The coffee lovers consummate beer. Brewed with an abundance of flaked oats, bitter and imported chocolates and two types of coffee, this stout has an intense fresh-roasted java nose topped with a frothy, cinnamon-colored head that goes forever.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2008
Bottle at shack of party banter dance-off. Aroma is roasty, chocolate, fruity, cigars, good quality coffee. Taste however is too intence and really difficult to swallow as it goes on. A bit upsetting as the aroma was quite acceptable.

dalekliz (916) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 31, 2008
Deep black with a thin tan head. Rich, sweet toasted malt aroma, with dark fruits and molasses. Taste is also very rich and malty, with a lot of molasses flavor as well as big coffee and chocolate notes. Lingering sweet and bitter malt taste. A rich, delicious imperial stout.

RoyceH (1198) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - MAR 31, 2008
Bottle at Magic_dave6s disco dance tasting. Black, thick brown head. Nose is overbrewed coffee, milky, masses of espresso, really bitter. Mouth is coffee, roasted, milk chocolate. Bitter all the way through. Good.

Nate (4263) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2008
Bottle courtesy of santoslhalper. Great nose to this one. Rich, smoky, chocolate and coffee. Vanilla and molasses, light Tootsie Roll. Mild acidity with alcohol vapors, and a sour tang. Very nice. A glass of Stygian darkness with chocolately thin lacing head. Full oily body with medium carbonation, liquid velvet. Starts rich and chocolatey, with smoky toasted malt, vinuous acidity, molasses and coffee, burnt smoky acidity. Tootsie Rolls and vanilla. Leaves a nutty burnt bitter chalkyness on the tongue, with a bit of alcoholic warming and sweet creme de cafe finish. Light smoky coffee after with perfect balance of bitterness and lingering sweetness. This is a really nice impy stout.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of Secret Santa. Pours black with a moderately large brown head that left lots of sticky lace while it quickly receded. Very pleasant aroma of coffee and roasted malt. The flavor is again coffee and roasted malt, however, the coffee isnt as totally dominating as it is in some other coffee stouts Ive had recently. Coffee bitterness at the finish. Good way to start the day!

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2008
Bottle. Black colour with a nice head. Much aroma of coffee and some roastedness. Flavour of coffee and alcohol. Ends up very bitter - and a lof of coffee in the aftertaste.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 20, 2008
Thick, heavy dark pour with bubbly dark tan head. Head disappears disappointing quickly, but some lingers on top of a what appears to be a very heavy beer. Strong aromas of bitter chocolate, expresso, toffee sweetness, and oatmeal. The beer drinks as thick as it looks... truly one to savor on the palate. Same tastes as aromas, with added roastiness and tasty hops. For all its intensity, its really a lovely beer.
