Draft at Fischmans.

Brownish black, mocha tinged foam that laces a little bit here and there.

Roasty aroma, sweet chocolate, chicory, carob.

Mild coffee in the taste, chocolate and dry roastiness in the aftertaste. Up front it's a little sweet for my taste. Medium bodied with a creamy feel.

Dark in color - looks dark and rich like a chocolate truffle. Medium coffee nose with cocoa and mocha notes. The mocha esque feel comes through with the smooth mouthfeel and the deep full flavor. An excellent imperial stout. Hits all the right notes without going overboard on the booziness.

Sampled at a tasting event on 4/14/14. Imperial Stout with coffee added. The smell was the best characteristic of the beer, they definitely chocked a lot of coffee into this one. I didn't ask what coffee was used but it was something high end. The mouthfeel was a little thin; but the beer was still enjoyable. I'm unsure if they have a barrel program at Temperance but this is a perfect candidate to spend some time in a cellar. I'll look for this again.
