Decent stout. Has a heavy coffee taste to it. Also some cocoa as well as some bitterness. Overall solid, but I much prefer sweeter stouts and this is more classic in taste.

Starkly matte black with a bubbly coffee froth-like blanket.

Roasty, almost metallic, and a little savory, the coffee comes at you mocha thick, but a crisp carbonation sharpened by the malt lifts a mild spicy cinnamon before the semi-sticky, nutty yet semi-bitter finish that's a little woody.

I was hoping for more but admittedly this bottle was a bit over the hill.

Poured from a 750mL bottle into an angry chair pint glass.

Pours a deep brown body with a one finger brown head that sticks around for a while, reducing to a ring of foam.

Aromas of cocoa and chocolate ice cream, coffee and light cinnamon churro. Aromas aren’t potent, subtle but inviting.

On the tongue, I get initial flavors of toasty coffee and cocoa nibs, followed by lightly sweet milk chocolate, finishing with light cinnamon sugar doughnuts, vanilla notes. Mouthfeel is medium, low carbonation, velvety and smooth.

Enjoyable beer, nothing really stuck out to me but nonetheless a tasty, easy drinking stout.

22oz bottle poured into a snifter

Pours deep black with a thin foamy khaki head that has short retention. Smells of coffee, roasted malt, chocolate and undertones of cinnamon. Taste follows the nose with flavors of mocha coffee, milk sugars & a hint of vanilla. Mouthfeel is medium body with low carbonation, creating a bit of a slick finish. Nice mix of coffee and cinnamon that plays well on the base beer

750 mL bottle. Pours very dark with no head. Coffee and cinnamon aroma. Smells very sweet, too. Tastes of coffee and cinnamon. Sweet chocolate. Lactose in the back end. Heavy and sweet, At first, I thought it was way too sweet. But the coffee and cinnamon are just enough to keep it interesting.

Had this to myself and felt guilty for not sharing. Imperial Awakening is a big step up from the base beer and the cinnamon brings it home for the win. Love Angry Chair.
