faroeviking (10290) - FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 21, 2007
Bottle at a beer gathering in Birkerød. Nice deep dark brown colour with darkish brown creamy long lasting head leaving a very good lacing. Strong aroma of coffee, chocolate and good roasted malts. Flavour of well roasted malts, good chocolate, bitter dark chocolate, smoky. Long bitter, roasty coffee finish.

MoritzF (8464) - Bochum, GERMANY - FEB 18, 2007
(sample at the Düsseldorf RB gathering) Black as tar coloured with a dark brown foamy head. Roast-malty aroma with strong notes of coffee and dark chocolate. Roast-bitter flavour, medium to full bodied with a pleasant, smooth carbonation. Strong roast-malty aroma with the impression of coffee-beans, but unfortunately not much more; dry, moderately bitter, roast-malty finish with loads of coffee notes. Very interesting and highly quaffable but also not that complex brew.

bierkoning (10159) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - FEB 18, 2007
Bottle from Olbutikken. Opague, dark brown head. Licorice and pineapple in the aroma. Licorice in the malty sweet flavor. Full bodied. Pleasant roast character. Coffee, pineapple and cacao. Abundant with flavors and aromas and not without character and complexity.

From a 22oz Bottle. Opaque, murky black chocolate pour with a creamy layer of quickly dissipating lightly roasted tan head. Loads of silky roasted coffee in the aroma that blends eloquently with shavings of dry baker’s chocolate and toasted walnuts. Great name, I want my morning cup of coffee to smell like this. Nice aromatic balance between the chocolate, roast coffee, nutty, and caramel tones. Each layer is carefully layered to prevent any single aspect from becoming too dominant. Medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel. Lots of dry chocolate and medium roast coffee initially invade my welcoming palate. Some interesting coconut husk characters seem to be working a bit of a lighter, softer dimension onto the palate without giving up any of the bitter roast character. A bit of toasted hazelnut lingers on the palate in the final smack along with more coffee beans. I like how the edginess of the roast flavors is kept in check on the palate by the softness of the subtle toasted oatmeal in the mouthfeel. Thanks, Jake!

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - FEB 11, 2007
Bomber courtesy after4ever. Thanks again! Pours black with an orange-brown head. Coffee and chocolate nose, with more in the taste, but the finish arrives too soon and seems too dry, if that’s possible. There is a burnt toast, espresso, sour, salty quality builds on the tongue as I finish my glass.

motelpogo (6474) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 11, 2007
gahl06, bottled. thick black with a persistent beige head. hugely burnt aroma, traces of whipped cream and dried apricots. all sorts of burnt flavours - bitter chocolate, espresso doppio, bbq marinade. some pleasant lactic sourness and deeply bitter finish that i could taste for days

Bomber, courtesy Maria--thank you! I’ve been aching to try this beer for quite a while. Big dark black pour with a thick, creamy, moussy, light tan head. Enormous coffee aroma--seriously overpowering. We served it with dessert tonight and it still seems pretty crazy. Bold attack, with a medium-high body and intense coffee flavors. Puckery astringent dry finish after the onrush of coffee flavor. This is an interesting beer, but let it never be said that Americans have cornered the market on insanely bulked-up flavors. This one’s a great one for standing out from a crowd of coffee-rich stouts, but it strikes me as a little too far around the bend to really be drinkable in a pleasurable way--more of a curiosity.

Fruergaard (3) - DENMARK - JAN 29, 2007 does not count
Sligthly intimidating roasted coffee aroma, but very satisfying aftertaste. Solid stout with a not too sweet taste experiece.

lagomswedish (213) - Umeå, SWEDEN - JAN 22, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2007 Bottle from Ölbutikken in Copenhagen. Pours a thick, inky black with rich chocolate head. Aroma of roasted malt and expresso coffee, which is really what this wonderful stout is all about. Lots of expresso coffe bean in the flavour, which leaves an extremely bitter, burnt smoke and dry, dusty aftertaste. Not as sweet and gentle as, say, the Oak Aged Yeti, but a more menacing stout that tastes like one of those tiny cups of explosive coffee you get in an Italian cafe - with 7.5% of alcohol cleverly and quietly slipped in to it.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 22, 2007
Thanks Santa! Dark brownish black pour with a frothy brown head; turning into a creamy tan ring. Roasty oatmeal stout aroma with possibly slight hops. Nice full flavored roasty coffee, brown sugared oatmeal, 80% omanhene chocolate (made with cocoa liquor),. Full and thick with flavor. Great drink. Similar to the Founders Breakfast Stout, but a bit more "real" and fuller to me.
