ljthiessen (617) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, - SEP 4, 2013
Bottle. Black pour with a creamy head. Aroma of chocolate, fresh cream and coffee, but also a little musty - I found it somewhat off-putting. Flavour is heavy cream, coffee, vanilla notes and a touch of smoke. Taste is better than the smell. Overall, very pleasant - definitely a treat.

Cool_Bond (1848) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2015
The aroma of chocolate and light coffee. The taste is bitter and mostly coffee. Light bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth for a long while. Not as creamy as I had anticipated me. But okay. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Bottle. Clear dark brown/mahogany with thin tan head. Aroma of malt sweetness, molasses, roasted malt, and dark chocolate. Medium body, roasted malt astringency upfront, light coffee, medium sweetness, and a dry roasted finish. Aroma was better than the flavor, but still a nice stout.

kraddel (4378) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - FEB 21, 2015
Pours black. Stable fluffy white head. Smell is roasted malts, some coffee an oaty side. Taste is mild, creamy roasted malts. Very nice mouthfeel. Intensity is ok, good as it is yet i do prefer bigger intensity. Thick ( creamy) mouthfeel. Very easy drinkable ( than again, ot is not high abv. Though about 8 ish given the intense taste and mouthfeel) . Slightly sweet roastyness, even some chocolate hints next to the coffee and oats in the aftettaste nice one

jsporrer (41) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Pours almost black with little or no head. Very nice aroma, slightly sweet. Taste is smooth but flat and somewhat dry. No harshness or bitterness. Flavor is lacking something. Not bad but not great. It was not unpleasant but I probably wouldn’t buy it again. The flavor just isn’t bold enough and a little too dry for my liking.
