COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The satisfying elements of both stout and coffee come together in this full-bodied treat. A marriage of Sumatra's best with rich chocolate and roasted malt provides for a truly enlightening beer.

Very dark in color with a nice carmel colored head that holds for quite a while. Smells like chocolate. Awesome taste of caramel, chocolate and coffee. This is one of the best beers I have had from Bells and as far as that goes any other brand. Nice job! Truly magnificent.

Biroholik (627) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - APR 25, 2016
Stout uwarzony z dodatkiem ziaren kawy Sumatra. Kawa używana powszechnie w sieci restauracji Starbucks.
Kolor nieprzejrzyście czarny. Piana potężna, jasno beżowa, drobnopęcherzykowa. Długo pływa po powierzchni i pięknie krążkuje. Nad piwiem unosi się gruby, conajmniej 2-centymetrowy wianuszek. W aromacie dosłownie eksplozja ziaren kawy. Tak mocny aromat kawy czułem kiedyś w piwie Browar Leśniczówka Coffee Smoked Tobacco Ale Aged On Tabacco ;-))) Głęboko pod nimi ukryte są akcenty gorzkiej czekolady i oczywiście mocna paloność. W smaku obawiałem się wysokiej kwaskowatości pochodzącej od mocnej kawy. Tymczasem otrzymałem intensywną kawę, ale zbalansowaną akcentami mlecznej czekolady. Wraz z nimi dodać do całości należy: karmel, wanilię i prażone orzechy. Goryczka średnia stanowiąca połaczenie sugestii kawowych z czekoladowymi. Subtelne drapanie na języku od palonych ziaren kawy. Wysoka pijalność i fenomenalnie gęsta faktura. Śmiało mogę powiedzieć, że to jedno z najlepszych piwa jakie piłem w USA (a i najlepszych w moim życiu również). Browar Bells chyba wysuwa się na prowadzenie. Tuż za nim Founders Brewing Co.

neongolden (1101) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2016
(355ml bottle shared @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, April 21 2016) Pours very dark brown with an average medium tan head and lace. Aroma is coffee beans with green pepper, caramel, roast, slight chocolate. Flavour is slightly less green pepper but still coffee bean dominated. Slightly spicy roast over a light to moderately sweet core of caramel, drying to a fairly bitter finish with coffee beans, a bit of dried leaves and vanilla. Medium bodied, average carbonation. I would love it if it had the green pepper bean character dialed down a touch but it’s still a nice non-imperial coffee stout.

FatPhil (12736) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 23, 2016
355ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut! - bottled 20Nov15
Big chilli bean aroma - a bit harsh - some tobacco. More mellow in the mouth, soft and smooth palate. A bit beany in finish. Not doing it for me. Too many beans.
