Smells of strong coffee. Taste strong coffee with a slight alcohol bite. Very drinkable!

snoworsummer (4035) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 28, 2015
Draft at the brewery. Pours opaque black with a frothy, dark brown head. Smells like strong malt, coffee, toffee, burnt grain, floral and grassy hops, leather, and hints of smoke, tar, wood, alcohol, raisin, date, and prune. Tastes dry, spicy, sweet, acidic, and bitter. Medium body and carbonation.

unclemike (2747) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - NOV 6, 2015
Pours a slick black with a creamy frothy tan head. Super roasty, tons of straight-up cold-press coffee! Tastes like Starbucks, ha, really it does, a bit too much booze in the aftertaste though. Body is slick creamy and fluffy.

PartyFowle (791) - - MAY 20, 2015
Draft. Pitch black, inky. The deep cinnamon-hued head doesn’t last long. Brilliant coffee aroma. Oily, funky beans; toasted sourdough; soil and chocolate in minuscule amounts. The flavor: so very much coffee. It even overpowers the underlying Mephistopheles -- a feat I didn’t think was possible. Rich, roasty, oily. Toasted bread again, some cocoa, a finish of ethanol and spicy Arabica. Full, creamy body. Thick and smooth, like drinking thick hot chocolate. If you want to enjoy this one, you better damn well like coffee. Huge bean flavor, not a ton of stout. A little hot. Good for a few ounces, too rich for much more.

Draft at the brewery. Dark mahogany with a dark head. Coffee, dark, dry fruit and burned malt.

bergstaden (1956) - Røros, NORWAY - APR 20, 2015
Black with a brown head - Sweet malt and coffee in the aroma - Malt and coffee flavours with some bitterness in the end - The coffe and some bitterness in the finish - This was real good

Warped_Silver (124) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 26, 2015
Pours jet black with a thin khaki head. Significant amount of legs dripping down the glass. Aroma is very boozy with minimal coffee in the background. Small amount of bourbon and vanilla as well as toffee. Taste is boozy upfront with astringent coffee flavors in the middle followed by subtle chocolate, vanilla and caramel flavors in the finish. Kind of a harsh character to it at this point. Likely aging will subdue this aspect. Mouth feel is thick and viscous. Overall, a nice beer but not well-balanced this young. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cards04 (2509) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 22, 2015
A delicious beer. Pours a thick black with small dark brown head. Big coffee and lactose aromas as well as dark fruits and chocolate. For a beer this big the alcohol is very well masked. Big coffee and chocolate flavours and vinous sherry flavours as well. A nice warmth as it makes its way down to your belly. Awesome.

baraciisch (2554) - California, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Dark black in color with tan beige head... Aroma of dark chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, caramel, booze... Flavor is rich decadent dark chocolate, vanilla, and espresso... Roasted malts with lingering alcohol burn on finish... Really nice, but a little hot... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
