Bottled@Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Deep reddish brown colour with a mediumsized beige head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is mild roasted malts, coffee, some slight nutty notes as well as chocolate and mild ripe fruits. Flavour is chocolate, roasted malts, some coffee and toffee with quite a big bitterness kicking in in the finish.

Bottled, thanks hopsrus!!
Just what I needed to wake me up after a long session with incredible beers. Very black. And... coffee. Loads of coffee. The aroma is all about coffee. The mouthfeel sweet and creamy and nicely rounded, and the tarry, bitter finish is like eating from the bottom of a cup of turkish coffee. I wouldn't say balanced, but I sure like it.

22nd July 2008. This is not a subtle coffee beer but it is a good one. The sumatran coffee is slightly sweet but retains it’s character. There is also some repressed fruit in the finish. Not too bitter.

Black color; medium sized head, beige. The aroma is actually suspiciously dusty; there is roasted malt too, coffee grounds, very light phenol, not very nice. The flavor is much better; smooth mouthfeel, roasted malt in front, light coffee, actually with some residual sweetness; later, there is some light liquorice and phenol. Correct bitterness; the final is a bit drier. Very good.
