The coffee lover’s 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.

Loved this beer. Strong coffee, chocolate and oatmeal flavors. Very smooth with a slight hop bitterness. One of my favorites for sure.

LLaurin (321) - Motala, SWEDEN - OCT 20, 2016
Heavy nose with lots of fresh brewed coffee and some bitterness. Colour is dark almost quite black. Taste is rich but still a little weak. Pumpernickel and some rye bread in the taste. Palate is a little flat but still impressive but it remains a good impression.

Cajun (407) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - OCT 17, 2016
*400th rating* - Bottle - Pours black with tan head. Aroma of coffee, dark bread, chocolate, and a hint of refrigerated flowers. Flavors of COFFEE, baker’s chocolate, burnt chocolate muffin, hops in center and finish. Definitely get more coffee than other Imperial Stouts. Dry bitter, bakers chocolate aftertaste. C’est bon!

Flaska från SB. Svart med ljusbrunt skum. Söt och mustig doft av kaffe och choklad. Mjölkig munkänsla med rejäl kaffesmak.

Bottle. Chocolate, slightly sour milk, coffee, cookies and soy sauce. Very good balance for a breakfast stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ctipping (1411) - Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Originally reviewed 10/6/2011. Very dark body with an ample khaki head. The head lasts forever; impressive for a stout. Nose is coffee, but not intense coffee, which is nice. While the coffee is dominant, I get a nice chocolate aroma and a distinctly different roasted malt. Tastes of coffee in the front, of course, followed by chocolate primarily. It has a strong coffee bitterness throughout, but finishes pretty clean. Medium bodied and drinks nicely. High carbonation in this bottle. So high that it almost feels dry in the finish. Nice coffee flavor with an abundant oatmeal and chocolate presence.

OrthoDoc (188) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 12, 2016
Outstanding, easy drinking stout. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, and sweetness. Taste follows the nose. Incredibly smooth but has a definite coffee bitterness. A definite buy when available. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Turtles (2049) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 12, 2016
355ml bottle from Systembolaget. Near black, small and short lasting khaki head, some lacing. Rich, soft roasted, coffee aroma, vanilla and chocolate. Full-bodied, medium carbonated, silky mouthfeel. A bit heavier roasted taste than the aroma, roasted barley, espresso and roasted coffee beans, bitter cocoa and creamy fudge, soft oats, vanilla and cinnamon. Complex still easy to drink. Pleasant cocoa bitter and chalky finish.

Black color, small brown head. Aromas of French press coffee, vanilla, chocolate and roasted malt. Balanced coffee taste with chocolate and a slight earthy sensation during the dry finish. Solid, but the K in KBS is apparently very important, beacuse without it, this is just BS ;)
