Draft. Dark cola with a thick mocha head. Aroma is oat, chocolate and subtle coffee. Coffee becomes more apparent in the taste but the balance is incredible. Perfect tension between sweet and toasty. Medium smooth and sticky mouthfeel. Outstanding. Baristas2Brewers (25) - - FEB 15, 2015

Tap @ Hotel Vermont. Wow now this is what I’m talking about. I’m in stout heaven here with notes of coffee, chocolate, barley, and pure bliss. Slam dunk and wish there was a way I could high jack the keg to bring home.

Growler shared thanks to scotchzi! Pours an opaque black with fluffy tan head that leaves good lace. Aroma of deep roasted malts and coffee, hints of dark chocolate and smoke. Taste follows, nice and smooth, good balance of roast and smoke. Nothing crazy, but nicely done. Vestergaard (2091) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2015
Bottle thanks to Aaron and Erik. Pours a pitch black with a fluffy, brown head. Aroma has coffee, cocoa, licorice and salmiak, hints of oatmeal and some slight roast. Taste is bitter roasty with lots of coffee, but also some fruity sweetness. Smooth and nice, and with a little hop presence as well. Low carb.

On tap at Hill Farmstead. Poured a dark brown, near black, dark brown head that recedes into a nice cap. Aromas of coffee, bitter bakers chocolate, anise and a light toast. Taste is nicely balanced, just as the nose. Slight bitter chocolate and coffee lends to a nice sweet cereal malt and yeast harmony. Finishes with a medium bodied mouthfeel and a nice crisp bitter coffee that lingers for a minute. Tasty! berntholer (1619) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 19, 2014

From notes. This was shared at a tasting put on by @mikem409 on November 7. The pour on this thing is a nice oily black with a medium tan head and some gorgeous lace. The aroma is heavy in coffee. There is a bit of roasted malt, good cocoa notes, a strong dark fruit presence (prune or cherry) and a light smokey vanilla on the far back. The flavor is just as great. There is a ton of coffee but the rest of the flavors break through as it moves through the mouth. The mouth feel is creamy and viscous with a good medium carbonation that helps it coat really well. The aftertaste is definitely roasty and dry with some good cocoa and coffee Lightly bitter. Love it!
