cagou007 (339) - FRANCE - JAN 6, 2015
Pours a beautiful deep dark color, but only a thin brown head. Nose is creamy coffee, with a hot of vanilla. Aromas are mainly coffee, but also some black chocolate, roasted malts, raisins and a light alcohol feeling. Kind of woody after-taste. OIly texture, low carbonation. Bitter and sweet finish. Enjoyable coffee stout, but it lacks deeper aromas and a better mouthfeel, something more creamy.

Bottle from Ship in a Bottle. Aroma is heavy with coffee, vanilla and roasted beans or very dark chocolate. Pours black with a medium brown head. Taste is complex with some raisins, much coffee and chocolate. Very tasteful. Palate is full bodied and oil-like. Overall a very nice imperial stout and I highly recommend it.

Tomy63 (196) - Clermont-Ferrand, FRANCE - DEC 29, 2014
couleur noire, peu de mousse, nez légèrement fermier, sur le café (pas trop noir), beaucoup de vanille. Bouche assez douce pour 9%, avec un côté vanillé bien marqué, gourmande, un peu d’agrumes, café, cacao, pas spécialement sucrée, mais manquant un peu d’amertume. Longueur moyenne, sur le café, quelques notes fermières. Un stout assez facile mais bien fait.

ABT_S54 (219) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2014
33cl bottle served in a snifter. Black with no head after a few seconds. Aroma is dirty coffee with a dry quality. Taste is quite earthy, dry coffee on top of the standard imperial stout flavours. Less powerful coffee presence than Mout & Mocca which to me was undrinkable. Not my favourite style of imperial stout but overall this is a nice example whilst still having the earthy, roasted qualities of coffee.
