Beer pours out a good head, the first time tonight the head actually almost poured out of the glass. As I took a drink of the overflowing head I did notice the resemblance to Founder's Breakfast Stout having had one within a month. The smell is sooo coffee filled and nice! The malts are less chocolatey than Founder's Breakfast Stout, but they are still really awsome!! The taste is very coffee, very nice. Smooth mouthfeel makes it very nice as well. There is a bit of oatmeal in the after taste. Overall this is very nice and I will enjoy the last 3 of these fine beauts. So good I had two tonight!

12oz bottle, scooped a 4 pack at Riley's and havent seen it elsewhere yet as Spank me Baby is still overflowing the shelves.

Given that Whos Your Daddy was one of the finest beers i have ever tasted, i have high hopes for this similar sounding effort

appearance: pours into a snifter...body is absolute darkness, black as night...foamy chocolate head forms and leaves a decent lace around the rim. highly appealing

smell: fresh grounded coffee beans that comes through rather strong, vanilla, hazelnut (OMG not hazelnut!!!), light toffee, creamy chocolate covered coffee beans...dark, robust and mysterious

taste: This is quite good, but I think I wanted it to be too much like Who's Your Daddy. strong roasted coffee dominates the flavor profile - highly roasted, light burnt flavour, vanilla, hazelnut, light oak. The finish leaves a little something to desire if you ask me as it falls a little flat when the initial burst of coffee wears out. I love coffee, i love beer, so this is right up my alley

mouthfeel: smooth and creamy, strong rich coffee presence, trace booze in the finish

drinkability: pretty good

Picked up a couple 4-packs at Riley's here in Madison. If this is anything like their Who's Your Daddy with coffee I think I might just faint.

Pour: deep, rich coffee black under 3 fingers of chunky, thick, cocoa-tinted foam that fades to a creamy cappuccino foam leaving solid lacing down the walls of my Duvel tulip.

Nose: fresh roasted double-strength coffee, charred coffee grounds, chicory, vanilla-oak, toffee and cocoa nibs. Just a luscious aroma.

Taste: smooth espresso, vanilla creme, roasted malt, rich toffee, some sweet dark fruits, toasted grain and a lingering coffee bean/dark cocoa bitterness. Simply luxurious on the palate.

Feel: silky smooth and thinner than I expected, but that's a good thing.

Drinkability/Overall: Another Imperial Porter home run by Tyranena. A mash-up of Founders Breakfast Stout and their vanilla/hazelnut bomb, Who's your Daddy that mixes the best of both while muting their over-the-top characteristics. Two 4's are definitely not enough for this one. I will be stocking up post-haste. I'd say hurry up and get this but I want it all for myself.
