Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs; thanks jmborggren). Looks good; an opaque dull black with tan head that steadily dissipates into thin lacing. Smells of dark malt, chocolate, and mild coffee and roast. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel that’s pleasantly full-bodied. Good beer.

Fin (7364) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2014
Bottle from ’Jacks’, Westholme Stores, Goring on Thames, had this on holiday at Camping La Paz, Nr Llanes, Asturian coast, Spain, Tuesday 17th June 2014 Pours black with beige sparkly bubbled head, coffee on nose. In mouth coffee dominates, it is quite thick and a little sweet, alcohol apparent and there are typical roasted flavours. Its fine, quite nice even, but not totally my thing in fact it will be a tricky one to finish on my own. A7 A4 T6 P3 Ov13 3.3

Beautiful black beer with minimal aroma and light head. Slight smoky flavor but not too much with a subtle coffee flavor. More light a cross between an imperial stout and a coffee stout.

mgajdaczewa (483) - Katowice, POLAND - MAY 26, 2014
Aromat likieru kawowego z nutami czekolady i, niestety, ciut nadmierną alkoholowością, mimo to pełny i przyjemny. W smaku pełne, wyraźnie kawowe z nutami mlecznej czekolady, lekka śliwka i rodzynki. Finisz z delikatną chmielową nutą z wyrazistą czekoladą gorzką. Fajny likierek.

Tselloufc88 (106) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle from Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Black appearance with a beige head. Aroma is of a not too strong coffee. Taste is much stronger! Hints of chocolate and vanilla sweetness. You certainly can taste the percentage in this one. One to be enjoyed at room temperature.

Couleur noire. Super parfum de café et cacao, un peu grillés. Peu de pétillance, huileuse. Gout de café, un peu sucré. Fin courte , mais super bonne bière!
