AirForceHops (6858) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 24, 2017
12 oz. bottle from a trade with Adrien. 2016 vintage. Very thin lasting white head in my BCS snifter. Aroma is she cute roasted coffee beans with a mild whiskey undertones. The coffee bean is earthy and bold.

Yes, yes, yes!!! The flavor is a wonderful medley of coffee bean, roasted malts, brownie batter, and a mild lingering whiskey in the finish. One on the better BA coffee stouts I have had in recent memory. Not sure what was wrong with previous batches but this is Marvelous!!

This thing is dark and very acidic. The coffee is the most assertive part of this beer, but it could use more chocolate sweet balance. Still a very good imperial stout.

Beaver (1746) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 20, 2017
12 oz bottle. Pours dark inky black with a wispy brown head that quickly goes to a thin collar that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is nutty fudgy malts, oakey vanilla bourbon, and roast coffee with a little fruitcake.

The flavor is sweet sugary fruitcake and light bourbon with some black licorice and a heavy roast finish with a bit of an alcohol burn. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, if only it tasted as good as it smelled. Its too sweet (probably to try to get the alcohol up) with an attempt to balance with the heavy bitter roast. I dont really get any coffee flavor. Still interesting though.

mcberko (16245) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 12, 2017
12 oz. bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out loads of coffee upfront, followed by a little vanilla. Flavour is huge on the coffee upfront, followed by vanilla and alcohol. Shitloads of coffee on the finish, with medium sweetness. Luxurious. Excellent.

ajnepple (6015) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2017
Fresh 12 oz single bottle from Mile High Wine & Spirits. Black appearance with a brown head. Aroma of coffee, espresso, vanilla, roasted malt, dark chocolate, light caramel and a hint of bourbon. Similar flavor, smooth, rich, complex and bittersweet with a lingering finish. Full body with soft carbonation and a creamy feel with lingering espresso finish. This new batch is tasting great.

phaleslu (9848) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2017
12 oz. bottle via local trade. Pours a deep brown, nearly opaque with amber edges and a small tan head that settles into a ring and wispy film. Coffee, obviously, with vanilla, brown sugar, caramel, charred oak, chocolate, roasted malts, and faint vanilla. Medium-plus bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, boozy, roasty, toasty, smooth mouthfeel. This is eye opening. I cant believe prior ratings are so low. Try the new batch, its awesome. This must not have been as dialed in before. As far as Im concerned, its the best Noir Ive had to date; I think Pirate is my only untried version.

mikeymike (67) - Kansas, USA - DEC 30, 2016
12 oz bottle. Pours pitch black with a minimal head. Aroma is straight coffee - to the point is smells like a bucket of folgers. No barrel at all in the aroma. Taste is again, straight coffee; however, there is good malty sweetness and a hint of the barrel to balance it out. Medium to full bodied with a oily mouthfeel. A solid barrel aged coffee stout.
