COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Five different dark grains, molasses and freshly roasted African coffee beans went into this rich and decadent sweet-stout. This beer is unfiltered and matured in the bottle and will continue to improve for the next 2-3 years. After fermentation a portion of the beer was matured on medium-toast french oak providing subtle hints of vanilla and coconut.
Pour carefully to avoid disturbing the sediment.

ALLOVATE (2981) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 18, 2013
At just on cool and into a snifter. Produces the darkest of brown with little evident carbonation and a quickly diminishing head. Molasses, bonfire ash, fresh strapped leather, cocoa butter and milk chocolate dominate the nose with a touch of lightly roasted coffee and Ovaltine . Sweet, juicy, rounded and malty on the palate. Roasted coffee bean, cocoa and roasted carob, a hint of nutmeg, mace, raw timber, rich molasses. Body is on the lighter side but adequate; it is rounded and flavoursome enough. Finishes dry and yields that alcohol well. Id be drunkenly mistaken for quaffing a lighter stout. Easy drinking and deceptively strong, but nothing more! (33cL, BB 01/11/13, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

Im Duft leicht malzkaffeeartig, slich-hopfig. Antrunk slich-malzig. Mitte stark bitter und kaffeeartig, schokoladig. Kaffeebitter abebbend mit leichter Alkoholspur. Gut.

POLK (2219) - Hrning, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2012
2012: 3.5 cm sediment in this 33 oz bottle unacceptable. Otherwise, a delicious well roasted coffee stout (could use more coffee flavor) wonderfully delicious creamy oily mouthfeel. A lot of residual sweetness and light mocha palate.

davidm (2079) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle from Slowbeer. Great nose. Aromas of coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, and long length. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Black, with a frothy head.

BeerBaboon (2071) - FINLAND - JUL 24, 2011
Tm lienee ensimminen koskaan juomani olut Afrikan mantereelta. Vriltn olut on pikimustaa ja muodostaa mukavan, vaalean ruskean vaahdon. Tuoksussa on kahvia, vaniljaa, melassia ja paahtunutta mallasta. Maultaan olut on hieman makea, nautinnollisen kahvinen, vaniljainen ja hieman paahtunut. Paksu ja ljyinen suutuntuma. Melko herkullinen olut, vaikke ihan tyylilajin krkikastiin kuulukaan,

Nice roasted flavor with some sweetness and bitterness. Farely "light" in flavor. Very dark brown in color with a creamy head.

Japalo (1874) - DENMARK - JUL 1, 2011
Bottle. Black with small beige head. Fat oily body. Roasted cereals with pronounced coffee aromas. Round sweet dry palate. Strong coffee brew prefer more bitterness to sweetness like Beer Geek Brunch.
