Had this beer as part of Beer Quest 2010 with the guys. This was beer number 30. Great stout. Pours dark with lasting head. Aroma is roasted chocolate malts. Black as night. Great flavor which is very roasty.

toffe & mocha aromas mixed with coffee (made with organic coffee). initial flavor was smooth and mild, but almost immediately the coffee jumped forward along with the roased malt body. If it were a bit creamier in the palate, it would be close to one of my favorites of all times - farmer johnís oatmeal stout.

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - FEB 8, 2010
On tap at the Alchemist 02.05.10 Black in color with a light brown head. Strong aroma of coffee with roast, some caramel. Taste is nice and roasty, with alot of coffee...the coffee dries it out, but it does have enough body to back it up. Coffee bitterness and flavor lingers nicely in the finish. Very nice.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2010
A deep dark stout with a thick receeding lacing dark brown head. Intense aroma of coffee grinds, earthy, chocolate, quite well perceived. In mouth, an intense yet pleasant bitter chocolate with light coffee grounds, well balanced and quaffable. On tap at brewpub, Jan. 11 2009.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - MAR 25, 2008
Draft at the Blind Tiger. Black pour with a light brown ring of head. Aroma is roasted malt, slightly sweet black licorice. The mouthfeel is pretty smooth and soft. The flavor has a nice balance of sweet chocolate and fruit and the bitter dryness of coffee / roasted malt. This stout was still good when I found the bottom of the glass.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Best beer of the Vermont beer event. Strong bitter coffee aroma, lightly veregtal, cheese. Palate is a bit thin, tastes more like stale coffee and a bit of spoiled veggies. Still, while cold, this is a tasty and quenching beer. Just donít let it get warm.
