Pours very dark with fantastic foamy head that tastes great. Coffee aroma with notes of chocolate. Sweet and creamy, gentle coffee flavor mixed with strong vanilla and milk chocolate. Carbonation adds to a creamy texture. Overall a fantastic coffee imperial stout.

L - pours thick dark brown, like motor oil. Vibrant light brown head that dissipates moderately quickly. Love the label too! EDIT: I got one of those big disgusting booger things. My first time! I'm not sure how I feel about it, but I'm not easily grossed out and I understand it's a thing that sometimes happens, so "look" is only gonna take a quarter point hit here.

S - deep, nutty cinnamon aroma. Mexican hot chocolate, molasses, and caramel candies. Loads of vanilla sweetness backed by a lactose fullness. Cloy, here we come.

T - bright toasted almonds and vanilla. Graham crackers. Figs, mushrooms, and regular coffee. There's a bit of citrus twang, maybe limes and clementine. As predicted, it is sweet and sugary. Cane sugar, to be precise. Brown sugar and golden syrup. Finishes boozey warm and like my teeth are wearing little sugary sweaters.

F - on the thinner side of 13%, but still features a hefty, viscous satisfaction.

O - at the onset, this one is sweet, but manageable. Boy though, once it starts warming and you're halfway through and feeling the buzz, the decadence hits you like a freight train. Exotic coffee, plenty of guilty pleasure coffee toppings, and that smooth vanilla to keep you coming back for more.

Very Dark color when poured. Clowdy white head when poured. Lacing was a Brownish Red color at the top of the beer. Alcohol fairly well hidden behind a mild coffee flavor with some lighter chocolate. Vanilla was not up front but lingers on the tongue after each sip. Very good slow sipping beer!

Mid sized bottle, direct from the source in Brooklyn, NY

Pour here is super dark and murky, minor cap, minimal lacing

Big and bold nose filled with milk chocolate , cafe au lait, vanilla and oranges

Super thick and viscous, smooth as a can be in the mouth

Full flavor, over the top delicious, world class night capper or with a death by chocolate kinda dessert...drinking great now, zero need to age ... terrific stuff ... go get some
