4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I saved this bottle for several months to share with my brother for when he came into town. I must say that it lived up to my lofty expectations. Pours very black with an almost reddish looking, dark tan full head. Aroma is robust and impressive. It contains plenty of chocolate to go along with oak, licorice, vanilla, and coffee. The taste is very rich chocolate, and lots of it. Perhaps like chocolate cake, however with some coffee and vanilla mixed in. Despite how much chocolate is in here, somehow this really isn’t sweet. And that might be the best part of all with this one. Bitter, especially at the end. Full bodied, as one would expect, with an oily texture. Subtle, yet noticeable carbonation. Alcohol content hides itself well. This certainly doesn’t feel like its as strong as it is. Altogether, this has just about everything that you could hope for in a big beer. Being tasty, well made in every respect, potent without hitting hard, you will really impress most everyone by pouring one of these.

What an amazing beer. Pours black with a large brownish head. Aroma full of coffee, roasted malts, chocolate an some oak. Flavour wasn’t much different to that but the coffee flavour through this is superb! At this moment this is the best beer I have had.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with a huge tan head. The aroma was a mix of fresh coffee, oak and bourbon. The flavour much the same but the fresh roasted coffee was a huge point. Amazing beer.

Lovely smell of coffee and lots of smoke. Jet black with a nice, but thin brownish head. Tastes of smokey espresso, roasted malts and fruit. Slightly oily texture. Maybe the best coffee stout I have had.
