coachd (119) - Missouri, USA - MAY 28, 2014
The aroma is very complex; I was ready for that. It takes a few sniffs to get everything that is going on. Smells of oak, bourbon, light raisin, fig. Not as strong of a coffee aroma as one would expect. Dark chocolate undertones in the scent. Expensive dark chocolate, not artificial like in some beers. Some booze, not much. Black in color with a medium tan head. Leaves heavy lacing on the glass. Great looking stout. Taste is pleasant coffee, not overpowering. Hop bitterness comes through after the coffee. Flavor is not nearly as complex as the aroma. Surprisingly watery in texture - I was really expecting a richer palate. I can see why they say it goes well with breakfast. A stronger beer would be too much for the morning. Being that I never drink beer for breakfast, I really have no use for this. The palate is disappointing, it’s very expensive and the flavor doesn’t give you much besides coffee and hops. It’s not bad, but no way should it be 100 points. Perhaps I am biased because I like big, bold, rich stouts, and this is not one of those. For the price and reputation, I was expecting to be blown away. Right off the top of my head, I can think of 5 stouts I like better than this.

Pours black with low tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, vanilla, light muscovado, raisins and figs. Taste is roasty coffee and dark chocolate, light nuts and smoke. Body is medium rich and smooth with soft carbonation.

Kauge (179) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 15, 2014
Bottle from Stockmann in Tallinn (€ 4,20), Oct 2014. Pours black with a thick dark tan head that laces and retains nicely. Wonderful aroma of roasted malts, coffee, bitter chocolate and spicy citrusy hops... more as it warms, accompanying with some booziness. Taste is is roasty and chocolaty sweet at first, but that is quickly buried in the thick and resinous bitterness of Centennial and Cascade. Finishes bitter with returning roastiness, and soothing alcoholic warmth. Soft palate with very little carbonation, and a slick, somewhat oily mouthfeel. Near perfect.

robbienate (113) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 12, 2014
Great classic stout aroma with a bit more coffee than usual. Appearance is just my kind of beer: pitch black with dark-brown foam. Flavor is excellent, again the coffee comes through. Mouthfeel nice and rough (like a good porter). Overall one of the best oat-based stouts I’ve had.

olsvammel (3278) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 12, 2014
On tap at Mikkeller Bar Stockholm. Smell of chocolate. Taste of chocolate, roasted, coffee. Tasty and malty. Would be interesting to try a Beer Geek Break from Lervig and one from Nögne Ö at the same time.

jenhesteer (234) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2014
Pours a pitch and black beer,thick as oil, no white trim at all. Dark beige, fat head, wich sadly diapears. Very coffeeish aroma, but there IS a fume of grassy hops hovering over it, wich gives balance.. The extreme coffeetaste leaves little room for anything else - just the hard and dry taste of a heavy roasted coffee. The finish goes on for eons; after the cold coffee, there is a lash of 80+ chocolate. The coffeelovers new favorite.

Tselloufc88 (152) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2014
Bottle from Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Pitch black, brown foamy head. Aroma of smoked malt, coffee and some chocolate. Alcohol is overpowering, some coffee coming through. Tasty but not as smooth as it could be but still excellent.

Percy0103 (193) - MEXICO - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle, 500ml. A dark beer with a big foamy head. Aroma is of alcohol, coffee and roasted malt. Taste is sweet and has a smoked character. There is some carbonation and astringency. Somewhat dense and oily. Aftertaste reminds me of coffee and alcohol.
