jacobwennbom (357) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 6, 2008
Black with big but shortlasting darkbrown head. Fresh hoppy aroma, citric in essence. Further more there is burnt malt and coffee. More than anything taste is of malt burnt to the point of outright bitterness (that lingers to say the least). On a more subtle level there is some sort of x-masish spice and instant coffee-powder. Carbonation is pretty low. The overall problem in my opinion is that the burnt bitterness gets to much space on the palate. Plus that I don’t feel it really has anything elese going for it. Not satisfied.

Smaskifa (136) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2008
0,5 l bottle. Pours a nice thick lasting brown lid, leaves traces all the way down the glass. Aroma of heavy dark choclate and coffee, burnt malt. Nice balanced carbonation, feels tingly in the mouth, but still a rather thick body. Tastes a lot of dark choclate and coffee, well balanced roasted malt gives a nice taste of smoke. Some hoppy bitterness in the finish. Excellent beer. I haven’t tried at breakfast, but it works very well with choclate deserts.

blutt59 (6501) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 4, 2008
bottle, color is dense black brown, starts with a large foamy head that fades to ring, nose is a sweet caramel coffee, flavor is a very smooth bitter espresso with a roasty bitter chocolate and malty finish, slightly metallic

DialSquare (4235) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2008
bottle. jet black pour with a huge thick brown head that slowly dissipated. aroma of coffee, roasted malts and some spice (light cinnamon maybe). flavors of burnt caramel and coffee. sweet malts balance things - but the bitterness is long and even - tough to explain, but somehow different than similar minded stouts I’ve had. the texture is thick and slightly chalky on the finish. If I were a wealthy alcoholic, this would definitely be my drink of choice in the morning. K-8.5

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 4, 2008
Bottle two year aged: Pours a hefty dark black thick with a dark tan head. Aroma is quite complex with sweet malt, coffee, high roasted malt, oats, chocolate. Flavors are the same but very well blended. Extremely smooth mouth feel due to the oats. I’m a fan of the style for sure. They say this goes well with breakfast but I think it IS a breakfast!

BrewCzar (108) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 1, 2008
Bottle pours black with a big brown head. Aroma is distinctly coffee with hints of sweet roasted malts. The taste has a strong coffee/espresso presence with hints of roasted caramel and chocolate malts.

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 31, 2008
pours a dark black with a very thick creamy brown head. Aroma is nice chocolately roast malt. some coffee, and sweet oatmeal tones. hop bitterness pushiing through... Flavour is burnt malt bitterness, dark roast coffee. Nice sharp bitterness in the finish. Obviously I like the hop combined with the dark roast coffee biterness and a creamy oatmeal undertones.

EHopper (620) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 31, 2008
The deep coffee flavor is strongly accented with burnt fruit wood, with all kinds of grains and malts mixed in. I love that there is also a balanced amount of bitters from what I suppose to be a goodly amount of hops. Even a dryish finish. I need to put up a bit of this for when friends are over.

demitriustown (1184) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - AUG 30, 2008
1 pint 0.9 oz bottle: Wonderful thick rich malty aroma at first, some grapefruit hop characteristics poking through, and an oatmeal and coffee note intermingled throughout. Appearance is deep dark black with a thick tan head that lingers. Taste is roasted malts, dark coffee, oats, with a slight hop twang at the end that makes this brew really interesting. In the aftertaste it’s malty on the tongue with a lingering coffee bitterness. Overall, Pretty darn good stuff in my honest opinion. A little pricey but it is a quality beer all around. Cheers!
