czar (9971) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2018
on tap at griendel, qc. unclear very dark brown pour with a very creamy light beige cap offering good retention and lacing. lots of dark coffee, almost smoked beans, kind of vegetal ground coffee, underlying burnt caramel, yet some complex layers of it, some sweetness - chocolate coulis if not molasses; english yeast. moderately low carbonation, medium to full body - very oily; sweet but not never cloying coffee-spicy finish. a complex almost smoked northern imperial stout that is probably really fun when fresh, for its coffee component. enjoyed!

Apparence : Noire, léger col brun, carbonatation moyenne.
Nez : Café, malt grillé.
Goût : Café, malt grillé, légère acidité du café en finale avec une amertume moyenne. Léger aspect sucré pouvant rappeler le chocolat plutôt foncé.
Sensation : Corps et carbonatation moyennes, bonne longueur.
Bref : Pas décevante, cette offrande ne passera tout de même pas à l’histoire; manque quelque peu de corps, un nez plus invitant que la bouche qui présente pourtant les mêmes arômes, mais avec une touche d’acidité décuplant les notes brûlées de la bière. C’est bon, c’est sur le café, mais peut-être pas l’intégration bière-café la plus réussie.

Whatup14 (2293) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 19, 2018
Bouteille 330ml. Couleur noire opaque, mousse moka. Arôme de café plutôt vert (presque poivron vert), cacao, malt torréfié. Goût de café, légère acidité, malt torréfié, infime amertume. Carbonatation moyenne-faible, corps moyen-dense.

Kauge (2231) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 17, 2018
Bottle from Alcostock. Bottled 04.01.2017; BB 04.01.2037. Having it too soon maybe, but it inclued coffee, so maybe the sooner the better, despite the BB date? Loads of delicious fresh ground coffee in aroma, in the flavour the coffee is a bit biting even, but still very good, with a sweet chocolaty undertone. Wow, such a delicious and stimulating brew! Perfect to sip at 2 A.M. I'm really digging this!

Inoven (1143) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - MAR 13, 2018
Flesje gedeeld door Tomhendriksen en gedronken met Benzai. Zwart bier met beige schuim dat snel weg trekt. Aroma van koffie en kuilvoeder. Smaak is zoet en fruitig van donker fruit en nasmaak van hop.

TomHendriksen (1250) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 13, 2018
Fles gedeeld met Inoven en Benzai. Het een zwart bruin bier met een dunne bruine schuimkraag. Het heeft een rare turfachtige geur. De smaak is duidelijk koffie, espresso. Het heeft een wat dik mondgevoel.

alex_leit (5784) - Minsk, BELARUS - FEB 28, 2018
Bottle 33 cl. Almost black color with coffee foam. Strong coffee aroma, bird cherry, caramel and chocolate. Bright coffee taste, a little brandy & caramel.

suurjuust (4056) - ESTONIA - FEB 10, 2018
330ml bottle. Dark brown to black beer, small beige head. Beany nose, roast, coffee, chocolate, cocoa. Flavor is beany coffee, but luckily not that beany, chocolate sweetness, hoppy bitterness and more beans in the finish. Not bad, but the beans, man, the beans.

ha1ag (981) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 3, 2018
Bottled in Servaas, Mestreech on its last open day. Black beer with a thin dark beige head. Strong choco nose. The aroma is roast malt, toffee, dark chocolate chili. The flavor is sweet with dry roasted bitter finish. Alcohol comes through.

@ Billie's Beer Kafetaria. Dark stout with a herbal coffee aroma. Taste is rather herbal. Coffee in taste. Herbal. Roast. A tad artificial aftertaste.
