From bottle
Black color tan head. Sweet and hoppy scent. Sweet at dfirst, though turns qutie dry and to the high bitter side in taste. Medium to dry mouthfeel, high dry bitterness. First time I had it warm and as the first beer, then I did not care for it much. Second time I tried it very cold and after several other beers, then it went down much easier. Not really anything Ill go back to a lot.

12oz bottle in an English pint. Pours dark brown, almost black with a thick beige head. Aroma of chocolate and oatmeal. When you first drink it, the sweet roasted malts and oatmeal dominate. But then the finish comes in with chocolate and coffee. Oily texture, Full bodied. This beer was near perfect, but during the night it was followed by the KBS and Expedition Stout. Its not as good as those, but its incredible.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2012 Re-rate on fresh bottle. Lots of chocolate and coffee, thick body, no lactic flavor or aroma. Great!

12 oz bottle from beernbourbon. Pours dark brown/black with a huge foamy tan head that leaves some spotty lacing, this one was definitely under pressure. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, dark roasted malt and a bit of acidic lactic scent. Flavor is dark rich bittersweet chocolate, coffee and a sharp lactic aftertaste. Full body with active carbonation and a super long finish. Not sure if this was a slightly funky bottle or what, will have to eventually re-rate another bottle. Thanks again Vince.

PolishHammer (124) - Norwalk, Connecticut, USA - MAY 15, 2010
Wow... What a complex and interesting brew. Strong coffe and chocolate aroma... Sweet, malty and toasty. Taste to match... Mocha. Drink cold... Alcohol is well hidden -really 8.3? As it warms, takes on more of a kahlua and boozy taste, but if consumed at appropriate temp this is a wonderful delicious and complex coffee and chocolate flavored beer.

hallinghansen (3067) - Odense SV, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2010
Bottle. Black body with a long lasting creamy brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, smoke. Flavor is bitter chocolate, coffee, oatmeal, roasted malt, notes of hops. Smoky notes. It has a very long lasting aftertaste of bitter coffee. Alcohol is well hidden. Nice lacings. Thick mouthful. A lovely and cheap beer.

Riotbeard (107) - Birmingham, USA - MAY 9, 2010
Overall, a very nice breakfast stout. Coffee dominates the aroma, but the flavor is more cocao and roasty. Color is black with a tan head. I think KBS ends up being a little bit better balanced than the bs.

Poured from the bottle. Pitch black with a caramel head. Smells like a great espresso, with a little bit of oatmeal in there. Great creamy mouthfeel. Tastes is strong of very bitter coffee and oatmeal. The booze is pretty well hidden. This is one tasty stout

A superlative beer. Rich aroma of coffee, bitter chocolate, and alcohol. The flavor is rich and smooth with a nice, subtle cocoa aftertaste. This is a lovely, dark beer that would be perfect with a slice or rich cheesecake after dinner.
