12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown black with a medium creamy brown head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet lactic vanilla and chocolate with some dark fruit and acidic coffee roast.

The flavor is sweet vanilla with some dark fruit and a leathery roast coffee finish. The mouhfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation and is a bit watery.

Overall, it's a bit overly sweet for me and lacking in coffee.

Towards the upper tier of imperial coffee stouts, good price for a good beer.

A: Black, love the color of that dark brown head, although the bubbles could be finer/more velvety. No carbonation can be seen. Looks a little oily- yes!

S: Pungent soil, coffee, roasted malt. Everything is great except for that dreaded floral note that pops up on some sniffs.

T: Roasted and bitter, but also sweet, malt, followed by coffee as an secondary flavor. Bitter finish, with some acidity. A touch of smoke.

F: Oily and thick, just as the appearance promised. Muted carbonation.

O: Meaty brew. I could even use more coffee, but I can't knock them for keeping it balanced. Happy I picked it up, even if my wallet isn't.

Black body; creamy, light brown head. Plum and prune aroma; roasted grain; faint chocolate and very mild hint of coffee. Flavors of milk chocolate; light alcohol presence; mild sweetness; bitter. Heavy body; silky smooth; sweet beginning through most of the experience but ending with a nice dryness.

A very pleasing, easy drinking powerhouse stout. Smooth and silky malt sweetness reinforced with an excellent dark roasted graininess and subtle boozy undertone. The hop bitterness and alcohol dryness at the finish offer a refreshing counterpoint to the malt sugars and sweetness.
