3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with a large lasting head.
Nose shows complex heavy roast and roasted coffee. Quite enticing.
Very similar flavours. Quite roasty but with little roasty biterness. Some sweet malt and a fair whack of coffee.
A bit too much carbonation.
Gets a bit too sweet later.

Opaque black beer, good tan head. Minerally coffee nose. Semi dry palate with mild carbonation. Minerally coffee, pretty strong black coffee style. Not bitter though. Fresh minerally finish and a mild coffee aftertaste. All right.

Grande Coffee Stout. Aroma di malto tostato e caffè. Nera con schiuma marrone. Al palato malti tosti e caffè. Emerge una nota di caramello e poi il caffè. Anche un pò di cioccolata fondente e il caffè. Ho detto il caffè? Io amo il caffè. Scherzi a parte ottima stout.

33 cl bottle @ Timo A, BBE 01.12.2012
Flavour is slightly sour with coffee, some oaty notes and dark chocolate. Flavour has coffee, some jalopeno‐like vegetables typical to coffee beers, mocha and dark chocolate. Palate is too foamy. I like the coffee notes here.
