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.

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!

Csak a jó sör, Budapest. Szép mélyfekete szín, kevés, ám annál kitartóbb krémes-laza bézs habbal megkoronázva. Illatában értékes pörkölt espresso kávé és maláta, karamell, csokoládé, vanília és kevés gyógynövényes érzetű komló található. Selymes, egészen könnyed ízében pörkölt kávé és maláta, tejcsokoládé és tejkaramell, illetve kevés aszalt cseresznye és komló bontakozik ki. Utóíze enyhén gyümölcsösen fanyar és tejeskávés, hosszan tartó. Olajos, de nem túl nehézkes teste van, közepesen száraz és egészen buborékos, mely tulajdonságoknak köszönhetően egészen könnyen iható, ráadásul az alkohol íze is csak halványan érződik. Nagyon-nagyon ízletes, könnyedebb stílusú imperial stout.

Ughsmash (7101) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Bottled. Poured very deep brown with a fingers’ worth of medium tan head. The aroma picked up sweet vanilla and cappuccino paired with blended chocolates and brewer’s licorice.. something bright in there that I couldn’t really place.. nice overall. The flavor found more coffee and coffee-inspired maltage throughout.. not a huge dose of roast, but there was enough.. light earthy bitter accents and dry peppery alcohol too.. finished with more quasi-sweet coffee and licorice. Medium-plus bodied with too much carbonation on the palate.. good balance beyond that, including the smooth middle.. tasty stuff.

On Tap at Tap and Mallet. Pours a nice thick dark brown with and espresso like head. Smells of dark chocolate, coffee, dark malts, and toffee. The flavor of this brew is dead on. Huge imperial stout flavor with a French vanilla coffee flavor lingering in the background. Sweet but not overly sugary. Palate is a little bit sticky but in a good way. This was Grrrrreat!

Shared by motortoddhead. Deep brown/black. Roasted malt, molasses, and roast coffee. Flavor is a semi-sweet mix of roasted malt, coffee, and brown sugar. Only slight acidity. Residual sticky, sweet and roasted malt. Good use of coffee on this one that bypasses the ultra-green aspects that I dislike in other beers.
