Holy smokes, this is a great brew! Second only to the Kentucky Breakfast in my book.
Dark and foreboding, this coffee laden stout hits the spot. Loads of dark strong coffee and chocolate both in the aroma and flavor make this a memorable brew.
I loved it and wish I had access to this one .
Black, a bit oily looking, nice foamy, dark tan head. Aroma has malts, dark chocolate and some other sweet tones. Taste is a bit sweet, lots of roasted malts and coffee. Light bitter finish. Slick mouthfeel, soft carbonation, really smooth mouthfeel. Very, very good. FraekkeFyr87 (545) - - JUN 28, 2017
The aroma is full of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, toffee, caramel and roasted malts. The color is pitch black. The taste is full of chocolate, roasted malts, dark fruits, caramel, toffee, roasted coffee, dark chocolate, booze and dried fruits. The mouthfeel is silky and smooth with a nice creaminess. The carbonation is also very nice. I can’t believe this is my first time trying this legendary stout but better late than never, I guess. A nice beer! JLlunell (76) - Sabadelll, SPAIN - JUN 26, 2017

Jet black with small espresso head. Nose is medium roasted coffeee, cocoa nibs, vanilla, dried plums, coffee liquor. Taste is sweet and malty. Upfront there are notes of coffee and cocoa. Towards the end the coffee notes intensify and combine with a delicate boozy warming. Amazingly smooth for such ABV. While gently present, alcohol is very well hidden. Sticky mouthfeel, low carbonation. Just great. justsayswell (277) - Kansas City, Kansas, USA - JUN 24, 2017
Jet black pour with a massive chocolate latte head. Nose is cocoa, dark chocolate, vanilla, coffee, hazelnut, raisin.
Really smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Taste is initial malty and coffee bitterness, then vanilla sugar, dark caramel, a faint hint of bourbon whiskey. Finish is bittersweet with a little earthy hops. This beer is just unbelievably smooth and drinkable for 12% abv. Really great stout.

Piana średnio wysoka, brązowa, niezbyt trwała, redukuje się poziomu obwoluty wokół kieliszka. Zostawia lacing. W aromacie bardzo dużo kawy i czekolady. Czuć nuty pralin belgijskich i odrobinę alkoholowości. W smaku wyjątkowo gładkie i kremowe. Wybitne czekoladowe i słodkie. Czuć również kawę i delikatny karmel. Byłoby idealnie gdyby nie przebijający delikatnie alkohol. Gęste, likierowe, nisko nagazowane. Bardzo dobre! culchiem (3929) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 20, 2017
Can from City Beers, shared with Urbansprawl on their birthday. Jet black with a tan head. Aroma of licorice, toasted malt, coffee. Taste is coffee, burnt chocolate, vanilla, creamy malt mouth, really good! AgentAle (1727) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 19, 2017
Aroma is roasted malts, toffee, licorice and coffee. The palette is intense caramel, tossed oats, fig and espresso. The transition is to a slight earthiness and creaminess. Slight alcohol and warmth on end but not as harsh as I expected . Appearance is a jet back body with a thin beige head that retains OK. tapefuzz (480) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 18, 2017
750mL bottle. Pours black with a small light tan head. Aroma is coffee, cocoa, alcohol, sweet malt, and a little vanilla. Taste is coffee, caramel, light vanilla, roast, and a little cocoa. Good amount of booze on the tongue. Full body. Soft carbonation. Creamy, rich mouthfeel. evjoker (6) - - JUN 16, 2017 does not count
Just perfect. Dark and creamy without being overwhelming or too heavy. The palate hits you but also doesn't overwhelm. The coffee is delicious and pairs well with everything.
