A heavy strong stout brewed with coffee, brown sugar and oats. With its powerful quality and morning ingredients it seems parallel to a solid dawn session at Blacks. An inside connection to boutique roasted fare trade beans we were granted the opportunity to make this exceptional brew.

Dark black. Heavy and oily at same time. Kinda bitter at first then rounds out to coffee. Roasted. Ok but not worth seeking out. Would like this thicker. Tasted at cuginos.

Jet black pour with a tan head. Very nice aromas of dark roast coffee, dates, raisin, licorice toffee and black treacle. Full bodied brew. Flavours of smoke, sweet spice, lots of dark roast coffee and dark chocolate. Dry, smoky finish. Very tasty stuff.

Jultsu (753) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - JAN 22, 2016
BBE merkkaamaton, kuulemma kellarikypsytetty vähintään vuoden verran. Musta väri, mieto crememäinen vaahto joka häipyy nopeasti. Tuoksussa makeutta, nenää nyrpistävää etikkaa ensin alkuu, muuntuu lakritsaksi hetken päästä. Suutuntuma vetisehkö, leipäinen, maltaisen nenääkaivelevan lakritsainen, lämmettyään lakritsasoituu. Osuu ja uppoaa, mutta edelleen lievä laimea vetisyys ja ylärungon puute häiritsee.

Pours black with a beige head from the bottle with lots of roast and coffee notes on the nose. taste is bold and full of chocolate and toffee. Not too heavy and loooong finish!

Capa (2766) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Black with a beige head. Powdered cocoa, burnt malt, roasted coffee. A bit brown sugar sweetness. Finish has a hefty booze note. Pretty good but a bit too burnt malt for my liking.

chinchill (4327) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Poured from a 500 mL bottle into a Porter Bar goblet. . Appearance: black with short head of brown foam. . Aroma: moderately strong aromas of dark coffee and dark roasted grains. Hints of vanilla and alcohol. Flavor: Lightly sweet; lots of dark roasted grain and a moderate amount of fine coffee. Hints of chocolate and vanilla. Mouthfeel: Rich, full body with a good level of light carbonation; very smooth. Overall: a satisfying RIS that makes good use of coffee but leans towards a milk stout.

This beer is amazing! Coffee in the aroma in such a good way. Doesn’t drink too heavy, but definitely has a nice full body. I’ve had on Nitro and from the bottle and they are outstanding both ways!

Just some comments and ratings: Black body, coffee, chocolate. More coffee and some roasted notes. Bit watery
