Draft offering served in a tulip pint. The brew appears black in color with a mocha head. A full wall of lace sticks to the glass and a swirl revives a finger back to the surface.

The nose is filled with mocha. Some sweet milky chocolate notes blend into roasty grain and day old to stale coffee. A bit of earth and mild tobacco.

The taste has some milky chocolate sweetness mixed with anise, day old coffee and mild burnt to roasty grain bitterness. Some earthen noted and almost a mild oxidative feel to it that is somewhat like wet paper/cardboard which is strange.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. A little warming feel of alcohol and a pleasant nice step up from the normal double chocolate but nothing outstanding. In fact, it gets a little boring and bland half way through the glass.

This was the beer I was hoping the latest New Belgium's LoF Imperial Coffee and Chocolate Imperial Stout would be. Dark brown with a nice frothy mocha head and nice lacing. The aroma is a huge dose of coffee and dark chocolate. Flavor starts of with a nice huge hit of dark coffee, a huge creamy dark chocolate enters mid stream and develops with its climax in the finish. Not that greatest chocolate I have tasted from a stout, but decent enough. A welcomed slight hint of some bitterness in the finish too. Mouthfeel of this thing was the weak spot, I guess it was kinda creamy but not creamy enough and at a weak medium bodied. Overall, not a FCB fan but really, really dug this beer a lot. Definitely the best beer they have got going.
