22 oz bomber. Pours a rich, deep black color with a nice tan head. Thick lacing. Aroma is quite sweet up front, with raisins and chocolate malt. Flavor is very complex, quite sweet and yeasty, with chocolate and coffee undertones. There is a strong, but not unpleasant alcohol flavor as well. This beer also has a very malty aftertaste, which I didn’t appreciate at first. The mouthfeel is thick and velvety. Overall this is a great beer. Really perfect for the cold weather setting in.
22 oz bottle via trade from backlog notes. Pours dark brown to black in color with a medium plus sized tan head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, dark chocolate, some coffee, earthy bitterness, drinks bigger than the 7%, solid stout. shawnmurphy (495) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - JUN 28, 2017

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.

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. tmongoose (2504) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 19, 2017

Taster at brewpub. Pours deep deep tan, brown head. Smells of cark chocolate and smoke and coffee. Good initial hit of burnt malt and coffee, but it’s a little thin for the abv. Very drinkable for a strong beer. Decent. Panzuriel (2256) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2016
