12 oz bottle, split with a friend. Pours a thick black color, nearly opaque. Foamy tan head with good lacing. Aroma was strongly coffee and malt. Flavor was coffee, roasted malt, and some chocolate. Had a very nice sour backside as well. Overall, this was an excellent beer, and I’d definitely get it again.

(35 cl bottle from Toft Vin poured into Rochefort goblet; BBD: June 2015) Pours black with one finger toffee head. Decent retention and nice lace. Aroma is subdued caramel and roasted malt with notes of dark fruit and a hint of coffee. Oily texture, soft carbonation, medium to full body and a lingering slightly sweet finish. Flavour is softly sweet with notes of vanilla. Remniscient of Samuel Smith’s Imperial Stout.

Dark body and thin head. Odd lacing. Interesting mouthfeel, oily yet not thick. Toast and roast aromas, umami, some black coffee. It’s odd but interesting. (33cl bottle shared with Alex, from Saveur Bière)

It pours black with a 2 finger head of tannish foam.
I get roasted malt, milk chocolate, and some coffee.
Very roasty to my palate, coffee grounds are strongish, dark chocolate bitterness, hops bring a hint of fruit. Nice.
Nice body and mouth feel.
This is very good and not over the top with the abv. Geez, look at that lacing!

this was like a stout version of coffee bender. coffee with a side of beer. delicious and aromatic, not alot of complexity our stoutishness, if you will. it did mask the 7.5% almost completely, and the coffee/roasted malt aspect was quite nice, so i will score it fairly high myself, but it wasn’t a 99th percentile beer for me.
