A-Black body. Half finger of brown head. Dots of spotty lace spill down side of glass fast. Retains a great thin top layer of head until the last sip. Glass will be left with sticky lace. Love how the head swirled with the body on top to give decorative espresso-art like designs.

S-Roasted malt and chocolate. Strong coffee. Warm rum notes when inhaled deeply. Raisins. Oats. Graham. Molasses. Wet brown paper-bag. The brew smells cold and dank. Then gets sour, sweet and sticky. Terrific transformation. Meets all the set standards of a double stout and even strengthens and improves on said standard. "Super Stout" smells.

T-Caramel and chocolate malts abound. Quality coffee washes over. Hops are resinous and green. Leafy even. Citrus interestingly comes to play with orange & grapefruit upfront. Mellow citrus mind you, and dipped in chocolate in taste. Dark sour fruits as well are detected. Not too oat driven in flavor where you think "Oatmeal Stout!", but the oats are there. An array of flavors that are genuine and most importantly strong & everlasting.

M-Medium-high body. Heavy and full with enough creamy touch swirled in. Medium carbonation that sizzles. Tongue is coated and oily. Going down the neck the body is thick and gelatinous. This heaviness is softened to a creamier self with time. The sip starts sweet, roasted and bitter like hops/black coffee. The middle is the aforementioned which is interesting. The end is dark sour fruit with a stronger bitter finish of resinous pine & weed. Very sticky, lips will stick to glass.

O-When one category can't be pin-pointed as your favorite, you are dealing with a monster brew. Everything is in tune, cranked UP even, to a higher state of bliss. Something I noted was that on warming, the beer didn't spoil into a sour-prune state like most stouts do. It retained the smoky-resinous-chocolate-coffee flavor until the last drop. With drops of citrusy hop sneaking in, what else could you want in flavor? Top shelf stout. An 11.2 oz. bottle does the job.
This beer is the civet-shit!

No bottle date, poured into a teku

A- Pours pitch black with a dark tan creamy and silky head that retains long after the pour, leaving some nice lace behind

S- big fresh coffee notes with bitter-sweet dark chocolate, roasty & slightly smoky malt, also picking up a fruity berry-like aroma

T- dark and bitter chocolate up front tastes like a artisan dark chocolate bar, fresh espresso coffee kicks in mid-palate and meshes perfectly with the dark chocolate. Fresh cream flavor with a hint of oat adds an incredible smoothness, fruity berries add a light sweetness. The finish gives more dark chocolate with a slightly bitter finish

M- medium body and low carbonation lead to an incredibly smooth mouthfeel and a silky and velvety finish. Just a hint of alcohol at the end, incredibly smooth and drinkable

O- I had the calvados version and loved it, so I was looking forward to trying the base beer, this didn't disappoint. The coffee flavor is world class and mixes brilliantly with dark chocolate malt flavors with a perfect mouthfeel. World class

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - 4 - dark brown black beer with an initial mocha head that immediately fades to nothing.
S - 4 - coffee, roasted malts, chocolate, oatmeal, nothing too crazy or special
T - 4 - again, coffee, oatmeal, roasted malts, chocolate, plus maybe a tiny bit of burnt flavors, even burnt rubber
M - 4 - its' pretty creamy and chocolate milkshake like, but I'm finding with coffee stouts that the coffee decreases the complexity a lot of the time because it's overpowering. Thick mouthfeel tho, alc covered, aftertaste = coffee.
O - 4 - I'd love to try this with the other coffee stouts (Founders Breakfast Stout, Santa Fe Imperial Java Stout) and see whose shines above the rest.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

not sure how i have missed this base version, i have had a number of its barrel aged variants, and loved every expensive drop. this one is far less intimidating both in price and in looks in the glass. its not so black or so dense, less concentrated than those little bottles of heaven. bakers chocolate in color, oatmeal colored and textured head with excellent retention. a handful of yeast bits in to the bottom of the glass are noticeable if i really focus in on them. the aroma of this beer is great, but not as coffee forward as i expected it to be, or as i remember the others being. its sweet and subtle coffee, no bitterness at all, just a little of that from the high levels of roasted barley here. more earthy than bitter, with a chocolate milky sweetness towards the end. the flavor agrees with the nose, and the coffee serves only to accent, not flavor, this brew. i love the frothy sweetness in the finish, which is inextricably linked to its velvety and expansive texture. i get almost toasted marshmallow in this, more like a cappuccino rather than a normal cup of joe, lots of milk froth type balance to this. for a big black stout this is remarkably elegant, with well hidden alcohol strength and a pillowy mouthfeel that stays on the tongue. gently flavored with the coffee too, an enormously difficult task in brewing from what i understand. world class coffee stout, with very few equals, but i prefer the barrel aged variants, they take this to the next level. really nice to finally have the base beer through.
