Rando7 (779) - Iowa, USA - MAR 8, 2010
Rich chocolate, cereal, coffee and alcohol aroma. Bottle pours thick and almost black. Taste coffee, alcohol and oats. Finish hangs around a while but very pleasant. Imagine when you were a kid and your mother brought you oatmeal and chocolate, then some coffee and beer. OK maybe not exactly like that but close.

skibumphishead (259) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 6, 2010
This beer is loaded with chocolate and coffee aromas. The taste is more chocolate with a warming alcohol flavor in the finish. This 4 pack was on sale for 9.99. This is one of the best imperial stouts I have had and worth the price.

12oz bottle. Pours thick, dark brown/black with a thin but persistent tan head. Aroma: chocolate-covered espresso beans. There are some notes of toffee, malts, molasses, and subtle fruit, too. Flavor: chocolate and espresso, through and through - like a Nestle Crunch bar with coffee ice cream. The end has a mild earhty bitterness - inviting and bittersweet. The finish is hoppy bitter underneath waves of more chocolate and coffee. The mouthfeel is full and very creamy with mesmerizing bubbles. Overall - crazy delicious.

mixmasterob (1055) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 4, 2010
Aroma is overwhelmed by coffee and smells great. Color is black, it pours in a viscous manner which laces the glass nicely. Little to no alcohol on the nose, mouthfeel is somewhat thick with coffee all over it. The oatmeal adds to the overall good mouthfeel. A wonderful example of a "breakfast stout" if there is one.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2010
Bottle from lbutikken, Copenhagen. Black pur with a brown head that fades a bit. The nose has a forth coming roastyness with plenty of coffee and chocolate notes topped with some citric side notes with alcohol. The mouthfeel is thick and oily without beeing too much - thats pretty neat. The taste is very fine and pretty balanced. Absolutely one of the best coffee stouts I have had. Its balanced between the roasted bitterness and the sweet notes from vanilla and chocolate while it still has a distant sourness and a sharp attitude from the alcohol. Very good beer - A job well done Founders.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - MAR 2, 2010
Bottle. An opaque black beer with an average sized, creamy, full lasting, lacing brown head. The aroma is powerful and malty, heavily coffeish (the most intense coffee aroma Ive ever encountered), with notes of roasted grains, chocolate, perhaps some hops and licorice. Not so multidimensional, but very nice aroma. The flavour is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Again heavily coffeish, but better than in the nose. Creamy, almost oily mouthfeel, medium to full body, lively carbonation, long finish with medium bitterness. It tastes better than it smells, after all really good.

Leafs93 (2202) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2010
Pours black with a creamy tan head, this beer has a very creamy mouthfeel. Aroma is of chocolates, coffee and caramel. Coffee comes through in the taste, the beer is mildly bittersweet and balanced. Light carbonation helps the finish linger. I could drink this for breakfast anyday of the week, fantastic.

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1120) - FINLAND - FEB 26, 2010
Bottle. Almost black colour with a small brown head. The aroma of coffee with notes of malt and chocolate. Lots of coffee in the flavour with some chocolate, oat, roasted malt and slight bitterness. Medium-bodied and very smooth. Aftertaste is roasted and bitter.
