Boutip (5737) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 26, 2015
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of strong dry bitter coffee notes with some roasted malt is dominant. Taste is also dominated by strong dry coffee notes that also veered into astringency territory. Some black chocolate notes are also perceptible. Body is about average with nice level of carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not bad but coffee notes are almost too powerful for the overall balance of this beer.

nuplastikk (5677) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 1, 2014
22oz bomber. Brown black body,some translucent edges, the beige head that fades out pretty quick. You certainly get the added vanilla...it gives it a very sweet, sugary feel. A pretty good adjunct Imperial Stout....sort of like a Southern Tier beer but more centered around the additional flavors. As the bottle says, this is a Latte Stout. Tasty, but not really a beer I want to drink the whole bottle of. The vanilla-chocolate-coffee combination is massive, and there is some depth in that regard. Pretty mellow on the palate for 10.5%. Should lose points for the FIBalicious office white boy art, but I’ll try and forgive them for that.

thedm (5497) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 22, 2013
This bottled brew from a rating party poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized brown colored bubbles that were and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark brown colored body and a fair lacing. . The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering mild roasted malt aftertaste. The strong flavor contained notes of mildly vinous roasted malt coffee brown malt and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

PhillyCraft (5340) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle compliments of Tom shared with a few others. Poured black with light khaki head, not a whole lot of lacing to note. Aromas and flavor of heavy coffee, ample hops, vanilla extract, roasted beans, and bitter dark chocolate. Strong, sticky, and boozey but all in a good way.

kaser (5313) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2015 Draft at high noon. Black thick pour. Brown head. Dry malty aroma. Completely a coffee beer. Rich and toffee. Cocoa. Wow 3/5/2015 - rerate - black pour from 22o bottle at home. No head. Very sweet coffee and milk aroma. Taste is cocoa milky vanilla and sweet. Will keep the same numbers - just tastes different than I thought 2 years ago

ClubGonzo (5307) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 29, 2013
Bottle. Pours a pitch black body with a small beige head. Aroma is coffee, dark berries, chocolate, hints of dark malts and charcoal. Taste is coffee, vanilla, hints of resin and dark sugars. Medium body and carbonation. OK, but lacks the little extra to be great.

burg326 (5253) - Florida, USA - APR 30, 2013
Bottle shared at the Tampa Tasting, poured a dark black color with aromas of fresh pressed coffee, light roast, some light hops and some earth. Flavors are the same, mostly black coffee, light bitterness and roast in the aftertaste. Pretty amazed at this beer for such a high abv, didn’t taste like it, a great beer.

jkwood04 (5214) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 10, 2013
22oz bottle in a snifter. Pours black with a lacy, tan head. Aroma of a lot of coffee, roasted and chocolate malts, a little vanilla, and hints of hops. Flavor the same, with a good amount of coffee that blends with the rest of the beer really well. Smooth to thick texture. A really good beer.

markwise (5096) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 14, 2013
Bomber courtesy of a kind soul at Bold City on the RBWG Tour. Pours a brown with a tan head. Nose is big coffee, bitterness, roast, slight booze, chocolate, and earth. Flavor follows with some coffee bitterness, chocolate, roast, earth, and some sweet coffee. Finish lingers with coffee bitterness. Medium in body and very nice.

TimE (4836) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 7, 2013
Dark brown color with thin head. Smells like a ton of cold coffee with slight notes of roasted malt and caramel. Sweet, unbalanced mouth that is over ridden with coffee. Lingering coffee roasted finish. I wanted to like this, but very simplistic brew that went no where
