The coffee really steps up in the taste. It’s solidly there, the main flavour. Nice slightly bitter chocolate notes as well with the roasted barley and malts, black bread and a tiny hint of vanilla that mixes with the coffee for a mocha-like taste. Coffee flavour is not over powering but it is there. Some bakers chocolate mixed with the roasted barley and maltiness. It gives a mocha flavour. I enjoyed very much.

Aroma is some light hints of the rich malts, fairly pale otherwise. Taste is a rich roasty maltiness that is balanced pretty well with some light hopiness that leaves a slight tanginess. The malt depth isnt quite as deep as i hoped. Body is black with a creamy beige head that retains well.

marcus (7236) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle from Taylors Market, Sacramento. Pours near black with an attractive tan head and a chocolate aroma. There is a medium-bodied chocolate and treacle flavor with some coffee and a dry smoky finish.

Salmoniform (1195) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Opaque hue with creamy brown head that settled. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, cocoa, toffee, molasses, soy, cola. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness throughout with a great astringent bitterness in the following and a slight metallic finish. Overall this is a good brew.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2009
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of fonefan. Pours pitch black with a light brown head. Burned malty nose. Medium body, burned maltiness with a little dried fruits and some residual sugars. Some dark chocolate accents. Discreet malt bitterness. A little too sweet to be a proper Dry Stout, but a pleasant drink. 031009
