Shared a bottle with cbkschubert. Coffee aroma stood out along with raosty, and oatmeal grains. Black motor oil body witha dark chocolate head. Flavor has hint of oameal and great roasted coffee and chocolate flavors. Good thing I was able to try this one.

12oz bottle, 2006 vintage, courtesy of TheBeerCellar2. Thanks, Matt! Pours a dark black center with thin, cola-brown edges; fizzy brown bubbles (hinting at oatmeal) are soon all that’s left of the head. Lots of bitter, roasted coffee in the aroma; milk chocolate and vanilla. Medium mouthfeel: slightly fizzy and green (hints of a vegetal note), but otherwise tasty. In spite of loving both coffee and stouts, the combinations I’ve had often tend to taste too green and unroasted to be all that pleasant. This one does a better job of keeping its balance than some, with notes of milk chocolate and roasted malts keeping things together; the oatmeal also seems to add a creamier texture. Bitter finish with plenty of coffee.

Pours pitch black with a decent brown head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, and sweet malt. Taste follows aroma closely with oats making an appearance. Mouthfeel is thick but palate is thin. Coffee finish. A good brew.

Thanks to unclemattie for the bottle. pours black with a large head. Fair lacing. Aroma is sweet grains, coffee, and chocolate malt. Creamy texture, but not as much as you would expect. Very good balance of flavors, though. I’ll have to trade for a couple more of these.

12oz bottle, thanks to JCB for this beer. pours pitch black with nice head that didn’t last long and actually has no head in short time. nose is a strong roasted and sweet coffee and oatmeal. not much else in the aroma. flavor has nice coffee. flavor has lots of coffee, slight charred chocolate notes, oats, and a good amount of bitterness. mouthfeel is slightly fizzy and sit sorta watery on the palate. beer finishes with a burnt coffee flavor. you got to like coffee to be into this. and i do! this is solid beer but lacks the complexity to make this really special.

The color is extremely dark. There was no light penetration. There is very little head that is medium brown. The aroma has a very strong dark roast coffee smell, slightly sweet. The flavor has a very strong dark roast coffee taste that is slightly bitter. The palate is full and the finish is sightly bitter and warm. I am a huge coffee person and the flavor of the coffee in this beer is outstanding.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2008 Poured a deep black and allowed no light. The head was almost nonexistent and tan. The aroma smelled strongly of dark roasted coffee, hints of chocolate, and roast. Tasted very strongly of coffee as well. Deep dark roasted taste, sweet, little alcohol, sweet chocolate, chocolate covered fruit. The palate was a little harsh and bitter. Alcohol shows with a rise in temperature. Excellent beer.

Pours black like motor oil, just looks thick and viscous. Small brown head fades quickly. Smells like a cup of coffee. Coffee is the first flavor to come through as well, with some chocolate, caramel, toffee...all the usual. Its pretty tasty to sip after dinner. Full body, creamy and heavy in the mouth. There’s a distinctive flavor that I usually pick up with beers made with oats that is thankfully not present in this one.

Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - DEC 29, 2006
Bottled. Black with no head. Sweet, vinous and port wine like aroma with strong coffee note. Sweet flavor with coffee, port wine, roast barley and rye. Too sweet.
