Pours a dark brown with a light caramel head that goes away quickly. Has a light coffee smell was expecting more being advertised as cold brew. Taste is of watered down black coffee.

Pours a dark reddish-brown with a coarse thick head. Very robust coffee aroma with a nice roasted malt background. Tangy coffee and roasted malt flavor. Very well-balanced. Decent mouthfeel; a little thin with delicate carbonation. Overall, a very enjoyable coffee porter!

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Sierra Nevada Imperial Pint Glass

Pours nearly black with ruby highlights and about two fingers worth of frothy tan head, that slowly recedes into a small crown and just the smallest bit of lacing.

The smell of coffee fills the air as soon as you open the beer. Exactly what you would expect from an Imperial Coffee Stout. Nearly, but not quite, one dimensional as there are also hints of chocolate and a slight booziness.

The flavor is almost all coffee, with notes of dark roasty malts, chocolate, and a warming booziness. the mouthfeel is thick and silky smooth, with just the right amount of carbonation.

Overall, this beer is easy to drink, and is quite pleasant if you are an avid coffee drinker.

It’s not that your main man wasn’t expecting much with this offering, but it still popped louder than anything what Raulsky could have prepared himself for. It’s like you’re at the school fair and it’s that little wiener kid Elijah’s turn at the dart game. And doggone-it, first throw is a bingo! - Elijah got himself a goldfish. And that’s how I feel with Kujo; no, not a rabid dog ready for supper; but a cool as hell goldfish that chills when the chilling gets good.

Mahogany with a 1/2" tan head, which fades to a wisp. Light lacing.

Aroma is coffee, roast malt.

Taste is coffee, coffee and more coffee, roast malt. Astringent.

Medium body, light carbonation. Dry, astringent finish

One of the most coffee-like beers I've had. Very good.

Poured black with a one finger frothy tan head and moderate lacing. Nose is faint sweet malt and coffee. Taste follows the nose with a bit of dark chocolate, but the flavor is subdued. Mouthfeel is a bit thin with light carbonation.

Imperial? Barely, in my opinion. Green banana notes. Coffee for sure. More carbonation than I expected for an imperial. Good color. Good mouth feel. Walnut grill on our 24th! $9 though
