Notes: Gentlemen (and gentlewomen), be prepared. This year’s Mr. Brown is… well… BROWN. An intense and full bodied stout, brewed with coffee and matured with cognac oak chips and cedar spirals for richness.

A very creamy coffee/chocolate stout, with a bit of oak barrel feel and a very pleasant sweetness.

Really dark brown color with mocha head. Aroma has fudge, chocolate, some dark fruits, cocoa shake and nuts. Taste starts with roasted malts and dark chocolate, continues with some booze soaked fruits and wood and finishes quite roasty and bitter. Quite full mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Really well made and tasty yet easy drinking for an imperial stout.

A: The beer is very dark brown in color. It poured with a finger high dark tan head that has very good retention properties and consistently left a short head covering the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of dark malts are present in the nose along with strong notes of licorice.
T: The taste has flavors of dark malts and coffee along with notes of cognac and hints of licorice.
M: It feels a bit more than medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This stout is especially flavorful, particularly in the taste with its notes of cognac from the oak chip maturing. It does a good job at masking most of the alcohol from the taste.

Serving type: can

Pours black with two fingers of dark caramel head that foams up rapidly. Head retention is okay. Aroma is coffee, featuring a kiss of charring and a touch of burnt. Coffee is followed by earthen, roasted, toasted, and nutted malts and a hint of caramel. Flavor profile is smooth and rich coffee, hitting a medium roast. Coffee is accompanied by chocolate and roasted, toasted, nutted, and earthen malts. Coffee is less bitter and more complete in the flavor profile versus the aroma. Mouth feel is medium-thick with a velvety, creaminess that is bordering on thick. Overall, a splendid coffee stout despite a light aroma.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 50cl can.

Pours dark as the night, with a head that's not far off, in color or thickness, from the brown bar near the top of the can. Smell is complex and really a treat in itself. Coffee, oak, chocolate, sweet, dark berries. Flavor is similar, but smoother and creamier than the nose, with no detectable booze. Goes down smooth, thanks to a well-balanced, medium mouthfeel, and a nice, clean finish. Really impressed by this stuff, and hoping my shop still has another can next time I'm there.

"Best by 1/11/19"; drank 7/2/18 @ the Yarchives.

Black appearance.

A violent pour yielded a HUGE dark tan head; a thick curtain of lace.

Medium roast coffee bean, fresh oak, cream, dark chocolate & mild peanut butter notes in the nose.

Creamy medium thick mouthfeel.

Medium roast coffee bean, peanut butter & mild dark chocolate flavors up front; cream notes on the finish. Almost no booze heat.

Rich yet drinkable; a nice take on the coffee stout. I'd have another...

Can. Almost black. Thick dense, tan head.
Rich malty aroma. Chocolate, coffee, wood and much more. Hops are present but fuse well with the malt.
The addition of vanilla, liquorice and toffee in the taste extends the experience. Demi-sec.
Smooth and soft.
Wonderful.

500 ml can into snifter, best before 1/11/2019. Pours opaque dark brown/black color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky tan head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big nutty dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, brown sugar, vanilla, cedar, toasted oak, raisin, fig, date, floral, citrus zest, and dark bread; with lighter notes of molasses, smoke, charcoal, herbal, pepper, and roast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt, coffee, cognac/oak/cedar, and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big nutty dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, brown sugar, vanilla, cedar, toasted oak, raisin, fig, date, floral, citrus zest, and dark bread; with lighter notes of molasses, smoke, charcoal, herbal, pepper, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy hop and roast/char bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of nutty coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, brown sugar, vanilla, cedar, toasted oak, raisin, fig, date, floral, citrus zest, dark bread, light smoke/char, herbal, pepper, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, coffee, cognac/oak/cedar, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with an awesome roast/hop bitter/sweet balance; and no acrid/astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from hop/char bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky, and fairly sticky/chalky/tannic mouthfeel that is great. Mildly increasing warmth of 10% after the finish. Overall this is fantastic imperial coffee stout! All around outstanding complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, coffee, cognac/oak/cedar, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth and dangerously easy to sip on for the big ABV. Very rich malt complexity, balanced fruity/nutty coffee, and great cognac/oak/cedar presence. A highly enjoyable offering as expected. Very well integrated on all flavors.

Look is completely black. Huge thick & frothy head, color is a deeper tan.
Lacing is very sticky and strong thru out. Never really settles.

Smells like a toned down imperial stout with some sweet chocolate candies. Some oak/woodiness pops up as it warms. Malty. Very subtle but aromatic. Really gotta get in there to smell anything.

Taste is pleasant. Not an over powering of tart dry bitterness but yet quite smooth. Alcohol pokes thru a bit adding some depth and flavor. Almost a bit of sweetness is added from the cognac oak chips. Earthy-ness and black roasted coffee on the end.

Feel is medium\full body.
No chalky dryness. Finishes wet and sweet.

Really great beer. Enjoyed thru & thru
