StefanSD (2218) - Lakeside, California, USA - APR 25, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2008 650 ml bottle from kmweaver. Pours and opaque black color with a big tan head. The aroma is rich with molasses, chocolate, coffee and dates. The flavor showcases all of the elements, with a big emphasis on dark chocolate and mocha. The hops are well integrated and effective in a supporting role. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy--in fact I would say that the palate is this beers primary appeal, they got it right. The finish is long and dry with lingering dark biter chocolate. Overall: One of the greats and for a good reason, this is remarkable stuff.

Smagt 22/4 2008 hjemme. Tak Mikkel, jeg havde ikke smagt den igen ellers. Intens duft af kaffe, kulsort i glasset, tyk i konsistens og kraftig i smag. Den er rigtig vellykket.

Black with a big tan head. Aroma was strong coffee and roasted malts. Similar flavor with a touch of hops and caramel, caramel, a bit of earth. Finished bitter, but not overly coffee. Very nice.

baggio (322) - norrtälje, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2008
Bottle at Pikkulintu / Helsinki. Pours a black brownish color with a small beige head. Aroma of coffee, oatmeal and vanilla. Taste of brown sugar, espresso, roasted malts and chocolate. Palate is smooth with a good bitterness at the end. A damn fine imperial stout but way overrated imho.

clingman71 (297) - Centerville, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2008
Bottle. Let me begin by saying that I had extremely high expectations for this beer due to A. The $$$$$ and B. the high review scores. It poured almost black with a nice tan head. Aroma strong of roasted malts and coffee. Flavor much the same as aroma, a little more of a dry roastiness than the creaminess that I taste in many oatmeal stouts. Not a bad beer, but seriously overhyped. It seems as though everyone wants to see some European beers come out that rival the best of the American craft super-brews(IIPAs, BWs, & RISs, etc.), but I haven’t had anything beyond a few assorted Belgians(and these are in distinctly Belgian styles and are sort of apples to oranges compared to tAmerican beers) that touch the American brews. They are, however, headed in the right direction. This is a good thing as any true beer lover should wish for advancement of beers and brewering all over the world, spreading the joy so to speak.

Thanks to Drew for picking up a bottle of this for me a few months ago. I’ve just now gotten around to giving it a try in celebration of rating 775. I’m a little disappointed to find this is not a Top 50 beer. Instead it is simply a solid coffee stout with some buzz. At the cost of a bomber I’m not likely to pick up another one unless it is for trade.

Aroma / Appearance - The black oily body was just as I expected a top flight stout to look. The dark tan head lingered for a while before deciding to subside. Chocolate, black coffee, anise and peanut butter mud pie intermingled in a solid but not earth shattering combination. I was expecting just a little but more complexity but could not find it.

Flavor / Palate - Black coffee and plum tickle the tongue before the watery mouthfeel hits the throat. It’s not so thin as to be lifeless but did not meet my expectations. The finish reminds me of a cheap breakfast of slightly overcooked toast, dry plain oatmeal and coffee made from beans which have been burned. While it is a solid cohesive beer I was not blown away. Still your mileage may vary so give it a try if you like stouts.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - APR 9, 2008
Bottle courtesy Gillard. Pours black with a one finger lasting tan head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, and oats. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium roasty mouthfeel with a moderate amount of bitterness. Very good.

AmEricanbrew (6237) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - APR 9, 2008
Black with a dark tan head. Lots to smell here; big cocoa and cold, bitter, spent coffee grounds, earthy hay, and boiled cabbage. Medium body and smooth. Taste is mostly roasted malts with sour oatmeal and that spent coffee ground bitterness to finish... Not a bad beer, but really, whats all the fuss about ?? For the inflated price of this one bottle, i can buy a 12 pack of Obsidian Stout, in fact i’d take a bottle of Obsidian over this beer no matter the price. ’nuff said. ( steps off soap box). ;- ) 12127
