corkyrory66 (1714) - BELGIUM - FEB 19, 2017
Imperial coffee stout, de 10 % abv, pour rien moins que 23,7 plato (merci) et ebu de 81. Malts pils, cara, roast. Mono houblonnage en premiant. Du caf en plus, sous forme de grains, on prsume. Couleur noir intense (240 ebc), lopacit quasi totale. Mousse qui se rduit des traces brunes en surface. Armes de caf sortant du moulin, malt fortement rti un peu comme chez le torrfacteur. 1re bouche souple, la belle entame caf/malt. Arrire-bouche sur un caf de grand-mre, quand elle dcidait de le faire fort, le dimanche vers 15 heures surtout 2me la trs belle suite avec du chocolat noir. Arrire-bouche trs prgnante, forte, et trs belle. 3me avec beaucoup de douceur dans la texture qui fait la balance avec un fort caractre. Arrire-bouche longue, complexe. Longueur qui va dtailler, si je puis dire, grain par grain, pour vous expliquer ce quest un bon caf .. On coute et on est captiv!!! Jambes fines, trs longues. Levure fine, boise, trs belle ligne. Alcool trs efficace, il cadre la longueur pour lexploiter au maximum. Finale avec des baies noires et une texture superbe. CONCLUSION: un imprial stout trs ax sur le caf, mais le brasseur avait averti .. Donc caf averti en vaut trois .. et quand on sappelle mout & mocca, on ne peut pas faire dans la dentelle ...

McWorta (1594) - LUXEMBOURG - FEB 11, 2017
Black with a lightly tan head, good lacings. Aromas of coffee/mocha, roasted malts, dark chocolate and a light dark fruit note develop. Surprisingly tangy up front, developing a light smoothness with a short sweetness and pronounced roast bitterness and delicate coffee acidity. Lasting finish and hides its abv well.

Tmoney99 (14000) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 26, 2017
Bottle. Poured dark brown with a moderate creamy tan head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy toasted chocolate and coffee with a small alcohol aroma. medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted chocolate malt flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer.

Beersiveknown (5148) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JAN 7, 2017
2013 bottling at home from EU local swap, from i think benzai, cheers!
tonnes of coffee on the nose of this but looking at ingredients list no sign of it having been included, so good use of malts. Chocolate, cocoa, toast, coffee flavour, medium bodied, deceptive drinkability, light carbonation, fruity coffee finish. good stuff, saved best til last

ContemplateBeer (2050) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 21, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2016 11.2 oz. bottle shared with Boo; from Louisville Beer Store; bottle dated 8/5/15; funny enough, its at 11.6%, even though the 2015 bottles are supposed to be 10% again. Aroma: Moderate coffee roast to the fore with slightly lesser peanut butter fudge with a chocolate drizzle. Appearance: Dark garnet near black with a bubbly tan head that settles into a ring. Flavor: Drier chocolate with an undercurrent of coffee roast up front; peanut lingers on with some light bitterness towards the finish. The coffee here is reminiscent of Brazil Cerrado, which has often reminded me of roasted peanuts. Palate: Medium body, slick texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: The coffee cherry character here is really well done, and sets it apart from examples that showcase only the roast notes. A stout Id recommend to any coffee lover.

Dyum (13) - - DEC 19, 2016
W nosie zapach świeżo zmielonej kawy, palonych ziaren, do tego taka waniliowa słodycz, alkohol, mimo 10% z zaledwie 237 plato niewyczuwalny. Jeśli już to pachnie lekko likierowo po dłuższym ogrzaniu. W smaku mocno słodkie, delikatnie przełamane paloną goryczką kawy parzonej. Ten kawowy posmak pozostaje na języku niemal przez cały czas. Ujawnia się też całkiem sporo wanilii. Przy czym piwo nie przypomina jakiejś kawy z cukrem, ale prędzej kawę waniliową, lekko posłodzoną. Alkohol głwnie ogrzewa przełyk, ale momentami rwnież nieprzyjemnie szczypie w język. Ciało, jak się można przy takim poziomie odfermentowania spodziewać, zbytnio nie zachwyca. Piwo, gdyby nie całkiem wysokie nagazowanie, można by wręcz uznać za wodniste. To chyba największa bolączka tego stouta. Noi momentami przeszkadzająca alkoholowość. Poza tym wszystko na plus, szczeglnie przyjemne nuty wanilii i mocno kawowy posmak.

Bulk_Carrier (4492) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - DEC 14, 2016
Poured into a snifter, the appearance was a black color with a quickly dissipating fingers worth of white to off white foamy head that left a sly speckled lace. The aroma blends wonderfully between the roasty coffee to the sweet milk and dark chocolate. Dark fruits do play ever so subtle. The flavor, once again, blends wonderfully between the sweet and the roast. Adds a touch of ash, and then the dark fruits pop in underneath. Semi-sticky sweet to roasty aftertaste with a sly sticky sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Perhaps a bit thinner than expected but I do see a 2015 bottling date, so no harm no foul on the feel, it just smoothed out a lot more. Overall, nicely aged RIS, sure a bit thinner in the feel but this is an aged review and I dont think its fair to under rate for style since this is an older bottle.

mezr (115) - California, USA - DEC 4, 2016
Poured from a bottle into a snifter. Dark, almost black with tan film for a head. Aroma is pronounced roasted coffee, chocolate and a hint of smokiness. Medium body and rather thick on the palate. Soft carbonation and some stickiness to it. Taste is sweet coffee and chocolate, then lightly bitter with a long finish.
