4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Outstanding! Great to have a coffee beer that is not a porter or stout. Dark Horse is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. Nice, deep, dark roasty nose. Light and bouncy on the palate with a black coffee impact (give me this on a Friday night after a long week and I can go for hours!).

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Studenterhuset, Århus. Pours dark brown with a creamy light tan head. Aroma of malt, coffee, caramel, bread, wood, but also a strong vegetables note that i offen get in coffee beers. Flavor is light sweet, malty, caramel, bread, nuts, nice strong coffee, dark bitter chocolate. Medium body, soft carbonation, some warming alcohol. For me taste is alot better than aroma here, no veggies. 251014

If you like coffee, this is the smell for you. Flavor wise, not so much. A little too sweet without the in tenseness if the coffee aroma. Beautiful to look at and pretty good to drink.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Aroma of bitter coffee malt. Hazy amber brown color, 5" bubbly ivory head that takes its sweet time dropping to 1/2", frothy waves of lace. Taste is sweet lactic malt with coffee and chocolate that glides through the palate to a bittersweet finish. The lingering "lees" turn sweeter as they fade. Really surprising in how balanced and drinkable it is.

330 ml bottle at home. Dark red-brown color with big light beige head. Aroma is coffee with a lot of spicy notes and musty. Taste is light malty sweet, a lot of coffee and some caramel. The finish is quite spicy, I feel a light burning on my tongue, slightly bitter and alcoholic. Light body, oily feel, a lot of carbonation.
