4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle (trade with the great Koelschtrinker). A gusher - beware! Espresso, balsamic vinegar, and sweet dark chocolate aroma. Cloudy dark brown color with explosive head initially but fades very quickly. Sweet mocha flavor up front followed by bitter/astringent coffee bean/grassy hops finish. Cannot detect any weasel poop in this at all. Despite the gimmick of this beer, it is very nice.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Basically black with an absolutely ridiculously big tanned head. I opted for my biggest snifter for this one, and it got filled with airy foam after just a minimal pour. The damn thing has nerve to dissipate at eonic time frame as well, so it takes a while for it to settle.
The aroma has lots of powdered coffee notes and espresso notes to it. Some roasted malts, chocolate, esters and chemicals (watercolor paint) as well.
The taste is quite intense and filled with powdered coffee aromas and bitter espresso flavors. Some sweetness and notes of caramel, roasted malts and a hint of spicy hops. The coffee and roasted malts get slightly acidic and tannic sometimes. The finish has a pleasant coffee bitterness to it and notes of chocolate, coffee and a hint of chemicals.
The body is fairly light for the style and due to the excessive carbonation it’s really easy on the palate. Drinkability is therefore dangerously high, and there’s no sign of the ABV.
This is good stuff. The intense coffee character really puts the coffee junkie in me at rest. I love how De Molen’s light stout character goes with the coffee aromas.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Basically black a huge lively head. Lots of coffe in the nose, some chocolate and other dark malt components but they are almost drowning in the coffe. Intense sharp coffe flavour and harsh almost acidic malt. Ends on a dry roasted note with lingering coffe. Rather light bodied and very easy to drink with very well hidden alcohol. If youre a coffe addict this is your cup of beer.
