Mora2000 (6101) - McKinney, Texas, USA - NOV 11, 2012
On tap at the Avery Tap Takeover at The Common Table. The beer pours a pitch black color with a brown head. The aroma is full of coffee with some roasted malt thrown in. The coffee is extremely intense in the aroma, as well as the flavor. This tastes like I imagine iced espresso with a shot of alcohol would taste. There is also some roasted malt and chocolate but this is really all about the coffee. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very, very nice.

scoth (627) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 27, 2015
Bottled Oct 28, 2014. Pours inky dark, black in the glass, with a thin tan head, medium retention. Aromas of bourbon, dark chocolate, coffee, toast. cherry, grass. Full, rich body, slick, light carbonation, medium dry. Medium sweet, a tiny hint of citrus, with a boozy warming medium bitter chocolate finish. Enjoyably over-the-top.

iceman23 (3) - SINGAPORE - NOV 25, 2015 does not count
Bottled 28 Oct 2014 @ 17.81%. Pours oily black with one finger beige head. Aroma of coffee and dark chocolate. Taste is smooth combination of coffee and dark chocolate, slightly bitter and sweet at same time, with chocolate a bit more noticeable. Little alcohol burn now compared to when fresh. Bit of bourbon present but not dominating like eight months ago. Very nice! Rated 95 in March 2015 but 100 now.

unclemike (2687) - 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.

Boutip (5365) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2015
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of dry coffee notes with some light alcohol, some roasted malt and some residual sugar notes. Taste is an extreme mix of huge floral coffee notes with some dry bitter roasted malt, some alcohol and some residual sugar notes. Body is full with good carbonation and some alcohol was apparent. Not sure I need to drink this on a regular basis but still quite drinkable considering the ingredients used in this beer.

Ughsmash (7429) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Bottled. Poured inky black with very little head. The aroma picked up sour-ish bourbon over sweet coffee and vanilla notes. The flavor found meaty black and vanilla notes at the core with tart bourbon barrel and peppery spice around.. finished spicy and hot, with lots of coffee and residual sugars. Heavier-bodied and grainy.. a bit too hot, but tasty.

caesar (5971) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2015
Bottle @ Zeebra 2015, small sample. Dark color, short head. Aroma of dark roasted malts, coffee, some chocolate. Bit heavy on the coffee and the alcohol. Ok stuff.

PartyFowle (734) - - 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.

Mittenator (1609) - Michigan, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Draft at the brewery. Dark mahogany with a dark head. Coffee, dark, dry fruit and burned malt.
