650 ml bottle at Garrison Ale House. Opaque dark brown colour with a fully diminishing frothy tan head. Fruity, vinous, coffee and light chocolate aroma. Big roasty coffee, chocolate, and vinous fruit flavours with a bittersweet vinous, fruity, and lightly roasty finish. Full bodied, creamy, rich, and smooth mouthfeel. Tasty stout.
Black, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts. Malty flavour, light bitter. Malty finish, roasted malts, dark bread crust and burned caramel. Decent, but too roasty for me.jbruner (5121) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 6, 2017
(from 65cL bottle @ RBBSG '17. Thanks for sharing, hamirubi!)
Pours a deep brownish black on tap with bubbly tan brown head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of mild chocolate and earthy roast, a touch of burnt coffee. Taste is smoother, good roast, good chocolate, good earthy hop, mild fruity yeast. A solid stout. 77ships (10770) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 28, 2017
Thanks to Hamirubi! 650 ml. bottle sampled @ RBBSG17. Black, little head. Nose is herbal cacao, chocolate, overly roasted malt. Thick herbal cacao, chocolate, heavy roast, low burned malts,… Bitter cacao bodied. Too roasted for me & not as thick as you would hope, expected more from a beer that is top 50 in its style.

Sampled @ RBBSG 2017. Opaque pitch black color, average sized beige to brown head. Aroma and flavor is malts, dark malts, some roast, malt bitter, milk chocolate. Nice! ! TimE (6067) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 19, 2017
Pitch black color. Thin brown head with notes of coffee, molasses, caramel, dark chocolate in the nose. The mouth starts rich, dry, with lots of roasted malt and dark chocolate character. A bit too acrid for my liking. Solid bitter finish with dark chocolate notes. OK, but didn’t match my expectations.

Bottle purchased locally in Seattle Aug. 2017. This beer is delicious. It’s quite dark, strong, chocolate/coffee taste and despite a 7.0% ABV it’s easy to drink. I will DEFINITELY have this again.

Tasty coffee-ish stout on tap at World Beer "Museum" in Osaka (Umeda). Crisp, clean, slight walnut tree type smell. Great head that lasts a while. Super dark; light does not penetrate even when help up to lights. Traditional roasted nut and coffee flavors. Saliva glands respond well. Will definitely drink many more of these. Top shelf! katrinaez (2175) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2017
Wonderful aroma of rich malts. Pours dark brown with lots of tan head. Smokey taste upfront with a thick mouthfeel. Finishes with the standard malts of a stout. Some bitter tobacco taste. Well done. Bottle.
