JoeM500 (1906) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - APR 22, 2012
On tap at Bone Dry (Highland,IN) . Cappuccino nose with hints of chalky dry cocoa powder and, as it warms, coffee bean and grassy hops. The mouthfeel is chewy, rich, thick, amazing. Alcohol is completely masked by huge chocolate malts and roasted coffee notes. Not overly sweet but desert-like as it warms. Dry finish leaves mouth coated with an oily, dark roasted coffee aftertaste. Superb.

JohnnyJ (4539) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 21, 2012
Draft. Very dark brown pour, small tan head. Chocolate, heavy dark sugars, coffee, fruit, and roast. Fairly heavy mouthfeel. A decent coffee stout, but not the best.

AshtonMcCobb (2919) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 19, 2012
355ml bottle. Pours opaque black with a nice fawn head. The nose has fresh coffee beans and a green vegetable note. The taste has more roasted coffee with a long creamy note in the background. The palate is full bodied, with a creamy middle texture and a fairly elegant finish. Hides the alcohol very well. Overall, good beer!

NordicV (1223) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - APR 19, 2012
Svart lätt trögflytande öl med ett stort härligt brunt skum. Ser ut som en lyxig efterrätt. Doftar mycket. Framförallt kaffe och mörk choklad. Även söta inslag av vanilj. Alla stora choklad, torkad frukt och kaffesmaker balanserar med en humlebeska. Mycket god.

Black color with thin beige head. Port wine and cappuccino aroma. Rich and chewy palate with with accents of toffee and vanilla.Strong but pleasant espresso finish that coats the tongue.

Blimey Kojo you have really knocked my socks off! The smell is an intense sticky toffee aroma only what I can guess that Willy Wonkers smells like. The taste is warm and refreshing and I only wish that I was drinking this now freshly off the slopes by a burning log fire. Amazing truly amazing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rejtable (1431) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2012
Tap from J Ryans. I’m getting an initial banana and vanilla hit. Middle and back are heavy on the coffee and sweet. Pours black. Low carbonation with lots of lacing.

inbirraveritas (1256) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 16, 2012
0.355 l bottle from „Csakajósör”, Bp. Pitch black coloured one with a two finger thick, creamy dark brown head. Intensive nose and aroma ruled by coffee escorted by chocolate, vanilla, brown sugar, dried fruits and alcohol in the background, mouthfeel is thick, oily and sticky. Long and warming tartbitter finish with earth, tart fruits, licorice and some spices. Robust, well done brew.

MrBunn (2507) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2012
Bottle. Thick and dark brown body, thin creamy head that dies quickly and aromas of bananas, chocolate and a little peat. Flavor is heavy with the banana flavor up front and late in the finish with chocolate, vanilla and a little peat in the mid-section. Not bad, but not great.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2012 Shared with John before the Furthur show. Jet black, big mocha head. Full of chocolate, coffee, vanilla, sherry, toasted malt flavors and aroma. Super smooth palate, really creamy.
