One note very coffee-dominant stout, but it does that one note pretty well. Not as complex or interesting as the best coffee stouts though.

Mesjasz (1231) - Lodz, POLAND - JAN 9, 2017
Sampel butelki w Chmielarni. W aromacie owoce, paloność, czekolada, praliny. W smaku słodkie, kawowe i czekoladowe, z lekkimi nutami owoców, wanilii. Świetne piwo.

Bottle thanks to in-laws: Poured a dark black with a tan head. Very huge sweet chocolate nose. Taste is rich chocolate, light coffee, and vanilla.

ciocanelu (1724) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - NOV 1, 2016
Pitch black color, mocha head. Aroma has dark malts, green coffee beans and even some peppers. Taste starts also with the green coffee/pepper, solid sweet malt backbone, roasted coffee on the finish with a light bitterness. Really heavy body with smooth mouthfeel. Really good one with the excellent Cigar City mouthfeel.

mariuspoenari (1929) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 30, 2016
Bottle shared. Pitch black pour with a thick espresso head. Notes of roasted coffee beans, sherry, molasses, subtle peppers, dark chocolate, cocoa. Full body, smooth texture, light carbonation and a roasty chocolatey bitter-sweet finish.

ChainGangGuy (4860) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - OCT 29, 2016
22 ounce bottle - $13.99 at Bullock’s Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia. Appearance: Pours out a viscous, motor oil-esque body, black, though with no real head formation. Smell: A roasty-toned aroma with chunks of bittersweet chocolate pitted with notes of prune juice, oozing molasses and a couple drops of soy. Taste: Starts with dark chocolate sauce, then that molasses, a sliver of booze and bitter coffee flavors amidst ashen roast. Dark fruitiness. As with the aroma, a bit of soy. Sweet, roasty finish certainly with some warming qualities. Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium-low carbonation. Sticky mouthfeel. Overall: Not to be missed? Well, it’s fine. A beer which is just fine.

pushkinwow (2716) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2016
Bottle at 2016 Big Deck Tasting. Dark brown with a thin mocha head. Hints of chilli pepper, dark and bittersweet chocolate, roasted malts, incredibly smooth, cocoa powder, vanilla bean, light booziness. Full body and mild carbonation, bitter but balanced, easy to drink but glad the bottle was shared as couldn’t drink an entire one.
