Did not get a head on this when poured from bottle to glass. Seems a bit flat but the aroma and taste make up for it. Lots of coffee flavor with some hits at the chocolate. Kinda like a mocha with a slight alcohol twang to it. Got a 4 pack so hopefully the other 3 will have some fizz so that I can get that nice thick head that I expect to see from a oat stout. Gave low overall due to lack of head and cost. While yes it is very good to warrent the higher price tag, it is too costly for regular purchase and will be just a one time deal for me.
Pours dark with medium head. Aroma: a clear domination of coffee followed by chocolate. Taste: again coffee and chocolate, with medium body. ABV well hidden, even refreshing for a stout and highly drinkable. JuanFernandes88 (39) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 23, 2017
Pitch black colour with a medium tan head. Aroma of coffee, cacao, burnt caramel and toasted malt. Beautiful intense mocha flavour with a bitter chocolate coffee finish. A legendary beer that lives up to the hype. Extremely enjoyable.

This is one of the very best beers ever. Very definite coffee flavor and therefore may not appeal to those who are not coffee drinkers.

335 ml bottle from Kill The Cat, Brick Lane, London, UK. It pours dark brown with a medium, creamy, beige head. Aroma is particular, chocolate, toffee, caramel, coffee, roasted malts, marshmallows. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter. Strong alcohol notes for the ABV %. Body is full, carbonation is fine. Overall not liked it so much, my expectations were much higher!

Light to medium sweet, light to medium dry bitter spicy ; light warming background ; nice balance. Medium good body, light to medium texture, soft carbonation, coffee spicy lasting strong finish. Overall, superb, delicious :)

Black coloured ale with a nice espresso like head.
Aroma: chocolate, roast, coffee beans and some mocha.
Taste: roasted malts, milk chocolate, some coffee and some sweetness with some nice amount of bitterness.
Creamy mouthfeel with average carbonation. Stew41 (2021) - Phuket, THAILAND - JUN 10, 2017
Well worth the lofty rep. A great balance of fresh chocolate / roast and firm hops which makes for an elegant drink with power (make sense). If anything plays under its 8.5% in terms of palate weight but the beer is better off for it. A line of sweet stones to finish. strowlands8 (209) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2017
Aroma is intense coffee and chocolate, reminds me Peche Mortel. Dark brown with a small tan head. Flavour is rich dark chocolate, coffee and molasses with a bitter dark roasty finish - just a touch of booze. Medium body, not quite as full as I’d hoped, soft carbonation, but slightly sharp. Overall a terrific beer, comes up a little short compared to other world class imperial stouts though. Couldn’t find a bottling date but this one was at least 3-4 years old. yoxik75 (85) - Wroclaw, POLAND - JUN 7, 2017
Piana obfita, średnie i duże oczka, opada szybko. Kolor czarny nieprzejrzysty. Aromat, polonosc, słodycz, czekolada i kawa. Smak kawa, gorzka czekolada, nuty palone przez co lekko kwaskowe, slodycz, sa tez nuty owocowe, przy czym całość średnio pełna, chmielenie wyraźne pasujące. Piwo złożone, smaki grają, nic nie dominuje, pije sie bardzo dobrze.

Had on tap & from bottles, just had 1 that was bottled on 12/3/2015. It was still great, however the coffee had fallen off, so it became regular chocolate cake. What a downside. I never got a ton of coffee fresh, but it always has a nice level of roast to chocolate. Both fresh & aged it had a great aroma & mouthfeel. Gorgeous mocha head & appropriate lacing.
