Pours a pitch black color, with a small, dark brown head, soon reduced to a small ring of bubbly lacing. Smells of fudge coated, roasted malts, also containing ground coffee leftovers. Matured, grassy hops create a bitter-chocolate impression, finding its sweet counterpart in molasses and a whiff of rock sugar. Exhibits a very vivid, diversified nose, not solely on the sweet side, but with a promising, intriguing earth supported bitterness. Has a higher carbonation, perfectly preserved by the can, which adds a refreshing first sip, while the beer in general still drinks beautifully smooth. Even its dry, bitter coffee ending leaves enough space on the palate for soothing whipped cream, ensuring a soft, enjoyable mouthfeel. Tastes of toffee accompanied earth, together with a warming scorched malt foundation. Milk chocolate produces a ton of whipped cream, which smoothes the slowly uprising bitterness till the very end, consisting of a blend between grassy, still pungent hops and heated coffee beans. Once the prominent bitterness is established, it becomes a cornerstone of the beers taste profile, revealing a multi-layered coffee, earth, roasty malts and hop richness. Caramel cuts through during the finish, balancing the long lasting bitter aspects of the beer, while ending surprisingly clean, putting the focus back on soothing whipped cream, wrapping up wooden ground coffee. A breathtaking approach of creating a big, bold stout, with a fantastic, balanced depth to it. Almost overpowering the palate at certain stages, as for its extreme taste diversity, the smoothness guarantees a convincing balance throughout. The beer always tends to find an answer for the boundary pushing questions it poses in a fitting, just as extreme counterpart.

Obscure black. Dried fruit nose. Coffee flavour with a hint of cocoa, some sweetness & a silk mouthfeel. A straight drinking RIS with no messing about. Rated by BrewTom

Can, Brewdog Leicester. Black with a beige head. Oily and earthy with peppery, marzipan alcohol. Creamy dark chocolate with berries. Rich coffee with vanilla oak barrel and brown sugar. Some hints of soy sauce with toffee. Boozy, warming, damned good.

Aggiebob (451) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - NOV 19, 2015
Can. It pours a dark oil black with a fluffy tan head. The aroma is dark chocolate, berries, licorice, coffee and vanilla. The flavor is intense with the roasted malts and dark chocolate flavors dominating. The alcohol is present early on but the finish is smooth.

tightslice (601) - Redwood City, California, USA - NOV 17, 2015
Can from Beltramo’s in Menlo Park, CA. Aroma is chocolate fudge brownies. Taste is the same with some very mild bitterness. This is ALMOST, JUST BARELY, MAYBE too sweet. But it’s not. Very smooth.
