3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Dark black pour. Obviously a strong coffee aroma; chocolate as well. Rich, dark coffee flavor, roasted malt and chocolate. Full body. Nice beer, but for me the coffee flavor overpowered everything else and limited the complexity of the beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap. Pours pitch black with huge creamy mocca brown head. Aroma is big on coffe, some wood, dark chocolate, sugary caramel. Slight roast in the background an I do catch some subtle hop. Taste is pure coffee at first. Behind there is some sweet milk chocolate too. Roasty medium bitter dry finish. Smooth carbonation. Really drinkable! Maybe best coffee I have had.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark colour with some almost brownish head and good retention. Aroma is coffee with hints of alcohol and caramel. Taste is sweeter with a background of bitterness. Aftertaste is also sweeter and dry with hints of bitterness. Generally a stronger and more complex beer, for fans of sweeter, stronger stouts.

Black with tan head. Dark chocolate and coffee malt aroma. Medium bitterness and a bitter finish. The malt really balance it out. The coffee taste is extremely apparent. I got this as a recommendation and he wasn’t lying, very good. Tastes like drinking a cup of coffee.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
2005 bottle (thanks Secret Santa!!!) shared with puzzl. Black body with nice dark tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, and black cherries. Flavor starts out with heavy bitter espresso that is balanced nicely by some sweet cherries and chocolate. Finish is a little bit sticky, but overall a delicious coffee stout.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.5 oz bottle. Winter Storm Blast 2008, being snowbound and stuck at home leads me to a cellar stash break in to see what is calling my name.
Nicely complex brew pours out and leaves large small bubble head. Thick with a strong coffee flavor and sticky chocolate and dark fruit. Nice alcohol that blends so nicely into the beer leaving a warmth and resonance in your mouth.
If you like coffee, no make that GOOD coffee, this is a beer for you.
