Gerbeer (1928) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 2, 2013
330 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with medium brown head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of rich dark coffee and a hint of dark chocolate. Flavors of watery strong coffee (where’s the malts?) and cocoa powder. A light coffee flavored stout.

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 30, 2013
Draught at REAL A Gastropub, Honolulu, HI
Black color, with beige creamy head. Mild aroma of roasted malts, with light sourness, light wood/timber. The mouthfeel is smooth, the roasted malt flavor is mild, with moderate sourness; the bitterness level is between fair and low. Balanced.
Not a favorite style of mine, but surely very well brewed.

Black color; small head quickly disappearing. Nice, delicate coffee aroma. Weaker body than expected, powerful roasted malt flavor and coffee, more evident at the end. Quite strong bitterness.

Black color; medium, creamy head. The name is a promise: from the aroma to the flavor there is a very nice coffee character, never obsessively burnt, mildly roasted as the Italian label (Espresso) that it bears; the body is thinner that expected after 7.5% ABV, almost dry at the end; there is light liquorice in the aroma and a very light creamy mouthfeel. The more I drink of it, the more I like. Very good.

reebtogi (4301) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 13, 2013
330ml bottle pours a jet black color with a small light brown head that leaves only a few spots of lacing behind. Aroma is dominated by coffee with some chocolate present as well. Taste is also a strong coffee bitterness which overpowers the chocolate malty sweetness and any hops that may be present. Although, this is a high quality brew, the coffee was just too much for me.

ARMed (608) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2012
This beer has a tart finish that creates a poor palate. While I enjoyed the coffee aroma and flavor, I was disappointed in both the lack of full bodiness and poor palate. The beer is a malty midnight stout that has some very good qualities, but the one that I just can’t seem to get past is the one that unfortunately dominates my rating.

JohnnyJ (4458) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Bottle. Brown pour. Roast malt, burnt stale bread, a little metallic, and molasses. I’m really not getting much coffee. Not very good.

hoffrobert (178) - Indiana, USA - SEP 22, 2012
12 oz bottle pours jet black. Aroma is almost like chocolate milk. Little carbonation. Tastes like straight black coffee with no cream or sugar. Coffee overwhelmes the beer. Alcohol is disguised well.

3.3
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Bottle. Pours with a mostly clear, quite dark, wooden brown body with a tan head atop. Aroma from a distance of brown sugar, molasses and coffee. On closer inspection: birch bark, light licorice, medium roast, medium coffee, sour, dark currants, earthy, nutty, hazelnuts. Flavors are malty and sweet. A bit tin like. Strong hazelnut. Medium coffee, light roasty smokey quality. Licorice. A touch thin on body, medium carbonation. No warming for 7.2%. Light tobacco finish. Decent, and probably a touch better than the score prescribes.

Travlr (12889) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Draft. Nearly black, small brown head, nice lacing. Aroma of espresso beans covered with dark milk chocolate. Taste starts sweet, dark and roasty, then bitter cocoa and burnt coffee. Nice.

3.5
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
Eructoblaster (3078) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 30, 2012
Bottle - 341ml. Opaque black body with a very thin beige foamy head. Malty/hoppy aroma with brown sugar and roasty hints. Its robust malty/hoppy taste carries plummy and roasted coffee notes. Ends with a long, strong bittersweet finish. Enjoyable, but slightly oversweetened.

2.9
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
Ron (2638) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Bottle. Started with strong coffee flavor with some stout notes. Strong coffee/espresso flavor. Too much for me. Never had espresso. Overwhelmed by the espresso, could not taste the chocolate or anything else. Only a Espresso lover could love.
