strattonspeaks (113) - Springfield, Missouri, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Syrupy, motor oil pour. Thin, dark tan head. Blunted chocolate aroma. Ash. Sweet and roasty. Whisps of chocolate, caramel, a smoke. Buried dark fruit with a pleasant alcohol bite. Rich and slick. Top notch.

CacheManyHose (331) - HONG KONG - APR 24, 2015
Double Craftissimo day. Watery opaque cola-black, thin tan head. Smells of lots and lots of coffee, deeply bitter to the point of being minty, chocolate, florals, a tiny bit of anise and soy sauce, spicy grassy herb. Taste is burnt coffee, bitter, spiced and a bit sharp/salty. Body is bitter, acidic, a little sharp and flat. Really like how much bitterness and coffee this has - every aspect of it is bold - but a bit sharp.

HKdIPA (388) - HONG KONG - APR 24, 2015
Bottle from Craftissimo at home. Double Craftissimo day. Thick black pour, minimal dark tan head. Aroma is big black coffee with burnt sugar and leather. Nice. Taste is a bit salty, slightly, followed by deep and acidic coffee bitterness. Very big and very boozy. Lingering tart coffee - like the finish of a really acidic espresso. Big coffee stout but in a different type of coffee way. Brighter and more acidic. Really good.

swampwater (39) - Preston, Lancashire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2015
Day 19 of Julepakkekalender from Mikkeller. Bottled.

Aroma: Dark chocolate. Ginger. Slight roast coffee beans. Caramel.
Appearance: Pours a tar colour, with an almost non-existent caramel head.
Taste: Treacle, with a bitter hit of coffee.
Palate: Sweet upfront, with a big hit of bitterness. Very oily mouthfeel. Full body. Barely any carbonation.
Overall: Not my kind of thing at all. Very sickly sweet, with a big bitter kick to it. I’m a fan of blonde ales, and this hasn’t convinced me to change that any time soon.

PapaSkeetSkeet (997) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - APR 3, 2015
Black, glints of warm brown at the edges, 1mm of medium-brown, medium-fine head that reduces to a film. Aroma is cold-pressed coffee syrup, hazelnut, brown sugar, candy, touch of pear and chili. Body is thick-medium-thick, syrupy, somewhat oily, light carbonation, medium-light burn. Flavor is huge hazelnut sugar syrup, butterscotch, cold-pressed coffee, some sap and considerable candy. Delicious!!!!

Lore (1362) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 3, 2015
deep dark brown, almost black colour, 1 inch of creamy and quite stable brown head; aroma of roasted coffee, some dark chocolate, lightly smoked wood, dried plum, hints of herbal liqueur and alcoholic notes; taste of strongly roasted coffee, woody notes, herbal liqueur, dried plum, hints of vanilla, and spicy alcohol in the aftertaste; excellent imperial stout!
