Three thousand feet above sea level in the misty mountains of Jamaica, some of the worlds finest Arabica beans are hand picked on their way to becoming Blue Mountain Coffee. Halfway around the world, plump spring barley grows to maturity in the loamy soil of North America while aromatic hops are cutivated to exacting standards. Here in our kettles, these three special ingredients are blended to create a heady mixture of sweet sugar, dark roast, and complex flavor. Please enjoy this brew in moderation.

demolayfire (18) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 12, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2006 Thanks to ChrisO. and JoyC. for the bottle. Pitch black, dense milk chocolate colored head. Aroma is almost entirely fresh ground coffee and bitter chocolate with a subdued alcohol presence. My favorite aspect of this great stout is the milk shake viscosity. It coats your mouth leaving behind a roasted mocha profile that seems to linger for ages. Im not sure of the original source of the bottle or how old it was, but the 12% alcohol was barely noticable except for the wonderful whiskeyish warming in my belly. I would recommend serving this seductive stout close to room temp.

Jet black and thick as oil. Nice, fine-bubble tan head...almost nitrogen like. Aroma is very chocolate and coffee. Flavor is totally dominated by rich mocha. Heavy body. A delight to drink. I dont remember finding any alcohol in it.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 11, 2006
Bottle at Volo shared with GregClow and DougShoemaker. Pitch black, small brown head. Lots of hops come through, but are dominated by the coffee and roast in aroma. Oh yeah, some alcohol too (more on that in a bit). Thick rich coffee taste at first and then a tidal wave of alcohol - way too much. Lingering hops come through once alcohol wears off. Better as it warms - this was served at cellar temperature and we still had to wait more than 20 minutes before the alcohol diminished enough to make it drinkable. Complex and full of flavour, this one will definitely improve with age.

Sammy (11945) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2006
Black, with lessening heads following successive pours of the bomber. Clean coffee aroma. Intense and smooth, very creamy coffee taste with high alcohol. Suprising I could do the bomber me own self. Medium to full mouthfeel.The bewery has produced a praiseworthy effort

Radek Kliber (7293) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - APR 10, 2006
Bottle at Volo. First of all I must mention that this monstrum have 32 Plato rating. Pours thick, black sludge. Creamy fine crown on top. Full set aroma, dry mocha, milk chocolate, hint of almonds, just some alcohol noticed. Full bodied, almost overwhelming filling. After initial palate shock noticed roasted coffee mocha notes, medium bitter finish. For single use only.

GregClow (3389) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2006
Bottle at Volo - shared with tupalev & DougShoemaker. Deep black-brown with a small tan head. Big, oily coffee aroma with warm booze notes - smells more like a coffee liqueur than a coffee beer. Big flavour as well - lots of dark roasted coffee, bitter chocolate, dark dried fruit, a hint of smoke and wood. I only have two complaints - the body is a bit on the thin side, and the alcohol is too pronounced in the finish. Its still damn good, but I expect this will age nicely and turn into a absolutely astounding beer in a year or so.

sersdf (1020) - chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 8, 2006
UPDATED: APR 9, 2006 jaw-dropping. had one two days ago and it was so good i bought another for yesterday. very chocolatey aroma, tastes like pure espresso. a great way to start off the day, i cant help but wonder whether coffees stimulant properties or alcohols depressive qualities win out. also, i just remembered that the flavor was somewhat cloying

DavidP (1748) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 4, 2006
Coffee and milk chocolate aroma with hickory and light booze. Dark brown body, wisply tan head. Sweet intense chocolate flavor iwht dry coffee higlights and lots of booze. Mouth-tingly booze, enough to numb the tongue.

puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - APR 3, 2006
Wow. This beer blows you away. Aroma is strikingly coffee and rich dark malt, but the flavor is where this really shines. Immediate, pounding chocolate and marshmellow, late bitterness with creamy filling smooth palate, and the coffee is fresh and delicious. Ive got a bottle of blue mountain liquor at home, straight from jamaica, and the flavor of this matches that very closely. A fabulous brew.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - APR 2, 2006
Thanks to DavidP for sharing this one. Pours a very dark almost pitch black color, small off white head. Aroma is coffee and scotch. Flavor is very strong, robust coffee and bourbon. Very boozy and strong, hot almost, needs some time in the bottle to chill out.
