Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - OCT 17, 2007
Bottle from kmweaver and shared with the KC Crew at theisti’s tasting 10/12. Pours jet black with a thin creamy mocha head; a beautiful stout. Big coffee on the nose with lesser notes of chocolate and roasted malt. Medium-bodied and slick with a dry, roasted finish. The flavor follows the nose with solid fresh coffee, chocolate, roasted malt and a dry, mildly bitter hop finish. This is a remarkably well-made and well-balanced coffee stout. After a few run-ins with examples of the style that taste like 2-day-old, soggy Maxwell House grounds, this beer, along with Blind Tigers Java Porter have opened my eyes to how good they CAN be. Thanks again for sending this one, Ken!

biggcb (464) - Harleysville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2007
Bottle. Pours a very dense, almost syrupy & oil like jet black with a generous beige head. Lots of coffee and roasted malts in the aroma, with some dark chocolate notes. Flavor, as expected, was heavy on the coffee/espresso, roasted malts with an inkling of some bitterness. somewhat on the sweet side. Very smooth and very easy to drink.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - OCT 15, 2007
bottle acquired in trade. pours black with a creamy cocoa colored head. aroma of chocolate, dark roasted malts, coffee and bitterness possibly from the hops? flavor is the aroma. bitter like chicory w/o the aspirin dryness in the back of the throat. aftertaste of really nice coffee sticks around for a while. super creamy oatmeal texture. lacks depth and is kinda one dimensional....but so is a cup of coffee...

ehhdayton (1188) - USA - OCT 15, 2007
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 (1500) - 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.

LeopoldStoch (201) - Green, Ohio, USA - OCT 14, 2007
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!
