Nice coffee notes. Good amount of roast. Better out of a stout glass- makes it thicker, hides some of the bite (might also just be the age)

Look = 4.5 Poured cold into a Libby stout glass. Bottled on date = Oct 20 2013 so about 8 months prior to this review. Pours pitch black with 3/4 fingers of medium-brown head which reduces to a crisp ring. Lace is light but dense and sticky. Pretty.
Smell = 4.0 Coffee predominates! Roasted malts, maybe the slightest hint of sweetness. Strong aroma.
Taste = 4.0 Follows the nose in that the coffee is the focus of the taste. It’s present from the start to the finish and lasts in the aftertaste. Very creamy, a hint of sweetness. Terrific tasting coffee stout.
Feel = 4.0 Medium bodied, creamy. Low carbonation - feels like a stout should.
Drinkability = 4.0 Terrific coffee stout. Creamy and drinkable. 7.5% is low for an “imperial” as the label says but as a coffee-oatmeal stout it’s perfect.
Overall = 4.075 Solid all around. Nothing below a 4.0. Excellent coffee stout.

Smells of sweet dark fruit. It's lacking coffee and flavor in general. Pretty water, taste more like a dark ale than a coffee porter / stout. This has let me down for sure as a imperial porter.
