On tap at The Only Cafe. Hands down the best coffee stout I’ve tried. I can’t imagine anything more rich and delicious. Tonnes of coffee, chocolate on the nose and mouth. Bitter chocolate finish. Thick, creamy mouth feel. A joy to sip. Definitely lives up to my expectations.

Delicious imperial. First time with this beer for many moons. Black as night. Coffee ground and roasted malt aroma. Thick on the mouth. Strong roasted coffee taste with hints of molasses,
Caramel, chocolate, and a touch of nut.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer poured as black as the night and formed a huge dirty tan foamy head coated the glass with lace as it subsided. A good deal of carbonation is present. The aroma really smacks you over the head with expresso coffee, malt and a slight peanut odor. The flavor was of malt, coffee and chocolate. The body was creamy, but a bit on the thin side for the style. The warming aspect of the alcohol level is present in the slightly burnt coffee finish. A great beer, but at the current pricing, I would be hard pressed to have this on more than just a rare occasion.

12oz bottle poured into stout snifter. This beer is black with highlights of cola at the edges. A gentle pour yielded a thin head that receded to a ring. Dots of lace are left behind as the beer is consumed. Aroma is of roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate. Taste is bitter espresso, dark cherries, some vanilla, unsweetened chocolate, and a smoky/roasty malts. On the low end of full body, creamy and thick texture, soft carbonation, and a long bitter finish.

2013 bottle to a tulip glass. Pours black with a fringe of ruby and a tan-cinnamon colored head. Aroma is milk chocolate and cookie dough with the faint tinge of coffee beans. Taste is milk chocolate and a little cookie dough sweetness up front. Builds into a pleasant coffee bitterness with some of the sweetness remaining. The alcohol comes through slightly at the end and creates a little astringency. Medium mouthfeel, wish it was a little fuller. Very good, easy drinking imp stout.

Couleur très opaque noire et avec presque pas de mousse. Odeur de café, dr céréales roties. En bouche, c est riche, café, choco avec une houblonage herbeux. Elle a bc de corps. Très intense, bon mais elle peu vite devenir écoeurante...

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap. Poured a deep black with a thin head that dissipated quite quickly. This may have been a result of the server not getting it to me. The smell is malt and coffee but is not overpowering. The taste was only slightly of coffee and a little watery. Interesting, but not something I’m likely to order again.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pitch black with a finger of dark khaki head. Smells sweet malt, coffee, earthy roastedness, some chocolate. Taste is tons of roasted coffee, dark chocolate, roasted hop bitter, some caramel sweetness, earthy mustiness a tad. Alcohol isn't too apparent mouthfeel is relatively slick and not very coating. A very well done coffee stout.

Bottle from Brewdog, Leeds. Almost black. Thin, broken, but lasting, tan coloured head. Fresh ground coffee. Vanilla. A little grassiness. Taste is heavily sugared espresso. Thick, hot chocolate, gloopy palate. Long, dry, bitter finish. A punch in the face from someone wearing a 12" thick, foam, boxing glove.
