Kaffeeschwarzes Bier mit mächtiger Schaumkrone, welche leicht bräunlich ist. Wunderbares Kaffeearoma, dazu leicht röstig. Startet süßmalzig, der Kaffee nimmt im Geschmack die Oberhand und klingt trocken-röstmalzig aus. Für Kaffeetanten wie mich DAS Bier schlechthin, auch wenn ich die Sorte Kopi Luwak für überschätzt halte.

Black body with a dark tan tan head. Aroma of Oak, roast, coffee, and more oak. Taste of Coffee, bitter chocolate, oak, sherry, liquorish, alcohol, and a bit of tartness. Very rich and complex, very full body. Roasty palate.

A real gusher, creating a light brown head that didn’t settle down for quite some time. The head did enhance the lovely, powerful coffee aroma. When I finally got to sip some beer it was a smooth unique, well-balanced beer, a frothier, more nuanced Founder’s Breakfast Stout. Love it.

reebtogi (5522) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 13, 2013
330ml bottle pours black in color with a finger of light brown head that reveals very little lacing as it settles. Aroma is dominated by coffee with some notes of chocolate and some spice. Taste is a strong coffee bitterness with some potent spice and a subdued chocolate malty sweetness. Medium bodied with mild carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden. Another one of those high quality brews that doesn’t sit good with me as I am not a coffee lover.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2013
11.2 oz bottle, 18/04/12. Quite the foamer; big tan head on dark brown. Nose is vinous coffee, black olive, prune and wet wood. Medium body with fluffy carb. Taste is chalky coffee, plum and roasty hints with a dry, bittersweet chocolate finish. A fruity coffee beverage that also happens to be a stout. Sneaks up on you.

mixmasterob (1044) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Black pour with a big fizzy brown head. Struck around due to its plus carbonation. Aroma was subtle with notes of cocoa, light roast, just a slight hint of spent coffee grounds. Flavors were slightly sweet with notes of cocoa, vanilla, roasted malt and bitter coffee. Overall very drab and unappealing. The plus carbonation kinda ruined it for me. Weak.

pushkinwow (2514) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2013
Bottle from Angst in Secret Santa 2012, bottled 2011. Ruby tinged black with a hint of brown head that remains for a bit before gradually disappearing to nothing. Mild smoke with a nice coffee, bit of anise, some roasted malts, bittersweet chocolate. Mild carbonation, an oddly full yet somewhat thin body if that makes with some vinous and alcohol notes, becomes very dry and slightly bitter.

#70 De Molen beer // Thx. to Martinus for sharing this one // 33 cl. bottle sampled @ Tim’s De Molen & assorted beers tasting // Bottled on 05/09/2011. Looks black with a creamy mocha head. Smell is very bitter roasted coffee, grounded bitter coffee, choc & chocolate, light caramel & touch liquorice. Taste is bitter grounded coffee, coffee grounds mixed with creamy, milky & sweeter coffee, lightly herbal with a liquorice touch, light berries & creamy, dark malts, cocao & light ash / burned. I am digging this. My memory is a bit vague of the old version, I think this one is the better one & more bitter than the first one but age is of course a factor, the first one was older than this one when I tried if I am not mistaken.

Martinus (4365) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2013
Black colour, tan head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts, red fruits, caramel, light liquorice and chocolate. Coffee bitter flavour, caramel, light sweet, chocolate and roasted malts. Quite balanced. Finish coffee and cocoa.
Nice, though it doesn’t seem very different from the older version.
(From 33cL bottle shared at the DMT @ Tim’s living, Gent. Bottling date 5 Sept 2011)
