JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 12, 2013
Draft at Sřernes Řlbar. Very dark brown with an orange hue and a low light brown head. Aroma of smooth milky sweet coffee-roast, Wiener Melange style. Rich body, smooth silky mouthfeel, sweet and creamy roast with a medium malty bitterness. Too much alcohol and too sweet to be a real delight.

Borresteijn (5318) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 3, 2013
75cl Bottle from De Bierkoning, thanks Marc! Black colour, brown head. Aroma of cold coffee, coffee residue, ground coffee, chocolate, quite sweet, but also lots of roast. Flavour is medium-sweet, hard roasted malts, hint of cocoa, from then on pure ground coffee beans and coffee residue with a little booze. Too much coffee for me. Medium to full-bodied.

StoutHead (848) - DENMARK - APR 2, 2013
Bottle. Pitch black with a tiny tan head and practically no carbonation. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Tastes of roasted malt, lots of chocolate, dark fruits and a bit of smoke. Very smooth and tasty with a long aftertaste of bitter chocolate and coffee. Body is medium to full (I expected more). Quite good - the lack of carbonation really makes the flavour stand out, and a good flavour is it too - but it’s not mindshatteringly fantastic.

WheatKing (1319) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 23, 2013
Pours black. Feels like a bullet to the nose, the body carries a lot of oomph here, more than the mustiness you often get from impies. Taste is smooth ash, very high quality tasting coffee, and a bit of berries. Very nice.

langeveld12 (292) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 22, 2013
Non carbonated version, so no head. Body is coffee black. Aroma contains roasted and burnt malts, dark chocolate, dark roasted mocca coffee, dough, leather, grape, raisin, a bit of white wine and tawny port, smoke, cola nad fruits I can't define. Flavor starts of light acidic, light sweet and light bitter, then goes to sweet and bitter and finishes in bitter and strong mocca coffee and alcohol. Body is medium, with syrupy texture. I like strong coffee and I like beer but this combination isn't working as I hoped. The beginning is good but less of the coffee would be better. It really kicks in at the end, together with the alcohol. It overpowers the subtle aroma's of the beginning. Too much like coffee, but that should be hot and not enough like beer. Still some points for the first part, though.

Thx! to Kraddel. 01/2012 Vintage – NON-CARBONATED Version. Blackish, dark brown, obviously no head. Smells of burned coffee grounds, very dark chocolate, strongly roasted malts, light ash, strongly burned,… Taste is that of quite bitter coffee grounds, reasonable roast, thick chocolate, mocha, light chocolate milk, some light sweetness coming through in the finish, almost wine-like alcohol, warming, thick mocha, near-hint licorice. Obviously flat. Label says for connoisseurs to regards to this version but I assume that they just had a failed batch and decided to sell it but who cares this is quite lovely.
