Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2013
22oz bottle from Binny’s Lincoln Park. Batch #66. Pours a black body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is pretty awesome. Lots of espresso and fresh coffee, but plenty of the base to keep things balanced. Rich chocolates, resiny and citrusy pine hops, roasts, and a bit of a vanilla cream showing up. Flavor is big and bold with lots of espresso, citrusy pine hops, rich milky and dark chocolates, roasts, and some more vanilla cream. Finishes moderately bitter with lots of citrus pines, plenty of coffee, a good amount of roasts, and lots of plump chocolates. Lengthy aftertaste following a full, very smooth body and a creamy, medium-light carbonation. Overall, this was pretty damn good and by far my favorite from these guys yet. Big and rich with plenty of citrusy hops and roasts from the original, but lots of coffee that compliments the base extremely well while never overpowering. Drink this one fresh to get the most out of it. Awesome beer.

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.

madvike (3148) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Bottle - Pours pretty dark with a ring of tan bubbly head. Nose is milky with some coffee and some lightly roasted dark malt. Taste is the same--roasty finish and a little pepper heat (?). Medium-bodied and well-carbonated. Good, but I was expecting more based on what I’ve heard about this one.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - MAR 26, 2015
Bottle: Deep brown, nearly black color with a toasted beige head, slightly frothy, creamy, & quick to recede. Aroma of French pressed, French roast coffee. Very rich, deep, dark, & semi-bitter. A touch of dark malt sweetness balances the huge roasted aromas, but also adds another element of char in the periphery. Body on this one is super creamy, velvety, chewy, & silky... Wow, excellent mouth feel. Huge coffee flavor up front. Good mix of "bitter-roast" & "creamy-sweet". A touch of booze, licorice, dark cacao bean, & plum hangs around the outside, but roasted coffee beans are certainly the star of the show. Really nice coffee beer.

@ basunen: lite diskret doft av kaffesump men vilken härlig smak av stark kaffe och vanilj. Len och lång eftersmak. Sofistikerat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

umich03jm (3098) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - MAR 12, 2014
Bottle thanks to FullObs. Batch 248/250/252, about 4 months old. Pours very dark brown with a small head that quickly fades to a thin ring. Aroma is nice fresh light roasted coffee, some light sweet lactose, vanilla, cocoa, and caramel. Coffee is the dominant taste and there’s a great sweet/bitter balance. Chocolate, caramel, vanilla, and light burnt wood make it through well too. Solid coffee stout that hides the high abv very well.

Damico (3053) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2013
Pours thick, dark black like oil without much of a head. The aroma brings smooth delicious roasted coffee and some smooth booze. The body is creamy, not too full, with big flavors of coffee and smooth spicy malts, almost like bourbon barrel going on here.

Lukaduke (2853) - Gray, 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.
