This is a gorgeous beer. Opaque, very dark brown, with a dark mocha, perfectly formed head. Strong aromas of milk chocolate and coffee. The mouthfeel is viscous and very pleasant. The flavors are comprised of chocolate milkshake and coffee. A bit of smokiness too. There’s some nice capsaicin burn at the finish. Man, this is an amazing creation.

Overall: Impressive that the coffee can push through this big beer. Really good coffee flavor without acidity.

Just as advertised Mexican cake in a bottle. Cinnamon, spice and everything coffee beans! That is how the expression goes right? Well it does now!

Otter shared by Greg at Darkness Day - big spicy nose. Big thick black pour with a tan head. Big spiciness in the taste without being hot. Herbal, chocolate and good.

Osprey87 (1180) - London via, WALES - MAR 30, 2014
Keg at Beer Temple Amsterdam. Black with tan head. Aroma - strong coffee, ash. Body is medium, smooth, some spritz and more carbonation than I’m used to with the style. Taste - strong sweet coffee, chocolate and chili. So, basically, it tastes of the stuff they threw in with the beer. Didn’t get much cinnamon and vanilla though.

Bottle sampled at a tasting. From notes. Chocolate fudge and caramel dominated by roasty coffee. Another great beer from my backlog.

Via trade with zombi3brainz. The aroma is chocolate. cocoa, vanilla.The appearance is a lovely black, big tan head. The flavor is chocolate, vanilla, hot pepper. The pepper really scorches on the finish. Nice thick creamy body. Honestly, the only drawback to this is the peppers. A little would have done this beer good. But as you drink more of this, the peppers dominate. Probably this wouldn’t occur in a small serving. Nice beer, with this one drawback.

kappldav123 (4593) - Nordhausen, GERMANY - JUL 3, 2013
On tap at CBC 2012. Deep black in the glass, almost no head. Malty aroma with coffee hints. Starts intense malty, modest sweet, again some coffee. Soft-malty finish, well balanced. Nice!

Intriguing aroma, perfect dark pour, hot but balanced taste and slightly warming mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

StoutHead (483) - DENMARK - OCT 4, 2013
On tap. Pours black with a dark-ish brown head. Aroma of malt, coffee and chocolate. Taste is like the aroma but also has a good peppery chilli flavour. Habanero peppers in beers can go either way, but feels balanced here. Starts out sweet but has an intense chili aftertaste...but it works. Full bodied. Great imperial stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
