italianjohn (2288) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Black pour nice tan head with light sticky lacing .... Aroma of coffee and not as sweet as regular abduction which is a bonus, roasted malts and caramel malts with some dark fruits .... Taste is of bitter roasted coffee, chocolate, dark fruits and some sweet lactose .... Has a bitter bite to it .... Mouthfeel is slick and oily with a lingering roasted coffee finish ... Nice fresh roasted coffee qualities, abv hidden well and has a softness to it

Dr_MedievAle (153) - Alabama, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Dark roasted coffee on the nose--not much else. Black with cinnamon-colored head. Tastes of freshly brewed coffee--hey, who’d have guessed? The coffee flavor itself is more chocolatey (again, obviously) than berry/fruity like, but it is very bitter. Finishes harsh and bitter, with lingering aftertaste of...coffee.

TheJester (1793) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 3, 2014
650 mL bottle. Love their names and labels. Not much head. Has coffee, vanilla, and roast in the nose, but it doesn’t smell huge. The flavour is pretty well balanced up front, with coffee and vanilla, and caramel sweetness balancing the mild roast and booze. Needs a little more roast, actually. Finishes quickly. None of the flavours overwhelm the others. Nice, but not great.

Barnoloid (116) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2014
This is a really well done Coffee Imperial Stout. There is an acrid, heavily roasted note that is reminiscent of a fresh pot being made in a Mr Coffee machine. Maybe not as bold and refined as others in its’ field, this still holds up exceptionally well. Clocks in at over 10% but goes down almost too well, with a medium-full body. So not as syrupy or thick as you might imagine.

daje (2043) - NORWAY - APR 30, 2014
Aroma of roasted malt, wood, whiskey, vanilla, dark chocolate. Strong alcoholic whiskey taste with roasted malt and chocolate, fruity finish, with a robust roast and wood aftertaste. Beats the Danish Red Wine edition.

JBPortland (656) - Portland, Maine, USA - APR 6, 2014
22oz bottle pours dark brown-black with small head. Nose is old wet coffee grounds and burnt roasty malt. Taste is roasty stale coffee, earthy dark coffee beans, some milk chocolate, subtle vanilla, nice smooth palate. There is a strange vegetal note mid way through the taste but it finishes with pretty good earthy roast coffee, creamer, and mocha notes. Something just a bit off here.

Lukaduke (2044) - Portland, Maine, USA - APR 6, 2014
Bottle shared by JBPortland ! Pours a deep umber color with a finger of khaki foam. The nose ebbs and flows with sweet chocolate sauce, creamy coffee and boozy abrasiveness. Flavors roll along with layers of chocolate sauce, green coffee, vanilla creme... but there is something a touch artificial about it that Im not completely digging.
