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

Pours black and seems thick. Small dark khaki head. Head vanishes fairly quick and leaves a moderate amount of sticky lacing behind.

Aroma is black coffee, slightly bitter. Dark roasted malt, dark chocolate, and molasses. Tobacco.

Coffee and chocolate, both dark and a bit bitter. Roasted malt, smoke, earth, and a hint of peat. Brown sugar. Just a little bit of booze.

Thick-ish mouth feel with medium carbonation. Mild but persistent bitterness. Lingering coffee.

Very nice coffee stout. Smooth. Could use a bit of sweetness, but overall, very nice.

Pours a two finger light tan head that fades quickly to a ring leaving no lace. Black color, no highlights. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Coffee nose and flavor is almost sweet coffee, hints of dark chocolate. Higher ABV is hidden. $3.60 for a 12oz bottle at Bert's Better Beers Hooksett, NH.

Like most coffee stouts, poured this one into a coffee mug. Dark, not much head or lacing, no great shakes to look at. Strong coffee and chocolate notes on the nose. Sweet for a coffee stout, not too bitter at all. Alcohol is subtly present. Not much of the oily feeling I sometimes get from stouts either, which is nice. All in all, not a bad little beer.

L: Solid black pour with a small amount of tan head.
S: Average coffee smell. Roasted notes of vanilla or maybe even almond?
T: Fine taste. Nothing overpowering or overwhelming but nothing memorable. Some coffee stouts are rough and this is not rough. It is fine and basically pleasant.
F: Doesn't have the feel that I expect from an Imperial. Left me wanting more.
O: Didn't know what to expect and was decently surprised. Liked the coffee flavor but wasn't sure what to make of everything else that it had. I would drink it again if given the chance.
