Tmoney99 (10462) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 5, 2011
Bottle. Poured reddish black color with an average frothy brown head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid roasted coffee and chocolate malt and earthy hop aroma. Medium to full body with a dry smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted balanced coffee and chocolate flavor with a heavy chocolate bittersweet finish of long duration. This is a standout beer.

500ml capped bottle. Pours a viscous pitch black with a dense tan head on pour, but that dissipates fairly quickly to a loose film of a head and a solid ring around the edge. Blast of coffee, patent malt, licorice, toasted brazilian nuts, and a dank sharp pineyness...smells like I would expect an dbipa would smell. Chewy viscous body, carbonation isn’t super assertive or sharp, but it isn’t flabby or flat either. Semi sweet chocolate and coffee oatmeal stout up front, black patent malt takes over in the mid palate then the pineyness kicks in. Finishes quite bitter with some licorice. Not really cohesive or balanced.

elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - JUN 26, 2011
500ml bottle, unknown date. Served at cellar temperature.

Pours black with a large foamy and rocky brown head that takes forever to settle down and leaves clumpy lacing in its wake.

Aroma is like...well...a heavily-hopped coffee stout. Heaps of premium coffee, chocolate, tons of roasted malts and a bit of smoke playing nicely with piney, grassy, citrusy hops. While there is more hop presence than most other stouts, the coffee still steals the show. Very good to great strength.

Flavor is very tasty premium coffee beans, roasted malts, chocolate up front then moves to a bitter hoppy finish featuring pine, spruce, and citrus. A bit of sweetness with the coffee and hops teaming up for some good bitterness. Some alcohol detected but what’s there is mild.

Mouthfeel is not quite medium, not quite full bodied, somewhat creamy, moderate carbonation.

Man, the hops really mingle nicely with this coffee stout. Would classify well as a Black IPA. Yet another tasty offering in the Beer Geek series and I’m glad to have had the chance to try (even if it was overpriced, even for a Mikkeller offering).

Sampled on 6/25/2011. This stout pours an eclipse black color from a 500ml bottle. Medium sized tan foamy head, nice retention and good lacing. The aroma is chocolate, coffee, hoppy and herbal. Medium bodied stout. The malts are chocolate, coffee, roasted malts and bitter. The hops are herbal and earthy. Decent carbonation. A lot of bitterness in this beer, first from the coffee, then from the roasted malts and then from the hops. There is a touch of sweetness that shows up every once in a while in the taste. This is a very coffee forward stout that’s been aggressively hopped. Yet kind of smooth and well balanced. Nice sipping beer. There is some alcohol presence even at 7.5%. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is bitter.

(bottle - 500 ml) Dark black pour with a thin and lasting tan head. Big hoppy aroma with some mild coffee underneath it. Bitter hops at the start that turns into a very nicely roasted coffee middle, but then goes back to a bitter hop finish. Almost like a very heavily roasted black IPA.

Fin (7276) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2011
Bottle from Bacchanalia, Cambridge, 03.06.11 consumed with friend Trevor 17.06.11 Pours black with a beige head, this is a roasty and hoppy number with pine and citrus flavours combining surprisingly well with the roasty coffee flavours that provide the undercurrent to this beer. Good stuff. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6

On tap at Cask Pub & Kitchen on 7th May 2011. Thick black with pale brown head and sporadic lacing. Sweetish malty aroma then BURST of delectable rich hoppiness and burnt malts. Rich coffee and grassy hoppiness transfer to a superbly intense rich finish that satisfies.

Bottle on sale at A Southern Season. Glad I picked this up. Pours thick black with a thin tan head appearing seconds after the pour but not sticking around in any substantial form for long. Nose is pungent green resiny hops, coffee and chocolate, and pleasant oatmeal/grain notes. This is a black IPA gone wild. Many brewers fail to mix these elements and just end up with a big, extreme beer that doesn’t taste that great, but everything in this beer is well integrated, and the whole transcends the parts. Full palate. Great beer.
