Huge amount of delicious coffee and chocolate aromas, and vanilla smell. All the aromas blend in just the right way!
A very dark brown/black color. This beer has a nice brown head, good retention. It pours like a dense black with a cappuccino colored head.
It's just what you would except with this beer, just like the aroma. Plenty of black coffee that isn't particularly acidic, which mixes with the oatmeal to make a very rich taste together. Included in the taste is milk chocolate, with a mild earthy bitterness.
Medium carbonation, good malt character, light hops. It's heavy, and creamy. You don't even realize it is a high ABV, its an easy drinker and dangerously delicious!
Chocolate cheesecake, chocolate coffee gelato, chocolate chip cookies, anything chocolate!!
Modern Times consistently does coffee beers like no other brewery I've discovered. It's an amazing mix of all flavors. It packs great flavor in an easy drinker. It's one of the best imperial stouts out there! It's a great tasting beer and you don't even realize the amount of alcohol this beer punches out! I would highly recommend this beer for all drinkers.
