A diabolical alliance of brewers and publicans brought forth this unholy concoction, a chocolate coffee stout. And then added dark rum. Because. And any suggestion this was was so we could sit in the brewhouse listening to Alestorm is debased, scurrilous and true...
Admiral for bittering, Sorachi, Bramling X and Nelson Sauvin for flavour, and a healthy dose of dark muscovado sugar

Everettm (81) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2014
Pours very dark brown with a thin tan halo and good lacing. Aroma is dominated by very dark chocolate and bitter roasted coffee, hints of rum and caramel. Medium body with pleasantly suited carbonation. Taste is dominated by waves of dark chocolate which quickly morphs into extremely bitter roasted malt and coffee, very little hop character comes through. Finish is palate wrenchingly bitter (roasted/ coffee) and semi dry

Bottle at Craigís tasting. Very bitter, dry roast coffee, chocolate, sweet, too much bitter coffee for me.

500ml bottle via Craig, cheers! Pours near black, no head. Aromas of coffee, lots of coffee! Taste is more coffee, light dark chocolate bitterness. Coffee bitter too. Interesting, but a bit over-powering.

Muddied Earthy roast, arse cracked sweated coffee and . Big slap of bitter coffee and more tang than roast which was refreshing in more ways than one. Impressively hidden boozy sweetness of the added rum, granular bitterness throughout and a neat cooling finish.

Bottle, Cheers EvilEmpire

From Bottle, thereís quiet a lot going on here, initially the coffee dominates everything, however, once this wears off the more subtle flavours start to come through. I poured at cellar temp, however once it warmed up to room temp the rum really came through. Not quite a a perfect coffee stout just yet but an excellent effort lads

Garrold (4242) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2014
Bottle from Beer Central, Sheffield. Itís all that it promises to be, but is let down by a damp cardboard aroma and taste. Any Steel City beers Iíve had on cask or keg, outshine the bottled stuff by a long way.

tommann (3346) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours very dark brown with a medium head. Aroma is coffee and chocolate with a little dark fruit. Taste is strong coffee. Liquorice in the bitter finish with more coffee on the aftertaste.
