3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Almost pitch black with a brown touch and a mocca head. There are a lot going on here, off course plenty of coffee, also dark chocolate, vanilla, wood, licorice and a soft feeling like someone pour soem double cream into the glass. A fairly rich acidity that disturbs a bit and it is not as full bodied as I like my Imperial Stouts.

On tap at Csakajósör. Deep brown, almost black, with a creamy beige foam. Strong coffee, burnt wood, hints of hot peppers, caramel, molasses in the aroma. Dense, oily, smooth on the palate. Excellent one.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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

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.

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.

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!
