Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours dark brown with a few tan bubbles and a huge treacle and chocolate aroma. There is a full-bodied dark molasses flavor with a little smoke amd a dry slightly bitter finish. Plenty of coffee.

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.

In mouth, a nice sweet fruity chocolate malt with loads of coffee grind, light vanilla, dark fruits, molasses, alcohol warmth, very nice and complex. On tap at Eulogy.

Trolleo (1236) - 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

butelka, warka z 13/01/16 (BB 13/01/21) - znow majaca wiecej, bo 11.4%. B ciemny braz piwa, rachityczna piana szybko pozostajaca obraczka. Aromat intensywny, glownie kawa i palonosc, zreszta sama kawa tez o takim palonym do prawie czerni ziaren charakterze. Do tego dochodzi alko - wcale nie takie sympatyczne, acz z nutka ciemnych owocow delikatna. Nieco wanilii. kapinka pralin. W ustach pierwszy lyk to reakcja "o dzizas, jakie alkoholowe" - no hej, ja to na sniadanie pije, sadysci holenderscy!. Na szczescie usto szybko sie przyzwyczaja i caloksztalt w ustach sie szybko wyrownuje do podobnej rownowagi jak w aromacie. Niemniej alko nadal mocno obecne, nieco palace przelyk wrecz. Co by nie powiedziec Pracownia Piwa z tymi swoimi kawowymi wersjami 6th joseph street z kawa zrobila duzo lepsiejsza robote w temacie jak sobie zestawic. W ustach tez pojawia sie czekolada ktorej w aromacie mam wrazenie nie bylo. taka gorzka. W ogole piwo jest nieco slodkawe o dziwo, w sumie cholera wie, czemu, nie pasuje to do aromatu. Wysycenie symboliczne, goryczka... cholera wie, bo alkohol ja nadpisuje. Konsystencja nieco oleista, ale i tak ciezko powiedziec, ze ma duzo ciala. Bardzo dlugie posmaki (i znow - z alko). Sumarycznie to bdb piwo byloby, zeby nie alko... tak, to tylko fajne

This is an 11.2 oz bottle with 11.6% ABV, so I’m not sure what year it is from. Smells like nice dark roast coffee with a hint of red wine, oak and plum. Slightly boozy scent. Shiny black color with the faintest trace of tan foam. The taste is very roasty, with heavy oak and some chocolate in the background. Some booze and hop/coffee bitterness in the aftertaste. A little rough, but all the elements of a great coffee stout are there. The beer pours out on the thin side, but the palate holds up pretty well when you drink it. I’m a big de Molen fan so I may be biased, but I thought this was pretty good.
