SBWF 2013. Black beer with a nice beige head. Nice coffee aroma, quite roasted, cocoa, figs, raisins, grapes, some soot, some caramel. Fresh coffee flavor, roasted, licorice, cocoa powder, figs, raisins, salty notes, some oranges. Nice body, nice coffee and raisin finish.

Lukaduke (2724) - Gray, Maine, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Poured a rich burnt umber color with a big gaseous khaki foam. The nose was of charred coffee, green pepper and windex. The flavor was a bit more pleasant but that still disjointed and plain old wrong. Some coffee notes exist but the off notes are so apparent and reference the nose enough to render it undrinkable.

Ferris (8104) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 2, 2013
Bottle - Vintage 2012 - Chocolate, coffee and dark fruit. Jet black with a rich brown head. Coffee, bitter chocolate, an interesting sweetness with a finish of roasted coffee bean. Although I don’t get full flavors of fig and coconut, this is a very robust, complex and nice beer to share. The coffee is very pronounced but not harshly. Nice.

Bottle shared with Yanick. Pours dark brown with tan head. Nose and taste of toasted coconut, flaked oats, coffee beans, cocoa and touch of unsweetened dark fruit. A touch vegetal at times. Mouth feel is chocolate grain. Lighter medium body.

patricks110 (2124) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 20, 2013
A great brew with an awesome blend of fresh fruitiness and roasted robust coffee. Rich and silky smooth with tons of oatmeal and a bit of toasted coconut. Sweet and rich dessert like. A bit light in the body but warm and awesome.

Westchesterco (1439) - mclean, Virginia, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Poured from a bottle this beer is dark brown with an ecru head. The aroma of fig and chocolate stands out. It tastes of coffee chocolate and fig. It is bitter and resonates on the palate.

maekchu (2773) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 9, 2013
Bomber. Thanks to Wiombata. Dark roast coffee, with considerable chocolate sweetness in the nose. Very dark brown with translucent edges. Slightly harsh coffee initial, with a note of coconut / mid brings out the roast malt / finish is all sweet chocolate and light coffee. Medium-thin body (for a stout). I don’t get the figs, except perhaps as a added bit of sweetness. The coffee is not overboiled. Rich stuff.

KyotoLefty (7876) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 30, 2013
Bottled. Nose of coconut, coffee, fig, chocolate. Sweet, complex nose. Big coffee. Black with lace. Light body, with flavors of coffee, fruits, coconuts, cream, chocolate. It is hard to place the figs exactly. A bit think but good flavor, huge coffee—to much more me personally but well done. Dry finish.
