Nice coffee sweet beer. Thin fading head. Sweetness and thickness. Dark Carmel and coffee. Lots of flavors.

12oz can. 2016 vintage. Appearance: Jet black, opaque, with a low lying khaki brown head.
Aroma: Wow. Really strong rich roasted coffee dominates. A touch of dark chocolate is there, but the coffee roastiness is the main factor here.
Taste: Starts with a rich dark chocolate, slowly turning over to a deep, rich coffee and a moderately high bitterness. Coffee character on the backside overrides the other flavors.
Mouthfeel: Relatively heavy bodied with some creaminess from the oatmeal, and a light carbonation.
Finish: Some bitterness lingers, but mostly a dark chocolate roasted malt character.
Overall: One of the more coffee forward takes on the style, with an aroma that sets itself apart. This beer has some nice dark chocolate undertones, but really shines for the coffee character. Oatmeal adds some viscosity to the mouthfeel, but a bit of a boost in that side would be welcomed. ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - DEC 13, 2016
Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a pitch black color with a thick brown head. The aroma is roasted malt. The taste is malt and coffee. libertine (434) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - SEP 29, 2016
Pours black with a minimal brown head. The coffee is upfront in the aroma. Earthy with notes of vanilla light smoke. The coffee also dominates the flavor with earthy notes and vanilla. Body is a bit thin for a stout. Lasting dry finish. Good but a bit overhyped.

Aroma is rich with chocolate, followed by a full bodied & robust coffee flavour on the palate layered across a crisp oatmeal stout foundation. Slight hints of vanilla are present along the edges of a molasses cookie richness. The finish is very satisfying, bringing grassy notes forward as the coffee complexity lingers. From the tap at Beverage World - Delicious!

DATE: July 24, 2016... OCCASION: a HOT summer day turns to a night of AC that will pair well with this stout... GLASSWARE: Duvel snifter... this "monster beer" pours a pitch-black body, a ring of brown, thin, bubbly head, and a nebula swirl in its middle... with the weighty alcohol content, this is a good-looking beer... robust espresso brine--like damp or dank decaff--blams the nostrils, with oatmeal and rum-like ethanol... a lively, instantaneously warming impact accompanies the smooth, creamy body that is beyond sippable for the power it packs... halfway through, the beer continues to deliver a stunning combination of peat, smoke and salty oatmeal with an intense chocolate and coffee bean punch... having trouble finding holes in this profile.. perhaps the only regret is this isn’t a bomber.... from its name to its label, from its impact to its flavor, quite impressive... I would seek this out again in a heartbeat, and what a boon from a breakpack mix... Mark_Eck (1998) - - JUL 16, 2016

Pours a deep dark brown with a nice tan head. Chocolate/espresso aromas. Tastes just like it smells, deep coffee and chocolate flavors. Excellent!!!
