JoeMcPhee (8551) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2007
22 oz bottle. BB 12-2007. Deep black beer with a thick dark brown head. Aroma is loaded with coffee. Slightly vegetal character to the nose that isnít entirely pleasant. There is a load of coffeeish character and a heavy oaty richness. There is also a very strong roastiness with a bit of heavy smokiness. The flavour is very roasty with a lot of heavy coffee flavour. As it warms the malts appear more complex with a bit of plum and chewy sweetness. Some dark malts and a bit of toast. Itís a tasty beer, but itís not the greatest coffee beer Iíve had.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 27, 2007
Bottle with Mes & tashi at Casparís Christmas Cracker 2007. Many thanks to Mes for suggesting I pick up a bottle of this at GBBF 07. Itís special stuff. Pours a very dark brown. Massive aroma of coffee and dark, dark chocolate. Equally powerful flavour of chocolate, smoke and roasted malt. Smooth in the extreme, itís an utter pleasure to drink.

jdjuice (338) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - DEC 26, 2007
Drank on Christmas morning. Pours thick and opaque with really nice head. Strong caramel and roastiness on the nose. Very strong coffee, chocolate and roastiness. Not too bitter, which I like. However, not as smooth as I would have preferred.

unclemattie (4262) - Georgia, USA - DEC 25, 2007
22oz bottle. Super Black. Dark brown head. Pours thick and creamy, just like motor oil. Aroma of a sweet oatmeal stout. Rich roasted malt smell with coffee, chocolate and licorice aromas as well. Flavor is a smooth malt. Finishes with big coffee flavor and a bit of pine. Very sharp bitterness left behind to balance the coffee bean bitterness. Very well balanced, thick and chewy. Just the way a Stout should be. Cheers. Merry Christmas!!

CelticBrew (854) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - DEC 24, 2007
Pours pitch black forming nice foamy medium black head. Aroma of roasted malted oats, coffeeís, dark/burnt toffeeís, with a nice surprise of hops. I love Mikkellerís Stateside, so Iím looking forward to this lovely beer! Flavour is of smooth, coffee like tones with a particular burnt oat ending. The hops and malts balance the character so that this beer is exceptionally drinkable. I would love to try this brew on tap, once again our Denmark friends bring us an exceptional beer!

franksnbeans (265) - Columbus, Maryland, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Pours black as oil with a large chocolate milk head that dies slow. MMM smells of roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate and cocoa. Tastes of the coffee, dark chocolate malt, oatmeal and finishes with ground coffee and a hop bite. Full and delicious in the mouth. A sipper but I can sip on multiples of this coffee stout anyday. A must try and hits a soft spot I have for these stouts

rauchbier (3634) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2007
Bottle, at Nacht van de Grote Dorst, March 2006. Courtesy of The Danes. Jet black, thin but lasting beige head and moderate condition. Initial hops then an intense explosion of roasted barley and sweet liquorice in the nose, Full and liquorice sweet in the mouth with good balance of roasted bitterness, long lingering oily liqorice, coffee beans and roasted barley in the finish.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - DEC 21, 2007
Bottle via trade with Jvittro4187. Pitch black pour with a frothy, lighter tan head. Big aromas of vanilla, chocolate, dark fruits and coffee. The flavor is dominated by coffee. It;s even bitter like coffee. Thereís a good bit of roasted malts and some chocolate as well. Bitter coffee aftertaste that smells like spent coffee grounds. Man, oh man, this is nice!

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 19, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2009 Pours an ultra-deep, dark mahogany with a virtually black center. A large, spongy, coffee colored head protrudes from the surface and shows good retention. Random shards of sheet-like lacing decorates the glass well. The aroma shows freshly brewed Columbian coffee with cream, bitter bakerís chocolate, anise, and a dark, fruity background. The flavor starts out with sweet chocolate malt profile up front, moving quickly to bitter bakerís chocolate, and ending with creamed coffee. The body is big, but overly carbonated and a bit too dry and roasted. Iíd prefer a little additional sweetness in this style. Overall, a very good beer, but drastically overpriced. There are multiple coffee stouts out there that beat this one, especially for the price tag.
