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

Unknown vintage; drank 3/13/15 @ the Yarchives.

Brown/black appearance.

Small dark khaki head; nice lace.

Banana, roasted coffee & faint booze heat notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Banana, roasted coffee & chocolate syrup flavors up front; a smooth aftertaste with the faintest hop bite on the lips. Booze heat emerged as this warmed.

A nice, easy to drink coffee stout.

Strong coffee (in a good way). A little thin. Good taste. No alcohol taste given the strength.

Solid dark brown color with just above average body with medium light carbonation
Aroma is espresso, malt, fresh made black coffee, roasted malts and coffee beans
Taste comes off as black coffee followed by roasted malts, espresso and roasted coffee beans. Mild coffee bitterness and slightly sweet that seems to not only come from malt but dried fruit as well.
Overall a really nice body to this beer with an excellent aroma. The flavor lived up to the aroma and was complex and very flavorful

Bottle poured into Delirium Tremens tulip glass.

Haven't had this for a few years and was one of the first coffee stouts that I tried when first venturing into the world of beer. I remember thinking it was amazing back then.

Pours a viscous black with tiny tan head. Smells of dark chocolate and instant coffee. Quite bitter and astringent; could do with a little more sweetness. Somewhat thin but oily mouthfeel. Not as good as I remember but still pretty decent. Cheers

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours pitch black with a small light brown head. Smells of roasted coffee and slight grape. Tastes of coffee and sweet fruitiness, but in a good balance. Beer is full bodied, good carbonation, and a nice sipper but still goes down easily. Overall, a very good beer.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. code of 036B16, so I'm guessing bottled February 2016?

Pours thick and oily. Jet black body, even when held up to the light. small dark tan head, which gradually dissipates to nothing at all. no lacing.

A boozy sweetness on the nose. Coffee is only faint.

Taste is a little tangy. Booze is certainly present. Coffee is only a suggestion, may have mellowed with the age? Roasted malt and vanilla are also present. Coffee and vanilla get a little more prominent a the beer warms up.

Mouth is about medium, a little on the thin side for an imperial stout. Faint alcohol burn on the back of the mouth.

Overall, a good sipping beer.
