Bottle. Pours jet black with quick fading tan head. Nose is dark malt, coffee, cacao, hops, jalapeno oil. Tastes choc malty, with a lot of hops, jalapeno peppery flavors, and bitter hops and coffee. This one didn’t work for me.

sonnycheeba (3470) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Cask. Pours deep, dark brown with thick, frothy tan head; good retention and spare lacing. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, earthy hops, faint dark fruit, and light vanilla. Flavor is malt dominate with light hops and fruit esters; heavy coffee taste throughout with a dry, coffee finish. Full body with medium carbonation and warmth.

TheJestersBeer (2039) - SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2012
355ml bottle. Pours pitchblack, with a dark brown head. The aroma is full of roasted coffe and espresso, chocolate, malt, ashes. Semi-sweet, full bodied, medium bitterness, creamy CO2. Roasted taste, loads of coffee beans, chocolate, vanilla, caramel, malt. Was hoping for something a little bit more complex, thins out a bit in the finish. (2012-03-10)

boto (1844) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Draught @ Headkeeper: this one pours a very dark brown, but still has a clearness to it. There is a very small light brown head that lingers awhile but leaves little lacing. The aroma is definitely coffee, but not like a cup of coffee. It smells more like a coffee liqueur (like Kahlúa) with a bit of sweetness. Also has some chocolate notes. The taste is very good. Chocolate, roastiness, coffee and a mild sweetness.

Kaffe, kaffe, kaffe men annars var det en god öl men med väldigt mycket kaffe i smaken. Slutsats: kaffe.

thebeertourist (4778) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2012
Bottle at In de Wildeman. Black with a light brown creamy head. Deeply roasted espresso aroma. A bit meaty flavours, together with roasted coffee and a hint of tart fruit. Lekker.

Viking63 (11) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 13, 2012
Poured into a chalice with a nice foamy brownish head. An aroma of chocolate, vanilla, and coffee set in. Had a nice flavoring of coffee and chocolate with a bit of a dry finish on the palate. Definately tasted like a premium imperial stout with coffee accents. It had some roasted notes but definately not overpowering. Just the right amount of coffee and chocolate sweetness put together into this wonderful stout. Definately deserves a repeat performance.

boxofrane (2085) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2012
Draft. Pours pitch black with a thick brown head. Smells of coffee, some vanilla, and some mocha. Taste is a coffee and cocoa. A little bit of booze but doesn’t taste the level of 8.9. A solid coffee Imp stout.

0,355 l bottle, Csakajósör, BP.
A veszett kutya brutálisan mély barna, harapható testtel indít, a habja nem egy hatalmas, krémesen bézs, szivacsos lepedö. Illata arra emlékeztet, mintha egy hirtelen satufékkel megálló kamionról kiborult vilna egy hatalmas adag pörkölt robusta kávé. Égett fa, erös paprika, markáns kávé és karamell, melasz képe rémlik fel, ami csak tovaterjed az ízlelésnél. A sör teste olajos és sürü, minden ízlelöbimbót betöltö. Az íz alapján kétségünk nem lehet, ebben a sörben megatonnányi kávéval operáltak, a hatalmas adag pörkölt gabonák adagolása mellett. Melasz és ismét espresso képe rémlik fel..Kegyelmet nem ismerö coffee stout!
