Torrefacto (511) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 18, 2013
Color negro con reflejos caobas y espuma beige. Aromas de café, bizcocho y vainilla. En boca es sedosa con un inicio dulce y tostado que pasa a un amargor duradero pero suavizado. El regusto tiene un equilibrio excepcional de todos esos elementos. Excelente.

Bottle shared at Bruce’s in London - big thanks to Kenneth, pours dark brown with a bubbly tan head. Inviting aroma, nice coffee, some dark fruits, chocolate. Medium sweet flavor, tons of coffee, dark bread, earth, chocolate. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming finish, lots of filter coffee, some roasted malts, cocoa. Good balance. I like it.

Dogbrick (7634) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Sample from batch #112 at Kurtkeller 004: Pipeworks-tastic 01 on 01/18/2014. Inky black pour with a medium khaki head that diminishes gradually. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Coffee, roasted malt and dark chocolate in the nose. Full-bodied with flavors of roast coffee, semi-bitter chocolate and caramel. The finish is roasty with a coffee aftertaste. Good beer all around.

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.

HonkeyBra (3261) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Pours a dark blackish color with a small tan head. Aroma of coffee, espresso, some milk and dark chocolate. Flavor of coffee, cream, sweet chocolate notes. Some roast and dark chocolate. This is certainly nice. It’s medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel, lightish carbonation. Pretty nice beer.

crossovert (6970) - Illinois, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Belgian-pour produces a huge, creamy multi-hued tan head that slowly dissipates. The smell is nice, coffee, brownies, roasted malt. Mouthfeel is thick and viscous. Flavor is bittersweet through and through. Ashy coffee and malts, a bit of booze. I like the ashy astringency but the high sugary booze character blending with it can be too much at times. A solid beer htough. I think the cherry oak treatment of this beer was the best so far.
