4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
English (sorry if there’s any mistake in the text):
Had in a bottle at home, bought at a local shop, Labirratorium (Madrid). Pours black with a brown head, which flies away quickly and only leves a small sticky head.
Aroma is pretty intense: mostly dark coffee, but with the sweetness of caramel and roasted malts.
Taste is mostly the same: the coffee is back again but maybe there’s a little bit of chocolate in this one.
Full-bodied withe medium carbonation.
This is a really nice beer, and if you also like coffee, you’re going to love this one.
Botella comprada en Labirratorium, tienda local de madrid.
El cuerpo es de color negro totalmente opaco, con espuma marrón claro que desaparece rápido, aunque deja una pequeña capa que permanece ahí el resto del tiempo.
Tiene aroma muy intenso a café, aunque muy bien acompañado de toques más dulces a caramelo y maltas tostadas.
El sabor es prácticamente igual, con el café dominando la escena aunque de nuevo con otras notas dulces.Tal vez tenga un ligero toque a chocolate también.
En general hay que decir que es una cerveza excelente, y al que además le guste el café definitivamente le encantará.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: As black as ink, small, stable and lacy tanned head, rich nose - as expected: coffee, roasted malt, caramel, leather and liquorice, some port-vinous traces underneath; solid bitter-sweet flavour, full bodied; drier roasty-bitter coffeeish finish, still a subtle sweetness detectable. Great stuff, as expected...

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer pours brownish black with a medium tan head that diminishes steadily. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted coffee and chocolate. Full-bodied with a strong roast coffee character plus notes of dark chocolate and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a lingering coffee aftertaste. Good beer for coffee lovers overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours clear very dark brown with a average lasting frothy tan head. Aroma is hard roasted malt, caramel, sweet earthy espresso, dark chocolate, red berries, hops, and pepper. Taste is heavy sweet and medium bitter. Body is medium, texture is sticky, carbonation is soft. Finish is both sweet, bitter and long lasting and then the taste of rich and earthy coffee and some alcoholic burn takes over.

2011 on Draft at WLV for Zwanze Day 12. Pours black with a dark brown head. Nose is nice. Earthy, coffee and chocolate. Light sweet malt. Roasted malt and faint vanilla, some alcohol. On tasting, the coffee is quite nice. Lends an earthy chocolate quality that balances the rich malt. Finishes mostly dry with warming. Creamy. Really nice stout.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Enjoyed on draft at WLV Liquors during Zwanze Day, 2012. Served in my Zwanze taster flute.
A: Pours a dark black color with a dark tan head forming on the pour. It recedes slowly leaving some sticky lace behind.
S: Earthy and green coffee beans, some roasted malts and a little sweetness as well. As expected.
T: Same earthy coffee beans, roasted malts, some sweetness and a little anise. Slightly astringent.
M: Medium to heavy bodied with a little thickness to it. Dry and mildly astringent. Medium carbonation.
O: This was alright. The coffee was earthy and dark as expected and at the forefront of the taste. Probably wouldn’t care to have again, but it was far from bad.
Serving type: on-tap
