3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark, almost black colored beer with a very small head and low carbonation. Smells a bit strange first. It takes some time before I recognize the mocca in the aroma. Taste: mocca, coffee, liquor, pure chocolate, wood and alcohol warming coming up at the end. Very good

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home - 19/11/12 thanks to Dennis.
Pours dark cola brown in colour with a tan head that soon clears to a tiny film and nothing on the edges. Prickly looking bubbles dance atop the glass.
Big coffee nose, minerals, slightly musty/earthy, roast malts but in the background, it’s really all about the coffee.
Taste follows nose, coffee slightly more tempered, chocolate, a little smoke, metallic notes, you pick up a little booze as you swallow but well disguised for 11.6%.
Medium bodied - if anything ptretty thin for 11.6%, soft carbonation, roasty coffee infused finish.
Overall - a let down, balance not quite right - a little musty and way too thin.

Bottle from Vika, enjoyed at home, september 21st 2012. Very dark brown colored body, foamy beige head. Aroma of coffee, rubber, a bit smoke. Taste follows with a roasty and sweet malt base, chocolate, ashes, and a good bitterness. The smoke stays through the aftertaste, together with coffee and yeast notes. A very nice beer.
