The coffee lover’s 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.

MacDouglass (88) - Illinois, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Aroma: it honestly smells like a bacon and egg breakfast w/ Tobasco sauce to me, I don’t care if this beer is mostly supposed to reflect coffee/chocolate flavors, this beer truly captures the essence of my Sunday breakfasts: 2 eggs, sunny side up, smothered with Tobasco verde sauce and black pepper, 3 strips of maple smoked bacon, two whole wheat toast w/ butter and cherry jelly for soaking up the yoke, strong black coffee (no cream or sugar), and a small glass of O.J., yup, that’s what I’m reminded of when I smell this brew; Appearance: the body is standard stout, coffee brown bordering on black, but the head is exactly as described on the bottle, a frothy cinnamon color that lingers after the pour; Taste: strong hashbrown/skillet, but also the roasty coffee and dark chocolate that this brew is known for, heavy smoke also, again, just like the aroma, the taste truly captures the essence of a breakfast; Palate: decent bitter lingers, which helps remind you that you’re drinking a beer as opposed to eating a meal; Overall: I can honestly say that I loved this beer before my colleagues on RB took a liking to it too, so my rating is in no way influenced by its tremendous popularity, I’ve been raving about this stout to my family and friends, and, except for one person who is not a fan of coffee, everyone has agreed that its either one of the best stouts they’ve ever had, or its at least one of the better ones they’ve had in a while, enjoy!

Butelka w Muranów Craft. Kawa, czekolada deserowa. Konsystencja w miarę oleista. W smaku dużo kawy, sporo palonosci. Bardzo gładkie, mocno pijalne.

DenverLogan (1301) - North Bend, Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2018
From a 12 ounce bottle into a Trumer Pils stem glass. Pours black with brown head and lace. Aroma of coffee, dark malts, an old church. Moderate carbonation and big mouthfeel. Flavors of dark malts, chocolate in various forms, coffee, minerals, dried red pepper spice, mocha, caramel malt. Thankfully this is not to everyone's taste, but for a big beer lover who also appreciates coffee in a beer, quite tasty.

Very favourful. Even with the high alcoholic content it doesn’t taste too strong.

12/7/17: 12 ounce pour into nonic at Monk's Pub. Dark black pour, thin minimal tan head. Minimal faint chocolate and coffee aroma. Chocolate taste, bread, hint of coffee. Neutral balance. Thin texture dry, smooth drinking. good offering by Founders.

xist_ (10) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2018
Pours a beautiful, jet black. Large, darkish brown head. Aromas of strong coffee, chocolate and oats. Tastes mostly of coffee, but with strong notes of chocolately malts as well with a pleasant finish. Alcohol is present here and adds to the taste. Very nice beer, definitely lived up to the hype and is my favorite imperial stout!

Aromat: gęsta czekolada, kawa, trochę nut palonych. Zapach dosyć intensywny, zawiesisty ale trochę jednowymiarowy. Wygląd: czarne, smoliste, brązowa, średnia warstwa ładnej, drobnopęcherzykowej piany, ładnie oblepiającej szkło, dosyć szybko zanikającej. Smak: gorzka czekolada, mnóstwo kawy, kawowa cierpkość i paloność. Na pewno gładkie i puszyste, zapewne dzięki płatkom owsianym. Coś tam pływa w tym piwie, drobiny kawy? Kawa, kawa dominuje tu w smaku, jest ono jednowymiarowe bardzo, w zasadzie nie mam o czym tu pisać. Odczucie: dosyć pełne, gładkie, ułożone bardzo dobrze, finisz długi gorzki, kawowy. Coś tam ściąga na języku. Całość:nie rozumiem wysokiej oceny tego piwa, jest ono co prawda zrobione poprawnie ale bardzo jednowymiarowe, mało ciekawe i tak średnio smaczne. Wypić można i nic więcej. Dominacja kawy jest trochę męcząca, nuty cierpkie też psują efekt końcowy. Nasz Birbant El Jaguaris jest dużo, dużo lepszy jeśli porównujemy w kategorii stouty z kawą. 7/4/6/4/12

Schön dunkel, Schaum hält sich wacker. Im Trunk deutlich Schokolade, Kaffee, süßer Nachhall, Röstmalz. Sehr hohe Drinkability, lecker.

kaserov (1102) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 4, 2018
Color negro con capa de espuma marrón de dos dedos de grosor y no mucha retención. Carbonatación suave. Textura entre oleosa y cremosa, con un mínimo de carbonatación de inicio. Aroma a grano de café, ligeramente herbal, con vainilla, chocolate, malta torrefacta y reminiscencias ahumadas muy lejanas. En boca la fusión entre chocolate y café es tan increíble como en aroma. Toques de vainilla. Algo de fruto seco. De nuevo, ese ahumado muy lejano. Dulzor muy bien medido, sin excesos. Incluso ligerísima acidez aportada por el café. Amargor al final del trago, junto con café y notas torrefactas. Postgusto a café y chocolate.

Daboch (246) - Gdansk, POLAND - JAN 2, 2018
Ciemnobrunatne prawie czarne piwo z beżową obfitą drobnopecherzykową pianą. Piwo pięknie się prezentuje. Aromat kawy i słodu palonego. Smak porannej café creme, w tle nuty palone i czekoladowe. Finisz delikatnie wytrawny. Bdb stout
