Bottle. [thanks Feldthaus]
Bought @ LIVA, Kolding.
Pours completely black with a nice, small, staying, beige-brown head. Aroma has lots of coffee, light roasted malts. Dry and fairly light palate, prickly carbonation and some creaminess. Flavour has lots of coffee, dryness, chocolate, mild roasted, nuts. But mostly elegant coffee. Top balance.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from GBBF drunk at home on a day of coffee stouts. Black beer with thin lasting tan head. Clear coffee aroma. Quite full in the mouth. Solid coffee flavour throughout that is balanced. Not too powdery or dry. But full enough not to make it too watery. Coffee is like a coffee liquer, coffee flaoured dark choc truffle. Touch of tingle on the tongue on the finish. Very drinkable and good balance like I said.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Black pour with a rocky, almost swiss cheese-like foamy brown head. Strong coffee and roasted malt in the nose along with dark chocolate and burnt chocolate cake. Taste is big coffee, chocolate covered dark, oily coffee beans, chocolate cake, roasted malt and faint milk notes. Body is medium but the carbonation is bubbly and a bit thin. Ends with more coffee notes, chocolate covered coffee beans, more cake notes, roasted malt and light milky flavors. Lacking a bit body-wise but still tasty!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells like the italian espresso I used to get in Naples. Tastes like iced coffee. Light on the palate. Overall a pretty good beer.

Black color; creamy head. The aroma of coffee is at the same time evident and delicate, leaning on the creamy and dusty side; but also some cheese. Lean body, dry coffee flavor, a bit dusty; correct bitterness. For a coffee and Stout lover (not me), very good.
2010-06-05, RBESG 2010, draught at Brasserie 4:20, Rome, 6-4-6-3-12=31
Black color; creamy head. Aroma of boiled (saucepan-brewed) coffee. Dry mouthfeel, slim body, roasted malt and coffee flavor; the final is quite dry, with roasted malts. This is simply not my kind of beer; still, it’s a correct brew.
