Bottle.Dark creamy black worth an usual aroma on opening.Dry with a thick texture and a full body. Definitely a stout that stands out from the rest.

Had this both fresh and aged for a year, not a big difference, plenty delicious no matter what the age. Best part is the palate, smooth with hints of coffee, sweet chocolates, bitterness, all dancing around the tongue. Top notch.

I have not tried a stout this good in a while. Very viscous pour, with a pretty big head. There is a strong coffee aroma to this, with maybe some burnt oats and bitter chocolate. Flavor is just amazing, I could drink this all day. Expenseive bottle, but worth the money.

This beer was worth the quest to find it. Pours a slick black color from the bomber with a firm brown head. Smells and tastes of powdered dark cocoa, oatmeal, roasted coffee, and ash. Left a smokey aftertaste, likely from the branding it gave my palate.

Bottle shared like a champ by nubtler11. He will never cease trying to push me to the dark side and for once I see his logic. This is a beastly roast oatmeal and coffee flavor that just sits on your chest. Dry, powdery texture. Charcoal and grain round out the aromas and experience. Ka bam.

Bottled, poured into a snifter: Starting temperature at 39 degrees F. MBGB pours black with complete opacity. The head is large and brown, leaving strati of lacing. This is a beautiful beer. The aroma is predominately oatmeal and a surprisingly noticeable hop sting. The body is full, chewy and just a bit oily. The oatmeal smoothness rounds out the coffee bitterness quite nicely. The medium-to-high alcohol content does not make an appearance in the flavor or palate, bringing down the complexity of the beer. This does not detract from the beer as it is classified as a stout and not an imperial stout. The finish is grainy and brings to mind course bread. This would be a wonderful beer to drink with cheese soup. All in all this is easily one of the top three stouts along with Hitachino Nest Expresso Stout and Bells Kalamazoo Stout.

500ml bottle served in a snifter. Bottle conditioned. Poured a deep brown/black with a big finger of fine bubbled tan head. Lots of coffee and chocolate in the aroma along with a bit of cocoa. Very rich mouthfeel. More coffee and chocolate malt in the flavor. Long lasting, very dry chocolate/coffee finish. There is also a fair amount of hop bitterness towards the end. Good beer, lives up to the hype for the most part. At the price, it will not be in my regular rotation, but a must try.

Bottle. Pours black with a nice creamy head which leaves a nice lacing. sweetened coffee in the nose with some hints of smoke underneath. Very well balanced, its seems bitter but then the sweetness comes through, with milk finally balancing it all out. Thick beer, very hearty. Smooth and drinkable. Fine beer.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2009 Holy crap this was a great beer!! Darker than dark like well-used motor oil. You cant see a hint of light through this beer even if you hold it in front of a spotlight. Slight roasty coffee smell. Refreshing roasted malty taste with a good dry coffee flavored finish. I was totally impressed with this beer. The guy at our local specialty liquor store said he had a hard time getting a dependable quantity from the distributor. Not quite as good as Arrogant Bastard but pretty damn close.
