Had this one at my favorite local watering hole. It’s billed as made from Sebastopol coffee and packs a wallop without ever letting on that it contains so much ABV. Goes down smooth, finishes bitter (very nice brew). My go-to beer when they don’t have anything else I fancy.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a pitch black with a one finger tan head with some light lacing. Aroma is of coffee, roasted malt, vanilla, caramel, and some molasses. Taste is similar to the aroma with some nice coffee, vanilla cream, caramel, and light coco notes. Has a medium-full body with a creamy, silky mouthfeel, and a slightly bitter, medium-long finish

Not a big coffee fan, but gave it a shot. Smells of roasted coffee. Has a deep opaque color. Has a very strong coffee flavor. Has a mix of milk and sugar. finishes a harsh bitter flavor. It does hide the alcohol fairly well.

Dégustée (bouteille) le 8 juin 2012 au Mondial de la Bière 2012 à Montréal (D10C3KPPO). Bière noire opaque. Col beige crémeux, mince et durable. Odeur de café aigre. Très douce, assez sucrée, assez amère. Goût de café marqué et de sucre, de mélasse bien présent. Pas trop lourde ni sirupeuse, alcool ne ressort pas trop.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours to about a finger length head that retains pretty well and leaves creamy rings of lacing. Aroma of roasted coffee and chocolate; was expecting some more milk notes with cappuccino, but didn’t notice them as much. Flavor is lots of burnt roast with, again, only the most minor of milk note. A good beer, but not a wower. I was hoping for a little more cappuccino also.

Some decent roast malt but this is a huge coffee bomb. A little too much, enough that the other elements are left behind. Finishes with bitter coffee. Pours black without much head or lacing for a stout. On tap at DC Summerfest.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
A very good smooth stout. Not entirely black and enough stout character to get the job done. Coffee adds a great dimension.

22oz bottle 5/22/14 (Binny’s Downers Grove)-40° in Snifter-Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, and roasted malt. Taste of chocolate, coffee, malt, and finishes with a bitterness. This medium bodied brew is a bit lighter than most imperial stouts but this hides the alcohol very well. Good brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A decent dive into dark territory. Chocolate and espresso wafts from the thin tan head. Some vanilla as well. Being a stout it is dark brown and opaque. I found this one a bit bitter with slightly stinging coffee aftertaste. A medium thick mouthfeel on this baby. I would not buy again over other stouts but beer is beer and I would gladly take this so-so suds-bucket and dump it in me again.

Wow. This one is all dark roast coffee... with a backbone of roasted malt. The nose is light coffee and malty.
