Valgreen (768) - - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle @ unibaren, 20 / 7 2013. Dark clear brown, not a lot of head or lacing. Aroma, used coffe filter (and i mean that in the best way), roasted malts, bitter chocolate, some alcohol. Taste, bitter coffee, roasted malts, chocolate, . Bitter dry coffee aftertaste. Good mouth feel, not too much carbonation. The aroma is amazing, I dont know how you make old coffee smell good, but they do.

ChrisRR (81) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2017
Tap at Taphouse. Pours a nice dark brown/black color. Aroma is of coffee grounds and malts. A bit disappointing aroma. Taste is much better very smooth, coffee, dark malts with some sweetness.

Faathoven (100) - Barcellona P.G., ITALY - MAR 6, 2017
Pours dark brown with no head at all. Aroma of roasted coffee, carafa malts, dried plums, brown sugar, some smokiness. Flavour is quite sweet up front, then the roastiness comes to balance. I can distinctly detect the carafa malts as if I was crushing them in my mouth. And this gives a good amount of smokiness to the flavour. Unfortunately, in sum, the taste is quite boring, and the aftertaste is loosened. Medium body, oily texture, soft to flat carbonation. Alcohol (11,6% on the label) well hidden. Enjoyable for almost half bottle. Then...

GuideDogSaint (1291) - Xiamen, CHINA - FEB 28, 2017
330ml bottle at House of Belgium, Xiamen. Bottled 2016 and labelled as 11.4%. Pours dark brown black with a minimal head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Similar taste, sweet with some bitterness. Nice but lacking a little something.

corkyrory66 (1772) - 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 (1601) - 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.

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 (5196) - 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
