Bottled. I loved this one with the very strong coffee aroma and flavor. Really heavy finish.
At 9.1% alcohol it's a bit too strong for my taste. Pours a dark thick black with little foamy head

Bomber thanks to hauxe. Pours almost black with a tan head. Aroma of dark malts and espresso. Taste is espresso, dark malts, alcohol, but primarily coffee. Finish is roasty, bitter and boozy. Good but not great. darbeer75 (911) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2017
Aroma: chocolatey with a little coffee; Appearance: pitch black with creamy tan head that lingers; Taste: follows nose with more booziness; good; Palate: heavy body with long, boozy finish; Overall: would like more dimension but still enjoyable. Would drink if available but probably not get again. ciocanelu (2603) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 13, 2017
Dark brown color with tan head. Aroma has sweetened milk coffee with some dark chocolate on top. Taste follows with the sweet coffee at first but gets more bitter and roasty towards the finish lingering with coffee flavor on the aftertaste. Medium to full bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Overall it’s a really nice coffee stout with balanced flavors. meccahh69lol (250) - New Haven, Connecticut, USA - MAR 15, 2017
Well, we finally made it. Beer rating # 69. It is gonna be 351 more ratings till we get to another funny number so let’s bask in it for a moment . . . OK, on with the review. Here we have another contentious stout rating for I enjoy them but my better half winces and calls them "garbage water" unless the chocolate notes are strong and pure. This beer does not have strong choco notes. It is very much a coffee stout (per the name obv). It has a nice malty smell and dark velvety pour (edit: and also smells like a raccoon died in a dumpster). It has a nice coffee taste and lingers with a long finish (edit: that will not go away unless you chug your hot cocoa). It isn’t as good as the "High West-ified" varietal I tried from Lagunitas a few weeks ago, but this is still good (edit: 696969696969696969696969696969). I like it at least. Review by me, edits by my booboo.

Tap at J’s Lagunitas event. Pours a pitch black with a finger of beige foam. Chocolate forward nose with some light malt and coffee notes. Booze hidden well. Good coffee notes on the palate/finish. Solid. ozzy70 (1170) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 13, 2017

Smells like a rusty coffee can. Tastes like some day old maxwell house out of that can. Hermod (8062) - Vantaa, FINLAND - DEC 2, 2016
65cl bottle @ William K, kurvi. 8,9% version.
Poured near black with a thin brown head.
Aroma has strong coffee, roasted malt, licorice, spicy notes.
Lots of coffee here, builds up nicely with some licorice, mild ashy notes, roasted malt, dark chocolate.
Long finish. Nice, but expected better body though. piscator34 (2541) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 28, 2016
Bottle. Jet black in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of coffee, stewed fruit, and a bit of vanilla. Flavors are of mild drip coffee, pale malt, caramel, and a bit of chocolate. Elements of ashy coffee grounds show up on the finish, along with some mild herbal bitterness. Solid, but not terribly intense.
