UPDATED: JUN 4, 2008 Bottle with a HUGE thanks for lb4lb. Aroma of bitter coffee, dark, dry chocolate, vanilla bean and dry, roasted malt. Pours rich, full black. Oily pour with a reddish khaki head. Lots of bittersweet chocolate on the palate. Some coffee and dry malt. Not as complex as I was hoping. Medium to full bodied. Good carbonation. Finishes with a bitter chocolate and coffee astringincy. Thanks a ton DENIZ!

Re-rate 5/30/2008. This new batch is leaps and bounds worse than the last batch. Thin, ashy, astringent, bitter. Bitter roasted coffee, bitter roasted malt. Ugh... top 50 my ass.

Bottle from the First Houston Tasting
No light penetrates this bad boy. Smells of chocolate coffee and cocoa. Flavor follows suit. Full mouthfeel. Awesome beer; words won’t do it justice.

22.3oz bottle. Pitch black. 13.99 a bottle...at the store, not the bar. This beer is really quite delicious. Lots of chocolate and roasted malt flavor. The oats give it a nice creamy mellow body and the coffee delivers a subtle sweet bitterness in the finish. Completely overpriced, completely world class.

Bottle via john_adam2002. Very dark color and thick. Smell of roasted coffee, caramel, hops, pine, candy, dark chocolate, slight alcohol, citrus and minor smoke. Taste of roasted coffee, caramel, chocolate, pine, citrus, malt, hops, brown sugar and minor dark fruit. What a great stout. Nice and thick.

Pours a dark black with dark brown head. The aroma is an overpowering scent of roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Hints of chocolate, alcohol, and roasted maltiness accompany the strong roasted coffe flavor. I wish there was more of a balance to lessen the coffee taste slightly

Bottle. Finally getting around to rating this after procuring some through inertiaboy and Bieropholie (the website not the brewery). Dark black body with a massive creamy brown Aero bar like head. Fairly acidic roat in the aroma at first, plentiful accents of chocolate and mocha. Flavour is surprisingly bitter both from the hops and roast malt/coffee bitterness. Gets smoothed out by an underlying sweet malt and chocolate base. The bottle has been waiting for me for a while so I am wondering if the coffee has mellowed somewhat in the meantime. If so it was for the better in my opinion, I was expecting much more of a coffee-bomb, which would not have been to my liking as much. Smooth full bodied palate. Very nice!

Gorbalev (2923) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 24, 2007
Bottle courtesy of Hogtown Harry (thank you!!!). Pitch black, very dark brown cloudy head. Great aroma - strong roast, strong choclate, some alcohol, sweet. Good taste - all coffee, roast, lots of hops, and more and more roast! Only complaint - body is thin and watery. Great linger of roast and hops. Great stuff, more body and it is one of the best ever.

22.3 oz. bottle. Pours a dark black. Thin, whispy beige head. Aroma of roasted coffee, chocolate. Silky smooth mouthfeel. As expected, roasted coffee/espresso flavor. Some bitterness at the end, but a nice and creamy finish.

Fukito (735) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - NOV 24, 2007
Bottle at Chir´s, I think it was mes who pulled this one, october 07. Opaque black color with a medium, creamy, beige head. Slightly coal, milk chocolate and some tobacco nose on the nose, multilayered. Pretty fruity, charcola, english hops flavor. Oatmeal stout on steroids. Impressive. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy. Silky and perdurable hoppy/ coffee aftertaste. Amazing, warming, comforting oatmeal stout.

750 ml bottle from trade with Rciesla off BA site. Shared at the Houston Beer Tasting. Pours black with thin brown head which dissipated quickly except around the edge. Some lacing. Aroma is super coffee. Taste is espresso with some burnt flavor, maybe a hint of chocolate. Mouthfeel is medium with a bitter aftertaste. Loved this!
