flavor: strong complex combination of roasted barley, chocolate malt, coffee, with dark fruit in background; coffee being most prevalent. aroma: very similar to flavor but stronger fruitiness. very dark and opaque. mediumlight brown lasting head. medium carbonation... got better as beer warmed and less carbonated.

When the bottle opened it was all foam, just gushed. Smelled some weird funk notes from the foam. Every time the bottle is touched or poured, it just foams. Probably infected.

GUSHER ALERT! Probably best to open this wearing a hazmat suit in your shower. Bottle, thanks to drake. Huge craggy head. Nose is a bit hot and sweet. Cinnamon toast. A bit of bile. Something’s just a bit off here. Maybr overly acidic coffee. Taste is hot caramel. Acidic toffee. Green apple. Really strong carbonation. Something’s gone amiss. Unfortunate.

Aggressive opening, comin atcha! Rather massive head like 99% of the glass is foam on the first pour. Infected i thought. Just an over carbonated fuckin Stout. The head wont stop, rediculous. Rocky,brown/tan, perpetual with skimpy lacing. Body is black as night. Nose of co2, roast and dark, chocolatey malts. Med/full bodied with a bit much on the carbonation scale, bit prickly, thick on the palate, oily and coating, sorta tangy. Roast, coffee flavors, dark chocolate and cocoa, some metallic notes as well. Dry, roasty finish. Fairly predictable and standard fair though the carbonation just makes it even less so.Silly to have to deal with that level of co2 especially in a Stout.Some one compared it to Beer Geek Brunch? Not even close. Anudder winner from CCB! Meh. Props to CraftCommander for the 750. Thanks Marco!

DrSilverworm (6979) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2014
750ml bottle, tasted at Natifest. Pours black in color, with a huge brown head. Takes a bit of time to fade to a reasonable amount. Black color. Thin ring of brown head. Leaves good thicker lace once it fades. Looks alright. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Good chewiness. Awesome coffee, moderate roast flavor. Reminds me of Mikkeller’s Beer Geek Breakfast quite a bit, but maybe with less strong of a carbonation. Big coffee, dark chocolate, bigger roast, some tobacco. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, lighter sweet. Fantastic coffee stout.

750 ml bottle to taster at NatiFest (shared by me; thanks burgers326). Looks good; heady though! A fairly opaque dull black with mocha head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells good too; dark malt, dark chocolate, and roast, all well-balanced and robust. Tastes like it smells with a robust bust pleasant mouthfeel. Good stuff!
