UPDATED: JAN 27, 2015 Black colour with nice brown head that disappear quickly. Nice smoked coffee nose and good coffee taste. A bit disappointed on the flavours, a little bit weak to my taste. Nice bitterness, a very good stout but I had better ones lately ;)

pours black with minimal brown head, earthly coffee aroma with a blend of chocolate and slight licorice. The smell is sweet but the taste is medium bitter and sour. It is a medium body, thin texture and average carbonation. Overall its a complex beer with a lasting aftertaste comparable to a gourmet coffee experience. Anyone with a palate for this kind of thing would find it enjoyable. Thank you Mikkeller.

Pours black with a mocha-brown head which is quite large initially but then recedes to a number of bubbly patches. Aroma roast malts, coffee and slight liquorice. Taste is coffee, roast malts, slightly woody and a hint of vanilla/oat sweetness. Medium to thick mouthfeel.

Bottles pours a dark brown, near black, one finger tan head that fades to a ring. Aromas of coffee, oats, toffee, chocolate and roasted nut. Taste is iced coffee with chocolate bearing down. Nice thick body lets the flavors stick to the palate. Wishing their was a bit more depth to the chocolate but, hey, itís a coffee beer! Nice finish with deep oat, cereal, nuttiness pushing the coffee bitterness back to the middle. Very nice beer!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
black, cloudy, rocky head, brown foamPowerful aroma with a much more intense punch from the coffee. Iím not getting as much roasted aroma on this beer, but it might be that the coffee is overpowering some of the other less intense aromas.
As with the aroma the coffee is very intense and numbs the other flavors. Iím picking up hints of chocolate, roasted malts and vanilla. There is also a noticeable grassy hoppy flavor present. Even if the coffee flavor is quite intense it does not ruin the beer at all. It works really well!
The carbonation level is higher which makes the mouth feel of the beer less smooth. Personally I would prefer lesser carbonation.
Very long finish and a lot more bitter than the one brewed at NÝgne ō. There is a slight hint of alcohol present as well.

Blackie Lawless color with a fine beige head. Nice lacing. Coffee, chocolate and roasted aroma. Medium to full body. Fine balance between sweetness and bitterness. Soft carbonation. Lots of coffee in the flavor. Also chocolate and roasted. More imperial stout than some other. Nice tasty buddy.

Bottle @ home. Pours dark brown, nearly reddish black, foamy chocolate brown head. Aromas of coffee, dark chocolate, red berries, leather, roast. Itís medium sweet and not very bitter until the finish, when roasted coffee beans linger a bit with some chocolate tempering it. Nice full body and warming.
