Bottle shared thanks to RandomStrangerNL. Black with short lasting dark brown head. Massive roasted coffee, sweet dark chocolate, coffee liquor, bitter old wood, lots of roasted malts, light toffee. Over medium sweet and bitter. Almost full bodied with a bit slick feel. Very nice.

Thick dark pour with slowly dissipating brown lacing. Smells espresso, vanilla. No alcohol in the finish. Very nice

rdixon77 (2328) - Georgia, USA - JUL 6, 2016
Spectacular stout. Thick black pour. Coffee, chocolate, roast, vanilla, some booze. Full bodied. Seems like it would be perfect for barrel aging...maybe I'll get to try one of those some time.

Samact (36) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 1, 2016
Bière d’une obscurité profonde. Au nez ca sent le fudge et le café. En bouche c’est merveilleux. Un goût prononcé d’espresso se marie tries bien à la vanille, au fudge et au nougat. Une barre de chocolat au nougat dans un verre. Liquide visqueux et crémeux. faible carbonation. Excellente!

Pours black with a dark brown head that quickly fades. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts present. Flavor is similar to that of the aroma, with a hint of vanilla. Perfect thick, viscous mouthfeel, exactly how a stout should feel. Great beer.

PanMarek (241) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2016
Strong coffee nose with a little chocolate. Pours dark brown with thick brown foam. Complex favors of coffee balanced with some sweet chocolate. Full body with rich mouthfeel. The malt sweetness is tempered, so the taste is less heavy. A well-balanced stout.

mixmasterob (1053) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 21, 2016
Menacing black pour with a small dark brown head. Pretty pour. Huge aroma full of fudge, rich espresso, nouget, vanilla, like a melted candy bar. Flavors were equally rich with lingering sweetened cocoa, more coffee, bitter dark malt, lingering espresso like finish. Viscous mouthfeel, slick and super smooth. Lighter carbonation. Overall a really well done mega stout from CCB.
