Huge one inch, almost brown, head Darkest Ive ever seen. Big aroma -toasted, dark chocolate, strong, bitter coffee. Unfortunately, the aroma and appearance did not live up to the taste of this beer. To be honest I was a little disappointed. Couldnt taste much oatmeal until it realy warmed up. Was quite dry. It was OK, but I obviously didnt like it as much as most other reviewers. I have another bottle, which I re-rate in a couple of weeks.

Another one courtesy of Shigadeyo. Pours black with a large tan head. Beautiful pour. Aromas of cocoa, boozy ripened fruits, coffee. Flavor is rich coffee, malts, bitter chocolates, hints of smoke and roast. Very smooth and creamy to the palate. Thanks again Craig.

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2008
Opaque and black in color with a thick head that fell away. There were scents of roased coffee beans, dark chocolate and heavy cream. In the mouth it was medium-bodied and showed off the coffee and chocolate. The hops picked up toward the finish which just added to the bitter, black coffee feeling. A very nice brew but I have the feeling that some barrel aging would help fill out the midpalate.

This is a perfect beer for the Alaskan winter. Unfortunately it is not available and my supply has just run out. Wonderful though, extremely well balanced and complex when it warms. At cooler temps you really get some acicid burnt coffee notes, and some cocoa. Dark chocolate comes out as it warms along with some very light spicy bourbon notes. Has a rich and chewy mouthfeel and really takes over the whole palate. Finishes with that bitter coffee roastiness and a tad of vanilla extract. Tasty

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2009 Bottle. Aroma as good as it can get, hence the 10. Strong notes of typical stout aromas, coffee, chocolate, dark malts, lightly citrusy hop presence, but what puts this over the top is a luscious presence of rich, sweet alcohol meshing, blending, and supporting the other aromas. The flavor sort of falls back a bit. The same notes are there, but the alcohol seems to just sit there for me without adding and blending, leading to some sips tasting really, really good, other sips feeling a little light on flavor and heavy on alcohol. Palate also fluctuates from this odd alcohol presence, sometimes feeling weak, but by the end of the beer feels nothing other than rich and silky smooth. From the aroma, I was expecting a no-question Top 50 brew, but in the mouth I still had some questions. 10-5-7-4-14/4.0

Rerate after having consumed many bottles, too lazy to say much, but there are many coffee beers and many stouts/impy stouts I prefer to this and it just doesnt get the job done in comparison for me.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 17, 2008
66 cl bottle courtesy jerc, bottled on 16 01 2007. Very thick and viscous looking opaque dark brown with a thin but lively creamy brown foam. Huge chocolate, roasty coffee, cream, and caramel aroma. Dark roasted coffee, chocolate, light citrus, and caramel flavours with a vinous, fruity, acidic, and roasty bitter finish. Full bodied, chewy, soft, and lightly warming mouthfeel. Not overly complex, but a good, rich, straightforward coffee stout that drinks nicely on this cold winter night.

shadey (2096) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 16, 2008
Bottle acquired in trade. Relatively fresh bottle. Poured an oily black with a head of only tiny tan swirls. The mild but stiff coffee aroma is well done; not too harsh. The flavor is just as good. After seeing the ratings, I expected huge and in-your-face monster. This is neither. This is smooth, reserved, well-balanced and very easy to drink. A very nice coffee beer. The body is smooth with just a bite o sharp carbonation.

rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 16, 2008
Black, thick brown head. Nose is coffee, dark malt, grains, cocoa, cream, dark fruits/cherries. Flavor is coffee & cocoa, a hint of burnt. Not overly assertive in its bitterness. Coffee is a bit simple, but nice enough. Sweetness comes through in the finish rounding things out.

TAR (2708) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - JAN 14, 2008
Cellar-aged two years: Penetrable black. Creamy beige ring of head surrounds a broken center. Decent aroma of ink, soy sauce, charcoal, and chocolate-covered espresso beans. Mild waft of smoke. Tight, spongy carbonation. Thin body. Quite airy with subtle phenols and dry roast, initially, yet bittersweet and succulent at the center, as chocolate-infused raisins and dried plums primarily exude. Whispers of smoke and bright java soon link up with the brisk char to deepen the rich malts. Substantial dryness lifts the fruity esters and unveils a forceful espresso and cocoa-tinged bitterness which remain strong throughout. Acidic twinge gently buckles the cheeks and lessens, rather than underscore, the malt complexity. Gritty char unrelentingly scratches at the fruity surface. Anticlimactic finish is curiously empty, as bittersweet espresso echoes hints of burnt cookies and metallic char. While some extra age hasnt necessarily hurt this, it certainly hasnt helped as its now overly dry, and hollow as a result. The high score is a bit puzzling. Sure, coffee and chocolate make for a savory combination, but it takes much more than that (finesse, balance, cleanness, etc.) for a beer to reach elite status. On top of that, the yeast fails to impart anything uniquely of character. Decent overall.
