MrHangover (3949) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2013
Sample @ GABF 13. Pours a pitch black brew with a medium sized, creamy beige head on top. Aroma is massive coffee, oaks and peppers. Flavour is sweet, licorice and peppery. Some alcoholic burning sensation in the back of the flavor. Sweetness is a bit overwhelming sometimes, but itís still a very decent brew.

Special tapping at Avery's for GABF 2013. After drinking a pint of out of mind, I find this ridiculously strong. Not in a bad way at all. This beer is quit enjoyable. Very dark brown pour (zero transparency), with a thick dark tan head. The flair is quite intense, with a strong bitterness from the coffee. At 16% alc, this is not a session beer; but considering the strong palate it's quite drinkable. Overall this beer is a fantastic and unique imperial stout.

phaleslu (9380) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Draft at the brewery. Pours an opaque brown - near black - with a finger of dark tan head. Looks good. Aroma of coffee, molasses, chocolate, dates, and a lot of dry, toasty, and roasty malts. The flavor is the same, but with more dark chocolate and a more obvious Belgian character. Full-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a rich, roasty mouthfeel. So rich. Some bitterness. For one of the highest-rated coffee stouts ever, this was a little disappointing. I liked it but had higher expectations.

On tap the brewery. Pour is pitch black with a frothy brown head and great lacing. Big coffee, chocolate, light bourbon, woody, vanilla, light anise, and licorice in the aroma. Taste is big dark chocolate, espresso, vanilla, big wood, dark fruits, toffee, and caramel with a little heat on the backend. Sticky mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Amazing stout and I canít believe itís that high in alcohol.
