It sits innocuously enough in the glass: black with a faintish prickly head that sank into a gibbous moon of film on top of the beer. There is a persistent tingle of carbonation visible, which I don’t ordinarily see in other imperial stouts. This could bode well, or I may be reaching for the bottl of water and some aspirin when I wake up. Jet black colour with hints of coffee and before the glass hits my nose I pick up definite Bordeaux aromas of rich Merlot based wines. A shade closer reveals coffee and rich plum pudding. There is some spice there too: nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice. The flavour is strong. The coffee grounds from the bottom of the pot, burnt toast, glace fruits, coffee leftovers and other mayhem. The mouthfeel reveals prickly carbonation that serves to exacerbate the bitterness. This is a bit of a brute and no mistake. Dries on the palate, but stays stomping with heavy boots on the finish. You know you’ve been assaulted by this beer. Whether or not you mind is another thing altogether.

Dark, minimal head. Aroma mostly soy sauce, choclate and coffee in the back ground. Very sweet and no bitterness (where is this 86 IBU?). Despite, creamy, smooth texture and medium-full body combined together are amazing and making Mout & Mocca highly drinkable. It’s suprisingly very refreshing like for RIS. A little bit wasted potential but still good

varanid99 (1006) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 26, 2016
Black pour with barely any tan head. Coffee, cocoa, roasty aromas. Similar flavours - dark chocolate, coffee, roasty flavour, a bit of booze, and nice latte finish. Pretty nice - had been sitting on this for a while so a good one for #1000.

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.
