COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

On tap at Stateside Craft, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out Belgian yeast, roasted malt and light cocoa. Flavour is very Belgiany, with loads of Belgian yeast and roasted malt, and a touch of vanilla. Extremely robust, with a rather light palate. Good stuff.

Draught @ Stateside Craft.
Medium brown, light bubbly head. Aroma is a coffee blast with light fruitiness and a hint of chocolate. Sweet front, lots of coffee/chocolate character, with big body. Call it a strong coffee stout, more than impy, but nerdy semantics aside, it’s a quality brew.

1pt.9oz bottle from Kenny Rd Market. Pitch black pour with thin light tan head. Aroma of roasty, licorice, coffee, chocolate. Tastes are along the same lines with bakers chocolate and heavy on the coffee (which suits me). Yeah, good easy drinking coffee stout.

500 ml bottle. From alesbymail.co.uk.
From dusk till dawn... Black colour with a mid-size tan head. Coffee... strong coffee, roasted malt, cocoa powder, chili (?) and chocolate in the aroma. The flavour is roasted malt, berries, mild bitterness, mild sourness and... a hint of chocolate. Nice. Tasty.

50 cl bottle.
Pours black color with a small beige head. Dark berries on the nose, dry, ashy malts, cocoa powder and dark chocolate, distant coffee also. Lactic notes on the flavor, chocolate, caramel, mild vanilla, some faint berry notes, coffee and faint yeast. I like the coffee and cocoa notes here, the flavor is a bit off though. Very interesting and somewhat unique still.

tiong (3939) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 20, 2014
500ml bottle

Pours pitch black with a smooth head. Aroma of coffee, roastiness, salty licorice, dark chocolate and syrup. Taste is salty, roasty and sweetish with some licorice, dark chocolate and coffee. Finish is smooth, salty and slightly roasty with some coffee and syrupy notes. Slightly unbalanced.

50 cl bottle @ home
Aroma has mocha coffee, some peppery tones and vanilla. Flavour has salty licorice, ash, more salt and distant herbal tones. Aroma is nice but this is way too salty. At the end of the glass this starts to feel sour and lactic too. Confusing; I like the coffee notes here, but the salt and sourness ruin the show.

"8.5%. Wouldn’t be able to discern brown sugar if not noted. Loads of coffee in the aroma and flavor., which is quite bitter following on the heels of a very smooth body. Very nice, not quite elite.
