UPDATED: DEC 4, 2019 Draft: Poured a black with light brown head. Aroma was cinnamon and coffee. Taste is super cinnamon to my palate, some boozy rum. juiceisloose (2597) - Windermere, Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2018
750ml bottle. Pours a really dark brown almost black in color and topped by a thick tan layer of foam that shows good retention before settling into a thin film and leaves streaks of lace around the glass. The aroma shows notes of dark chocolate, toasted vanilla, roasted coffee, and some cinnamon spice over a dark roasted malt base with subtle notes of amaretto and rum soaked oak. The flavor follows suit with notes of dark chocolate, rich toasted vanilla, and dark roasted coffee up front followed by the dark roasted malts and a touch of cinnamon spice. The rum soaked oak adds a touch of spice and sweetness and ties everything together with an oaky smoothness. Nearly full bodied and smooth with soft carbonation that leads to a dark chocolate, coffee, and toasted vanilla finish with some lingering cinnamon spice. They nailed the flavor components of the Tiramisu dessert without getting overly sweet and cloying. There is a nice balance throughout. Just needs the lady fingers. Excellent sweet stout from the masters of the sweet stout genre. AndyW68 (1894) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 2, 2018
Near black pour with tan head. Aroma is sweet coffee. Taste is sweet cake, cream and coffee. Couple extra sips and you get dark fruit. Good stuff. zvikar (10702) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - APR 15, 2018

@ Beerlovers Bar. Thanks David S.
Nice rum and cacao in aroma. Taste is pastry all over the place. Sweet cake with vanilla and coffee. A tad cinnamon. Complex for this kind of stout. Multilayered. Nice full and sticky palate. Aftertaste is rum and chocolate. djd07 (20065) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 11, 2017

Sampled from a 750 ml bottle shared by someone at Listermann. Pours black in color with a small khaki colored head. The aroma and flavor are as advertised, chocolate, coffee, cinnamon, vanilla, toffee, hints of wood, sweet, dessert like, not as full bodied as some of the Angry Chair stouts I’ve had, good. gregwilsonstl (2979) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 12, 2017

(On tap @ CBC 2016 Yellow Session, Copenhagen) Pours pitch black with a dark tan head. Nose is extraordinarily dessert-like and unctuous, very tiramisu-like in character. Really rich coffee, a bit of almond, Amaretto notes, dark unsweetened chocolate, caramel drizzle, pretty intense. Flavour is more balanced, not extraordinarily sugary malt. Lots of coffee, coffee liqueur, amaretto, nutty notes, very measured overall, hints of cookie dough. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Hits the tiramisu marks nicely, and the sweetness coming up more on the nose than the tongue enhances drinkability. Good dessert in a glass.
