2016 bottle. Dark brown with a tan head. You almost get something different with each taste and it definitely develops on your tongue. Dark fruits, molasses, some ash, little black pepper, bourbon, all on a little roasted malt. Slightly dirty taste with a hint of sourness, sorta herbal and dank. On the thin side but has a little creaminess and the taste is complex enough that it makes it seem fuller. Not your typical stout, very interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2017 butelka, warka z 13/01/16 (BB 13/01/21) - znow majaca wiecej, bo 11.4%. B ciemny braz piwa, rachityczna piana szybko pozostajaca obraczka. Aromat intensywny, glownie kawa i palonosc, zreszta sama kawa tez o takim palonym do prawie czerni ziaren charakterze. Do tego dochodzi alko - wcale nie takie sympatyczne, acz z nutka ciemnych owocow delikatna. Nieco wanilii. kapinka pralin. W ustach pierwszy lyk to reakcja "o dzizas, jakie alkoholowe" - no hej, ja to na sniadanie pije, sadysci holenderscy!. Na szczescie usto szybko sie przyzwyczaja i caloksztalt w ustach sie szybko wyrownuje do podobnej rownowagi jak w aromacie. Niemniej alko nadal mocno obecne, nieco palace przelyk wrecz. Co by nie powiedziec Pracownia Piwa z tymi swoimi kawowymi wersjami 6th joseph street z kawa zrobila duzo lepsiejsza robote w temacie jak sobie zestawic. W ustach tez pojawia sie czekolada ktorej w aromacie mam wrazenie nie bylo. taka gorzka. W ogole piwo jest nieco slodkawe o dziwo, w sumie cholera wie, czemu, nie pasuje to do aromatu. Wysycenie symboliczne, goryczka... cholera wie, bo alkohol ja nadpisuje. Konsystencja nieco oleista, ale i tak ciezko powiedziec, ze ma duzo ciala. Bardzo dlugie posmaki (i znow - z alko). Sumarycznie to bdb piwo byloby, zeby nie alko... tak, to tylko fajne

On tap at El Bait Shop. Black appearance with a tan head. The aroma and flavor is rich, malty and moderately sweet with notes of chocolate and coffee. Medium to full body. Nicely done.

This is an 11.2 oz bottle with 11.6% ABV, so I’m not sure what year it is from. Smells like nice dark roast coffee with a hint of red wine, oak and plum. Slightly boozy scent. Shiny black color with the faintest trace of tan foam. The taste is very roasty, with heavy oak and some chocolate in the background. Some booze and hop/coffee bitterness in the aftertaste. A little rough, but all the elements of a great coffee stout are there. The beer pours out on the thin side, but the palate holds up pretty well when you drink it. I’m a big de Molen fan so I may be biased, but I thought this was pretty good.

Oh Draught, like a ßoss
Pours basically black without much of a head.

The aroma is sweet smelling with lots of toffee and some cocoa. It’s got a lot of raisin and a ever-present very-roasty coffee element. There is some brown sugar, there is some plum, there is more coffee.

The flavor is a nice glance of bitter roasty malts & sweet toffee and dark fruit forward maltiness. It’s got plenty of espresso, it’s got plenty of dark chocolate. It’s quite rich, it’s a touch sweeter than I wish it would be, and the booziness is pretty well controlled (although certainly noticeable)

OK!

A surprisingly dirty beer. I thought this would be a straightforward imperial stout, but it was a little sour. Hazy dark brown, deep dark fruit body. Tried with Brandon and Monica in 2016.

Fules (1233) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAY 27, 2016
Vékony, barna, gyorsan eltűnő habgyűrű, fekete szín. Feketekávés illatvilág, malátás alapokon. Feketekávé és pörkölt maláta dominál, melléjük enyhe gyümölcsös savanyú, komló és alkoholos melegség társul, de alkoholos ízt nem érezni szerencsére. Csak enyhén keserű, az is inkább a pörköléstől. Hosszú utóíze gyümölcsös savanykásságot terjeszti ki, enyhe keserűvel és némi kávés, feketecsokis aromákkal. Fincsi, és jól összeérett, itóka, de nekem kevesebb gyümölcsösséggel jobban bejönne. Testes, de érdekes módon nem nehéz sör.
