4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
minimal tan head, dark brown to black body. a very tempting aroma for a coffee appreciator such as myself. And the bitter is unrivaled among stouts. I’ve not had a stout this well balanced, and with such a pleasant hoppiness in a while. I had the opportunity to visit this brewery this summer, and I was delighted to find their winter seasonal available at my local beer store when after I returned to the US. Yippee!

Nice dark appearance with a slight coffee aroma. I'm not a huge fan of coffee beers but this one has a nice dry start with a slightly sweet/coffee finish. Pleasently surprised

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Botella de 33 cl en cimmeria en el momento el 07-06-2914. Fecha de cons pref para 02-2015. Color negro intenso brillante con bastante espuma al servir, quedándose al poco tiempo en una pequeña corona de color beige oscuro. Aromas de café quemado y achicoria bastante intensos. Cuerpo medio de 7 vol con bastante espuma al paso por boca, que va desapareciendo poco a poco hasta quedarse casi en un suave licor de café torrefacto. Sabores ligeros, predominando el café y achicoria, algo de maltas tostadas y cacao. Buena increíble su sabor de café tostado y potente. Para repetir de nuevo,, claro.

Bottle from Hop Hideout in Sheffield. Pours black with a tan head. Wow. This is very tasty. Start off a with a little sweetness with notes of coffee, chocolate and liquorice. The finish is dry and full of delicious coffee flavour. Very, very good. Just a tiny bit over carbonated would be my only criticism.

A great beer from the bottle or on tap.
Strong, roasty coffee aroma with background vanilla, raisins. Rich brown colour with tan head. The taste is where it becomes exceptional. Freshly brewed coffee, chocolate, nuts, vanilla. Great bitter/sweet balance. Gorgeous mouthfeel, smooth, full bodied, creamy. Soft carbonation. Long finish.

Pours black with a fine tan head. Nose is coffee, raisin, vanilla. Flavor is obviously coffee, dark chocolate, dark fruit, with a slightly burnt toast finish. The mouthfeel is really incredible, with very fine carbonation and silky, velvety, slightly thick mouthfeel. Amazing.

On tap at world of beer in key west fl. Beautiful pearly black pour with a thin aromatic head smelling of dark coffee and hints of chocolate. Smooth on the palate with a nice aftertaste of fresh espresso. Very smooth and delectible overall

Aromas of strong coffee and dark chocolate are amazing. I love this beer. The 7% ABV never kicks in for some reason which is a slight disappointment.
