Deep brown color with a nice tan head. Aroma has a lot of chocolate in it, coffee, caramel, vanilla, and licorice. Taste has a ton, and i mean a ton, of coffee flavor. Vanilla, chocolate, licorice... More than anything this tastes like vanilla- cream coffee I use to get at 24hr road stops late at night. I know that doesn't sound very good, and as far as coffee goes, it wasn't, but ad a beer this is absolutely fantastic. And for such a low abv beer (relative to the typical robust porter or imperial stout, which would usually have this depth of flavor) it's incredible. sam_uk93 (32) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2017
Pours black, small head. Great sweet, roasty coffee smell. Wonderfull flavours of coffee, sweet caramel, followed by a slight chocolatey bitter finish with more roasted coffee. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Absolutely fantastic stout! One of my favourites for sure! richardhowarth (8) - - SEP 8, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2017 If you find this on nitro, then thank the landlord, slow down the clock, take your time and maximize the enjoyment. Smooth, creamy, well balanced chocolate flavours - this is something special. Round of applause to 8wired for this masterpiece. Thank you. Well worth the investment if you find it in 500ml bottles too. Empty the shelf / fridge! john44 (3331) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2017

Poured out dark brown-black. 38 SRM.
Nose has roasted coffee, earthy, woody and faintly floral aromas. The bitter, woody aromas of coffee or coffee grounds being most obvious.
Mouthfeel is a flat white coffee with carbonation. Palate has roasted malt, dark roast coffee, malty creaminess, hint of coffee berry fruitiness, nice nuttiness in the back end suggesting roasted peanuts. Hops flavors are woody, burnt toast, scorched wood.
Overall a nicely balanced, true-to-style stout boasting solid coffee flavors. Gangstergafje (1227) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2017

The looks of the beer are pure love. The beer has a nice dark appearance. The colour is pitch black. Strong light reveals a very dark brown colour. It is impossible to look trough the beer. On top of the beer a nice layer of light brown foam is formed. Foam retention is rather low. The foam leaves a beautiful lacing on the glass though.
The smell of the beer is nice. It is exactly like you can expect when you hear the name of the beer. There is a lovely smell of stout. Nice aromas of some toasted malts, including some chocolate, some coffee. Tere is a nice fruity hoppy touch. On top of this, there is an amazing coffee aroma. It is strong and pure, and enhances the coffee touches that are present in the basic stout smell. I like this. The coffee gives nice bitters to the smell. But, the coffee also has something softs, slightly sweet, like coffee milk. I like the fact that the smell has exactly what is stated in the name of the beer. Good job.
The taste of the beer is equally nice. It also has the nice basis of a good stout. There are lovely touches of burnt malts, chocolate and some coffee. The coffee of the stout is enhanced by the extra coffee flavours. The burnt malts gives nice sweets, whilst the coffee gives more bitter flavours. Chocolate provides in both bitterness and sweetness. I also taste the milky part. This has something sweet and creamy, and is closely linked to the coffee aroma. It is really like it is coffee with milk, poured into a stout. Nicely done. All flavours, bitters, sweets and slightly salty touches form the roast, are in near perfect balance. Lovely.
The palate of the beer is near perfect. Full body, smooth and creamy texture and medium carbonation. The finish is amazing. It is filled with creamy coffee, that dies away slowly, leaving a nice bitter and slightly sweet flavour in the mouth for a very long time. I love it. I wish I could drink liters and liters of this stuff. It is like a good flavoured stout should be.
