Taste roasted malts, coffee, hints of mocca, hops, bitter and a little bit of alcohol. Very nice balance, very nice beer! Good mouthfeel, medium to full body, medium carbonation.

bhensonb (14166) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 4, 2008
2008 bomber from Marcus. Only the good stuff. Black color with no head. The aroma is complexly tarry. Vanilla. Wood. Anise? Chocolate. Scary. Medium plus body with chewy carbonation. Flavor is rather tarry. With chocolate and coffee and vanilla. If Santa doesn’t come to your house, he is probably lying in ecstasy on a North Pole floor. Very satisfying and tasty.

FatPhil (14098) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 1, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2014 660ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki, American Weeks 2009) - shared with oh6gdx - thanks! (6:4:7:3:13=3.3)
Coffee aroma. Some slight sherbet. Coffee in the taste too. Quite creamy. Nice burnt and hoppy palate. However, retronasally I’m getting battery acid, which ain’t so great. Pretty good sipper, covers the alcohol quite well.
Rerate: Bottle pour (Līgo Ziema 2014, Riga) (7:4:7:4:13=3.5)
Nice roast. Sticky finish. OK.

Tmoney99 (13602) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 10, 2007
Draft at Downtown Johnny Browns. Poured dark brown with a moderate creamy light brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Heavy toasted chocolate and coffee malt with a small alcohol aroma. Full body with a creamy texture. Heavy balanced toasted malt and spice flavor with a heavy bittersweet finish of long duration. This is a standout stout beer.
