sebletitje (9706) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 21, 2017
Big ass 32oz crowler, courtesy of Ibrew2or3 and hauled all the way to Belgium by Buckeyeboy, then off to Niger, Africa. Brune fonce, col pais et tenace crmeux caf au lait. Arme est plaisamment bien torrfi sans jamais tomber dans lexcs, ce dernier se retrouve pas mal au niveau de la mousse. La vanille est, quant elle, plus discrte et subtile apportant une petite pointe de douceur en rtro-nasal. Rtro porte aussi qcq effluves de chocolat, le houblon perce discrtement confrant des pointes de fraicheur. Palais est malt, grill superbement bien torrfi avec une base vanille qui apporte une bonne balance. Amertume portant un effet houblonn noble balance le tout et est accompagne de notes herbaces. Je note aussi un lger ct malt pils et cet effet mtallique malt-grains ple, cara. Effet de grains de caf concasss.

Rastacouere (6176) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 13, 2017
Intensely perfumey sweet stout with lots of vanilla in the nose and subtle, never too hard coffee notes. Lasting light tan slice of foam. Round in mouth in spite of a watery feeling in mouth. Not particularly malty despite the roasted components. I could not pick up the oatmeal dose at all. Really geared toward the aromatic vanilla, even more so than the coffee which remains very well integrated and soft, gently smokey, just lightly roasty with no astringency at all and minimal acidity. I can see how this is a crowd pleasure, its a seductive flavour profile.

solidfunk (8358) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 18, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2017 Light coffee like old stains on your workdesk. Dark brown pour with decent head. Good mix but a little overrated - nowhere near as good as their brown ales. Some roast and a nudge of vanilla. Tap at Churchkey.

ajnepple (6015) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2017
On tap at the brewery. Black appearance with a lacy tan head. Aroma of fresh coffee, bitter chocolate, roasted malt and a hint of vanilla. Similar flavor, rich, gourmet coffee flavor leading to a bittersweet finish over medium body. Quite nice, a little overly bitter, perhaps, but very good overall.
