3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2014 500ml bottle at home. Pours reddish tinged dark brown, short-lived beige head. Aromas are like a box of quality street, or perhaps a jar of nutella. Taste is like Japanese pocky (poky?) sticks. Too sweet for me.

Bottle (in Sept 2012) - Dark Brown in colour; Ruby Red against light. Aromas of coffee, milk chocolate and vanilla. Very malty; lots of coffee and milk chocolate, vanilla, toffee, roasted malts. Fruity; some fruitiness; chocolate raisins. Hoppy; slight spicy peppery hops. Sweet coffee and chocolate throughout leading to a dry slightly bitter finish. Unusual beer, but quite well executed. Very drinkable.

Almost clear, deep red - amber beer. Tidy pale tan head. Palate is light and smooth and dry. Somewhat artificial tasting chocolate, like chocolate powder. Light fruity tang with a touch of red berries. Light dry finish. Inoffensive.

If hot chocolate, was re-incarnated as a beer, this would be it! Tastes awesome. With a lovely chocolatey aroma.

Sample at Kurtkeller 005: Coffee-tastic 01 on 02/08/2014. Dark brown color with a medium thin tan head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Chocolate and coffee in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of toasted malt and mild coffee. The finish is semi-sweet with a short chocolate malt aftertaste. Average overall.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at home. Dark with plentiful carbonation but not a lot of head. No lacing. Smells of coffee boiled sweets. Pleasant but un-beerlike. I do not like the taste. When I lived in Miami there was a short-lived local soft drink called ’Cafe Cola’. This is very similar. Like dumping a supermarket iced cappuccino into a dark beer. And I don’t get much of the chocolate.
