like here. for how strong and bold this beer is, its not overly full bodied, its smooth and rich, but not chewy or any denser than it needs to be. seemingly more balanced than a lot of the other outlandish beers they make here, and just really really good coffee beer overall.

Another impressive Imperial Stout from Funky Buddha. This one comes with a nice rich mocha flavor that wallows on your pallet long after the beer is down your throat. I really hope they make this a regular.

I really enjoyed this beer. I picked it up while on vacation this past December in Florida, and find my self fortunate to have found it. Dark, minimal head, coffee, chocolate and caramel are abundant in this.
