Bottle at the RBESG09, Grand tasting, sheffield. Alround rating: Quite a bit of coffee and bitter black chocolate, theres a small lychee character in there too, which makes it quite interesting.

Black colored brew, brown head. Nice. Coffee in the aroma, huge and rich. Flavor is full of coffee too, rich, very rich. Overall very nice.

A Sim rate: Keg at Ealing Beer Festival.
Pitch black with no head. Aroma is so SO coffee... as you’d expect. It’s espresso with extra beans thrown in. The flavour is slightly too bitter with a hit that knocks your socks off. It’s like the espresso that has been sitting in the pot for hours until dad decides to finish it off. Overall, such an amazing aroma, I could sniff that all day. Just wish the flavour was as smooth.

Caught it at the brewery De Molen in Bodegraven, the Netherlands. A coffee dark beer with a nice beige head. High CO2 pressure, according to the type of beer. Aroma, like a smooth espresso or cafe as the romans say. A hint of liquorice and higher alcohols.
The flavour confirms the aroma, and the caramel flavour is added. I expected the hop bitters but this beer ends, where this review started, with coffee.

From keg at Ealing BF 2009. Black no head. Extreme coffee aroma. One of the smoothest things I’ve had. Pure choc and espresso. Stunning finish of freshly gorund coffee. Sublime. One of the best coffee impy stouts I’ve had. It’s good, really good, so drinkable and adorable.

Tap at Copenhagen Beer Festival 2009. Black color, moderate beige head. Aroma is lots of mocca and coffee. Flavor is very smooth with coffee, mocca, roasted malt and balanced hops in the background. I want more of this!

On tap at In de wildeman. Almost black with a creamy beige head. Solid mocca, coffee and chocolate aroma. Flavours emphasize mocca galore, nothing but chocolate and high grade coffee. Uncompromising as always from De Molen.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled at PBF. Black, beige head. Lots of chocolate and coffee. Malt sweetness covers the alcohol almost completely. Full bodied with seemless rounded mouthfeel. Mildly warming with some syrup creeping through the massive coffee flavour. Really good, though I prefer my coffee without sugar.
