22 Oz Bottle via footy. Luxurious soft, cottony cream flows from the glass, backed with bourbon soaked fruits of yellow plains. Fresh coffee roast, dappled with light barbecue and nibblings of tobacco. Rich and right there, but not out of control. An extremely decent coffee stout nose, detailed and inviting. Pours the color of ink, with a teak fringe and fast fading rim of espresso love. Flavor is a well built, yet quickly moving dry stout. Thereís the palpable sea beans, bright saltine cracker, and clam juice intertwining with toffees, coffee-tinted chocolate and long roastiness. A real impression of dryness throughout, but not acidity, bitterness or harshness. No detectable alcohol. Some interesting yeast products, with some bites of ester that mingle with the fruitiness of the coffee and play off the salty, grain-earth dryness. A long draw sup of detectable minty hops mingle with a glass of sherry. If anything, phenomenal brewing. Surprisingly not overly bold, in my opinion. Tending towards a more restrained, mature presentation of a well integrated oatmeal coffee stout. Thanks Rudy!

Pours like thick motor oil. Nice thick tan head. Nice velvety mouthfeel. Taste of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malt. Was expecting a let down from the hype, but it came through.

Super chocolate stout! Rich, creamy, head pours over a very dark body. Intense flavors of chocolate and some coffee. Very smooth stout. Wow. Lived up to its Internet reputation.

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.

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - NOV 10, 2007
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.

Arayaga2 (1811) - portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 9, 2007
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!
