22oz from Samís, Durham. Whoa, this is good. Crushed velvet, super smooth, strained espresso goodness. A big soupy pour with a fine frothy cappucino head. The aroma is big and malty, and the taste - particularly as it warms - is massively coffee-licious. Fine roast malts, with some real heft to the body (I reckon thatís the oats), and a nicely complex finish (with hints of pepper, anise, and dark chocolate). Very fine.

22 oz bottle via Xnoxhatex. Pours a midnight black with a huge brown head. Nose is divine espresso, chocolate, and vanilla. Tastes just like is smells but it is actually more one dimensional than i was expecting. Strightforward chocolate and coffee with a somewhat ashy and fleeting finish. Some subtle grapefruit hoppiness does come through a bit in the afterttaste. Donít get me wrong, it is quite good, not not as ígreatí as I was expecting from all the hype. Body is medium/heavy and carbonation is medium.

Bottle. Pours midnight motor oil opaque. gorgeous. Thin khaki head leaves light lacing on my glass. The aroma featured notes of coffee dark chocolate, some sweetness. The flavor is deliciously complex. The nose seemed sweet and this gave way to a bitterness and coffee that complimented each other perfectly. There were notes of chocolate both (dark and milk), roasted malt, and oatmeal. The finish is slightly sweet and bitter like a nice espresso. The mouth feel was very smooth, the alcohol is well hidden. Delicious! A superior coffee stout.

Inky black with fast fading brown crema. Aroma is heavy on the coffee with chocolate malty notes. Taste is roughly as expected, but thin and bitter. Not sure what all the hype is about. In any case, itís not worth $13/22oz

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2009 Bottle. Near black color and a brown head. Aroma of citrus like hops at first, when the beer gets warmer coffee, roasted malt, toasted bread and dark chocolate aromas dominate the smell. Tastes of coffee, toasted bread, liquorice, bitter chocolate/cocoa, dried fruit, some sourness and bitter hops. Dry and bitter finish. Very nice stout.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2007 Poured from a bomber. Pours black with a nice creamy tan head. Aroma of what else, coffee. Flavors of bitter coffee and malt. I canít believe im saying this, but is could be slightly sweeter,

Bottle. Pours a dark black color that leave a nice dark brown head on top. This beer pours absolutely amazing. Aroma is coffee, roasted malts and barley, citrus hops, chocolate, oats, and caramel. Flavor is rich in coffee and chocolate. Hints of the citrus hops come in the flavor profile but not nearly as noticeable as they are in the aroma of the beer. The beer is absolutely wonderful on the palate being very creamy and being bittersweet. The beer finishes with a nice semi-dry finish. This is an amazing beer!

Bomber from madsberg - thanks Mads! Best by is torn up a bit, but an "07" is visible. A stunning pour - jet black with a huge brown head, black cherry colors right at the edges. The head disintegrates, leaving a thick film of brown with no lace. A bold nose - initially citrus hoppy, but as it warms a bit the bouquet springs forward - dark chocolate and smooth black coffee, lightly roasted malts. The mouthfeel is very firm, one of the best bodies Iíve ever experienced. I wish I were more eloquent - firm and full, but not oily or creamy. Like a dense bitter chocolate cake or something. Solid espresso flavors, mildly bitter, with some bittersweet chocolate and just a hint of citrus. Dry roasty coffee finish, some burnt chocolate and prune. Simply amazing!

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2007 This is my new favorite.. It was recommended by Dave at Euology Bar and Philly and I have to say, he was dead on. Midnight black color with a light crema head similar to espresso. Strong aroma of coffee and bittersweet chocoate. Rich flavor of coffee that shows more chocolate notes as the beer warms up. Great bitter finish.. Had this beer again at a tasting last month and it paired GREAT with a milk chocolate bar that I brought with me. Add this at the end of a meal with a rich chocolate tort or a slice of cheesecake and you will not be disappointed.. Recently found a few bottles at State LIne Liquors in Elkton MD.. $12.99 a 750 ML but well worth it

Bottle sampled. Pours motor oil black with a thick beigh head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, and notes of nutty dryness. Rich and smooth flavor of coffee/espresso, dark chocolate, and roasty malts with a lasting bitterness finish.
