Bottle @ Ølbaren. Dark brown with a smallish, sticky beige head. Aroma is mildly coffee-based and with a roasted edge to it. Nice mouthfeel, not too thick nor too light. Flavour has lots of coffee with a heavy bitterness. Nice long aftertaste. Good brew.

This was lighter on the coffee flavor than I expected, but still a very good stout. Poured dark with a nice frothy head. Hints of roasted malts and brown sugar were finished off nicely with the light flavor of cappucino. Also nice strength but not overpowering at 8.3%.

75 cL bottle. Pours dark brown with a reddish hue. Aroma is mild coffee and light roasted. Flavour holds avery nice coffee heavy note to a solid bitterness. Slight herbal coffee flavour, yet smooth and nicely balanced. Nice coffee lingering finish too.

heemer77 (5294) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 15, 2008
Black body with ruby red highlights. Thick dense head with a medium khaki color. Strong coffee and blueberries dominate the aroma. Some cinnamon toast is also there in the background. The taste is medium coffee with some brown sugar notes. There is also a little bit of milk chocolate in the finish. Smooth and light body for the abv.

Speedle (266) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 15, 2008
black with a thin bubbly head....aroma of coffee and sweet malt aroma...thinnish mouth feel...bitter bottom of the coffee pot taste...lingering bitterness on the back part of the roof of my mouth...rich caramel without the sweetness...malty....coffee really picks up in the finish...not detecting any strong alcohol taste....very enjoyable, I just hope the booze effect offsets the coffee, I’ve gotta get up early tomorrow

Almost black with tiny head. Burned aroma with coffee and liquerice. Flavor has burned malt with liquerice and coffee. Ends slightly bitter.

Grovlam (4207) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2008
Bottle. Courtesy of Bierkönig. [Amager – Mikkeller Brew session @ Amager Bryghus] Huge beige creamy head that really lasted. Excellent display of lacework in the glass. Dark mahogany color. Light notes of chocolate and coffee. Some roasted malt as well. Over the palate hint of caramel, and again roasted malt with a hint of perfume and floral notes. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation and light dry texture. Moderated bitter flavor with good counter sweetness. Roasted malty light bitter finish that lingers.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 14, 2008
UPDATED: APR 13, 2012 Bomber from some pals - thanks, Tina and Joyce. On the initial pour, my immediate thought was that I have to get another bomber soon. Very flat, almost nothing happening in the carbo and zero head. Reading some other reviews, I wonder about this bottle. Faint coffee and chocolate in the nose, but the actual brew tastes a bit insubstantial, both in terms of stoutness and coffee-ness. I dig a good coffee stout too, so I’ll give this one another shot and rerate if appropriate.

TheSponge (342) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - JAN 13, 2008
Pours black. The coffee notes are perfect, and not over-powering at all. Bold, yet smooth, with just a slight alcohol bite in spite of its 8.3% APV. Excellent.

Christian (12885) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2008
Black with a lasting tan head. Really strong coffee aroma which isn’t entirely pleasant - has a note of sour, cold coffee. Caramel and dark malt is noticed in the background of the aroma. Flavour is dry, and also dominated by cold coffee, maybe even cold espresso, and with a lot of alcohol. Too much coffee, not enough stout. Cellaring might make it less harsh, but I doubt this beer will ever make me happy.
