Pour is a very dark tan with a tiny little white head not much lace. Smell is very sweet like honey and fruitless with a slight roast. taste is cooked bananas coffee bitter roast and a mild hop presence. greenclansman (906) - Nicosia, CYPRUS - OCT 19, 2011
Black color, aromas of coffee and alcohol. Same in taste but the coffee is very strong. I like it in general, but I would prefer a fuller body and less coffee in taste. Perfect aroma though. gnoff (10336) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - OCT 16, 2011

Dark brown, almost black, with creamy dark tan reddish head. Great lacing. Rich choclaty, roasted coffee flavors. Nice alcohol warming. Just amazing. drowland (8676) - Georgia, USA - OCT 8, 2011
10/9/11. Bottle. Black pour, moreso dark brown under the light, with a small tan head that fades and doesn’t lace at all. Somewhat one-dimensional aroma of coffee, butterscotch, and tar. Over the top roasted coffee bitterness - intensely bitter and dark... it’s like licking realllllly burnt toast or something... lingers bitter on the palate for ages.

Black color. Odd toasty aroma and some vegetal notes. Rough flavor. Bitter, medicinal. Not very good. jonno (2761) - JAPAN - SEP 13, 2011
An odd one. Nose is wonderfully burnt and roasty - very impish. In the mouth the burnt flavour almost tastes off. Body is a tad oily and light for the style. The odd taste takes away from what no doubt could be a very solid stout.
