seritomi (286) - HUNGARY - MAR 28, 2012
Basszus ilyen fekete sört még nem láttam! Plusz egy nagyon komoly olajos sűrűség társul a gyönyörű külső mellé. A habja is fenyegetően sötét... Itt evidens, hogy atomsűrű kávéfelhő terjeng szintén jelentős alkohollal és enyhe gyümölccsel. Először édes de nem túlzottan aztán jön a kávé de ez sem annyira durván, mint vártam. Igaz nekem ez már sok annak ellenére, hogy minden nap kávézok. Nem lesz a kedvencem de nagyon jó a kategóriában.

Peacehammer (614) - California, USA - MAR 27, 2012
pours a straight, thick black with no head. Good coffee aroma. Strong coffee flavor and finish, but it is strong without being overwhelming. No hint if the almost 9 percent alcohol. Impressive beer.

DYCSoccer17 (3285) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 25, 2012
12 ounce bottle purchased at The Davis Beer Shoppe. The aroma has a ton of anise and licorice character. Some rubbery pool-toy notes are also present. Where’s the coffee? Opaque black body with a smallish tan head that leaves no lacing. Starts a little astringent. Becomes a bit sweet with some cocoa sugariness. Finishes with moderate coffee flavors. Sugary, sweet, and cloying finish.

Draught @ Queens head. Coffee dominated. Not in a bitter way. Notes of chocolate liquor and vanilla. Smooth. Vinous.

finol (2091) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2012
Draught at Queens Head, Stockholm. Pours black with a huge, firm tan head. Lots of coffee and chcolate, some red berries, low bitterness. Drinkable and smooth.

A typical coffee stout. Pours dark with a quickly dissipating head. Chocolate and caramel coffee aroma. Slightly watery palate.

Black color with a very brown head. Aroma is coffee and roasted malts and coffee. Oh, there is some chocolate there too. Not bad...

MrHangover (2449) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 22, 2012
Bottle @ de Paas. Dark opaque colour, aroma of burnt caramel, burnt and roasted malts and dark coffee. Aroma returns in the flavour, having the coffee really present, followed by some burnt caramel. A bit too much burnt flavour for me, but still a very good beer and a decent imperial stout.

SDalkoholic (2124) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAR 20, 2012
Bottle from Best Damn Beer Shop: Created almost no formation of head except for a small O-shaped ring while a blacked out liquid rested below. Aroma is bold with a java mocha coffee smell but there is a decent olfaction of chocolate and dark black malts. The flavor is rich and robust with a slight taste of roast coffee but I’m not sure I’m convinced that this is regular instead of decaf.

Thomasalias (320) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 19, 2012
0,355l bottle from Csakajósör, Budapest. Black opaque color with minimal brown head. Harsh coffee odor, a bit burnt. Bitter, pure coffee aroma with a smoky, caramel, treacly flavour. After the huge bitterness some sweetness also appears. Dry, coffee-bitter taste. Medium body with oily texture and soft carbonation. Epic bitter-sour coffee finish. Drinking it is like drinking real coffee without sugar or milk. Strong, harsh, intensive... WILD!
