nimbleprop (6651) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 26, 2014
375ml bottle pours a very murky, opaque black with some creamy, beige head. Nose has fresh coffee bean, reminded me a bit of the fruity beans that come out of barrels, some wet earth, licorice, mild booze, some cola, some raisin, but mostly just nice/approachable coffee bean. Flavor has some more complexity, molasses, licorice, some distinct char, roasted malt, coffee beans, cola, some barbeque sauce, some plum, a little duck sauce, a little black cherry. Interestingly, a lot of the flavors can also be found in high end coffee bean. Full bodied, lightly hot finish.

BBB63 (6507) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 3, 2012
12.7 oz bottle and served in Bells tulip: Basically pitch black with an initial huge frothy tan head and left outstanding lace on the glass, only a 4 due to the over carbonated head. The aroma, oh yeah there be coffee beans here! Also got a lot of the other nice things too like roast, chocolate, char, leather, tobacco, dark breads and moderate grassy and piney hops. The taste is coffee driven but you get a lot of cocoa nibs, vanilla bean, sweet syrupy malts and leathery yeast as well. Methinks the taste is actually well balanced all things considered. Slight ashy and even-handed hop bitterness upon the finish along with a dash of fruity and liquorice notes. As is the case with most coffee imbued stouts, the mouth feel is a tad weak and shows the alcohol a bit too firmly. Quite biting and aggressive. Overall the whole of the parts makes me like this quite a bit, sure there are some areas for improvement but this is a darn solid drinker.

jmgreenuk (6495) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 20, 2013
Tap at Fermentoren, Copenhagen. Poured a dark mahogany with a thin bubbly tan head. The aroma is peat and malt. The flavour is big bitter, coffee, dark chocolate and alcohol liqourice. A very nice beer, but I’d prefer a lower ABV with less bitterness. More is not always best.

77ships (6479) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 15, 2013
20 cl. draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Black with small mocha head. Nose is cold coffee, grounds & roast. Taste is roaste coffee & malts, ice cold coffee is heavy, bitter roast is noticable in the back, more sweet malts & coffee, light herbs, touch caramel, more on the roasted side of RIS. Body is on the side of less carb. Very enjoyable but falls a bit short of quite a few of RIS, still very nice but probably not for the price this usually commends.
