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.

This is a stout that combines two of my favorite things in the world: coffee & beer. Not just a little bit of coffee, a whole lot of it. You can smell it on the nose, but as soon as you taste it the flavor is intense. Its a deep black with a tiny head

Aroma of black coffee, oak and roasted malt. A bit one-note, but nice. Looks great - Midnight black with the slightest amount of light tan foam. Taste is strong coffee bitterness with undertones of roast, cream, oak and vanilla. Underwhelming palate. Good beer, but I could use more. A thicker palate and higher ABV would help. The coffee just overpowers everything.

sudomorph (994) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 14, 2016
355ml bottle bottled 09/11/14. Pours a near black with a thin tan head that thins to a ring. Aroma has big, smooth notes of roasted malts, coffee, nut shells, dark chocolate, and traces of caramel. Taste is balanced with lots of cold-pressed coffee, dark roasted malts, chocolate, slight dark fruits, and an espresso bitter ending. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a bone dry finish. Overall a really nice coffee beer. Still lots of coffee with smooth roast. Highly recommended.

12 ounce bottle from Bine & Vine, purchased 14 months ago ($3.49). "Packaged 09/11/14." POURS dark brown (almost black) with a half finger of brown foam. AROMA of rough-ground dark coffee, roasted and lightly smoky malts, roasted nuts, with some fading chocolate. FLAVOR mainly of strong coffee (creamy espresso-laden cafe au lait comes to mind), with additional notes of vanilla, creamy chocolate, and Kahlua (though this is not very sweet at all). Some lingering coffee-bitterness. A nice creamy mouthfeel. Not particularly complex but really very well executed, and that goes a long way. (1532, 1001)

Solid beer, but the coffee flavor doesn’t come through as much as I’d like in a (borderline) Imperial Coffee Stout

jflopsu (910) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 4, 2016
Pours a dark black. Has a strong chocolate, coffee, and malt aroma. A nice mixed flavor of chocolate, coffee, vanilla, caramel and a malt bitterness. A sweet but dry aftertaste.

Black pour with a ruby hue and tan head with light lacing ... Aroma of fresh coffee beans, dark chocolate, roasted malts and caramel malts very strong coffee aroma .... Taste is of rich coffee, dark chocolate/cocoa, roasted malts and caramel malts .... Has some bitter hop bite on the back end that lingers into the finish which is very dry and rich..... Body is full and the abv is hidden well .... Mouthfeel is slick and oily

Another great stout from bells. Had six pack from Holmes. Great aroma of roasted coffee and taste too. Nice thick malty stout with plenty of body. Great beer
