Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours pitch black with a small, well-tanned head. Decent retention. The aroma features loads of coffee and dark chocolate - that means big-time MOCHA! Full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and pillow-soft carbonation. The flavor is bursting-at-the-seams with burnt, acrid coffee accompanied by low-sugar dark chocolate. Finishes carbonic, scorched and deeply roasty. Bold and brash, but beautiful. Thanks to 50belair for sharing this world-class bottle of beer!

Un liquide parfaitement noir et opaque culminé par une tête bien crémeuse, telle la créma. Malheureusement, cette tête n’a tenu qu’un bref instant. Arômes de café noir. Ce café qui réconforte lors des longues soirées d’hiver. Une bouffée de chaleur, de café grillé, de torréfaction, de grains germés. J’ai l’impression d’entrer dans un café français à l’heure du petit déjeuner. Un croissant. Liquide à la densité irréprochable. Texture soyeuse, riche sans pour autant être sucrée, légère. Une bulle microscopique m’est fort plaisante. Saveurs de chocolat noir et de café. Je ne note presque aucune amertume ni dans le café, ni dans cette touche de cacao. Les malts rôtis apportent un support juste et parfaitement équilibré à cette bière dont la grande qualité réside dans son équilibre.

Bottle shared by Keir, thanks! Pours near black with a near brown head that dissipates completely. Aroma has a good amount of coffee with roasted malts and a bit of boozy dark grains. Flavor has bitter coffee and roasted malts with a booze dark grain backbone.

Draught at both Harry’s Hofbrua in Redwood City and Ale Arsenal. Love this beer both times I had it with massive coffee that blends nicely with the base Imperial Stout. So complex and evolving as it warmed. Black with chocolate head.

Aroma coffee, roasty, Appearance black, tan foam, Taste medium sweetness, medium bitterness, Palate medium body, full body, Overall no doubt this is a coffee stout. Full coffee flavor from beginning to end. The alcohol is very well hidden. Definitely a beer that I would suggest to a friend.
