dark pour with very little head. Coffee flavor was evident on a very light body. It says stout, but drinks much more like an ale. Had a bitter backend that I did not enjoy.

CanCrusher (1031) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle 0,33L. Thanks to Kita for sharing. Black colour with light brown, frothy head. Very good aroma of strong dark coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts, caramel and brown sugar. Taste sterts light acidic and ends light bitter with strong coffee flavor. Medium to full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Good one!

Tasted on January 13, 2013: A: A very dark brown/black color when poured and has about an inch of foam that remains very well. S: Very strong chocolate aroma right up front. Coffee scent isnt as strong, but still there. I smell something else that I cant distinguish. Im assuming its the chicory since im not sure what that smells like. T: Very strong chocolate notes right off that bat. Coffee notes are stronger in the taste then in the smell. Coffee has a burnt flavor to it. There is a very noticeable cream taste in the end. M: Long lasting coffee taste that stays on the palate. A rather creamy texture left in my mouth. Not heavy in the mouth at all. O: Im not the biggest fan of stouts, but I find this one rather enjoyable. If im in the mood for a strong coffee tasting stout in the winter, ill give this one another go. Serving type: bottle

Erzengel (8231) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2013
Rating from 2009. Rstmalziger, schokoladiger Geruch, tiefschwarze Farbe. Der Antrunk ist rstmalzig-schokoladig, sehr sffig, aber etwas wssrig. Im Hauptteil ist das Bier angenehm rstmalzig, schokoladig-mild, ganz leicht suerlich.
--> ein sehr leckeres Stout, aber nichts Besonderes!

Notes from 2011 -- Bottles pours a dark opaque black with small tan head. Black malt scent with earthy esthers. Coffee flavor roasted malt, hint of nuttiness. Easy drinker.

Frothmeister (758) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours black with a head the colour of espresso foam. The nose has big fudgy cocoa notes with coffee underneath, light ash, light citrus, and hot chocolate. Medium bodied with dark coffee flavours, cocoa, woody notes, light caramel, and light smokiness in the finish. This is easy drinking, and just plain awesome. As far as session stouts go, this might be the best Ive ever had.

Brentv (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Poured from the bottle a very dark brown with a reddish tint. Aroma is chocolate and roasted malts. Flavor is semisweet with chocolate and a bit spicy. Odd. Its complex and interesting, and I would drink it again, but I wont seek it out and buy it.

12oz bottle into glass. Smokey, chicory coffee nose, which carries through in this full bodied stout with a perfectly smooth finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ClassyBeagle (376) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 30, 2013
FROM NOTES: July 1, 12 Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a DFH glass. A: A yeast smell on the nose with some dark malts, but not really a coffee smell. A: Pours mostly black with some ruby highlights and a two-finger off-white head. The fizzy head quickly depletes into minimal lacing. T: Better than the nose, but still short on the chicory part of chicory stout. Opens with a dark fruit type of flavor and finishes dry and bitter. P: Medium bodied and a maybe over a bit to carbonated for the style. O: A very average and drinkable stout, but average is not what I expected from DFH.
