Black as night. Thick, viscous, and chewy. Aroma and taste of jockstrap molasses, fudge sauce, toasty coffee, stewed plum and darkfruit, as well as a pervasive boozy note. A pretty solid beer to sip on, but I think this one could really benefit from time. It could age well for a good chunk of years I think.

L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a jet black color and a thick consistency. There was a small amount of foamy, tan-colored head that quickly dissipated. Fair lacing.

S: A nice aroma of coffee, chocolate, malt, and some dark fruit.

T: Tasted of a fair shot of dark chocolate, a good amount of coffee, some roasted malt, dark fruit (a little bit of plum), light hops, and a bit of caramel. A very solid flavor that's not as heavy on the coffee as I thought it might be. Still, it's a pretty well done flavor.

F: A decent amount of carbonation with a very smooth finish. Medium- to full-bodied.

O: While this beer has some minor flaws, it's still incredibly drinkable. Worth a look.

Big stout, big coffee. Pour is jet black, dark tan head. Aromas are HUGE dark chocolate/char and heavy coffee (from the Philippines).

The taste is heavy on the dark chocolate up front, but the coffee is very present as the beer warms. If you like coffee stouts, this is an excellent example of the style.

2016 bottle...NOT shared...in fact, I poured it into one of them full 750 holding bruery glasses. Upon first sips, really nice....good stout flavor with a heavy handed dose of what feels like cold brew. The coffee cuts through really well and compliments the beer...if not overbears it. Good flavor, not such a massive beer like so many other bruery beers, but this 750 is gonna be a bit of a chore, but much like making my bed and mowing the lawn...I work hard for my money so this chore will be completed without haste. Happy to have tried, not something I'd look for again, but definitely worth the tick.

A 750ml bottle, batch #315, bottled on 2nd May 2016. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.

Appearance: Dark dark brown in colour with an almost two finger dark mocha head that had pretty good retention and left some lacing.

Aroma: Dark roast coffee, dark fruit plum and raisins, molasses and dark chocolate.

Taste: Dark fruited chocolate, cherry and plum sweetness, molasses, booze. Only light coffee notes along with hints of caramel.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium to full bodied with light carbonation and a hint of alcohol.

Overall: The coffee flavours were not as strong as I would have expected. To be fair, it has been almost one year since bottling, but there are many examples of Coffee Stouts, where the coffee has held up really well. Having said that, this bottle is still tasty and really easy to drink, and whereas some Imperial Stouts I can sip for hours, I have pretty much finished this 750ml bottle in less than an hour, which is really fast for me, for a beer with double digit ABV%.

Pours a deep dark brown/black with a finger and a half of rootbeer head. Head breaks slowly leaving some nice lacing behind. The smell is dominated by coffee and roasts. Toffee is also present. The taste is pure rich coffee with some toffee, chocolate and vanilla also present. Feel is a smooth and velvety with a moderate carbonation. A nice beer. If I had one problem, it would be that it were a bit too sweet. Otherwise a damn nice beer, that I would recommend spending a while on...a sipper, enjoy.
