Espresso and Stout. A bewitching blend of two rich, roasted flavours. We use the finest fresh coffee to enhance the decadent pleasure of this dark and complex beer. Black as sin and just as much fun.

Grumbo (2526) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2017
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Poured very dark brown with a lasting beige coloured head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, touch of vanilla and dark fruit. Medium sweetness, toward heavy roasted coffee bitterness. Medium body, slight oily texture, carbonation bit too lively.

dogbomb (1210) - ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2016
Bottle. Dark brown/black ale with a thin brown head. Nose is creamy, coffee and chocolate with a spot of whisky. Taste is watery than I thought it would be, but its nice and smooth. Drinks easily and is quite tasty :)

Antzrhere (181) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2016
Pours jet black. Strong burnt roast coffee taste with abit of caramel. Missing a strong malt backbone. Although the coffee is nicely done and certainly delivers on the promised flavour, i find it a little one dimensional for my taste. Not bad, not great, probably better than average and certainly not lacking in flavour intensity.

12oz bottle pours a muddy dark brown/black with some clumpy, khaki head. Nose has malt, toast, some mild coffee bean, black pepper, chocolate. Flavor has black pepper, a little roasted mushroom, even some roasted tomato, malt, coffee bean. Finishes dry, a touch spritzy/spicy. OK.

Coffee nose, lacklustre head and jet black. Sweet coffee and caramel taste with after roasted malt. Not bad but certainly not great.

Gravicask (PBF2013, Tuesday)
Wonderful coffee aroma, nice fresh coffee, not stale grounds. Taste also has lots of coffee, and fortunately no beaniness. Very full palate. Some vanilla in the finish. Remarkably drinkable given howhow huge the roast is. Lots of burnt malts, but no astringency. Coffee used very well. If you have to use adjuncts, do it like this.

MrBlueSky93 (524) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2015
Bottle from Bier Huis. Pours dark brown almost black in colour with a single finger tan coloured head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, dark fruits, raisins, herb. Taste of initial dark roasted malts, toffee, caramel, then we have chocolate, heavy carbonation, coffee, smoky flavours, some dark fruits. Nice.
