3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour from a 375 ml bottle at The Party Source. Pours a deep, mostly opaque brown with no head. Aroma of gritty, roasted malts and coffee and a lot of it; some dark chocolate and hints of vanilla, too. Flavor of coffee, dark chocolate, earth, and nuts. Medium-bodied, with a gritty, roasty mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Good coffee stout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark appearance and dark coffee taste. Minimal head that disappeared quickly. Great dark taste (have I mentioned it's dark yet?) - delicious.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, generously shared by BenH. The pour’s deep brown with a rich, oily dark tan head. Attractive appearance. The nose is bright roasted espresso bean. Plenty of charred wood. Menacing coffee aromas. The taste is espresso heavy too. Rich bitter dark chocolate accents. Slightly sweet finish. Full body, fat and oily. Overall, a decent impy stout. It doesn’t have a depth of flavor that the best in this style seem to possess. But it’s still quite enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Strong aroma correlates well with the taste. Black appearance with bigh, dark brown head. Medium taste spectrum with original flavors of malts and coffee beans, but too roasted. Also there is some tangy flavor, that jumps up on the first bite, maybe something to do with that roasted flavor. Alcohol is masked properly and carbonation is OK. Adequate palate.

Pours a deep black with a dark brown head. Massive roasty coffee aromas. Taste is similar .. This is the most coffee intense beer I’ve ever had. Anal sex in a glass... This beer is damn impressive.

Bottle at home. Pours pitch black with a big, creamy brown head. Coffee and roasted malts in the aroma. (and a hint of citrus hops?). full bodied, excellent balance between the coffee, alcohol and roasted malts.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. High creamy long lasting brown head. Pitch black body. Powerful roasted malt coffee cocoa aroma with a good deal of alcohol as well. Strong roasted malt coffee cocoa flavor heavily dominated by alcohol. Nice bitterness. High carbonation. Long bitter finish. Guess a couple of years of starge would be advantageous. Too much of everything.

375ml. bottle. Pitch black with a large dark brown persistent head. Aroma is of coffee. Tastes like hard roasted coffee, malts and sugar. Smooth and sweet with a long aftertaste. Full bodied. Alcohol isn’t masked very well, but it doesn’t matter - it warms and it’s delicious.
