blklab2007 (1984) - Connecticut, USA - APR 27, 2014
Bottle poured a black in color with a coating of brown head that fell away. Aroma has coffee, mild chocolate, alcohol, and dark malts. Mouth feel is hefty with slow carbonation. Flavor is heavy on the malts, big black coffee, plenty of roast, and dark chocolate. It has an oat like thickness and the coffee is super amped up.

Nate (3740) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2014
From bottle, courtesy of Joe N. Nice coffee aroma, rich and malty with molasses, chocolate, roasted barley, and sweet alcohol vapors. Dark black opaque with tan lacing head. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation. Starts and stays sweet, rich with coffee, chocolate, cherry wood, roasted barley, and alcohol - fusel but not rough. Bitter nutty finish with lingering sweetness. Alcohol warming with light bitter after.

Tap at Pizza Luce. Black with a thin light brown head. Rich malts, milk, alcohol and light roasted coffee. Taste has a malty sweetness followed with a light dry coffee bitterness. Body is lighter for an imperial stout with a bubbly water feel.

Pours a dark, oily, brown-black with tawny head. Aroma of fruit, chocolate, coffee. Flavor is quite sweet, with pronounced coffee up front. Anise and dark fruit and quite a noticeable booziness. It’s a good stout and a nice winter beer.

CanIHave4Beers (3322) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Pours basically black with a small head that leaves spotty lacing on the glass.

The aroma is coffee & chocolate with some very light hoppiness. It’s sweet smelling, aromatic... really inviting and enjoyable.

The beer is a touch boozy, it’s got some good dark chocolate, it’s plenty bitter with lots of coffee and some espresso. Kinda sweet in a nice way...

Shelf Beer?
