Bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours dark brown to black in color with a medium sized fine beige head. The aroma had big roasted coffee and dark chocolate with lighter notes of caramel, tobacco and ash. The flavor had strong coffee, dark chocolate, tobacco, ash,with some alcohol coming through. Body was thin for the big flavors.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Draft @ Sergio’s. Pours black with a tiny tan head. Aroma of rich coffee, chocolate, vanilla and a light earthy scent. Flavor is more rich chocolate and coffee, some fruity esters, roasty bitterness and light alcohol. Full body with as silky smooth mouth feel. Wow, this is a really great beer, tons of coffee and chocolate balanced out with a nice roasty edge.

Draft @ brewpub. Jet black colored beer with a beige head. Roasty aroma with touches of caramel, coffee and booze. Soft, sweet flavor with coffee influences and a boozy backbone. Silk smooth mouthfeel. Nice.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - NOV 12, 2012
Bottle. An almost pitch black beer, with a large, frothy, mostly lasting, beige head. The aroma is moderately malty (very strong coffee, roasted grain, caramel), with notes of hot pepper, alcohol, hint of vegetables. The flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety/creamy texture, soft/lively carbonation, very long finish with moderate bitterness, moderately alcoholic. Apart a slight vegetable impression in the nose, this is a fine beer, nicely coffeish and peppery and with a pleasant mouthfeel and finish. A good and warming winter beer.

Bottle at konttori, tampere. Bottled september 2011. Black color with medium light brown head. Strong aroma of coffee and some spices? Nice smooth taste of coffee, roasted, medium bodied, taste could be longer. But smooth and nice stout.

Kingi (496) - - NOV 10, 2012
Aroma is coffee and something very strong which I don’t have the word for. Black beer, small long lasting head. Taste is classic licorice chocolate and a hint of spicyness which lingers on the tongue. Maybe a bit of alcohol pushing through.

BBB63 (6221) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Bottle and served in my Iechyd Da snifter: Pours a deep brown with an initial big tan head but that fades quickly and left minimal lacework upon the glassware. The aroma smacks of coffee, roast, toast, chocolate, walnuts, char, and tobacco malt notes along with a moderate helping of grassy and herbal hops. The taste follows suit with dominate coffee overtones supported by sweet and roasted malts. Some noble hop and alpha hop character along with a dash of cavendish pipe tobacco. The mouth feel is lively and ashy, a bit thin but that is expected with the majority of coffee stouts. Overall a very nice brew but an utter waste of a rare coffee just to make a statement. Any solid single origin coffee would have work just as well, perhaps or likely better.

bytemesis (3699) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Bottle. Pours dark reddish black with a large brown creamy head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is strong espresso, dark roasted malts, tobacco. Flavor about the same, intense coffee, light sweetness and significant bitterness. A bit more watery than expected, and a quite astringent, which detracts from an otherwise nice beer.

deyholla (7157) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Bottle shared with Sarah. Pours near black with a light brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma is full of a strong coffee/espresso with some roasted malts and a bit of dark chocolate. Flavor is intense coffee throughout with just a bit of roasted malt and dark grains.
