BBB63 (6019) - 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.

Klimaet (131) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle at Unibaren, Århus. Pours black with some brown hues. Thin brown head. Aromas of some roasted coffee, booze, bittersweet coffee, slight caramel malt and some oats-like notes. Taste is pretty sweet, roasted coffee notes, and some dry bittersweet chocolate.

Zaakistan (11) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 18, 2014
Poured from a bottle. Retained light brown head. Incredible coffee and malty aroma, though I could almost taste the alcohol before I sipped. Taste replicated the aroma almost perfectly. Strong alcohol aftertaste. Delicious, though not for the faint of liver. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bahumat (106) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 27, 2014
Aroma: 7/10. Molasses, caramel, toffee, honey. A very sweet aroma, not especially complex, but very pleasant. Appearance: 5/5. Pours black-brown with a surprisingly thick and lively brown head that fades to tan and lasts for minutes and multiple sips. Taste: 8/10. Molasses, coffee, and then chocolate, all lingering and lasting with some nice licorice and toffee notes. Whatís especially notable is the way the flavors resolve sequentially; *first* coffee, *then* coffee layers on, *then* chocolate layers on overtop. And this is on each sip! Strong alcohol flavor in this one. I canít put this one down; just absolutely great structure and layering. The finish is more bitter than Iíd like with that same finish of grapefruit juice, and itís strong enough to dock 2 off the 10 I might otherwise give it. Palate: 4/5. Smooth on the tongue, but surprisingly lively in carbonation for a coffee stout. A little acidic and astringent, in a good way; surprisingly crisp for any sort of stout! Overall: 17/20. I feel like Iím under-representing this one by a few points because of a lack of a strong aroma, but the taste more than makes up for this. Of particular special note is that *sequential* flavor layering, itís quite a trick to make three flavors arrive in succession instead of all together. Yet another world-class stout by De Molen.

Beese (1667) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle from Bacchanalia. Sadly, I think the bottle was slightly defective; when I opened it, the beer was almost to the top and when poured, it had very little carbonation. Was a very ark brown, with a marbled tan head and some lacing. Aroma was musky, with some dark rum and aniseed. Dark malt flavours, with some molasses and liquorice. Finish was honeycomb, coffee and cocoa nibs.

thirdeye11 (5537) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 11, 2014
(33cl bottle) near black, not much head, fades like soda. Nose of bacon and smoke, older coffee, peanut shells, and chocolate syrup. Taste of milk chocolate, bits of cacao nibs, coffee, umami, soy sauce, smoky and salty. Unique beer, under carbonated and bacony linger.

Procent (72) - POLAND - JUL 8, 2014
W aromacie bardzo silna wyczuwalna kawa mielona, poza tym nuty czekoladowe, trochę karmelu i wanilii. Piana znikoma, barwa piwa to ciemny brąz wchodząca w czerń, nieprzejrzyste. W smaku także bardzo silna kawa mielona, a w tle także czekolada i wanilia. Piwo bardzo aksamitne, kremowe, odczucie w ustach pełne, wysycenie niskie, goryczka wysoka od kawy, alkoholu praktycznie nie czuć. Bardzo ciekawe piwo, niestety goryczka i smak kawy słabo kontrowany przez aksamitne tło, a szkoda, bo to "tło" wydaje się doskonałe. Aczkolwiek dla fanůw kawy - idealne.

MrFecesious (944) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2014
18/04/12 11.2oz bottle. Pours a deep brown with thin ruby edges and a massive rocky tan cap. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, earth, vanilla, cherry and plum. Taste is sweet and slightly bitter. Mouthfeel is slightly creamy but finishes finish. Abv is masked ridiculously well.
