Near black pour. Aroma and flavor big on the coffee and chocolate, but ample malt and vanilla also present, and a light cherry/berry presence. Super smooth at a higher abv. Good stuff! nealblind (1979) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - NOV 18, 2017

on tap @ FFF. milk stout nose, chocolate and coffee both, creamy, subtle booze. Oakes (19045) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 2, 2017
Very dark. Not much head, though. Very chocolatey with a touch of coffee on the nose. Rich sweet malts, with lots of chocolate, and again the coffee in back. Not a lot of nuance, it’s sweet with a major/minor structure. mcberko (19222) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 27, 2017
Bottle at PIB 2017, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out lots of chocolate, light roast, and some coffee. Flavour is very chocolatey, with loads of cocoa and coffee, with medium roast. Extremely chocolatey, with a viscous palate. Excellent.

Dark brown black. Nose is sweet vanilla, cold press coffee. Taste is off dry, slightly sweet. Flavors of bakers cocoa, light vanilla, dark roast malts, light cold press coffee. Great balance. luttonm (6857) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 12, 2017
Chuck’s 85th, Seattle. Barrel Roller 2017. Moderately thick foam, mostly black body. Cocoa beans on nose, lots of high quality chocolate. Smooth balanced sip, light lactic and coffee beans an overtone to a warm cocoa base Stout. Great tasty balance. Bitter bite from cocoa and coffee. This works very well. rosskyle (777) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 29, 2017
500 ml bottle. Black color with a brown head. Sweet bourbon mocha aroma. Milk bourbon up front with a mocha booze finish. Heavy body. Very smooth with a lot flavour complexity.

500 ml bottle. Pours a black color with a large beige head. A lovely huge cascading nose of coffee, chocolate and just rich fudge like sweet notes. The flavor reminds me of the Abyss in many ways, big bourbon, much bigger (than the Abyss) coffee, cocoa, huge milky chocolates, vanilla. This is really lovely. A treat. Just decadent and up there with nearly any coffee forward Imperial Stout. Sort of subdued and drinkable in a way that is surprising and welcome. neepsntatties (2070) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 1, 2017
On tap at Beer O’Clock in Portland. Colour...very dark brown with a thick tan head. Nose...nice coffee hit as well as dark brambly fruits and cocka mass. Palate...tangy, tight and brooding with coffee, there’s cocoa on the mid palate and the finish is long and full of cold brew coffee notes.
