Bottle 180 of 2000. Black body with a thin cover of cream-white head. No lacing.

Cardboard, dust and boiled broccoli are the first thing I notice on the nose; not too pleasant. Light roast malt, coffee and minerals underneath.

The off-scents don't show up in the mouth, thankfully, but what's here is pretty bland. Weak roast malt, stale drip coffee, dusty hops, bit of cocoa, touch of caramel sweetness. Dirty coffee grounds linger in the mouth.

Medium-light body and a touch over-carbonated. Nothing too bad.

This is average at best. The coffee ends up tasting cheap and the rest of the beer is uninteresting. I drink a lot of good coffee; however the coffee was incorporated here isn't working for me. Not one of the better coffee stouts I've tried.

Draft: Poured a black color stout with a small dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of coffee is dominant but not overly dry with some roasted malt notes. Taste is a great mix between some dry roasted malt with some good notes of coffee with light black chocolate notes. Body is full with good carbonation. Well brewed with great balance to avoid too much dryness.

The sticker on the bottle says: Coffee Beer.

Black color beer, not very dark but dark enough for a stout. No head. The aroma is strong coffee. No hops, however it is inviting for a sip, if you like coffee. Taste is very coffee-like. I would say like a Ice Coffee. The bitterness, similar to a coffee, lingers in the mouth and feels good. Some chocolate in there too. I don't get the chocolate on the aroma but on the taste only.

A little bit thin for a stout. Still an excellent beer if you ask me.

Only 1000 bottled beers. Bottle #269.

Appearance: It has a nice jet black color to it. It has a nice thick mocha colored head that dies down moderately and leaves some nice spotty lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of coffee, dark chocolate roasted malts and some vanilla.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some coffee notes upfront, some bitter dark chocolate, roasted malts and some really faint vanilla.

Mouthfeel: It has a low carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel but it's a touch on the light bodied side.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with decent flavors and aromas.

This is a special release from Le Bilboquet, and only 2000 bottles where made. I got #324/2000 and it is a 500 ml bottle.

The beer is pitch black, with a cappuccino colored creamy head. There was about one inch in a pint glass.
The aroma's are of burnt grains, coffee and a hint of vanilla.
The taste is coffee upfront, with its bitterness, a malty sweetness, some chocolate and a final of vanilla. This is very complex.
The mouthfeel is very thick and creamy, its full-bodied and has the right amount of carbonation.
This is an excellent stout, very complex and well balanced. I will go get another bottle before they are all out!!
