Bottle. 8.5 oz. Split with Sean and Dad on the night after Christmas. Pours a deep, dark brown, nearly black, with a minimal amber head. Aroma of freshly brewed coffee, cream, brown sugar, chocolate, and some nice dry hops in the back. Full bodied with a rich, chewy, slightly bitter palate. The mouthfeel is literally like chocolate mousse. The alcohol is hidden incredibly well; only a sublte trace of it in the warmth of the finish. Excellent stout. I love this brewery and their boundary-pushing big beers.

Pure black color with a tiny nutcolored ring that sticks to the edge of the glass, looks good Aroma is just super, strong chocolate, roasty malt. Taste is, for me, a bit too sweet. It has a very good taste of coffee with some chocolate and herbs, but IMO it would be better if it wasn’t so sweet. I’ll save the next one for a year or two, maybe the age will do it good. Still an awesome beer though. Oh, who am I kidding? I love it, just hope the sweetness will dissappear!

This was my chosen beer for celebrating five years on Ratebeer 06.12-2005-06.12.2010. The 250ml bottle that comes in a box was bought at Vinmonopolet Sentrum, Tromsø. The pour reveals a jet black body with light brown patches on the surface. Aromatic dark fruits to the nose conjoined by earthy malts and bitter liquorice. Rich and likable taste of dark fruits, strawberries and blackcurrant sustained by coffee malts and liquorice. Long-lived aftertaste with tingling alcohol on the swallow. Toddi impression. Well bodied and in fact moreish. Good brew, if not quite up there, yet. A few bottles are left for further development in the cellar (celebrating at home in Tromsø,06.12.10).

This beer is hot -- but not necessarily in a good way. Alcohol warmth and coffee on the nose is quite nice and the taste is smooth for the strength. A bit too much bacon smoke on this beer for me.

wow, what happened here? this thing needs like, at least 2 years on it. the smell is very artificial, and so is the taste. the taste is ok, there is something there, but its not quite together. there is a huge cloying sweetness that tastes like artificial coffee favored syrup. i really hope this one gets better in a couple years. tastes like an iced version of a southern tier stout with extra flavor thrown in.

Bottle 25cl. Pours thick black with a thin offwhite head. Lots of coffee, chocolate and sweetness in the aroma together with alcohol. Creamy texture. Coffee, alcohol, brown sugar and hints of malt.

Bottle from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours very black with a fizzy tan head. Smells like coffee. Strong, but not espresso. Full bodied. Flavor is strongly coffee - even espresso - but there’s a sweet component. A dark sweet component. Treacle? Not bitter, except for coffee bitter. Very nice stuff.

8.5oz bottle thanks to Nick3 on BA. Pours just about black with a small light tan head. The aroma is coffee, sugar, roast, and chocolate, with booziness evident. The flavor is great. Very sweet, but a great sipper. Big coffee notes with table sugar, caramel, spices, and chocolate. Medium-full bodied and slick on the mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Really nice stuff for what it is, balanced if intense. A good dessert beer, like a fine port. Very complex.

Sweet dark malt and alcohol in the aroma. Some coffee and burnt sugar aromas. Pitch black with small head. Sweet and creamy. The cofee and the sugar work well in this beer. It is on the sweet side, but it reminds me of an espresso with a full pack of raw sugar. Even though the coffee is very evident it is not overwhelming. The aftertaste is lingering toasty sweetness. Delicious beer and surprisingly easy drinking considering its strength.
