ben4321 (6147) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 18, 2010
Location: 12 oz bottle from Wine and Beer Westpark, 1/18/10

Aroma: Lots of roasted coffee, some sweet notes, chocolate, pepper, vanilla, and some smoke
Appearance: This one pours a dark brown color with a creamy brown head
Flavor: Mild sweetness up-front with a bitter coffee tingle lingering on the tongue
Palate: Medium-full body with a thick feel, and a somewhat long duration
Overall Impression: Id been holding on to this one for a couple of months, but hey, tonight is as good a night as any. As I watch the beginning of another season of 24, Ill toast this beer to Jack Bauer! This is a very nice stout especially for all the coffee lovers out there. It reminds me a little bit of Dieu du Ciel Pch Mortel, which I also like. A very nice beer.

An incredible looking beer. Pours your typical stout body with a good inch of a thick brown head. Smells strongly of mocha, vanilla, and oats. Great lacing. Smooth and rich. A slightly astringent mouthfeel akin to a cold coffee. Sweetly malted. A great beer.

BlackWarrior (203) - Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA - JAN 17, 2010
Pours black with a small/mediuim thick, light brown head that lingers. Smells of milk chocolate, graham crackers, and some coffee. Mouthfeel starts creamy/full and tapers to a medium body with carbonation. Definite coffee and dark chocolate bitterness with some sweetness. Overall an enjoyable, heavy stout. A good substitute for a sandwich.

Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2010
Bottle at The Beertemple, Amsterdam. Pours pitch black with a very small tan head. Aroma of strong espresso style coffee, chocolate and caramel. Bitter coffee flavor and a nice creamy texture. Bitter finish. Very nice beer.

DerWeg (1629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 15, 2010
Midnight brown pour with espresso foam cap. Nose has aromas of chocolate and coffee, nice! Taste replay of aroma plus some dark sweet and tart fruits, and some notable hop edge which plays off the added coffee edge. Peche might be awfully competitive to this but this is great. Medium full feel.

jmm635 (1004) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2010
Pours with a black body and a very large, dense, rocky, light brown head. Aroma was malty and roasted with an enormous amount of coffee. Coffee was just too strong in the flavor. I found it near undrinkable with the coffee and hop bitterness. This bottle is pretty old and I feel like Im missing something, so Im willing to give it another chance. Highly disappointed.

This beer poured a deep red with a reddish brown head that was pretty thick but not too much. I could smell the beer from about 4 feet away and it was very powerful. The taste was similar to that of other chocolate/coffee stoudts that ive had but it was balanced very well. Nice beer for a cold day.

Deep deep dark brown brew, average head, dissipating, with a solid, bitter, delicious coffee aroma. Smooth, medium body, coffee, nutty flavor.SOLID Stout.

ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2010
Bottle. The pour is dark dark brown with a small tanned head that leaves some lacings. The smell is a really tight mix of coffee beans, sweet dark chocolate, roasted malts and subtle hop aromas. The taste follows suit. Its somewhat sweet in the mouth with intense notes of coffee beans, freshly brewed coffee, sweet chocolate, bitter chocolate and roasted malts. It gets slightly tannic in the middle. Hints of hops. The finish is rather dry and has a nice coffee bitterness to it, and faiding notes of roasted malts and chocolate. Smooth on palate with well balanced carbonation. A bit too dry in the finish though. All in all, an impressive coffee beer. Not overly complex, but the flavors are integrated in a really impressive way.

Totally Black with a minimal Brown head, a roasted coffee with some anise on the nose. The same in terms of flavor but adds a dark chocolate in the after taste. The flavors stay for what seems like forever (A Good Thing!!). Is everything that its advertised to be... A truely GREAT BEER!!!
