Served in a Teku glass from a 500ml bottle. Pours very dark opaque brown colour with a thick beige head, nice lacing in the glass. Aroma is coffee, molasses, earth. Taste is coffee, roasted malts, slightly bitter pleasant aftertaste. Medium body with medium carbonation. Very very nice coffee infused dark beer! I will be seeking more of it without doubt!

willisread (2807) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - JUN 25, 2016
Bottle shared. Thanks Shuichi! Big and bold espresso and roasted coffee notes up front and dominate throughout, but a bit of dark chocolate as it warms. Light body and easy drinking, really tastes like a coffee at room temperature and the mouthfeel is really nice. Finish is roasty but clean. Amazing for 4.2 percent.

Metalchopz (3134) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 13, 2016
Pours an almost black colour with a mocha head, good retention and some creamy lacing. Roasted malt aromas with some nice coffee. The flavours shows more the coffee over the roasted malts with hints of chocolate. Seems watered-down, because of the low alcohol content, but overall, a nice coffee stout.
