Kosmokrator (849) - - OCT 28, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2015 Impenetrabile color nero con un cappello poco persistente di soffice schiuma marroncina. Aroma preponderante di caffè con sentori di cioccolato fondente e cereali intensi ed avvolgenti; gusto carico di note di espresso e cacao, più lievi tocchi di zucchero a velo e vaniglia. Corposa e morbida al palato, struttura oleosa e setosa con un’effervescenza piacevole che la rende meno "spessa". Caffettosissima!!

pityu (622) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 9, 2016
Bottle - Black colour, medium, creamy light brown head with average retention and fine lacing. Intense coffee aromas with some toasted malts, caramel and chocolate. Taste is also ruled by coffee and chocolate. Full body, soft carbonation, smooth texture, long roasted finish. Alcohol is well disguised. Well rounded coffee stout, easy drinkable and smooth.

Sjohnh (726) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2016 Gosh. Expected the coffee. Not so much the banana, which is prominent in the taste and the nose and has a softening effect. So, dark of course, with a short lived brown head. Low carb, full body. One of the most drinkable stouts I’ve had at this ABV.

alexmate (56) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2016
Tastes as it should, it is made with real coffee so no synthetic falseness. It has a much sweeter aftertaste (vanilla and cream) than I expected and despite the high percentage it is very well balanced.
