Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 12.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Jet Black, with an off-white head. Starts with a strong coffee and dark chocolate sensation, then fades to a multitude of toasty, roasty and caramel malt flavors. Clean and crisp, full- bodied. Warmth from the high alcohol content lightens up the feel. You won't fool your taste buds - this beer is HUGE!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured 750ml bottle into snifter (dated 8/15/13) with some decent mocha colored head, color is a pitch black.

Aroma - roasted coffee, dark fruit, chocolate

Taste - roasted malt, lots of coffee, caramel, vanilla, loved the coffee flavor booze/bitterness was definitely noticeable on the finish

Mouthfeel - full body, medium carb, a bit creamy

Overall - one of the better coffee beers I've had. This is a big bottle though, need to split this with at least 2 or 3 others.
