UPDATED: JUN 11, 2012 Bottle a Mes Tasting. Pours muddy black with a large, beige head. Espresso and mocha on the nose. Glavor is good and sweet, plenty of tar, chocolate syrup, coffee beans, light vanilla, booze, charred and roasted malts. Full in body with lively, chewy carbonation and lots of alcohol warmth. Roasty chocolate finish, lots of boozy tang, some coffee bitterness and some dark sugar. Really nice stuff. (4.4)Rasmus40 (21690) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2012
Bottle shared with Paul at the Hoppy Loft, Brussels. Pours deep and dark with a huge, brown foam head. Super thick head. Massive espresso nose. Sweet flavor with big coffee character. Lots of roast. Some chocolate syrup. Full bodied with medium, creamy carbonation. Cocoa and coffee dominate the finish. Awesome beer. (4.5)
Bottle from Ølbutikken. Black with a big and lasting dark brown head. Aroma is sweet, roasted malt and coffee. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and roasted rather bitter finish. Oily. 130912 Koelschtrinker (21175) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 5, 2011
Herber und sehr stark malziger Antrunk mit deutlichen Kaffeenoten, die dazu noch sehr frisch wirken, was bei ähnlichen Bieren meist nicht der Fall ist. Due Malzigkeit ist dabei unglaublich kompley, neben den dominierenden Kaffeenoten gibt es noch Pflaumenaromen neben weiteren vergorenen Fruchtnoten. Frisch, fruchtig, höchstzmalzig, komples. Noch ewig lange hat man das tiefe Malz auf der Zunge. Top! 12/15/12/14//14

Extreme dark brown verging on black the mocha head soon thins to absolutely nothing.
Big espresso coffee nose, sweet roasted malts, more espresso and a little tirimisu.
Tastes of espresso, sweet dark sugars, chocolate, coffee.
The alcohol is very well disguised and integrated into the beer.
Full bodied, a little soft carbonation with an espresso finish. Very smooth.
Great coffee imperial stout, but I enjoyed the Mocha bomb more. saxo (19270) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2012
Bottle. Huge creamy head with excellent duration. Color is black. Aroma and taste are rich coffee, roast malt, chocolate, caramel and hops. Awesome beer. harrisoni (19165) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2010
On tap at Pre ZBF 2010 and bottle at Mes’ Bite Hat Moon tasting. Wow that is a lot of coffee on the aroma. Massive coffee. Very smooth in the mouth and in the swallow. Lots of coffee on the end too. Lovely. Slightly drier in the bottle and the coffee is more balanced. Exceptional, if you love coffee, you will love this beer. rlgk (18852) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2012
Bottle. Pitch black, nice lasting brown head. Coffee aroma, bitter, milky, tobacco, vanilla, chocolate, cocoa, tar, smoked. Coffee flavor, licorice, cocoa, tar, vanilla, roasted, smoked notes, hoppy, dry woody notes. Coffee finish, roasted and almost sourish. mcberko (18557) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 7, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2012 11.2 oz. bottle, pours pitch black with a small brown head. Aroma of dark roasted espresso beans, burnt / roasted malt, and tar - very darkly roasted. First sip reveals an intensely flavourful and sticky, syrupy impie, with notes of caramel, dark roasted espresso, syrup, berries, rum and vanilla. Palate is extremely viscous and sticky, with the rum barrels ending off. Very complex and rum-dominant, though bordering on too rich. Excellent.
