Pours a deep, rich, opaque black with a dense creamy brown head. A complex array of aromas greets the nose with dark chocolate, coffee, oatmeal, and dark fruit. Flavor is slightly more impressive with a the richness of flavors, dark chocoale, roasted coffee, and fruit . The body is full and smooth with a lingering roastedness on the palate.

Heathen (1458) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - OCT 14, 2007
THOUGHTS: A great beer. Maybe not worth the $14.50 I dropped on the bottle, but close. Sweet and bitter. Nice balance. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Appearance dark, opaque black with a huge, foamy, tan head that mostly diminished. The aroma was heavy strong coffe malt, cream and salt. The initial flavor was lightly sweet, moderately bitter and salty, while the finsh was heavily sweet and bitter, and slaty with an average duration. The flavor had some chocolate but was mostly coffee. It’s like a sweetened coffee. Just a little bit of almost soapy hop bitterness that keeps it from being perfect. The medium to full body was oily and syrupy with soft carbonation and a slightly chalky, moderately to heavily astringent finish.

Original bottling acquired from Bager...Thanks Lars! This beer poured a really nice brownish black with a great looking burnt brown head that lasted for just about the entirety of the beer. A decent presence of roasted black coffee in the aroma melded with chocolates and other dark/burnt malts. Flavors area good combination of the chocolate and coffee, but just not as overpowering as I was hoping for in such a highly regarded coffee impy stout. The flavor also not so great presence of unwanted coffee astringency. Overall a little disappointed by something I really wanted to love, but now that it is in the states I have been able to get a few more bottles and will look forward to revisiting it.

Bottle. Black with a lasting brown head. Powerful aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Malt and chocolate in taste together with good bitterness. Better than orange juice for breakfast!

Full bottle. One of the best coffee aromas I have had from a stout. Poured a bit lighter bodied than I expected. Black, near opaque with 3/4 inch of frothy brown head. Nose was HUGE and 2 days later, the bottle here still smells great! Medium bodied and full of robust roasted coffe flavors, sweet chocolates and a bit of nutty dryness and super-dry esspresso roastiness at the finish. Thin, but so easily drinkable at this weight and much more flavor than any beer at this gravity I have ever tasted. Because it isn’t as huge as Founders and Dieu de Ciel, I could see this as a regular beer in my fridge. One of the best beers I have had in a long, long time. Please make more and somehow get these babaies to Chicago!!!!

I had a sample out the bottle at SIB and in my opinion this beer did not stand up to all the hype. Pretty light for a stout and flavor is not over the top. Good summer stout. I think the hype comes from it being somewhat rare.

Bottle; thanks to kleyland and kieferuga for getting and bringing this to me. Poured a dark black with a good sized brown head. Aroma of coffee, nuts, caramel, and bread. Complex flavor; slightly watery palate, but I found that it work. Flavor is just great; dominated by roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee. Light element of floral hops at the end and a milk/oatmeal sweetness. Fine example of the style.
