Apariencia: color negro completamente opaco, corona escasa y desaparece enseguida de color beige. Nada de carbónico. Aroma: muy intenso a café recién molido, no a un cafelito ni a un espresso, nada café tostado en grano. Sabor: muy intenso, cuerpo medio alto, evidentemente también tiene mucho café, algo de vainilla, pero nada de frutos maduros o especias. Retrogusto muy largo a... café! pero también notas de malta y vainilla. Alcohol muy bien integrado.

A potent slab of roasted coffee on the nose. As you would expect this continues in the mouth. A little one dimensional with not much in the way of hopping going on. A creamy mouth feel with a subtle bite from the alcohol. Not sure about the ’dry’ finish as, for me, it has a long roasted coffee finish. Tasty, if a little heavy-handed.

Poured black with a thick yet thin tan head. Aroma has tons of coffee with chocolate malts. Some alcohol noticeable with a touch of fruity yeast notes. Taste is very full-bodied and flavorful with lots of coffee and malty goodness. Very thick tasting, like eating coffee beans. Alcohol is slightly noticeable in the finish. Some slightly nutty flavors with some creamy text adds to the complexity. Finish is nice and smooth with a touch of fruit and more coffee. Overall a fantastic stout.

Milk Stout Esc! Has an underlining sweetness over top of the coffee flavor and aroma. For being 9%abv very smooth and a cloying sweetness!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

luttonm (4131) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 25, 2012
Draft at Csak a Jó Sör ("Only Good Beer") in Budapest (was also available in bottles). Rich, blackest brown with full chocolate cola head. Sweet nose, some alc, but lots of dry coffee. Sweet smooth body but a big kick of sweet toasty espresso. hides alc very well, some bittering on finish. plum, cherry fruits. Fantastic stout

JoeM500 (1908) - 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 (5295) - 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 (4907) - 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 (1774) - 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.
