Bottle at home. Pours an opaque black with a diminishing off-white head. smells of roasted malts and alcohol. Dry with aromas of roasted malts and coffee. Hints of burned toast and dried fruits. Also some hints of alcohol. Medium to full bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Soft, smooth carbonation. Dry finish with lots of coffee.

Dark roasted barley malt with lesser coffee notes, not strong. Black, medium tan head, some glass adherence. Medium body, not thick at all. Chocolate and fig initially, coffee at midpalate and beyond with a bitter char finish. Alcohol is impercptible and at 10% that makes for a dangerous beer. Good balance with distinct transitions. I don’t get a sense of espresso per se, and it definitely doesn’t drink like an imperial. It has a pervasive sweet undercurrent that isn’t unpleasant, which leads me to believe this a coffee sweet stout. It’s a delicious beer, but I would have never guessed it is an espresso impy. Deceptive but good.

Nose: Weak, milky Taste: Weak taste of roasted coffee beans. Nice but lacks a bit of sting to it.

Black with a thin tan head. Lovely coffee and dark choc flvours. Palate is a bit thin for the abv so would be nice if this was filled out a bit....

Pours a black color with a tan head. Aroma is mostly roasted malts with some coffee, chocolate, and some caramel. Flavor is actually kind of light at first with all that was on the aroma. The finish was pretty strong with the bitter, roasted malts, and alcohol warming.

mile (3572) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 1, 2011
Bottle. Very dark brown –almost black, small and fully diminishing light brown head. Moderate, roasted malty and sweetish aroma, chocolate and some coffee. Body is moderate to heavy, roasted (burned) malty flavor with light sweetness and coffee, light hoppyness and alcohol . Finish is average malty and dryish, lots burned malt and coffee, some alcohol. Imperial stout with coffee – as puritanist I do not get why you have to put coffee into IS.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a medium brown color with a tan head. The aroma is tart cherries with some roasted malt and coffee. The coffee is not as prevalent as I expected it to be, but it is definitely present. The flavor is much heavier on the coffee. I also get some roasted malt and chocolate as well as some grassy hop notes and some Belgian yeast character. The alcohol is very well hidden. I had no idea the beer was 10 percent ABV. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very interesting to see a coffee stout brewed with a Belgian twist.

Bottle. Pours a black body with a tan head and a light tan lacing. Aromatically a coffee lovers wet dream. Roast y with espresso, coffee grinds fresh out the freezer, and whole coffee bean goodness. Roast y and soft with a light chocolate and caramel sweetness. Drying with a note of licorice. Good stuff.
