COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The coffee lover’s consummate beer. Brewed with an abundance of flaked oats, bitter and imported chocolates and two types of coffee, this stout has an intense fresh-roasted java nose topped with a frothy, cinnamon-colored head that goes forever.

rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - OCT 29, 2012
2011 vintage. 12oz bottle into a tulip. Pours a thick opaque black like used motor oil. Really no head at all and just a thin ring around the top of the beer. Aroma of is rich coffee and chocolate like a cappuccino. Some roasted character along with caramel and toffee. Also a touch of vanilla; a very inviting aroma. The flavor is even better. Coffee and caramel up front along with a hint of whipped cream and brown sugar. Some espresso roast and bitterness compliments the sweetness perfectly. Some vanilla and maple syrup comes in but everything leads to a moderately dry, coffee-like finish. Mouthfeel is full and slick but it is never too sweet. Overall, an absolutely world-class beer. So full of flavor and extremely drinkable. I really wish I would have gotten more than just a four pack and I need to try to get some more of this while I can.

Cerveza color negro opaco a contraluz. Corona de espuma de buena retención de baja carbonatacion de color café oscuro. Aromas a café, cacao, maltas tostadas. Al paladar consistencia cremosa más aun así bebible y disfrutable, se percibe inmediatamente el café y después se nota el sabor a chocolate con un final ligeramente picante de canela. El sabor a café y chocolate permanece en el retrogusto. Excelente cerveza. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strong coffee aroma. Some chocolate aroma. Dark but very clear. Taste the coffee up front. Less chocolate in the flavor profile. Some hops. Don't care for the heavy coffee. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Piana brązowa, obfita, spore oczka, redukuje się szybko do zera. Na powierzchni pływają jakieś spore farfocle. W zapachu bardzo intensywna kawa i czekolada, trochę kakao, paloności. W smaku kawa już się wybija, trochę wytrawna, razem z nią paloność, gorzka czekolada, tiramisu. Goryczka niska, wysycenie dość wysokie, posmak kawowy, czekoladowy.

Piana brązowa, obfita, drobna, średnio trwała. Kolor czarny z brązowymi refleksami. Aromat zdominowany przez świeżo paloną, szlachetną kawę, czekoladę, kakao i espresso z mleczkiem skondensowanym. W smaku półsłodkie, podobnie jak w zapachu kawa gra pierwsze skrzypce, jest też czekolada, rum, likier karmelowy. Goryczka średnia, palona, wysycenie średnie, nieco za wysokie. Dość treściwe, choć nie gęste w odbiorze, z lekko rozgrzewającym alkoholem.
Bardziej przypomina to FESa niż imperialnego stouta, dość pijalnego, kawowego, z czekoladowym dopełnieniem. Dobre, ale do Beer Geek Breakfast z Mikkellera jednak brakuje.

Flaska systembolaget. Brunsvart vätska. Djup rostad doft. Choklad, vanilj och lite trä. Krämig och välbalanserad munkänsla. Chokladbrownie, kaffe och vanilj.

Tap @ Beer Temple. Ruikt naar koffie proeft naar koffie is gewoon koffie. En dat met slechts met 8,3 procent. Gewoon en knap gebrouwen biertje. Voor ontbijt kan ik ook geen betere aanbevelen. Mooie super donkere koffie kleur. Smaakt verrassend goed gezien het alcohol percentage. Slaat snel dood maar het schuim blijft uitnodigend plakken. Top bier in zijn klasse. Wauw echt...

dambor (700) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2017
Pours dark with medium head. Aroma: a clear domination of coffee followed by chocolate. Taste: again coffee and chocolate, with medium body. ABV well hidden, even refreshing for a stout and highly drinkable.

Pitch black colour with a medium tan head. Aroma of coffee, cacao, burnt caramel and toasted malt. Beautiful intense mocha flavour with a bitter chocolate coffee finish. A legendary beer that lives up to the hype. Extremely enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is one of the very best beers ever. Very definite coffee flavor and therefore may not appeal to those who are not coffee drinkers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tinaccio (388) - Milano, ITALY - JUN 21, 2017
335 ml bottle from Kill The Cat, Brick Lane, London, UK. It pours dark brown with a medium, creamy, beige head. Aroma is particular, chocolate, toffee, caramel, coffee, roasted malts, marshmallows. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter. Strong alcohol notes for the ABV %. Body is full, carbonation is fine. Overall not liked it so much, my expectations were much higher!
