A nice dark brown body, beige head that disappears too quickly. Smell is of nuts, coffee, chocolate, oak, earth and alcohol. Flavor is much the same. Full body with mild carbonation. Pretty sweet. Frenger (367) - Derby, Alabama, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2012
Bottle from utobeer in London. Very tasty coffee stout, quite sweet, would say it was a milk coffee stout. TheHopster (1111) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - JUN 30, 2012
(bottle). Sweet malt aroma. Deep brown complexion with tan head. Flavors of malt, mocha and some coffee. Somewhat thin palate. Alcohol very well hidden.

Bottle at home, cheers Dan! Black, with lovely brown head which sadly fizzes away to nothing almost instantly. Smells terrific, the coffee is very present but it has a creamy, full-bodied character. There is also a delicious toffee and dark fruits sort of thing there. Tastes surprisingly bitter, given the nose, but not unpleasantly so. The coffee continues in that full-bodied vein, and the dark fruits and toffee are pronounced as well, along with caramel and a slight liquorice note. Perhaps a touch too fizzy, but it’s a minor quibble with a top notch beer. Lubiere (13915) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2012
A deep dark stout with a thin creamy and frothy brown head. In aroma, a smooth mochaccino hits you at first, with some nice fruityness, vanilla and caramel. In mouth, an intense chocolate and coffee vanilla, light drinking a Coffee Crisp, grassy hops, a tad too sweet, but intersting. On tap at R&H, June 30, 2012.

Had this on tap in north bar Leeds as part of their 15th birthday celebrations, think it was a kujo hybrid, looked like used engine oil very deep flavour smother than a greased silk stocking, coffee, roasty, alcohol, vanilla had a hint of milk stout flavour to it DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - JUN 28, 2012
On tap at Beer Rev in Oakland, CA. Poured black in color with a thick tan head. Smelled of roasted malt and coffee. Tasted of coffee and chocolate. Not very bitter, which is a plus. Very impressed and would drink again.

355ml bottle from Bottle Shop Canterbury. Ok, so this really isn’t my kind of beer. I’m drinking this whilst eating English crumpets with raspberry conserve and listening to a R.E.M. live album from Dublin. So I’m in a good mood. Black beer with thin disappearing beige head until I swirled the beer and a thick tan head raised up. Thick intense aroma of belgian dark chocolate and intense espresso coffee. I mean heavy coffee. Like freshly ground coffee beans. As good as Yeti? Not quite. But as a big coffee impy stout? Yep that’s pretty good in that it is utterly drinkable. I was fearing an oily soy sauce mess, but this is dry and agile and drinkable. Yep, goes with the crumpets and the jam really well. Wow the coffee is pretty good. Very dry. Not subtle but hell its a big impy stout. yep intense and pretty damn fine. I would purchase this again. Some alcohol does come through, some burn. Pretty good though.
