The coffee loverís consummate beer. Brewed with an abundance of flaked oats, bitter and imported chocolates and two types of coffee, this stout has an intense fresh-roasted java nose topped with a frothy, cinnamon-colored head that goes forever.

Midnight brown pour with espresso foam cap. Nose has aromas of chocolate and coffee, nice! Taste replay of aroma plus some dark sweet and tart fruits, and some notable hop edge which plays off the added coffee edge. Peche might be awfully competitive to this but this is great. Medium full feel.

Pours with a black body and a very large, dense, rocky, light brown head. Aroma was malty and roasted with an enormous amount of coffee. Coffee was just too strong in the flavor. I found it near undrinkable with the coffee and hop bitterness. This bottle is pretty old and I feel like Iím missing something, so Iím willing to give it another chance. Highly disappointed.

This beer poured a deep red with a reddish brown head that was pretty thick but not too much. I could smell the beer from about 4 feet away and it was very powerful. The taste was similar to that of other chocolate/coffee stoudts that ive had but it was balanced very well. Nice beer for a cold day.

Bottle. The pour is dark dark brown with a small tanned head that leaves some lacings. The smell is a really tight mix of coffee beans, sweet dark chocolate, roasted malts and subtle hop aromas. The taste follows suit. Itís somewhat sweet in the mouth with intense notes of coffee beans, freshly brewed coffee, sweet chocolate, bitter chocolate and roasted malts. It gets slightly tannic in the middle. Hints of hops. The finish is rather dry and has a nice coffee bitterness to it, and faiding notes of roasted malts and chocolate. Smooth on palate with well balanced carbonation. A bit too dry in the finish though. All in all, an impressive coffee beer. Not overly complex, but the flavors are integrated in a really impressive way.

Totally Black with a minimal Brown head, a roasted coffee with some anise on the nose. The same in terms of flavor but adds a dark chocolate in the after taste. The flavors stay for what seems like forever (A Good Thing!!). Is everything that itís advertised to be... A truely GREAT BEER!!!

draught. pours black with tan head. you get the aroma of fresh brewed coffee in the morning and smell the oats. i would relate this beer to the all-in-one meal gum from willy wonka. when was drinking this it made me feel like i was going through the process of eating a full warm breakfast on a cold morning. i could taste the cofee, oats, chocolates and spices coming together and making your taste buds beg for more . best beer iíve had to date

Beer pours dark brown to black with a brown head. There are slight brown highlights at the edges. The first aroma is strong black coffee. As the beer warmed to room temperature, I got more of a chocolate smell but coffee was always the main aroma. The taste is expectedly black coffee, easily the most coffee-filled beer I have ever drank. You never get too much chocolate flavor, but you get bitterness from the chocolate which is nice. The oatmeal comes through in the mouthfeel, making the beer very thick and creamy. Very good beer, one of the best I have ever drank.

Pours out black with smal brown head. Smells sweet and roasty. Taste is more of the same with some bite. Flavors of chocolate, coffee, cereal, cocoa, and hops. Thick and creamy stuff. Balanced and very drinkable.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2010 A very flavorful and hearty stout. Flavor is of coffee and bitter chocolate. A very different experience and one I plan to repeat. RE-RATE 1/25/2010 - For some reason this one didnít taste as good the second time, not sure whatís going on.
