BORIS the Crusher made with coffee from the Hippie Coffee Company in Canton, OH. Freshly roasted coffee flavor and aroma add satisfying levels of complexity to this robust stout, perfectly complimenting its intense, rich roasted character. Cold infusion with whole coffee beans keeps the bitterness low and the flavor high!

Thanks to errl for sharing this bottle. Dark brown to black pour with a tan head. The aroma is full of heavy coffee with some green jalapeńo notes. The flavor is similar. The coffee and chocolate are accentuated by some peppery character and some heavily roasted malt. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Great beer.

Shared a bottle at BeerTemple in Amsterdam. Pours a viscous black with virtually no head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, vanilla, oak, hazelnut. Full bodied, velvetty mouthfeel, bittersweet on the palate with a roasty sweet coffee finish. Taste is coffee, chocolate, hazelnut, dates, vanilla. So tasty

Bomber from the brewery via PUB’R. Turbid and thick black pour with tan head. Nose was roasty dark malt, coffee, dark chocolate, mild hops. Tastes thick and complex on the palate, with dark malt up front, coffee and chocolate syrup, but not sweetness, at mid-palate, and some vanilla and hops late. Very good.

Angelmonster (120) - Colorado, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Nice full body, smells of burnt coffee, tons of smoke, chocolate, and some booze. Taste is big on espresso, chocolate syrup, oak and sweet malts. Kinda boozy for 9.4% Overall solid coffee beer, but probably not in my top 5 in that style.
