UPDATED: OCT 8, 2017 Draft at Mon Petit Cafe, Stuttgart. Wow. Has everything that the standard BBA does, but also amazing sweet coffee notes which add to perfection.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2017 Bottle shared at home, kind courtesy of Maakun. Black with thin light tan head. Loads of deep roasted chocolate malts, coconut, vanilla, licorice, tiramisu, brownies, surprisingly little coffee at first. Later some pronounced coffee berries and hazlenutty coffee notes rise up. Velvety smooth speedway style supple full body, amazing. Massive sweet and mild bitterness. Soft carbonation. Great mouthfeel, lovely aromas. Very nice!!

Bottle shared. Black with light brown head. Huge dark chocolate, sweet vanilla bourbon, roast, sweet coffee, lots of toffee, fudge, brownies, some coconut, some cinnamon and other spices, soft alcohol. Quite sweet and under medium bodied. Almost full bodied with soft carbonation but it's not super thick which makes it huge drinkeable. Very very nice beer.

Vighals (4343) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - SEP 11, 2017
Svart med lys brunt høyt skum. Mye kaffe i lukt, lakris, toast, trevirke og noe vanilje. Fyldig. Kaffe dominerer også i smak, kjenner alkoholen godt. Søtlig mot honning, vaniljen er der også, sammen med en lakris som tipper mer mot salmiakkliakris. Lang avslutning. Alkohol og kaffe. (The Beavertown Extravaganza 2017).

Sampled at Beavertown Extravaganza. Coffee, toast, vanilla nose. Flavour is chocolate vanilla sweet with dry earth coffee finish. One of the highlights.

PAKK 2017 - Dominująca kawa, mnóstwo gorzkiego kakao, bourbon, espresso, krówki, kukułki. Dobrze ułożone, dobry balans pomiędzy słodyczą beczki a wytrawną goryczką. Łączna 4.5

Strong coffee & bourbon on the nose; earthy, smoky, dark-roast coffee with that sweet bourbon in the back. Full, mouth-coating body. Coffee and dark chocolates lead the way to provide a bitter, smoky base. Some dark sugar sweetness (caramel/brown sugar) in the middle and bourbon to finish. Overall, a delicious coffee-forward stout with enough sweetness and chocs to add balance & variety; bourbon is the cherry on top. Beautiful beer for the coffee fanatics!

Shared at RBAG 2017 - thanks kbudd. Pours dark with a thin tan head which does not last very long. Avenues of gummy alcohol run down the glass after every pull. Lots of coffee and toasted malt aromas assisted by oatmeal and dark chocolate. Taste is coffee and roasted grains; I can pick out oatmeal and rye most prevalently. The alcohol is present but not a feature.
