A good solid coffee stout. Plenty of body but the higher alcohol is not apparent. It's nice and malty and there are good coffe/chocolate balances

355ml bottle, trade with Skinnyviking and shared with Finn. Espresso head slowly diminishing. Black body with a ruby glint. Powerful aroma of coffee and dark chocolate. The flavour profile follows suit with coffee grounds, almond, and black chocolate. Prolonged ending, nicely roasted. Smooth on the swallow. Warming and tasty (session at Finns, Tromsø 16.12.2015).

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE TASTED: November 29, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Samuel Smith tulip pint... OCCASION: Christmas lights--up and operational... APPEARANCE: pitch black body supports a creamy, thick brown head that smears cirrus clouds above its half-finger base... attractive crags form while the head settles... AROMA: deep, alluring peat and coffee bean... what else? some briny notes with roasted malts... slight alcohol wafts in... PALATE: warm, soft, and smooth--much gentler than the 9% ABV would suggest; late action warms and leaves a comfortably lingering aftertaste that cooks... TASTE: as advertised, a powerful shot of coffee bean and roasted malts... the flavor is not overwhelming, but it is demonstrative... reasonable sweetness... OVERALL: as espresso stouts go, solid and rewarding...the ABV instantly numbs and the caffeine stimulates...one of Dominion’s better, right up there with the Oak Barrel stout...

Aroma of chocolate & coffee. Small off white head that disappears. Dominate chocolate flavor with a hint of coffee. Coffee taste seems to take over later in the beer.

Tap @ JB.
Pour pretty black, with a frothy one-finger sized head beige head.
Aroma is pretty darn coffee forward. Plenty of roasted coffee beans, dark bitter chocolate, roasted malts, faint hoppy notes.
Taste is pretty bitter, with faint sweet notes. Medium but slightly watery body, with a mellow carbonation. I quite like this, but it isn’t playong more keys than the coffee stuff

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
pitch dark, small brown to light brown head. aroma of sweet roasted malts, coffe, dark chocolate and perhaps a little bitter caramel. faint coffee and some frutiy notes. flavor is lots of coffee, dark chocoloate, coffee bitterness, mocca, whole coffee beans, chocolate cake, some roasted malts. liquid dessert, hops and malts almost just spice to the really heavy coffee and chocolate. Not very refined, but very brutal instead. You can clearly taste the coffee beans.
