12 ounces glass on tap shared with brother. Aroma: lots of raw coffee beans, roasted malt, chocolate, ashes. App: dark brown with red tint, small mocha head leaving nice lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, some tobacco in mouth as well, light roasted bitter finish. Overall: good stuff. Enjoyed the nose a bit me then the taste. It’s a tiny bit watery. Also there is a bit too much ashes to my taste but overall this is good. Bebum (1101) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 30, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2017 Opaque. Big coffee nose. Full body, assertive flavor, hot and lean mouthfeel, long, weak and stern aftertaste. Bitter, crisp, very dry. Strong, domineering and austere roast flavor of roast barley, coffee. Big but severe, can't have a lot of it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone Quick3Beers (1465) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - APR 25, 2017
Pours black from a tap. Ridiculous cloying sweet coffee syrup smell and flavor, almost unpalatable. asheft (3111) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2017

Sweet, iced dark coffee with milk aroma and a little pine and funk. Opaque black under a bubbly, beige, lacy collar. Potent bitter coffee and roasted barley flavour with almost assertive bitterness and accents of pine resin and dried, dark fruit. Medium body, moderate carbonation, fairly crisp.
EBF Boston 2017. Une robe brune foncée avec une mousse beige. Un nez de café frais moulu, de grain de café de machine à torréfier. Très belle bouche, légèrement plus mince qu’un imperial stout. Une touche de chocolat parmi ce café intense.

Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a super dark brown color almost black in color with a good two finger off white to tan foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Big clingy well ringed foamy lace. gregwilsonstl (2692) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 13, 2017
The aroma had a soft sweet espresso to coffee bean rich roastiness flowing evenly over some vanilla nibs. Light ash, and some wood. Roasty chocolate nibs at the end.
The flavor blends the sweet to the roast. The vanilla and espresso meld to meet the roast, fully flavored and touching down upon the aftertaste well balanced. Glides right on into the finish very nicely.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Good carbonation. ABV seemed just a tad under than what was projected by the brewer.
Overall, if this the blend of the Norweald and another one of their stouts, well, it definitely smoothed out Norweald extremely nice as the ruggedness from that beer seemed barely there in this one.
Plenty of espresso. Thick beige lacing. Medium body. One of the better coffee stouts Ive had. Thx Patrick. ClarkVV (6893) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 25, 2017

Clear, medium mahogany with auburn tints and a light tan head atop showing moderate retention.
Rich, but not overly burnt/charred coffee in the nose is augmented by moderate roasted barley and a good backing of base malt creating a solid caramel foundation. Very clean; no staleness, vegetal or beany character from the coffee. No alcohol noted.
Quite light-bodied for its size, though not thin. Flavorful, rather fruity coffee with sweet vanilla and caramel character. Engaging carbonation and ample roast balancing, with more coffee, molasses and caramel lingering.
On draft. This stout doesn’t mess around -- it’s full bodied, full flavored, and full of coffee. There’s enough malt sweetness and body to balance out the coffee bitterness, giving it a great back-and-forth pull between chocolate and espresso. Wow, this is good.

Keg at the brewery. Dark brown, large creamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of big roasty coffee. Taste is coffee, chocolate, roast, hints of cherry. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness.
