Pours with a coffee black body and a beige head of decent size. Moderate lacing. Smells like dark chocolate and an aggressive amount of good coffee. Some blackberries and raspberries are also present in the aroma. Itís a strong coffee aroma but quite rich, and it doesnít completely overpower the roasted malt. The malt flavor is on the sweet side but itís almost entirely overwhelmed by bitter coffee. Iím guessing that this beer was made with excellent coffee, but the flavor has grown somewhat stale, bitter and over-roasted. Finish is mildly unpleasant with coffee bitterness. The feel is thin and watery. The flavor might have worked well with a thicker, fuller mouthfeel, but thin and coffee bitter isnít doing it for me.

nearbeer (3849) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 1, 2010
300 ml. Notched 2010, Lot A. Black with a lasting ring of bubbles. Aroma is cookie with espresso and cream. The flavor is a similar blend but less sweet, with the espresso ruling. Mixed berry flavors also add a nice note. Medium-heavy body is smooth, slick and well-balanced by the dark roasts. Nicely disguised 10%, and a great dessert.

Thanks Turd. Pours a dark black with copper edges and a one finger creamy mocha tan head. Nose is leathery and tannic, sour notes, day old coffee, roast. Flavor is roasty with mild chocolate and day old coffee, acrid bitterness and astringency. Palate is extremely astringent.

konstifik (573) - SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2010
On tap at Arendsnest, Amsterdam. Black as sin with a small, dense cappuchino colored head, leaving lots of lacing. Roasted malts and espresso coffee dominates the aroma. Some fruitiness and chocolate hides in there as well though. Surprisingly low bitterness for a beer with such strong coffee flavor. Long aftertaste of espresso. Medium body, which is surprisingly for a 10 % ABV espresso stout. It is nice though that the coffee flavors donít get too overpowering.

thebeertourist (4904) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2010
Bottle from De Bierkoning. Black with a mousse-like tan head. Intense espresso aroma, followed by sweetish, roasted coffee flavours with hints of milky sweetness. Nice.

jtclockwork (8965) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 17, 2010
Bottle at Pilsner Peteís RBSG courtesy of Brian. Dark brownish black pour. Nose is very nice espresso beans, chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is very similar to the nose. The beans really shine. Body is a little thinner than I would have expected with the abv, but this is a terrific beer.
