fidelis83 (1823) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Black pour with a 1 finger, creamy tan head that has great retention and leaves decent lacing. Aroma is coffee, roast, roasted nuts, toasty grain, dark caramel and dark chocolate. Flavor is coffee and nutty notes up front, wood, roast, a touch of char, light woody notes, a little earthy spice and light resinous notes. Light leaning toward medium body with a dry, but somewhat syrupy feel throughout. Good stuff, very coffee forward without tasting stale, but whatever is there besides the coffee is overshadowed a bit too much for the feel of the beer, if it had a bit fuller body it could carry it nicely.

On tap enjoyed with Drew estate nica rustica cigar so taste was slightly masked. Sweet coffee flavor with molasses. Good pour.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a fairly transparent light cola with off-white head that quickly dissipates into lacing. Smells solid too; dark malt and lots of pleasant coffee. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Good, not great.

eelbasher (285) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Bottle. From the bottle so no pour. Deep black though...Aromas of chocolate, roasted grain, coffee, and a touch of caramel. Strong coffee and chocolate flavor. Medium body and easy drinking. Nice finish and wonderful.

Boutip (4490) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 12, 2014
Bottle: Poured a deep black color stout with a large light brown foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of dry coffee notes with light roasted malt. Taste is dominated by dry bitter coffee notes with and almost spicy finish. Light bitter black chocolate notes are also noticeable. Body is a bit light for style with good carbonation. Too bitter for my taste with coffee notes veering into stringency territory.

tdmuel (250) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Pours a very dark red with a big and fluffy light brown head. Toooons of coffee on the nose, really roasty, caramel, milk chocolate, and maybe a hint of vanilla. Again, lots and lots of nice roasty, bold coffee predominant on the taste, some nice dark chocolate, vanilla bean, and a nice dark bitter character. Really quite tasty and super heavy on the coffee.

Dark opaque brown with a coffee aroma. Kaldis is one of my favorite coffees and you can smell it and taste it in this beer. A sweet deep rich coffee flavor. Yum.

Big coffee aroma and lots more on the palate. It is balanced out with nice roasted malt and some dark fruit. Nice coffee bomb
