Absolutely fantastic. A must try for and stout lover. Perfect pour, smell, body, taste. I love coffee and stouts but very rarely love them together. To me this is the perfect mix of the two. The coffee is not overdone as is so often the case. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MacBoost (1280) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - SEP 6, 2014
750ml bottle chugged by myself. Pours a very thick used motor oil black with a very small head. Aromas of of chocolate and coffee with a heavy dose of roasted malts. Taste is semi sweet and lightly bitter. Flavors of coffee grounds, chocolate bar. Low carb. Very chuggable. Finishes on a note of fun and drunken tomfoolery. Great quick buzz.

Tasted at Jason’s anti-Hombrew-Club gathering, thanks for sharing Dan! It poured an opaque black colour, like used motor oil, with everlasting brown foam and lace. Excellent Imperial Stout characteristics: malty, bready, toasty, roasty enhanced by Sump-roasted Colombian coffee beans which enhanced the nutty, chocolatey, black cherry and plum-like tartness, and red wine grape tannins. Big but balanced. Full-bodied with low carbonation, well-rounded chewy mouthfeel, with lingering bittersweet complex aftertastes. Mesmerizingly delicious, every bit as good as everyone claimed, one of those rare times when something truly lives up to its hype. This beer is a sublime combination of all the best aspects of coffee with all the best aspects of beer. I take that back, even if you dislike coffee and beer, I bet you’d enjoy this experience. CRAZY GOOD.

This beer here, this beer I had @ the Grand Tasting... Compliments of phaleslu of course.
I enter it now as a bit of a mile marker for Missouri bumping it’s self into #4 in my most rated states list. Time to move down to #5 Michigan!

Pours pretty darn black with a very small head.

The aroma is very coffee forward with loads of dark chocolate. Sweet but still restrained, roasty and aromatic.

The flavor is very big, chocolaty with lots & lots of coffe. The beer is plenty sweet, but well balanced by a nice bitterness throughout. It does suffer mildly from the coffe stout/bell pepper thing, but not nearly as badly as many others... plus that sorta thing doesn’t really bug me that bad. Roasty, coffee forward, & delightful.

brokensail (10961) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle @ RBSG 2014 Grand Tasting. Black pour with a finger of khaki foam. Tons of coffee, roasted malt, and cocoa powder. Nice spiciness to the coffee. A touch of vanilla and hazelnut. Slight blueberry. Flavor has a good earthiness to it and tons of spicy, nutty coffee. Hints of dried dark fruit, lots of roast, and a fair amount of dark chocolate. Nice beer.
