jmgreenuk (4600) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle at the "Dean is a cheap bastard tasting cos he let Rene buy a beer from the shop and then asked to taste it for the tick" tasting. Poured a clear dark brown with a thin whispy tan head. The aroma is dry earthy mineral zesty citrus aspirin. The flavour is moderate bitter with a rich liqouruce bitter alcoholic palate. Full bodied with soft carbonation.

Bottle shared by ericteusink. Lots of vanilla and a bit of bourbon sweetness. Little bit of coffee left here. Smooth and tasty with a seroius roasted malt and bittersweet chocolate profile.

popery (1433) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 13, 2014
The beer is black with dark maroon-ish brown edges. Small head, beige. The vanilla comes through clearly in the aroma. The coffee is more muddled than expected. It seems like a nice fruity coffee note, but it blends in quite a bit with the stout flavors. Lots of chocolate with a sweet caramel backbone. Very mildly fruity. Similar experience on the taste. Its fairly sweet, though certainly not overwhelmingly so relative to other stouts of a similar strength. Moderate acidity. More roast than I picked up from the aroma. A bit more fruity dark malt flavor. Lots of caramel, a bit much for me mostly because it crowds out the chocolate some. Fruity, acidic coffee. Low-ish carbonation. Smooth, full mouthfeel. Good but not great coffee stout.

MacBoost (1323) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - AUG 6, 2014
Bootle from trade. Pours a deep brown almost black with a scant tan head. Aromas of creamy vanilla coffee with dark fruits. Taste is lightly bitter and sweet. Flavors of iced coffee with vanilla flavor and whip cream. Not cloying, but still pretty sweet. Alcohol is well masked. Some dark fruit/twang, light tobacco. Finishes sweet and creamy. Pretty nice.

Countbeer (4518) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle: Batch 248/250/252: Thanks Jdb288: Served in a Chouffe glass: Beautiful creamy beige foamy head on top of a deep dark brown to black colored beer. Aroma has some coffee notes (duh), roast, coffee roast, oatmeal roast, some wood roast, bay leaf roast... Very nice! Flavours of roast, coffee, bitters, coffee beans, coffee roast, malt and oat roast, some raisin, prunes and brown sugars, some herbal roast and bay leaf. Aftertaste is a mix of coffee, coffee sweets, coffee roast, light malt and malt roast with a bitter raisin edge. Low carbo, light creamy mouthfeel, medium to fuller bodied and a light spiced light creamy light sticky texture. For 10.5%ABV this is quite the drinker. Somewhat crisp and easy but very tasty. Nice!

brokensail (11085) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle @ RBSG 2014 Grand Tasting. Black in color with a khaki head. Nose of coffee, mint leaves, and chocolate. Decent amount of vanilla and lots of cocoa powder. Of course, some roasted malts. Flavor has a nice bitterness to it, but fair amount of sweet vanilla and chocolate. Some dark fruits, plenty of roast, and bitter cocoa powder. Not bad.
