Couple of bottles of this. I’m a bit disappointed in the taste. There’s roastiness on top, but underneath it seems thin, as if lacking proper malt. It comes across as too bitter and rough. Would have been better with some sweetness.
12oz bottle Pour is VERY dark, head is thin but persistent. Aromas of vanilla cocoa dominate, Bittersweet chocolate with a slight spicy aftertaste. Above average but not outstanding in my opinion. Worth a try. brownaler (660) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 7, 2017

Coffee and chocolate heaven. Black bottle pour at the met in Boston. One of the better coffee stouts I've had. gripweed57 (2444) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAR 27, 2017
12 ouounce bottle. Pours dark brown with a large rocky tan head. Subtle roasted malt nose hints at chocolate and coffee. Flavor is espresso and bittersweet chocolate. Slightly earthy with sweet notes. Full bodied with a chewy mouthfeel. Finishes with bitter, spicy hops. A very good coffee stout.

Geruch nach Schokolade, Beeren und Rotwein sowie Tabak. Geschmack leider nicht so voll und rund sondern eher kantig, sehr bitter und kratzig im Abgang. unclefrito62 (276) - Stow, Ohio, USA - JAN 18, 2017
12 ounce bottle. Hints of chocolate and coffee for the aroma. Pitch black in color. Sweet, taste of bitter chocolate. Smooth on the palate with a little after bite. Overall this is above average stout. partchapol (128) - Ohio, USA - DEC 24, 2016
