Taste and palate: full body, liquoreux but still creamy, thick, moderate carbonation, alcohol finish. Overall: awesome. Really love this one. This is strong but also so easy to drink at the same time. It feels thick but still easy to drink mReally great. The kind of beer that makes you happy. Really glad I got the chance to taste this one and hopefully can taste the BA one day. SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2016
Impénétrable liquide versé par Stoned99. Merci! Au nez, des papilles surexcitées par cette grosse structure maltée. Chocolat, café au caramel, dulche de lèche, pâte d’amande sucrée ou autres noix. Vanille mise en évidence après quelques minutes avec une présence feutrée d’alcool. Au goût, les fèves de cacao craquent sous ma langue tandis que la vanille rôtie est amère et coupe intelligemment la montée des sucres. En bouche, le corps est copieux, pétillant, huileux. En finale, chaleureuse et intense accolade de notes rôties et chocolatées. En plein mon style de bière de soif. Cybercat (5743) - Georgia, USA - JUL 21, 2016
Pours coffee sable just a flea’s eyebrow above black with a thick and persistent chocolate-brown head. Aroma delivers mouth-watering cocoa, roast malt, quality coffee, molasses, vanilla and semi-sweet chocolate notes. Rich flavor presents chocolate, roast malt, quality coffee, vanilla and molasses tones, almost like drinking a chocolate bar with coffee. There seems to be a hint of pepper, but it is subtle; overall, flavor is rather sweet but not cloying. Mouthfeel has thick, viscous body if not a lot of fizz. Make mine an Americano! rejtable (2624) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 20, 2016

650ml bottle from GT Package in Grovetown, shared with the Buzhardt Bunch. Black pour with a brown, rapidly fading, head. Aroma has chocolate, roast, cocoa, caramel, espresso. Taste is of sweet caramel, bakers chocolate, roast. Light lactose peeks through as well. Big flavor palate. Full bodied. The blend is well done. There is some alcohol presence. Lowly carbonated. Finishes in a battle between bitter and sweet, with the sweetness somehow beating the Americano bitterness. This is excellent! 17 Maakun (5405) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2016
Bottle shared thanks to RandomStrangerNL. Black with short lasting dark brown head. Massive roasted coffee, sweet dark chocolate, coffee liquor, bitter old wood, lots of roasted malts, light toffee. Over medium sweet and bitter. Almost full bodied with a bit slick feel. Very nice. Fujimo2000 (160) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 15, 2016
Thick dark pour with slowly dissipating brown lacing. Smells espresso, vanilla. No alcohol in the finish. Very nice rdixon77 (2763) - Georgia, USA - JUL 6, 2016
Spectacular stout. Thick black pour. Coffee, chocolate, roast, vanilla, some booze. Full bodied. Seems like it would be perfect for barrel aging...maybe I'll get to try one of those some time.
