4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2013 Bottle @ Milan-PSV warm up. Thanks to Hallinghansen. Pours black with a creamy beige head and lacings. Nose is simply just amazing. Freshest and nicest coffee profile and a bit of tobacco. Flavor has coffee, tobacco and chocolate. It is so smooth and silky that it’s impossible to describe. One of the best coffee beers ive had. This is a crazy moment. The sun is setting, looking out the window, waiting for a great soccer match on TV, listening to CV Jørgensen (I det muntre hjørne) and vaguely hearing my newly born son making noises in the next room. Without sounding too clichee-ish - life is good!

Very dark brown pour, nice brown head. The flavor is amazing. On the nose it smells of a huge coffee bomb. But the flavor bring forth a sweet maple syrup note, chocolate and the coffee. Really an awesome beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ Steve’s house, courtesy of arminjewell. A bit murky deep brown appearance with a dark brown head. Big bitter coffee, very earthy, dark chocolate, very roasty, a bit milky aroma. Lightly fruity, cherry, chocolate, roasty malty, coffee, slightly bitter, earthy flavor. OK but kind of disappointing.

750mL thanks to BSchnab! Clear, deep brown pour with lower foam. Super rich hazelnut nose, spicy coffee. Taste is lemon, thicker hazelnut coffee, some chocolate, Starbucks ground coffee. Not thin or acidic. Extremely rich coffee centric. Coffee drinkers rejoice. My wife gave it a 3.3

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, thanks Paul. Thick black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of big coffee, cereal, hints of fruit, slight chocolate, hints of earth, slight biscuit. Taste is a mix of dark chocolate, lots of coffee, hints of earth, fruit, hints of cereal and bready notes, finishing fairly bitter, fairly sweet. Pretty interesting, but a bit odd.

Bottle thanks to Luke, cheers! Pours a pure black color with a large off-white head. A light chocolate nose, vanilla, coffee. The flavor is cocoa, lactose, vanilla, big peppers which certainly comes from the coffee, some roasted coffee, roasted malts. Quite smooth, light and tasty.
