KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2012
22oz Bottle. The pour was a pitch jet black with an average (1-2 finger) light cocoa brown rocky head that was mostly diminishing, down to a thin film and small collar with poor runny lacing. The aroma was very robust of a burnt biscuit mat, light resin hops and a strong earthy yeast with notes of dark chocolate, roasted coffee, molasses, vanilla, a mild smokiness and a slight alcohol tinge. The taste was bitter sweet with a nice malty feel and had notes of bitter chocolate and molasses from the beginning, progressing slightly into a purely bitter taste with a huge coffee presence and a mild smoky finish. The flavor lasted a very long time after the swallow with a bold smooth bitter coffee taste left to linger for quit a while. Mouthfeel was full in body with a dry, oily texture and a solid medium carbonation. Overall this was a boldly robust brew with a strong bitter mocha / coffee taste that is offset slightly by a mild sweetness, and was done very well may I say. Making this a very enjoyable tasty brew with a superb drinkability...

tightslice (1158) - Redwood City, California, USA - NOV 3, 2016
On Nitro at Gourmet Haus Staudt in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is roasted malts, some coffee, mild beef jerky. Taste is smooth, tangy and finishes with a bitter coffee note. Ultimately not bad, especially for a Foreign Stout, but was expecting something a little more special.
