Draft @ Beer Temple. Aroma is mostly roast and liquorice, faint coffee. Flavour is a nice mocca coffee and roast goodness with a sidenote of fruity malts. Good stuff.

Countbeer (4427) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - FEB 20, 2012
Bottle: Pours a black beer, with just a deep dark brown edge. Medium lively brown head that changes quick into a smaller vast head/lacing. After a longer while, thereís only a black beer left in the glass. Smell coffee, toffee, dark bitter rum liquorice, (dried) raisin, bit boozy, roasted coffee, burned barleys, burned malts and a slight touch of vanilla. Taste is a bit out of tone, but not bad. Thereís some good coffee roast, bitter, roasted/burned malts/barleys, roasted autumnal herbs, some dark chocolate, toffee and caramel, light vanilla and again a light boozy tint. There seems to be some kind of dark liquorice, but changes into a more dark chocolate bitterness. The out of tone exists out of the (roasted) coffee, (roasted)†chocolate and (roasted)†liquorice... Bit unbalanced.. But hey, thatís only one minor thingy... Good bitter coffee roast (liquorice) dark chocolate vanilla aftertaste. Low carbo, soft creamy almost silky mouthfeel, full body and a creamy texture. I really like the label, expected more of this beer, but again, itís absolutely not bad!

brokensail (10935) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Pours deep, dark black with a small mocha colored head. For a coffee stout, this doesnít smell much like coffee. I get a bit of dark chocolate and maybe even some fruit, but not much coffee. Sweet milk chocolate and a bit of molasses and caramel. The coffee does seem to be there in some capacity on the palate, but itís not all that strong. Otherwise, more chocolate, cocoa, and roasted malt with a subtle sweetness of toffee.

Tmoney99 (10664) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Bottle. Poured a black color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted malt, chocolate and coffee aroma. Medium sweet roasted malt and coffee flavor with a medium coffee sweet and small alcohol bite finish of moderate duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a solid beer.

BREWMUSKCLES (2234) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 15, 2012
initial aroma of rubbing alcohol. flavor of alcohol and vanilla the beer is creamy and frothy with flavors of caramel and toffee with a fruity metallic composite that makes me think of plum pudding that is somewhat on the sweet side. a bit warming though muted the beer looks good in the pour and my bottles had a mocha head that dissapeared in some order. my kind of holiday beer. seems off balance yet with some intrigue. coffee in the alcohol with some deep dark chocolate. lingering rye hop finish.

mcmisko (352) - New York, USA - FEB 14, 2012
Pours near black with a dark brown head. Smells like coffee and chocolate, but smell is not too lifted. Taste very smooth and creamy, with coffee, milk chocolate and sweet rich cola flavors. Pretty thick, but smooth and clean mouth feel. Coffee flavors are not over powering and not near as strong as other coffee stouts Iíve had, but this is a great brew.
