BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Dark body. No head. Thanks bob. Aroma of coffey. Too bitter. Thank god I’m not getting the bourbon people are getting on aroma. Green pepper on the aroma, as with too many beers. Perhaps my two least favorite things in a beer flavor - bourbon and peppery coffey.

joes (90) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2011
Very dark brown, almost black beer. Aroma of coffee, sweet alcohol, chocolate/mocca. Starts sweet, but good bitter and sweet balance in the backtaste. Sweet coffee, some liquorice and loads of mocca. Verry smooth, verry good.

Bomber from Ellwood - thanks, Jeremy! Ooh daddy, I do love a coffee stout and this one was wickedly good. A lovely silken dark brown pour with a mellow nose, not too heavily boozy or chocolate but with a sharp edge alongside the sweet promise. Really intensely good mouthfeel that recalls KBS to me. If I had any complaint it’s that the beer is every so often just a bit too sweet and the coffee too subdued. But there’s no denying it’s damn good.

caesar (5567) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 16, 2011
Bottle @ drbm. Black, short head. Wonderful aroma of fresh grinded coffee, roasted malts and a touch of vanilla and bourbon. The bourbon notes come through more in the taste and is wonderfully balanced with the sweet mocha and vanilla flavors on a good backbone of roasty imperial stout. Smooth as a whistle, wonderfully complex and balanced brew. Superb.
