Petroleum beer. Almost black, lack of head.
Coffee and chocolate aromas hide other notes (exception: black olives and a bit of fruits). Too much coffee for me.
In mouth it is bitter. low carbonation and medium body. Dry and long ending.
Is it coffee or beer?

568ml bottle shared @Bir&Fud Bottega (Rome). Pours deep black with large creamy cappuccino foam. Aroma is roasted malts, cappuccino, chocolate and coffee, well mixed together. Flavour is medium to light sweet, cappuccino, milk, then coffee leading to a bitter end. Medium body, light carbonation. This is a very good stuff!

Pours almost black with predominant coffee aroma. Tobacco and chocolate too but the coffee dominates and I agree with the reviewer that says there’s a disappointing burnt coffee flavour that kicks in.

Large bottle from Favourite Beers Cheltenham. Dark almost black colour with a greyish brown head. Aroma had lots of coffee, The taste had the twiggy burnt notes I associate with really badly made coffee. Hard to drink and couldn’t have finished a whole bottle.

Bottle. Black with a small head. Chocolate and to a lesser degree coffee are the prominent flavours. Smooth and easy to drink. With this strength I don’t think it would be a breakfast drink. Another good one from this brewery.
