Samact (37) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 1, 2016
Bière d’une obscurité profonde. Au nez ca sent le fudge et le café. En bouche c’est merveilleux. Un goût prononcé d’espresso se marie tries bien à la vanille, au fudge et au nougat. Une barre de chocolat au nougat dans un verre. Liquide visqueux et crémeux. faible carbonation. Excellente!

pfc514 (126) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUN 26, 2016
Pours black with a dark brown head that quickly fades. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts present. Flavor is similar to that of the aroma, with a hint of vanilla. Perfect thick, viscous mouthfeel, exactly how a stout should feel. Great beer.

PanMarek (301) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2016
Strong coffee nose with a little chocolate. Pours dark brown with thick brown foam. Complex favors of coffee balanced with some sweet chocolate. Full body with rich mouthfeel. The malt sweetness is tempered, so the taste is less heavy. A well-balanced stout.

mixmasterob (1054) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 21, 2016
Menacing black pour with a small dark brown head. Pretty pour. Huge aroma full of fudge, rich espresso, nouget, vanilla, like a melted candy bar. Flavors were equally rich with lingering sweetened cocoa, more coffee, bitter dark malt, lingering espresso like finish. Viscous mouthfeel, slick and super smooth. Lighter carbonation. Overall a really well done mega stout from CCB.

Bottle shared by Jeff. Pours a dark opaque black with a thin layer of brown head. Aroma and taste of burnt malts, coffee, and some vanilla. Nice.

Christpuncher (2909) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 15, 2016
Aroma is coffee and roasted grain. Absolutely splendid. Flavor is coffee, bitter and some vanilla. Incredibly smooth and well balanced. Pours like motor oil with s thick tan head. Incredible. Only way to make it better would be to barrel age it
