Bottle. Syrup-thick and ebony in the glass, with a dense head of caramel-colored bubbles. Aroma is intense with coffee beans, hazelnuts, vanilla and a bit of toasted sourdough. The flavor is more subdued and far more bitter, with a tangy chocolate twang, mild nuttiness and a finish like day-old coffee. Medium-light body; mild fizz. It avoids tasting artificial, as most hazelnut coffees are wont to do. Good stuff.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with small beige head that leaves spotty lacing. The aroma is roast and hazelnuts. Medium mouth nice roast and nuts with lingering bitterness, good.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2015 Draught. Lingering sandy head like foam on a coffee / root beer float. Nose and taste are same: rich chocolate, nut and roast coffee ice cream pie with fudge icing and graham cracker crust. Taste is sweet like the best ice cream - an enhancer not the end to a marshmallow means. This is the reserve ice cream for adults. Bitter chocolate and bitter coffee or good bitter roast finish masterfully balances the recipe. Palate is smooth but filling enough for the best small, big coffee beer lover to nurse this alluringly libidinously decadent profligate pie of a 6% beer. Overall, rather roasty.

Black pour from 22oz bottle at home. Choclate and cocoa aroma. Creamy and milky. Brown head. Nutmeg and carmel notes. Very good

Bottle served in snifter: pours a deep cola brown with an okay head and minimal lace.Holy Hazelnut Coffee Man! Some roast and char too with faint mocha undertones. Honestly this is just too one dimensional and too lacking of body to enjoy the full bottle. Well at least they did not hold back on the Hazelnut so +1 there.

22 oz. bottle. Since when is drinking a beer supposed to be a challenge? "Feeling strong? Step up to SixKiller and see who’s boss!" Isn’t it more important to have a good tasting beer than to "see who’s boss"? This has a nice appearance, pours jet black with a creamy, khaki head that lasts and leaves thick lacing. Aroma is strong, bitter coffee with a slight hazelnut nose. Taste is dominated by astringent, bitter coffee, very little sweetness. The bitterness is kind of overwhelming, not very tasty. It does seem to get smoother after it warms up a bit. Medium to full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, and bitter finish. Not sure if I can finish this one. Another disappointment (too bitter) from a local brewery.

Wittales (693) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Appearance was clear black with creamy beige lasting 1 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are coffee, chocolate, hazelnut, brown sugar with cream. Taste are latte expresso shot upfront with chocolate, toffee hazelnut creamer mid swallow, then slight bitter baker powder at end. Palate was smooth creamy CO2 with medium body, then lasting coffee bitter finish. A solid coffee stout, needs to back down the bitterness a touch.

Dark black on the pour. Almost a morning coffee roasty aroma. Hints of dark chocolate and hazelnut with a light bitter and hoppy taste that finishes smoothly on the palate.

Bottle sent by GT2, thank you very much! Sampled 3/21. Pours a dark chocolate color with reddish cola tinge and creamy tan head, good lacing. Aroma is massive hazelnut coffee, slight roasted barley, slightly cardboardy, sweet malts. Taste is a bit of a letdown after the nose: hazelnut coffee, black chocolate, yogurty tang, lingering astringent hop bitterness, roasted barley, burnt toast, herbal hops. Slightly weak mouthfeel. Improves as it warms, though. I’d prefer more body and balance.

radarsock (1096) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Had on tap at Crush & Brew, Temecula. $6.50 for the full pint. Pours jet black supporting a sudsy, thin khaki head,1 finger in length. Aromas of marsh rosemary, straw, candied sugar, cocoa nibs, DME, and farmhouse yeast. Tastes the same with the addition of baker’s chocolate powder, mildew, roasted lavender, and white truffle by mid-palate. Bitter hops, charcoal, bay leafs, pottery clay, and palm tree bark by swallow. Ruggedly astringent. Soothingly warming. Would have again.
