sarauckelman (215) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2014
Rich, deep black color. Oily head. Aroma of licorice, with hints of tar and cherry cough syrup. Taste is, not surprisingly, very strong in both malt and the bitterness of coffee. Despite this, the palate is somewhat more syrupy than expected -- or desired. A fantastic beer nonetheless, even if not quite to my taste.

stravale (2271) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - FEB 13, 2014
Bottle from Ales By Mail [130214]
Pitch, black, thin rim, no lacing. Aroma of espresso roast coffee, slight tart fruits, lots of coffee, not much else. Taste of rich smooth coffee roast, big fruity coffee, dark fruit malts, chocolate, mellow roasted malts, dab of red wine, alcohol well hidden, not all that complex but very good flavour. Palate has a soft carb, medium body, sweet dark fruity malts with soft bitter coffee roast, very little alcohol. Finish as main flavour. Aroma less interesting than the flavour (mainly just roast coffee), body slightly thin but overall some nice fruity coffee in there.

Hansen (6878) - Assentoft, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2014
Dark brown, and almost clear. Has an off-white head, medium duration. Sweet, roasted aroma, a bit one-dimentional. Flavor is nice, but mainly sweet and roasted. Syrupy texture.

Kosmokrator (517) - ITALY - FEB 3, 2014
Intenso color marrone scuro con un cappello mediamente persistente di schiuma marroncino chiaro. Al naso offre forti sentori di caffè espresso su un timido velo di toffee e malto caramellato; anche al palato domina il caffè, accompagnato da note di cacao amaro, pasta frolla, frutta sciroppata e un retrogusto più asciutto e debolmente luppolato. Corpo medio, effervescenza gentile, oleosa e un po’ appiccicosa sul finale, abv ben celato. Praticamente una spremuta di caffè.

NeuroPliny (162) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 1, 2014
Tasted back to back with the Kopi Loewak. Same colour but way less head. Nose is powerful expresso with hints of dried fruit and spice. Flavour has raisin and dark malts up front but leaves you chewing on a coffee bean. I prefer the Kopi Loewak. It is more complex.

Grzesiek79 (3306) - Radom, POLAND - JAN 30, 2014
Bardzo cudownie dobre piwo. Czarne smoliste i nieprzezroczyste. Troche za slodki posmak na poczatku ale swietnie przechodzi w gozko palony i kawowy finisz, ktory jest niesamowicie dlugi. Utrzymuje sie wytrawnosc bardzo dlugo. Niesamowite razaenia. Piwo sprawia wrazenie ciezkiego i takowe jst, spora dawka alkoholu i zwlaszcza kawy Mocca stawia na nogi. Minusik maly za niewielka piane. Gozka czekolada i piernikowe rumowe posmaki takze obecne. Spora butelka ale jak ze wspaniala uczta na poczestunek do domowych wypieczonych ciasteczek. Polecam zamiast popoludniowej kawy.

rodenbach99 (3264) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 19, 2014
Bouteille de 750ml avec un bouchon de liège embouteillée au mois de décembre 2012. Bue au Saint-Bock avec SlovakSniper. Un liquide brun foncée presque noire avec de peu à pas de mousse. Pas de gusher ici. Un nez puissant de chocolat et de café, une sorte de Quick ou de bonbon au moka (chocolat-café). La bouche est ronde sans être grasse avec des superbes saveurs de chocolat, de grains rôtis et de grain de café. L’alcool est discret. Bien aimé cette offre.

SlovakSniper (3369) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 18, 2014
Un liquide embouteillé en décembre 2012. Au versement, peu de mousse sur ce liquide vraiment foncé. Au nez, des arômes succulents de chocolat, de praline, de café moka avec du caramel, de la vanille et des fèves de café fraîchement torréfiées. Au goût, des saveurs rôties avec une très fine fumée, du caramel et un riche filet de café aromatisé. Un alcool complètement caché tant au nez qu’en bouche. Au palais, un liquide huileux dans un corps soyeux qui souffre un peu d’un manque de vivacité. En finale, des notes rôties et chocolatées dans une amertume performante de café et de grains presque brûlés. Un bon impérial très parfumée et très savoureux. Dommage, par contre, pour son manque de bulles.

Garrold (1715) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2014
Bottle from Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Nearly black. Headless. Vine fruits. Some coffee. Some oak ash. Taste is dried fruit sweet. Lots of tartness. Thick, slick, diesel palate. Dry, bitter finish. All of which should make a good beer, but for me it’s a bit less than the sum of its parts.
