Poured from the bottle from tavour. We’re on vacation and all the hotel room has is Styrofoam cups which makes this beer poor and appear like hot cocoa. However while the beer has notes of sweet chocolate there is a definite coffee flavor as well. Overall very good despite the strange situation I find myself in.

Draught, guest ale served in a tulip glass at Cafe Fiasco. Filmy fawn-coloured head. Dotted spots on the glass. Deep devil-black body. Rich roasted black malty nose with liquorice to the fore. Blended taste of sweet chocolate and roasted, almost burnt coffee grounds. Prolonged finish. Medium bodied, smooth on the swallow. Tasty (Oslo 11.12.2015).

BelgianBeerGal (3579) - Panama City, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2015
Can from the Grapevine in Pocatello. Pours a mahogany color with a nice bubbly, brown head. The aroma seemed to have a touch of something like cinnamon spice in addition to the light coffee notes. Gentle, balanced flavor that has enough malt to keep the coffee in check. Nice.

ben4321 (5250) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 14, 2015
Location: 12 oz can from Winooski Beverage, 8/14/15

Aroma: The aroma is heavy roast and coffee, some burnt notes, and a bit of green vegetable
Appearance: It pours a dark brown-black color with a thin light brown head and spotty lace
Flavor: It tastes of burnt coffee, that green vegetable, and a dry coffee bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, leaning lighter, average-to-lively carbonation, decently dry finish
Overall Impression: This is a pretty good espresso stout. Nice roasted coffee flavor. Good balance between the light sweetness and the slightly higher bitterness. Works as an easy drinking canned stout for those who want a bit more roast in their camping/pool beer drinking. Doesn’t have to be overcast of drink this on a sunnier day too.

Growler from Albertsons. Pours out black / brown with small silky head. Coffee is first element in the aroma, some burnt toast as well. Coffee than takes over the flavor. Medium weight body, slick and creamy.
