From a bottle. This poured pitch black with a nice tan head that stayed with the beer the whole time. The aroma of chocolate, coffee, is very intense, It had a long finish with a coffee flavor that hung around in my mouth.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - FEB 7, 2010
Bottle. Pours very dark with a small beige head. Aroma and flavor is coffee, coffee, coffee. I love it when stouts taste like coffee cuz of the malt, but not so much when its because, well, half the brew is coffee. Some chocolate, hoppy, vanilla notes also lurk in there, but this is like a fifty/fifty coffee/beer proposition. Tasty, but kinda cheating. Rates high on flavor/aroma, low on the overall score (for a good beer), since it doesnt seem quite legit.

Massive rich stale coffee aroma. Very soft palate Massive coffee retronasals. This is basically more coffee than beer. However, its pretty tasty, although the idea is rather hackneyed, and this isnt a good example compared to the best, trading slickness in the palate for the fullness of BGB, say. Big tingly finish.

Pours a perfect pitch black. Dark brown head sits atop. The aroma is a nice blend of oats, dark chocolate, and coffee. The flavor is intense but the finish is smooth. Overall a wonderful beer.

pauls_parade (340) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 6, 2010
Poured from a bottle black with a solid light brown head, which quickly dissipated but left fine lacing. The nose is chocolate, caramel, coffee, and a little vanilla. The palate is very smooth, beginning with light tinkling from the carbonation, rolling roundly over the tongue and finishing with a lasting dry coffee-bitterness. The chocolate becomes more prevalent as the beer warms. This is one of the best beers for a cold winter day, and is by far one of my favorite beers for sipping and savoring the flavor.

Hansen (8489) - Assentoft, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2010
Dark, almost black. Has a light brown head, mostly lasting. Aroma is dark, oak, coffee, chocolate, roasted. Perhaps a faint note of smoke. Flavor is rather bitter for a stout. Dry. Faint medicine.

jesperhammer (4299) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2010
30-JAN-2010, bottle @home, from "Fish & Beer". Pours jet black with high brown head. Looks delicious...:) Heavy coffee and chocolate aroma. Very bitter taste with lots of hops, and of course also the coffee, and chocolate notes. The hops adds to toe long aftertaste, and this is just a very very good stout.
