Sorry, I forgot who sent me this one, but thanks! Pours black, very thick looking. Thin, creamy, brown head that fades and leaves a bit of lace. Smells like black coffee. Tastes like chocolate coffee. Dark and toasty with sweetness all around. It looks thick but it doesn’t drink too thick. I would say full bodied and it coats the mouth. SUbdued carbonation. It’s 10:53am, that’s still breakfast time right?

Black bodied with a thin ring of tan colored carbonation. Chocolate malt nose. Flavors include roasted malt, and a lot of bitterness. Very creamy. Finish is also quite bitter and long.

Pours a deep silky black body with a huge darker brown froth. Big aroma with notes of smooth dark chocolate, hazelnut coffee, and some subtle citrus notes. Flavors are smooth and silky dark chocolate roast with some milk chocolate notes, vanilla and hazelnut coffee.

Huge one inch, almost brown, head Darkest I’ve ever seen. Big aroma -toasted, dark chocolate, strong, bitter coffee. Unfortunately, the aroma and appearance did not live up to the taste of this beer. To be honest I was a little disappointed. Couldn’t taste much oatmeal until it realy warmed up. Was quite dry. It was OK, but I obviously didn’t like it as much as most other reviewers. I have another bottle, which I re-rate in a couple of weeks.

Another one courtesy of Shigadeyo. Pours black with a large tan head. Beautiful pour. Aromas of cocoa, boozy ripened fruits, coffee. Flavor is rich coffee, malts, bitter chocolates, hints of smoke and roast. Very smooth and creamy to the palate. Thanks again Craig.

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2008
Opaque and black in color with a thick head that fell away. There were scents of roased coffee beans, dark chocolate and heavy cream. In the mouth it was medium-bodied and showed off the coffee and chocolate. The hops picked up toward the finish which just added to the bitter, black coffee feeling. A very nice brew but I have the feeling that some barrel aging would help fill out the midpalate.

This is a perfect beer for the Alaskan winter. Unfortunately it is not available and my supply has just run out. Wonderful though, extremely well balanced and complex when it warms. At cooler temps you really get some acicid burnt coffee notes, and some cocoa. Dark chocolate comes out as it warms along with some very light spicy bourbon notes. Has a rich and chewy mouthfeel and really takes over the whole palate. Finishes with that bitter coffee roastiness and a tad of vanilla extract. Tasty

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2009 Bottle. Aroma as good as it can get, hence the 10. Strong notes of typical stout aromas, coffee, chocolate, dark malts, lightly citrusy hop presence, but what puts this over the top is a luscious presence of rich, sweet alcohol meshing, blending, and supporting the other aromas. The flavor sort of falls back a bit. The same notes are there, but the alcohol seems to just sit there for me without adding and blending, leading to some sips tasting really, really good, other sips feeling a little light on flavor and heavy on alcohol. Palate also fluctuates from this odd alcohol presence, sometimes feeling weak, but by the end of the beer feels nothing other than rich and silky smooth. From the aroma, I was expecting a no-question Top 50 brew, but in the mouth I still had some questions. 10-5-7-4-14/4.0

Rerate after having consumed many bottles, too lazy to say much, but there are many coffee beers and many stouts/impy stouts I prefer to this and it just doesn’t get the job done in comparison for me.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 17, 2008
66 cl bottle courtesy jerc, bottled on 16 01 2007. Very thick and viscous looking opaque dark brown with a thin but lively creamy brown foam. Huge chocolate, roasty coffee, cream, and caramel aroma. Dark roasted coffee, chocolate, light citrus, and caramel flavours with a vinous, fruity, acidic, and roasty bitter finish. Full bodied, chewy, soft, and lightly warming mouthfeel. Not overly complex, but a good, rich, straightforward coffee stout that drinks nicely on this cold winter night.

shadey (1927) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 16, 2008
Bottle acquired in trade. Relatively fresh bottle. Poured an oily black with a head of only tiny tan swirls. The mild but stiff coffee aroma is well done; not too harsh. The flavor is just as good. After seeing the ratings, I expected huge and in-your-face monster. This is neither. This is smooth, reserved, well-balanced and very easy to drink. A very nice coffee beer. The body is smooth with just a bite o sharp carbonation.
