A really nice dark beer with actual coffee in it. Tastes really great, but a lot of foam.

skortila (4631) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - NOV 17, 2014
Bottled. Full 33cl sample. The aroma has cherries, red fruit, coffee, slight toast. Bit hazy, dark brown coloured beer with a thin, off-white head. The taste is sweet, has some coffee and dark fruits all the way. Medium bodied. Light bitterness in the finish. Okay.

Bosskie (459) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2014
Pitch black with brown tones. Nice bubbles, frothy head. Smell is milky chocolate. Leather, drop, sourwood. Subtle hints of apple. Taste is watery bitter. Oily and fizzy with delicious fullness. Finish is bitter fruitiness, lightly hoppy.

Aethien (32) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 31, 2014
Dark brown with a small head. Coffee grounds, roasted malts and a little alcohol in the nose. Coffee, some vanilla and lots of malt but kind of watery in flavour for a 7.7%ABV stout with coffee. Kinda thin and oily mouthfeel. Overall it’s ok, not great but not bad. Kinda stupid to put "Belgian Tradition" on the label of a stout with coffee and an English name though.

fkoolen (365) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2014
Nice brown colour, beige head. Big coffee in the nose and taste, some chocolate, gingerbread, sweet malts. Quite one dimensional. Medium carbonation, good body, soft mouthfeel.

Coffee beer !!! Got a nice brown dark colour with nice aroma and taste of coffee, chocolate and maybe a little bit of nuts. Palate not very noticable, her only weakness

RW80 (810) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2014
33cl bottle Appearance: Clear dark brown with big tanned head. Aroma: caramelised malts. milk chocolate and coffee. Taste: Sweet caramelised malts, milk chocolate, with a finish with coffee, sourness little vegetable, nuts and a little bitterness, alcohol present slightly in the finish. medium body,average carbonation. Too much caramelised malts and too little bitterness, for me this a Cofee infused double and not a stout.
