Keg at RB Best ’16, 31/01/16. Black toppped with a moderately appointed tan covering. Nose is rich malt, chocolate, coffee grinds, light spice, tar. Taste comprises chocolate, vanilla, dark fruit rinds, raisens, light spice, toffee fudge. Full bodied, oliy feel, warming alcohol in the close. Solid impy, well balanced, drinks below the ABV, good coffee hit.

joeneugs (4888) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 5, 2016
On tap at RateBeer Best 2016. It pours a dark brown color with a brown head. The aroma is extremely intense with coffee extract and mild hints of maple syrup. Very chocolaty as well. The flavor is equally intense with chocolate brownies, coffee and more mild hints of maple syrup that’s perceived more in the mouth feel than the flavor. Coffee roast and chocolate in the finish. The body is very thick and decadent. Pretty awesome stuff. Glad to have tried it.

Shared bottle. Deep molasses, coffee, and chcolate notes. Palate is very, very sweet. Has a nice dark mahogony hue with a thin vanilla/tan head. It’s a very good beer, dense with flavors.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2016 Tap at the Rate Beer Awards Festival. Huge aroma of coffee and cocoa. Sweet, rich flavor of maple syrup, coffee, chocolate syrup. A bit of prickly pepper in the finish. Also some hints of raspberry and cherry. Really lovely stout. Pretty much lived up to the hype.

Taste is medium to high sweet and light bitter with notes of coffee, vanilla, bourbon and chocolate. Full bodied with low to medium carbonation. Great, very nice.

thirdeye11 (5914) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 24, 2016
(22oz bomber) thick and viscous, dark espresso brown, tan bubbles. The nose has an odd combo of maple and coffee that smells vegetal to me. Some acrid nature to it also. Rich and chocolaty, oaky and tannins. Taste of bitter coffee, dark chocolate, fairly rich, huge viscosity, the amount of maple, chocolate and coffee is just huge. Perhaps slightly out of balance but it’s huge and has few equals in that respect. A unique beer that’s awesome.
