Boutip (6179) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 26, 2015
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of strong dry bitter coffee notes with some roasted malt is dominant. Taste is also dominated by strong dry coffee notes that also veered into astringency territory. Some black chocolate notes are also perceptible. Body is about average with nice level of carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not bad but coffee notes are almost too powerful for the overall balance of this beer.

RobertDale (6151) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - DEC 14, 2016
22 ounce bottle. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of coffee, malt, and chocolate. Taste is coffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate, and a bit of vanilla. Very nice.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 30, 2013
In short: A basic big coffee stout. Just ok.
How: Bottle 22oz, post-HF FoFA 2013.
The look: Black body topped by a small tan head.
In long: The strong nose is intense used coffee filter along with some charcoal. In mouth the beer offers a thick heavy body that is carbonated enough. Taste is overcooked caramel, old cup of black coffee, mild vanilla notes. A bit of a boiled vegetables flavor developing from the high roast. A straightforward coffee stout which unfortunately didnt offer a fun coffee character, too much like used coffee filter instead of nice roasted coffee beans. Decent beer but slightly below average for the style. And on a more linguistic note, I think Abduction is too strong of a word when talking about kidnapping of a young children, I prefer to call it Surprise Adoption.

nuplastikk (6058) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 1, 2014
22oz bomber. Brown black body,some translucent edges, the beige head that fades out pretty quick. You certainly get the added vanilla...it gives it a very sweet, sugary feel. A pretty good adjunct Imperial Stout....sort of like a Southern Tier beer but more centered around the additional flavors. As the bottle says, this is a Latte Stout. Tasty, but not really a beer I want to drink the whole bottle of. The vanilla-chocolate-coffee combination is massive, and there is some depth in that regard. Pretty mellow on the palate for 10.5%. Should lose points for the FIBalicious office white boy art, but Ill try and forgive them for that.

ajnepple (6015) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 13, 2017
Draft at Tivoli Brewing Tap House. Black appearance with a tan head, mostly dissipating. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malt and light earth. Similar flavor, rich, dark and malty with moderate sweetness and light to mild bitterness. Medium to full body with a lasting bttersweet finish. Nice.

No head. Very sweet coffee and milk aroma. Taste is cocoa milky vanilla and sweet. Will keep the same numbers - just tastes different than I thought 2 years ago

thedm (6006) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 22, 2013
This bottled brew from a rating party poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized brown colored bubbles that were and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark brown colored body and a fair lacing. . The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering mild roasted malt aftertaste. The strong flavor contained notes of mildly vinous roasted malt coffee brown malt and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

22 ounce bottle shared thanks to my buddy Josh. Pours a thicker black with a khaki colored head of foam. The aroma is rich coffee roast and earth. The taste is coffee roast and bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and moderate carbonation.
