Full of flavor. Adequate coffee taste added with the roasted malt creates a terrificly delightful beer. Not for anyone who hates coffee, that is for sure.

Bottle. Pours black with a light tan head. A lot of coffee and roast malts on the aroma, though not overpowering. The flavor is also coffee driven - indeed, Iíd say itís closer to an iced coffee than a beer. But itís not unbalanced, and there are a lot of nice chocolate and roasted malt notes. A bit more coffee-heavy than Iíd prefer, but a very nice example of the style. It reminds me of a slightly less intense Speedway Stout - a lot of similar character.

Pours black with brownish thick head. Smells of chocolate, fresh coffee and roasted malt. Super smooth tastes of sweet chocolate, roasted malt and a cup of dark roast coffee. Pretty amazing. Light body medium carbonation. Only negative is it could become a bit sweet if you were to have a few.

Nice beer. The aroma is huge coffee grounds. The taste is very well balanced, lots of coffee in the finish and a well temoered bitterness, but up front I got a lot of chocolate. Loved it. Definitely would pick this up again. Go Bells,

Thick pour with no head. Coffee, chocolate fudge, malts smell. Smooth texture and taste like aroma but with a little bit of peanut butter mixed in(weird). A good coffee stout.

I drink coffee all day at work and transitioning to this beer was very easy. The 7.5% makes all the difference. It is very smooth like a Guinness with some real ass behind it. Bellís always does a good job of making beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Strong coffee aroma with lots of toffee and candy. Pours deep reddish brown, almost black with a small amount of head. Strong coffee flavor with nuts, candy. Some sour notes and tannin. Thin body (for a stout) with a pleasent bittery aftertaste and a slight alcohol warming sensation.

Wow. This beer is wonderful. It certainly lives up to its name. Very strong coffee flavor, and aroma. Full bodied, good stuff.

Canít really add anything insightful to whatís already been said. This is loaded with coffee. One jet black pour too although no head on mine. It is a good stout. Want to compare it with a Wake and Bake though.
