Another huge thanks to bman1113vr for sharing this bottle at the pre Big Texas Beer Fest tasting.
Black pour with a tan head. The aroma is full of coffee and chocolate notes with a hint of roasted malt. The flavor is more of the same. I get some great, rich, nutty coffee notes as well as some milk chocolate and roasted malt. The alcohol is very well hidden. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Outstanding.

Bottle. Dark brown color with beige head. Aroma is fruity, espresso ground, black chocolate, metallic. Taste is espresso, black chocolate, metallic again. Very well-balanced. Nice, but a bit metallic - maybe a bit too old. DutchDrebus (6093) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - APR 19, 2014

Smells amazing, very roasty and coffee bitter. Great beer, amazing aroma, alesmith again crushes it JulienHuxley (5909) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2013
Bottle. Opaque black pour with thick tan foam, very pretty. Aroma is a bit destabilizing. I was expecting a nice roasty coffee aroma, instead I get a really weird vegetal bomb like wet grass. After a couple of sniffs, things start to settle down and I perceive some chocolate/fudge and light, unroasted coffee notes. Still, the whole thing is a bit disturbing. Taste is more inline with what you’d expect from a coffee stout except this one was super bitter, lots of roasted coffee bitterness, acrid and somewhat unpleasant. Drinkable, but very difficult - I couldn’t tackle a 750 by myself, that’s for sure.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2013 75cl, at 12%Vol, exclusive American brew, with coffee, from De Hopduvel Gent, very complex Stout, roasted/bitter and slightly spicy/fruity, yet not too heavy, balanced, hazy, rocky head, very good brew, yet very expensive! burg326 (5594) - Florida, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Poured dark black with aromas of coffee, earth, coffee, chocolate, and more coffee. Flavors were the same heavy on the coffee, tasted like fresh coffee with some light chocolate and earth nice thickness as well. Thanks Hunter for sharing the fresh growler with me.

Sample at O’Brien’s. Man, the coffee in this is so freaking good, the blend is so complex, probably the best coffee I have ever smelled. I could just smell this beer, it is so delicious. Flavor is also dominated by roasted coffee, with side notes of milk chocolate, nuts, and light vanilla. Creamy mouth feel, with the abv completely hidden. Damn good.

Noir et épais. Le liquide montre aussi une belle mousse brune. Au nez, enrobants arômes de café, de chocolat, de caramel, de réglisse, de houblons, de torréfaction et de charbon de bois. Au goût, les saveurs de café poivré et de malts sont grandement appréciées par mes papilles. En bouche, le corps du liquide est moyen-fort avec un pétillement ajusté et une texture huileuse. En finale, une amertume fabriquée par le café et une chaleureuse accolade de l’alcool.

Ratebeer is making me do it again, another review from memory after this one got dumped from their data-base (the double coffee speedway ought to count too, but this site has become as childish as yelp). I remember this one as having a more distinct coffee taste from the original and a smoother roundness to the texture and taste.
