(Bottle). Another unique find from QuezXLV. Very rich coffee, roasted malt flavor with hop balance and warming alcohol. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at mongoose vs cobra. Black pour with a flash of tan head. Aroma is coffee, sweet milk chocolate, toffee. Taste is coffee, sweet chocolate, hints of cream, toffee, faint cherry. Wow, decadent. Smooth body. Great beer.

Niby wszystko na swoim miejscu, ale jednak coś w tym piwie powoduje, że nie gra .... o wiem brak mu ciała. To Ol potrafi robić piwa z masą a to się pije trochę jak sweet stouta (oczywiscie przesadzam)

mateuszk (809) - Poznań, POLAND - JUL 16, 2015
Pitch black, beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, licorice, some dried fruits. In taste similar, could be a bit more roasted. Medium sweet, full bodied, silky and oily on the palate. Very solid imperial stout, though little coffee for coffee stout.

BeerRenter76 (291) - Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Originally rated on 12/21/14. A dark brown pour yields a 1+ finger, bubbly, dark tan head with good retention. Black body with lower levels of carbonation. Aromas of roasted grain, dark chocolate, coffee, sweet cream and caramel, some oats as well. Flavors of roasted notes, coffee and oats up front. Lots of flavor for sure. Big finish of roasted grain, roasted coffee beans, oats, sweet cream and bitter dark chocolate. Good oats and roasted bitterness here, with coffee and dark chocolate rounding it out. Nice. Medium body and medium levels of carbonation.Overall this is really good, well worth checking out, recommended.

nudiebear (236) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2015
Bottle at bar. Served way too cold. Poured a clear dark brown with a brown head. Nose has nuts, roasted coffee, licorice, Turkish pepper. Tastes medium sweet (dark sugar?) and medium bitter with a coffee mouth feel. Solid non-watery, very drinkable. Wish I had time to get it to the right temperature before enjoying.

JStax (3774) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUL 2, 2015
Bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a dark brown to black with a huge khaki head of foam. It took quite awhile to pour this beer. The aroma has a tone of fresh ground coffee and some chocolate sweetness. Mostly coffee bitterness in the taste, but some sweetness in there as well. Finishes bitter and roasty. Thick mouthfeel and plenty of body. Moderate carbonation. Really quite good.

colui72 (255) - HONG KONG - JUN 27, 2015
Black with lasting brown head. Aroma of espresso, which dominates the taste as well. Very smooth almost creamy. The bitterness of the coffee and the roasted malts stays consistent until a glorious bitter finish. Fantastic beer.

From old notes. First time I had this was from tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. I had it again some times from tap and from bottle. Black color with brown head. Roasted malty aroma, lot of coffee, some chocolate, light dark fruits. Sweet and bitter taste like aroma, with vanilla and mocha notes. Full creamy body with soft carbonation.
