12oz. bottle at Stags Head NYC. Pours pitch black with small foamy off white head that dissapates quickly. Aroma is huge espresso. Taste is of coffee and slightly sweet with chocolate and oatmeal notes. Incredibly smooth and lovely. Beautiful balance. Terrific finish and the bitterness does not linger at all, lovely finish.

(Thanks Chris "Budznsudz")
A- Strong notes of coffee, chocolate, espresso, mocha, roasty, robust, subtle caramel, nuts.
A- Black color, dark liquid, tan head.
T- Coffee, chocolate, mocha, balanced, rich, complex.
P- Full body, creamy texture, average carbonation, smooth finish.
O- I have been dying to try this beer since I got into craft. My day finally came. This bottle had about 2 years of age on it and damn does it age well. From the first pop of the cap the aromas of mocha fill the air. I felt like I just stepped into a coffee shop. This beer is also about as beautiful as you get with the rich black color and gorgeous tan head. As if this wasn’t good enough, at first sip you’re mind will be blown. Mellow and smooth, just so rich and robust. Strong coffee and chocolate flavors are what you have in store. From start to finish, I savored every damn drop of this beer. I’d like to try a fresh one to compare, but I don’t imagine that it could get any better. This is just like breakfast as the description says. If I didn’t know any better, I would say I was drinking Kahlua. At 8.3% this is unbelievably smooth. Maybe one of the best beers I have ever had. The only regret I have on this one is the fact that after I drank it I had no more.

I had been looking for this beer for so long and i finally stumbled upon it at a liquor store where you can request beer shipments. It was everything I imagined. Strong coffee and chocolate flavors, with caramel and roasted flavors. It was amazing and I hope to see it again.

Dick und stellenweise schokoladig. Dazu ein ordentlicher Bumms zwischen die Eier. Dennoch Anklänge von wässrigem Sirup mit viel geröstetem Malz, etwas Kaffee und einer milden Säure zum Ende hin. Fein !

Bottle with the highest thanks from a trade with BenH! The beer pours out in a beautiful deep dark black colour with steady creamy low head and smooth body. Wonderful aroma of chocolate, coffee and malt. Taste of intense chocolate, strong but also mild coffee, toffee, cake and cookies. Malty, barley-wine like finish with notes of prunes and rum. Very delicious and smooth to drink, I loved this beer.

This is a great beer. Lots of coffee and chocolate hints. The alcohol is vey well hidden. There are honestly other beers within this style that may exceed this beer.

Deliciously smooth, great with any food, black as night, inviting aroma. Cicero’s pizza in St. Louis is a great pairing. Terrific!

Mol bona stout amb infinitat de matisos torrefactes. Una mica agresiva al paladar per el meu gust
