omhper (25957) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2012
Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Black, minimal head. Aroma of coffee and licorice. Dryish with medium body and clean mouthfeel. Roasty with plenty of coffee. Salty mid bitter finish. Flavourful, but rather clean.

Quite velvety, medium-bodied stout - notes of espresso, toasted grains, bittersweet chocolate - a splash of spicy rye - mild acidity - lightly spicy hops in the finish - pretty nice.

22 oz. bottle- Pours dark brown to black with red highlights and a thin mocha head that reduces quickly to a collar and big bubbles floating around. The aroma is nice espresso coffee, wonderful aroma. The taste is big coffee, kind of a blend of good espresso coffee and burnt bitter coffee, which does mellow somewhat as it sits. Some chocolate comes through as well. Body is thinner than expected and carbonation is moderately low. Overall was hoping for more, expected more. The second glass was way better than the first, letting it breathe and warm helped this beer tremendously, it totally changed my opinion, overall went from a 14 to a 16.

Sampler at the pub. Black black. Big coffee aroma, little bit of chocolate and licorice. Taste lots of malt and espresso. Very solid.

5000 (6900) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Nearly black, well black but with dark brown hues on the edge.   Large frothy beige head, strong carbonation, spotty lacing.   Coffee up front, roasted malt aroma on the back.   Spritzy on the tongue, roasty, pale coffee, finishes very quickly.   Not a heavy beer by any means, very bubbley.   Could stand to be a bit maltier.   Not thin, just seems a bit watery for a stout.   Soft roasted malts and coffee linger.   Also seems a little grainy, well minor graininess anyway.   Tiz okay, wished it was a little heavier/smoother.   A little too fizy.

Johnsense (1804) - - NOV 19, 2011
Callared 6-8 months. Cola black with a finger of mocha coloured head. Aroma of dark chocolate covered coffee beans, espresso, cocoa. Bitter coffee up front (think cold blackcoffee), cereal grains, oats, dark chocolate. A bit thinner than I would like but the carbonation is right. The taste kind of reminds me of that smell you get when you walk into an organic grocery store.

Bomber. Bought at Super 1 in CDA, Idaho. Pours inky black with brown edges and a one-finger beige head that fades into a collar and skiff of foam. Aroma is a bit spicy--like chili beer spicy; from the coffee or one of those obscure grains, maybe. Taste is sweet and spicy with a dry bitter finish. Carbonation is average, body is medium. Great beer.

Wow, poured from a 22oz from malt & vine. did you ever need an after dinner desert beer? well here it is!! strong scents of coffee and chocolate right from the pour and immediate tastes of the coffee. turned this coffee, i mean beer into something different. at first I wasnt s sure this is where I wanted the stout to go, but was impressed how powerful they made this. great job

Nikiel (879) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 4, 2011
On tap at hub with Carla. Pours deep brown with tan foam. Smells bitter of roasted malts and espresso. Feels very smooth and tastes heavily of coffee and a bit of chocolate and bananas.
