Bottle from Brook-Falls Discount. Pours a very, very dark brown with a tannish head. Some spotty lacing. Aroma has rich luxurious coffee with a lot of chocolate and caramel, and a nutty presence. Wow! Taste is of roasted malts, strong bitter coffee, some sweet choco-caramel and bitter nuts. Strong, powerful and rich. Finishes roasted bitter with sweetness in the end. Overwhelming smell. A bit of smoothness (more oatmeal??) would make this world class.

[ Bottle ][ 12oz ][ Discount Liquors Milkwaukee ][ $3 ][ Woodshop Snifter ][ 10.24.14 ]
>> Pours clear deep brown producing an inky pour in the glass with large, brown foam. Okay retention and spotty lacing. Nose is sharper green cheap coffee and jalapeño. Moves to richer creme brulee, spicy pepper, vanilla bean, huge cinnamon graham cracker, dark cherry. Taste up front is bubbly, clean, medium bodied, low lemon acid, dark cherry soda. Super clean finish, coconut, mild to almost no coffee, no harshness. Easy to enjoy, no off flavors. Great stuff.

Bottle thanks to bytemesis. Pours dark brown with reddish highlights. Thin layer of fine bubbles. Aroma: coffee and oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. Taste: coffee dominates here. Still plenty of chocolate, but sweetness is muted. Assertive coffee bitterness in the finish. Palate: medium+ body that doesn’t quite hold up to the fullness of the taste. Silky texture, average carbonation. Overall: I repeat: coffee with oatmeal chocolate chip cookie - 2 parts coffee to 1 part cookie.

Hotel Borefts 14. Trade with Hannont. Thanks Todd. Pours black with a creamy head. Mocha, roast and a vinous round creamy and smooth palate. Very slick. Lovely!

Sampled bottle @ Borefts Hotel room. Thank you Dedollewaitor / Mads & Christian! Fell asleep during some part of this tasting as usual. Vintage bottle if I am correct. Black little mocha. Strong soy sauce nose, thick roast, liquorish, syrupy, caramel, brown sugar, chocolate, rich, caramel, sweet coffee,.. Rich body, quite nice.

Black with a small off white head. Aroma of coffee liqueur, caramel and vanilla. Sweetish malty flavour with sweet coffee notes, chocolate and toffee. Like a thin Kalua...

"Opens up so nicely. Roasted coffee, earthy hops, a touch of chocolate on the nose. The flavor is a little more bitter than sweet, more earthy coffee beans and a touch of hops. Nicely balanced and very smooth. High quality across the board. Started out a high 3, but got better every sip. Thanks Heybeerman for the trade."

Rich earthy coffee and dark cocoa bitterness with hints of the fruitiness I’ve had from some dark chocolates. Quite tasty, though the coffee isn’t my favorite "type" of coffee flavor.
