Five different dark grains, molasses and freshly roasted African coffee beans went into this rich and decadent sweet-stout. This beer is unfiltered and matured in the bottle and will continue to improve for the next 2-3 years. After fermentation a portion of the beer was matured on medium-toast french oak providing subtle hints of vanilla and coconut.
Pour carefully to avoid disturbing the sediment.

Koelschtrinker (17307) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 15, 2012
Süßer vanilleartiger Malzantrunk. Sofort wird das Bier trockener, die malzigen Noten bleiben konstant und werden leicht röstig. Die Malzigkeit bleibt auf diesem Level und legt erst zum Ende etwas zu, hier passenderweise weniger süß. Weiche Kaffeenoten im Abgang. Gelungen! 8/12/11/12/8/12

harrisoni (17282) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2011
Bottle thanks to Ken. Black beer with tan ring of bubbles. Roasted malt aroma. Faint touch of coffee but mostly harsh molasses that dont always work. Yes tar and molasses. Not my thing

yngwie (16504) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2011
Bottle, at Ølfestival 2011. It pours an almost black body and a dense, finger-thick dark beige head. Roasted and slightly burnt maltyness on the nose. Licorice and some prunes too. Salty licorice, roasted malts and sweetness on the palate, some roasted bitterness and a fine dose of hoppy bitterness both initially and in the end. Full-bodied and smooth. Overall, a bit on the sweet side, but a fine beer anyway. 110527

TBone (16159) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 10, 2011
Bottled 340ml (Pikkulintu, BB 11/2013)
Dark brown, almost opaque color, small brownish head. Coffeish, slightly milky aroma. Medium-bodied. Very coffeish, soft palate, milky sweetness. Nicely balanced dessert stout. After medicore Vlakvark, it was great to have a world class milk stout from Bierwerk.

Bottle, KØ11. Bready aroma, even a bit oxidized. Black colour, small stable dark brown head. The flavour is rather sweet, quite bready. Has a little hvidtøl to it, but is also a bit alcoholic.
