Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 4, 2010
Tap at Max’s. Pours a very nice deep dark near pitch black with a nice fluffy dark tan head. Aroma is nicely roasted malts, light burnt hints, good full fresh chocolate malt light coffee, some anise and tobacco- clean. Flavor is lightly fruity upfront, then good full roasted barley, chocolate malt, and medium sweetness, some drying earth and leather, light hops, and very clean and not too sweet in the finish. Very well made.

Roasty, toasty, big and boasty! Hope Emelisse is able to get more of this over the pond soon. This is a wonderful Imperial coffee stout which hides its alcohol extremely well. Kudos to 12% for bringing this nugget into the US Market.

Sammy (8406) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2010
RIS that hits the spot. Above average mouthfeel, no head but black body. Understated carbonation, a tad above average mouthfeel overall. Lumps of sediment, more noticeable towards the end, in the glass. Boozy and roasty aroma. Nothing too complex.

TheEpeeist (3292) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2009
50 cl bottle. Dark brown with some tan froth. Nose is rich chocolate, hay, molasses and dark roast. Medium body with mild buzzy carb. Taste is unsweetened chocolate, espresso and bittersweet citrus peel. Dry cocoa finish. Balanced, subdued, roasty; quality stuff.

Vaiz (3284) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2009
Almost black and thick liquid with a brownish thick head. Smells of fresh ground roasted coffee, very appealing. Tastes like coffee and has a characteristic woody finish. Lingering aftertaste of chocolate. Great beer.

Tap @ 1st BBF, De Molen.
Pours completely black with a big, frothy, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, caramel, lightly smokey, coffee and well roasted. Low carbonation, great dry and oily mouthfeel. Sweet chocolate flavour, lightly roasted, a touch of liqourice. Really weel composed.
