Zymurgeist2 (1752) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUL 16, 2016
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.

BroadestTom (364) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2016
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.

emusche (177) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 24, 2016
Pours black with a quickly dissipating tan head. Aromas of coffee cake, roast coffee, espresso. Taste is bitter coffee fading to a more mild malty sweetness; faint notes of char and chocolate are also present. Another solid Perennial offering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

b3shine (7965) - Indiana, USA - JUN 23, 2016
Draft to snifter at Perennial. Looks good; a fairly opaque dull black with darker beige head. Smells of loads of coffee and roast up front with notes of dark malt and bitter chocolate in the background. Tastes like it smells with a medium full-bodied mouthfeel that’s fairly bitter from the roast. Good, not great.

JohnnyJ (5354) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 12, 2016
Bottle. Near black pour, with a tan head. Good coffee aroma. Heavy roast, espresso, some dark fruit, mild vanilla, and notes of chocolate. Nice

ippopotamo36 (1584) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 20, 2016
Bottle purchased in Portland and consumed in Serbia. Dark brown/black color, dark brown foam lowering super fast. Nose: coffee brandy, alcohol, zabaione. Mouth: mild coffee start, soft body far from being rich, some frizzy/pepper palate, coffee brandy, sourish (unexpected) finish, ash, cherries. Mmmmm. Maybe a "strange" bottle? Label says bottled Jan 2016 consume within 60 days. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

j12601 (9549) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 29, 2016
On tap at The Hop. Pours a deep black with a thin tan head. Big roast and cocoa on the nose, chocolate and sweet malt and bean paste, soft coffee. Long roast, warm alcohol, chewy. Big alcohol soaked chocolate mousse, faint coffee. Delicious, but a very slow sipper. Lingering bean paste, chocolate, roast and faint and fruit coffee. Big, boozy, beautiful.
