maekchu (2905) - 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 (8125) - 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.

This is a tasty, but very roasted flavor. I don't taste the fig flavor, but I still like it overall.

750 bottle from PUB’N. Pours hazy dark blackish with minimal tan head. Nose is charred roasty dark malt coffee. Tastes of charred black malts not much fig or coconut, but a heavy coffee flavor, and finishing notes of blackberry.

CapFlu (4910) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2013
(750ml bottle) Purchased at Hillside Liquors for a ridiculous $27 or something. Pours a thin, beige head that dissipates while the black body is rich in aroma and depth. Great gritty burnt coffee and spicy, slight Balsamic. Very interesting.

beer-yum (989) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 25, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2014 Would be Epic’s second beat black beer (after their ’one off’ Repocalypse BIIPA). Inviting aroma with a taste that starts smooth, turns tart, but has a subtle coffee finish.

SlovakSniper (4132) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2013
Une bouteille de 75 cl. Version 2012. Une robe presque noire qui fabrique un petit col mousseux plutôt foncé. Au nez, des parfums mélangés de chocolat, de petits fruits charnus et de café. L’alcool est par moment rude. Je ne perçois aucune trace de noix de coco. Au goût, les choses ne font que s’améliorer. Le café et le chocolat s’affirment de belle façon. Les fruits noirs se mélangent pour former une mélasse goûteuse. L’alcool me semble être mieux camouflé. Je ne vois toujours pas la noix de coco: c’est dommage. En bouche, le corps du liquide est moyen-mince. Les bulles sont modérées et la texture est presque huileuse. La finale se fait sur des notes peu amères de chocolat et de mélasse.

Belle grosse bouteille partagée par slovaksniper. Merci. Un liquide brun foncé qui ne mousse presque pas. Un nez marqué par l’alcool volatile, et ensuite une panoplie de trucs bruns et noirs comme, des figues, des dattes, du café, de la cendre, des raisins secs. En bouche le café prend beaucoup de place, la texture est agréable. La finale sur la poussière est longue. Loin d’être raté mais aussi loin d’être ma préférée.

Bottle. Black with a thin fizzy tan head. Sweet caramel, earthy chocolate, and vegetal coffee grounds aroma and taste with light coconut notes and roasted grains, but I’m not getting the fig flavors out of it. Oily medium bodied palate.
