330ml bottle. Purchased this beer when I found out what it was. Considering what it is this beer is fantastic! Intense stout with a considerable coffee backbone.

EdKing (2358) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2016
Bottle from Kris Wines. Had this a couple of years. Opens with very little carboantion. Pours opaque very very dark brown to black, no head. Nose is like cold black coffee, dusty, coffee grains, cocoa dust, slight metallic, sweet, dark chocolate. Taste is black coffee, dark chocolate, coffee grains, brown sugar, roasted malt. Mouthfeel has almost no carbonation.

Oakes (15358) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2016
Bottle from Denman Liquor. Dark brown. BIg head, probably too much. The aroma is a bit odd, lots of coffee, but a fair bit of fruitiness. Medium body, some molassesy sweetness but simple dark sugars. Lots of coffee, though it doesn’t distinguish itself much.

Svesse (7727) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 10, 2016
(Bottle) Dark brown colour, almost black, with frothy beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of coffee, caramel, cacao, dark rye bread and a touch of liquorice. Malty, roasted taste with lots of fresh coffee, liquorice, dark chocolate, black rye bread, roasted malt and a generous coffee bitterness in the finish. Full body, with just a touch of sweetness. Fresh an tasty with a generous coffee character (more so in the mouth than in the nose) and alcohol well hidden. Very nice.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2016
330ml bottle. Deep black in colour with a very large and long lasting tan head, excellent lacing. The aroma is of espresso, dark chocolate, deep roast, burnt. The flavour is of espresso and cream, dark chocolate, rasted malts, some sugary sweetness. Roasty mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, roasty and warming. This is amazing stuff. The alcohol is very well hidden, so roasty and toasty. Very good.

Cerbier (666) - - DEC 2, 2015
0,33l Flasche. Dunkelbraunes fast schwarzes Bier, etwas beiger Schaum. Riecht nach Röstmalzen und Kaffee, schmeckt intensiv nach Kaffee und Bitterschokolade. Trotzdem kommt noch der typische eines Stout durch. In der Textur ölig voluminös.
