375 capped from Bine & Vine. Pours dark brown with a slight beige head. Coffee aroma. Med + body. Flavor has a lot of coffee and dark/burnt malt. Not dry, but certainly bitter. It’s like espresso. Some chocolate after a bit. Really good stuff.

On draft at When Pigs Fly, Kittery, ME. There’s enough coffee aroma and flavor in this to make it taste like a boozy latte. I’ve had more than my fair share of high ABV stouts with coffee, and this still stands out. Expertly made, really tasty, and will probably keep you awake an extra couple of hours.

Trolleo (1391) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 12, 2016
Completely dark body, medium sized tan head drops to minimal. Great aroma. Extreme coffee, chili, spices, caramel. Lots of coffee in taste plus some alcohol. Flat carbonation. Medium to full body, creamy. Not perfectly balanced, coffee is jumping little bit off the rest, but still great. //thanks to veceo for sharing

2016 bottle. Dark brown with a tan head. You almost get something different with each taste and it definitely develops on your tongue. Dark fruits, molasses, some ash, little black pepper, bourbon, all on a little roasted malt. Slightly dirty taste with a hint of sourness, sorta herbal and dank. On the thin side but has a little creaminess and the taste is complex enough that it makes it seem fuller. Not your typical stout, very interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
