3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Drunk in 10 mins before going to meet an old friend. Helped me talk more shite than usual. Then I had black coffee that tasted like coffee, rather than beer pretending to taste like coffee that does a little but not as much as some that don’t pretend to taste like coffee. Not bad, little fuller would be god. Not god. Never god. Good. Definitely getting stingier.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle, at home. Poured into an english pint glass. ABV 4,2%
Very dark brown, almost totally black. One finger of head on top of it, dark beige in colour, soapy, with good retention.
Very strong aroma of coffee, along with dark chocolate and some little roasted malts on the background. The coffee aroma overpowers everything else.
NIce mild bitterness on the taste, here are the roasted malts more intense, followed by the coffee and the chocolate comes mostly on the aftertaste. Fantastic taste.
Smooth and creamy on the body, light carbonation. Nice dryness on the palate

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2013 Black with a slight red tint and a thin, soapy, lacy, lasting, beige head. Smells of strong malt, coffee, strong roast, and caramel and chocolate.
