MrHangover (3950) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 22, 2012
Bottle @ de Paas. Dark opaque colour, aroma of burnt caramel, burnt and roasted malts and dark coffee. Aroma returns in the flavour, having the coffee really present, followed by some burnt caramel. A bit too much burnt flavour for me, but still a very good beer and a decent imperial stout.

SDalkoholic (2339) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAR 20, 2012
Bottle from Best Damn Beer Shop: Created almost no formation of head except for a small O-shaped ring while a blacked out liquid rested below. Aroma is bold with a java mocha coffee smell but there is a decent olfaction of chocolate and dark black malts. The flavor is rich and robust with a slight taste of roast coffee but I’m not sure I’m convinced that this is regular instead of decaf.

Thomasalias (320) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 19, 2012
0,355l bottle from Csakajósör, Budapest. Black opaque color with minimal brown head. Harsh coffee odor, a bit burnt. Bitter, pure coffee aroma with a smoky, caramel, treacly flavour. After the huge bitterness some sweetness also appears. Dry, coffee-bitter taste. Medium body with oily texture and soft carbonation. Epic bitter-sour coffee finish. Drinking it is like drinking real coffee without sugar or milk. Strong, harsh, intensive... WILD!

joeneugs (5751) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 19, 2012
Pours black with a fizzy brown head. The aroma is fudge, coffee and tar. Mildly astringent with some alcohol esters. The flavor is dark chocolate and lots of spent coffee grounds. Roast and tar in the finish with some mild fruitiness and black licorice. Very creamy and full mouthfeel. Palate coating with mild notes of buttered toffee. Not bad, especially for the price.

Damico (3144) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2012
Pours dark black coffee unclear with a decent creamy tan head...on nitro at Station Taproom. Aroma of light sweet roasted coffee and cream. The flavor of roasted sweet coffee comes in so nicely with chocolate notes on a delicious creamy body.

DocLock (9998) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2012
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 (5077) - 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 (2391) - 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)
