Smokey pork bbq nose. Very sweet (too sweet?) cherry lollipop finish. Good, but no cappuccino flavor. Dark beer but not stout.

Btl pours a deep dark brown with ruby highlights. Big billowy,fluffy tan head that lingers forever leaving massive amounts of lace on glass. Aromas of cocoa, espresso beans, brown sugar, dark bread, figs and alcohol. Tastes of chocolate,coffee,prunes,earth,and alcohol. Medium body, silky smooth mouthfeel, perfect carbonation, and a sweet slightly hot finish. At first I felt this stout was average at best. Then it proceeded to warm up a bit, that is when the flavors and aromas started to shine through. I hate to say this but if the ABV were to be toned down a bit, this stout would be phenomenal. It has such a nice mouthfeel I would have thought it was a milk stout. If you like coffee and chocolate you will love this beer!

I’ve had this in my beercellar since april 2013 - Now 2 years later it’s time to open it! Great nose: Coffee, chocolate, dark bread, mocha. Taste of coffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate, pumpernickel, dark fruit and some vanilla. Very smooth! Medium to full body and light carbonation. This was very good two years ago and it still is! The years in the cellar has done the beer just good.

Pours black like oil with khaki colored head. Coffee, roasted malt, and a little chocolate on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more coffee. Like a nice cup o’ joe with some cocoa and booze.

Drank from a snifter glass at Delicious Heights. Strong aromas of coffee, strong taste of coffee but a bit of a bourbon finish. Nothing spectacular...

Fatehunter (1518) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - APR 10, 2015
Pours a thin tan head on a black body. The aroma is coffee, chocolate, burnt toast and wood. The taste full. A punch of bitter black coffee and burnt wood, slight mellowing with roasted malt and finishes with a short sweet note. The texture is thick. Outstanding.

Poobah (309) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - APR 10, 2015
Dark brown with a thick, creme brulee head, generous lacing, and a dark chocolate, coffee nose. Easy intro with a mildly-carbonated, malty mouthfeel followed by a dark roast coffee, dark chocolate finish with some alcohol warming.

Jabah (139) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2015
A good overall stout. Very dark, not super heavy, but a nice medium thickness. Decent carbonation with a fuzzy dark head. Flavors of coffee, chocolate, malts, etc. The coffee flavor was not overwhelming like some other coffee/mocha stouts I tried, but noticeable for sure. Will buy again.
