Bottle. Pours inky black with a two finger head mocha head. Aroma of this is simple, coffee, chocolate, dark fruits, roasted burnt malt with some faint vanilla. Taste is coffee, bitter chocolate, dark fruit, and burnt malts. Very balanced, good carbonation, awesome stout.

Snifter pour. Pours a deep brown with a thin dark beige head that quickly dissipates. Distinct coffee and malt aroma. Taste is similar. Sort of bitter/dry finish. Booze is hidden very well for being 9.5%. Great beer

Tap at The Jeffrey surprised I hadn’t rated this before. Pours jet black with creamy head. Nose of rich coffee ice cream. Tastes of lots and lots of coffee, some roasted malt, vanilla, milk chocolate, and some herbs. Very rich and smooth mouthfeel. Sweet finish but nothing cloying about this.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2013 Biere d’un noir profond avec un col brun pas trop épais. A l’olfaction malt grillé et café. Biere peu complexe mais que j’ai beaucoup apprécié. Cependant je me suis tanné rapidement. En bouche gout intense de café, faible amertume mais la tofféfaction du café en apporte une certaine. Excellente bière, l’une des meilleures dans sa catégorie.

When I wake up late enough that I think starting my day with a beer would be a great idea, I drink one of these. Best iced coffee around.

Black pour with a tan head. Aroma is big coffee and roasted malts, first sip is like espresso. As it warms, the roasty character comes out more. Some sweetness on the finish. Abv is well hidden too. A slow sipper for sure. Very respectable brew.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Drank on tap at wholefoods. A: velvety chocolate aroma, burnt toast, banana, hints of pepper and coffe. A: dark black opaque. Tan head with good retention. Thick coat if lacing. T: bittersweet chocolate, toast, banana, slight mineral note, slight cream note, slight plum. Lingering coffe finish. P: surprisingly light in body for such a big beer. Lots of flavor which fades off you tounge nicely with a lasting bitter chocolate flavor. O: really good. Big stout that’s been dried out with beligum yeast. Lots of flavors but still easy to drink. Coffe is subtle but still there

Bottle. Jet black pour with a thin layer of cappuccino foam. Loads of dark roast coffee, cocoa powder and roasted barley malt in the aroma. The taste is heavy on the coffee, chocolate and caramel at the start followed by notes of vanilla bean, roasted malt and espresso. The body is thick and creamy for the most part with moderate carbonation and a bitter, charred finish. This is one seriously tasty coffee bomb.

Thanks to tectactoe. Really good coffee stout. With one of the best coffee flavors I’ve had in a beer. Real quality.
