tmoreau (3919) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Shared bomber, poured to snifters, and displayed a darkest brown color, with a modest layer of tan head foam, and light dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was subtle, but noticeable enough notes of roasted malt, mocha, and vanilla. Medium bodied, with low carbonation, low hop bitterness, hidden alcohol, and pleasant sweetness into the finish. Not wowed, but decently drinkable.

umich03jm (3513) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - MAR 12, 2014
Bottle thanks to FullObs. Batch 248/250/252, about 4 months old. Pours very dark brown with a small head that quickly fades to a thin ring. Aroma is nice fresh light roasted coffee, some light sweet lactose, vanilla, cocoa, and caramel. Coffee is the dominant taste and theres a great sweet/bitter balance. Chocolate, caramel, vanilla, and light burnt wood make it through well too. Solid coffee stout that hides the high abv very well.

maneliquor (3495) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 11, 2013
Bottle with a big thanks to Ken. Pours dark brown with a small off white head which quickly disappears. Nose is big and bitter espresso, vanilla essence and pepper and spice. Taste is very espresso like, moderate dates, big tobacco, rich and burnt brown sugar sweetness. Very ashy. Balanced ok for a big coffee beer. Not bad
