BBB63 (6507) - 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.

Cerbier (589) - - 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.

visionthing (4058) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 13, 2015
33cl bottle (bottled 24/01/13 and probably bought at Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo). Pours Very dark brown with almost no head at all. Did open it when it was still a bit to cold and then the aroma was surprisingly modest. As it gains temperature it opens up and the strong coffee aroma gets quite obvious. Nice roasty aroma with lot of coffee, some cocoa, earthy notes, dark fruits and hints of licorice, vanilla and wood. Medium sweet, surprisingly easy to drink and feels much lighter than expected. Alcohol is well integrated. Flavourful and certainly nice, but feels a bit thin somehow.

kurczako (140) - POLAND - OCT 17, 2015
Piwo dwa lata po terminie, zestarzało się nieziemsko. Bardzo intensywny aromat, kawa, czekoladowość, paloność, suszone owoce. W smaku niezwykle gęste, oblepia kubki smakowe. Szlachetny alkohol rozgrzewa. Piwo rozpływa się w ustach. Jeśli gdziekolwiek natraficie, polecam, jedno z najlepszych piw w życiu!

wozap (485) - Węgorzewo, POLAND - SEP 29, 2015
Wijsbier & De Molen. 13.09.2013-13.09.2015 Czarne, piana drobna brązowa, niewysoka, trwała. Lepkie, powoli spływające po sciankach szkła. Aromat palonej kawy w potęznej dawce. W smaku gorzka gęsta kawa, jest tez kwaskowość wynikająca z tej intensywnosci. Niskie nasycenie.

neongolden (1010) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2015
(330ml 24/01/2013 bottle @ PiBar, Lausanne, Aug 11 2015) Pours black with a fairly small whitish head fading to a ring without lace. Aroma is pungent roasted coffee beans, very earthy, ashy, liquorice, sweet chocolate and dark malt core restrained but there in support of the big roast bitterness. On the palate, a big roasty coffee note, earth, soy, liquorice, bitter chocolate, sweet dark malt is restrained and only shows up when warm. Finish has lots of coffee roast, burnt and ashy with some earth, just a hint of alcohol heat. Medium full but slick with fairly soft carbonation. Coffee really stands out here, malt gives it proper support, a little less rich and more harshly roasted than Brunch Weasel, De Molen style. Probably good they stopped making it, but glad I got to try it.
