Viscous pour, dark brown, black in the glass, with no light making it through even around the edges of the glass. Had a medium-sized dark-tan head and good lacing. Smells of oats, coffee, molasses, and pine. Really thick, velvety body, dry. Tastes of oats, chocolate, coffee, pine and citrus, with a medium bitter finish. It’s amazing that the hop presence is so strong in a stout this huge. A meal in a glass. Ober (2819) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2009
At tasting session by Joes. A black colored beer, with a thick foamy beige head. The aroma of smoke/roated malts, dark chocolate and coffee. The taste is dry with coffee, some dark chocolate. It’s bitter in a gentle way, with notes of dark fruits. The aftertaste is bitter and dry. ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 16, 2009

Rating #600. Pours black with creamy brown head. Aromas of burnt malts and coffee. Roasted malt flavor with sweet dark chocolate and coffee and a slightly bitter finish. Full body with soft carbonation and a velvety mouthfeel. Excellent.

Bottle from City Beer for breakfast with a piece of chocolate cake - breakfast of champions! Pours jet black and thick with a big brown head that lasts. Aroma is lots of coffee, bitter chocolate, and roast. Flavor is roasted malt, heavy on the coffee, with chocolate and noticeable alcohol on the finish. Creamy palate with oatmeal and a full mouthfeel. An excellent stout. Chocolate cake pairing recommended. gary07734 (500) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2009
Pours jet black, viscous like thick gravy and a huge brown foamy head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, malt and some alcohol. Taste is very complex, lots of chocolate and coffee flavours, and an oaty savoury edge with a malty/oaty sweet background. Finishes medium bitter and the coffee comes through more. Enjoyable strong thick beer. grandet (501) - Scranton, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2009

16.9oz bottle. Pours black with a large pillowy mocha head. Huge coffee roast aroma with hints of chocolate malt. Aroma comes through on the tongue with an excellent flavor of fresh-roosted coffee and cocoa. Medium bodied and silky smooth with lively carbonation. Nice bitter coffee aftertaste. Nothing overwhelms in this beer. A very well done coffee stout.
