3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle (ALEhouse, Riga)
Alas, served pretty much at room temperature. Smells of runner beans. Beans which have burnt to the side of the pan, which is similar in smell to burnt cabbage. Taste is less beany, but still more bean than coffee. Smooth palate, nice carbonation. Body is at first milky, but later creamy, and even later buttery. Nice thick heavy branny husky grains. Hops provide a nice bitterness that tingles the tongue. Anna liked it more, as she’s not anti-coffee like me. If it had been colder, I may have been less perturbed by the beaniness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled from 50cl bottle thanks to Joes. Very dark brown to dark red color with a deep dark red color, medium sized beige head that diminishes fairly quickly. Smell malts, dark malts some roastyness and a lot of coffee. Taste malts, a tremendous amount coffee and roastyness, slightly cocoa, some earth and bitter. A bit too much coffee for me though it has quite a nice balance. Medium body and carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500mL bottle, pours a deep dark amber brown with a small beige head. Aroma of hazelnut coffee and toasted nuts - not overly pungent, especially considering the flavour. Flavour is very rich, surprisingly so, with lots of coffee, toasted hazelnuts, dark roasted malt, and rich caramel malt sweetness. Surprisingly full-bodied, with dominating flavours of caramel and hazelnut coffee. Finishes sweet and nutty. Excellent stuff.

Pours deep brown with a small, creamy, off-white head. Fine duration. Aroma has lots of fresh ground coffee, caramel, soft chocolate. Low carbonation, fantastic creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of elegant dry coffee, roasted malts, light herbal, some citrussy hoppiness. Very bitter finish with some astringency from the coffee. Very elegant beer.
