3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, 9.5%. Mild coffee aroma, like ground coffee beans after water has run through it. Cloudy very dark brown colour. Small stable brown head. The flavour is nicely sweet, there is some coffee, first in the flavour, later in the aftertaste. First it is a little like coffee with cocoa and perhaps cream, later it tastes like fresh-ground coffee.

4th January 2010
Opaque black beer with a mega frothy light brown head. Light frothy palate turning softer. Minerally dark malt that segues seamlessly into some smooth coffee that is really nicely judged. Itís unapologetic but not too heavy or espresso harsh. Finishes softish and semi dry and with a little bitterness creeping in. A trace of bubblegum sweetness is well buried in the mid. Decent and tasty.

Ickle bottle given to me by Menno. Thanks so much. Drunk during Hughie/IrishBoy/Odeed night of being 60. Cheers guys. Canít think of a better beer to rate on this evening. Black as night with touch of dark brown round the edges and huge tan head I needed to decant to get rid of the excess carbonation. Well, that smells of coffee. Big coffee, huge coffee, huge espresso with a touch of rich Belgian chocolate. Can I have this everyday for the rest of my life please? Simply gorgeous coffee, huge and just hits you through the eyes. Smooth in mouth and very smooth on the finish, not harsh in any way. No powder either. Just like a frap-espresso. Damn, the coffee on that is good. Best coffee beer ever? Damn close. Thanks Menno.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Kō-10. A dark brown beer, unclear, and topped by a beige head. The aroma has a lovely roasted, mocha and black coffee smell, but not much else. Thatís of course ok with a beer like this. Itís roasted in the flavor, with mocha and a coffee-like bitterness. Full-bodied and dry. I expect a beer with a name like this to be quite coffee focused, but I think thereís not enough of other aromas and flavors, it gets too one dimensional. But itís a fine beer anyway. 100508

Bottled 05/2009 @Beer Hunters
Bottle almost exploided when bartender opened it! Dark brown color, huge beige head. Aroma has strong cold coffee, vegetables and coffee beans. Lots of carbonation, almost disturbing amount in the mouthfeel. Flavor is quite par with nose: coffee beans, dark malts, vegetables, roasted notes. Finish has some hayish cat piss -hoppy notes and aftertaste touch of alcohol. Strange.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ 1st BBF, De Molen.
Pours utterly black with a very nice, staying, creamy beige head. Brilliant looks. Aroma has a super amazing coffee note, some blackberries (the others said black currants... I disagree). Cold coffee character mixed with light roasted notes and dark chocolate. Soft carbonation, lovely dry mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of coffee, yet still not too much. Roasted, chocolate, grainy. Super-long coffee finish with no lingering bitterness from coffee, just a hint of flowery hops. Impressive.
