Really smooth coffee stout. A great example of the style. It’s nutty, creamy, and has a nice rich coffee flavor. Packs a punch, though it’s not boozy at all. Very pleasant.

zacgillbanks (3584) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. An inky black beer that pours with no sort of head. It has an unusual strong chilli flavour (but with not heat or spice at all), chocolate and red fruity flavours, liquorice and tart red fruit on the finish.

ABT_S54 (305) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2014
33cl bottle poured into a snifter. Pours black with quite a bit of light coming through which is uncommon for the style and its ABV. Aroma is coffee and little else. Too extreme it smells dirty and earthy to me. Taste is more of the same with no balance of flavours just strong earthy coffee. Nothing like an imperial stout to me and not one I shall try again.

Aromas and flavors of cocoa, coffee, and toast. Body was a bit too light. Opaque black. Very very good beer.

Boomkweket (33) - Boskoop, NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2014
HR73 / ,17-10-14 / Fles. Bij inschenken bijna zwart en met een kraag als guinness, deze verdwijnt echter snel(non carbonated). Prachtig aroma met koffie extracten. Mocca, caramel zij meer dan aanwezig. In de smaak eerst wat vreemd dan mocca, koffiebitter en een lange afdronk. Heerlijk, maar ietwat vreemd bier

Incredibly much coffee scent. Truly a heavy coffee flavor too. Heavy bitterness that fills the mouth forever. A very heavy beer. But I really liked it. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
