    Not sure where I got this bottle, but been a while. Still, says before 2026 on cap. Pours a dark brown colour with some light ruby highlights. The head is mocha-coloured, good retention and some decent creamy thin lacing. Lots of dark fruits in the aromas with mild liquorice, chocolate and coffee. The taste shows the roasted malt, liquorice, hints of coffee and with some nice hops in the finish with give a little grassiness, and good dryness. This cuts the richness of the malt. I do not feel the coffee comes out on its own in here, so maybe a little old, or just well-blended. Not bad, but I guess - was expecting more.

    500ml bottle from Bistro l'Autre Oeil. Pours a very minimal amount of head and pretty much disappears immediately. Has a pitch black coloured appearance. Lacing is weak. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, cocoa, hints of raisins, resin hops. Flavours are a grab bag of sweets, cocoa, chocolate, coffee and much more. Some notes earthy and resin hops. Great retention. Slick and oily mouthfeel. Had a little bit of soft chunks in the finish, like really thick sediments had formed. Was kind of off-putting. Overall was pretty good but maybe it was left aside for quite a while.

    Poured with a pitch black body topped off by a small dark brown head that dissipated leaving light patchy lace. The aroma was full of espresso with some dark chocolate. Mouthfeel was rich, medium to full bodied with a light creaminess. Flavor was again dark chocolate and espresso with some smoky, burnt flavors as well.

    Pours darker than the night with a sub one finger chocolate milk colored head that lofts a bit. Well carbonated. Aroma is of dark malts, coffee, oats, and brewers liquorice. Taste is fairly tame on the taste but make up for it with the texture. Hints of coffee, dark roasted malts and bitterness. Very, very creamy. Spendy but I just love this beer!

    Everything is good about this beer and is great with breakfast. Fabulous long lasting brown head. Although it doesn't leave much lacing. Strong coffee aroma. Very strong roasted malt, burnt flavour, strong coffee, dark chocolate, some smokiness and bitterness. Medium/full mouthfeel. Very nice. Should try this on Weetabix.

    Smells of cold brewed coffee, cold coffee in gereral.... medium roast. Medium in body, slightly more sweet than bitter but aftertaste features some bitter coffee that tickles the back and sides of my tounge. Touch of hay on the nose, and mollasses. Touch of raisins minus the fruit whatever that means. I was suprised that this beer was as simple as it was. A really stellar coffee stout but really was simple in flavour, drinkable in body and really nice. Really well made, just nothing to make it incredible

    For as much as this cost I was expecting a better beer, but still, this is good. Not anywhere near Founders, slightly too alcohol flavor and not enough balance. Overall I wouldn't go after this again but worth trying at least once.

    I've been cellaring this under my bed for almost a week. Couldn't wait any longer. Pours about as dark as any commercial beer I've seen. Thick, brownish head subsided a little too quickly for my liking. So much coffee flavour, and lightly carbonated, just right. So thick, so dark, almost chewy. No, definitely chewy. Flavours of burnt toast, a lot of roasted malts, and coffee, coffee, coffee. The chocolate flavour comes out a little as it warms, as does a surprisingly wonderful sourness. I've had smoother stouts, I've had silkier stouts, I've had stronger stouts, but I've never had a superior stout.

    Without a doubt the best coffee flavored stouts that I have come across. Rather silky smooth mouth character, interesting "just before dawn" color, full flavored and a bit pricy for an everyday drink. So if your in need of a "breakfast pick-me-up" pick one one of these and enjoy.

    A truly outstanding beer, although it loses a notch as I prefer the weasel version to the regular version. Gotta love that coffee flavour! Another highly recommended brew.
