demmbonz (570) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 9, 2014
22oz bottle to bertha snifter. Cola like pour. Super fizzy. No retention. More sweet and fruity than coffee. Bad bottle? Past it’s prime? Something isn’t right.

MrHangover (2656) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 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. Pours a pitch black beer with a small ring of tanned head on top. Aroma of loads of coffee, light caramel and some booze detected. Flavor has loads and loads of coffee, caramel, molasses and has a quite bitter aftertaste. Nicely balanced, very decent.

Bottle shared by Rob and Lisa, thanks for the opportunity. Huge coffee and brown sugary roasted grain goodness. The sweetness compliments the coffee flavor very nicely. Great brew!

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 (1449) - 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. It’s 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.
