4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours luscious coffee brown with a thick tan head. Roast quality coffee component of the aroma reaches out and touches you from half a meter away; as you close in, roast malt and semi-sweet chocolate hints make themselves known. Bold, smoky notes dominate the coffee and malt flavor, while earthy, chocolate and subtle nutty tones provide support. Texture is fairly firm but quite fizzy. Almost like a good stout mixed with an offering from Caribou Coffee. Them Italians know how to brew good beer!

Tap at Churchkey. Dark brown, thin tan head. Really soft coffee, light toast and chocolate, very balanced. Creamy body, very balanced, rich coffee emerging with warmth in the finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Not very intense. Bottle at Slow Beer. Aromas of nuts, caramel and coffee. Taste is sweet with light bitterness, and average length. Palate is oily, with a thin to medium body. Dark brown with a frothy head.

Aroma is coffee only. Faint otherwise. Dark black color. Small head. Lacing. More coffee in the taste. Some roasted barley taste.....really just a good stout. Impressed.

33cl bottle @ home. Dark brown color, medium but long lasting creamy brownish head. Aroma coffee, smoke, honey, licorice, dark chocolate, smoke again, roasty, well balanced and moderated. Taste medium to very bitter with a very light sweetness. Full body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, medium bitter finish. Fine dessert beer, quite easy to drink compared to other stouts.

Deep brown body and stable tan head. Instant coffee, mocha, bit toasty and developed yeast. Quite rich taste for the abv, with tasty roasted malts and sufficient bitterness. Well made, balanced even yet full of flavour. Yum, I like it a lot. (Fancy bottle from SpeciaalBierPakket)

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.
