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.

( 12oz. Bottle thanks to BA Desaparecido) pours near black, dark brown lasting creamy head and excellent lacing. Nose of dark fruits, coffee, dark chocolate and cream. Taste of milk chocolate, cream, lots of coffee, oats, and quite rich and complex. Great creamy thick finish. Excellent beer.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2010 Draft sample at Cincy Beerfest. This was my winner of all the samples I tried at the event. Ive had this in the fridge for a while and didnt think Id actually try it outside first, but finally did. Pours a dark, dark brown, almost black but cola brown on the edges. Thin tan head. Big coffee aroma, with roasted malts, brown sugar, dark chocolate, and wood. Big coffee flavor, too, with dark chocolate, oats, molasses, and brown sugar. Full-bodied, with minimal carbonation and a roasty finish. Great beer that lives up to its name and reputation.

Bottled at Pikkulintu. A share to MJS. Brownish head. Coffeyish nose. Soft coffeyish and malty taste. Slight grassiness in the taste. At the end bitterness. Slight hints of bluecheese in the taste. Some hoppiness too.

Think oily brown pour with a thin brown head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Initial flavor of oatmeal and coffee, which subsides to a hoppy, dry finish.

Pours medium black with a very light tan head. Tastes of coffee, roast malt. Aromas are of freshly brewed coffee. My only criticism is that maybe the body is a touch thin. Otherwise, an outstandingly balance stout that I would drink anytime.
