willisread (2162) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 29, 2015
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a deep brown with a small beige head that dissipates fairly quickly. Huge coffee nose with some vanilla, cinnamon and fennel seed present. Cola-like mouthfeel with some stickiness and medium body. Lots of dark roasted coffee on the palate with an underlying sweetness with some spice that comes up. Slightly warming finish, but not too sweet. Enjoyable.

caesar (6419) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 20, 2015
Bottle from former de Molen beershop, dated 08/05/15 BB 08/05/20, large sample. Dark color, very short frothy head. Aroma of dark chcolate, roasted coffee, dry biscuit, touch of mocha, bit ashes, but mainly dark chocolate with chocolatey and nutty coffee. Bit cookie sweetness in taste, bitter from chocolate and coffee. It has a bit of the rough edges de Molen shows a lot the last years, but itís pretty darn tasty thats what it is!
