Well, that is interesting. The coffee taste is really present so it really tastes like a fizzy coffee with some beer aftertaste. Not bad, not something that I would search for but interesting.

Inoven (309) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2016
Flesje thuis gedronken (tht 3 juli 2016) bruin bier, tijdens het inschenken behoorlijk schuimend maar dit trekt snel weg. Aroma is alsof je een pak koffie open maakt. Smaak van koffie is overheersend. Zoete afdronk. Koffie smaak blijft even hangen. Toch een goede combinatie.

33cl bottle. Pours dark brown with a thick white head. Belgian yeast, chocolate and some coffee. Toffee sweetness. High carbonation. Toffee, caramel and chocolate in flavor. Somewhat complex brew, but the carbonation making it tough to drink.

BlazerT (500) - POLAND - MAR 27, 2016
Bottle. Teku. Deep brown/reddish with big, semi-densed, lighlty brown head. Perfect lacing and head retention. Strong malty backbone aroma, medium belgian yests, after few whiles in the glass you can feel nice coffee aromas. Slightly boozy character in the backgroung. Neither coffee acidicy nor bitterness. Great. In overall it’s more like the triple with coffee added than stout. Nice coffee flavours perfectly fits into this beer. Highly drinkable beer.
