bartlebier (3982) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - NOV 11, 2016
650ml NL import. - Earthy Wiener Kaffee made palatable by cautious flourishes of liquorice, mineral roast, red fruit peel and savoury herbalistics. - Deep shoesole brown with mocha head. Just enough measured caramalt sweetness in the deep mocha to balance the layers of hop and malt bitters and cold filter coffee dry mouthfeel. vulcanmeister (272) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - OCT 27, 2016
From 16oz bottle pours a black potion with a small tan head. The aroma is sweet chocolate with some caramel notes. Nice creamy mouthfeel with taste of sweet bitter chocolate, roast coffee, and malt.

22 oz bottle purchased and consumed in Oregon. 7% ABV.
Pours dark brown, ending up essentially black.
Fruit and dark roasted grains in the aroma.
Dark roasted grains with some char longer in the mildly bitter aftertaste. Unfortunate sourness.

oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2016
Bottled (thanks MT). Black colour with a mediumsized beigeish brown head. Aroma is liquorice, some rye, chocolate and mild roasted notes with some toffee to it as well. Flavour is quite similar, and also has got some slight bitter grassiness to it. Tasty, and quite easy going. sulawang (1161) - - JUN 7, 2016
4oz taster @ VCBW 2016-Day 1. Creamy lvl-4 sweetness, full bodied mouthfeel. Luscious milk chocolate flavour, roasty off-dry mids. A touch sour in the background, bittersweet finish. Excellent beer and one the my Top 5s at the Vancouver craft beer fest. seynie (408) - Tienen, BELGIUM - JUN 7, 2016
Pitch black with a nice light brown creamy head. Coffee grind at first, espresso with a bit of cream, but after a while brown candi sugar balances it off. The noise promises more than we get though. More carbonation than the typical stout. Dry finish, mineral, coffee, cream and sugar again SeniorZozo (1843) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 7, 2016
Black beer with a nice beige head. Roasted malt aroma, caramel, soot, licorice, some coffee. Roasted malt and coffee flavor, licorice, viola notes. Nice stout. monk191 (1975) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 18, 2016
A good stout overall, if a hit basic. Pours a beautiful deep black with a tan head. Smells of vanilla and caramel, some cream. Taste is basic stout, with cream and vanilla, with a slightly dry finish. Had in the bottle.
