(Can, 0.355 l, at laiti’s, 20150613, thanks) The beer poured golden and hazy. Its head was small and white. Aroma had coffee with cream. Palate was medium bodied and warming with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, sweetness, coffee, fruitiness and bitterness. Aftertaste was boozy, sweet and bitter. A rather weird brew with strange aroma. A gimmick beer.

BIG THANKS to Maxbier for sharing this one! Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is roasted coffee and vanilla. Flavor is sweet, creamy vanilla, caramel, coffee flavor. Roasted coffee bitterness in finish. A real treat.

355ml can - thanks VastActiv!
Potato starch aroma right off the bat, then orange, and then .. wait for it ... beans! Tastes very sweet. Coffee with milk and way too much sugar. Alcohol was I guess well hidden. The aroma was by the books a complete horror, but there was something so weird about it I almost enjoyed it. Maybe the train-wreck aspect amused me.

tom10101 (3775) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 23, 2015
Can (12 oz).

Appearance: Clear golden-orange with a small white head, low retentation and no lacing.

Aroma: Coffee, mild fruitiness, sweetness and some alcohol but still not too boozy considering the abv.

Taste: Rather sweet and boozy, but still not that much considering the abv. Coffee, mild fruitiness, vanilla, a bit of chocolate and light bitterness.

Palate: Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Cold coffee finish. Warming. A bit of an herbal aftertaste.

Overall: This is a boring high abv base beer with coffee... but at least it’s not too cloying for what it is. This is not bad, it’s just boring.

Marduk (3830) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 18, 2015
355ml can @Laiti’s, thanks. Clear amber color. Small size, white head. Beans, fruity, coffee and alcohol in aroma. Coffee, sweet, fruity, flourish and starchy in taste. Coffee in aftertaste. Way too sweet, but covers alcohol well. One of the weirdest beer I’ve ever drunk. Made me go wow and wtf at the same time in same word. So it was more like wowtf!

35,5 cl can @ home
Aroma is odd and a bit musty with apricot, some sweet chocolate biscuits and truffles. Perhaps some coffee too? Flavour has cold coffee, truffles, chocolate. Like a cafe latte with too much sugar. The appearance and the taste are kind of confusing here – looks like a pale ale but tastes like a sweet (imperial) brown ale. Enjoyable, but drinking the whole can would take time – drinkability is not that great.

tiong (4644) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 13, 2015
355ml can

Pours orange with a small head. Aroma of hops, caramely malts, hints of milk coffee, creamy notes and biscuits. Taste is sweet, hoppy and malty with loads of caramel, toffee, hints of syrup, and creamy milky notes. Finish is crisp, hoppy and sweet with hints of roastiness, caramel, creamy milk coffee notes. A bit strange. Alcohol is extremely well hidden.

Can 0.355l at Laiti’s, Helsinki. Thanks to vtafro! Colour is cloudy orange with very small white head. Aromas and flavours: Coffee, creamy milk, sweetness, candies, hints of alcohol and malts. Very strange.

Was super excite to score one can if this (store owner said "you did not get this here!") Golden color with sweet coffee lactose aroma. Flavors of sweet coffee, dark cocoa bite. Very unique brew. Enjoyable and worth the hunt.

Golden-orange body, medium sized off-white head, spotty lacing. Creamy coffee, light bread, a dash of earth, and a gentle vanilla-like sweetness. Medium bodied, silky smooth carbonation, no sign whatsoever of the 12% ABV. Well done.
