3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black with a disappearing light brown head. Coffee (cold, day old coffee), ashes, licorice, charcoal in the nose, the coffee so dominating that I don’t sense beer. Intense flavour mixing coffee, chocolate, roast malt, and a touch of hop bitterness on a sweet background. A pleasant surprise after the aroma. But as always with flavoured and spiced beer, I prefer the flavouring subdued and the beer in the foreground.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. [thank you, Boutip!]
Poured in my Belle-Vue Kriek Snifter. Absolutely pitch black with a nice, medium cappucino-beige head. Good lacing. Aroma is deeply roasted coffee and a sweetish background of chocolate. Good and very dry mouthfeel - perhaps a little thin when you think of the 9,5 %. Flavour is very much dominated by coffee, some slight coffee. Also there are tar-like notes and light fruity hoppiness. Actually a very drinkable beer - and I sure like coffee in my beers :o) Finish is a bit chewy with the chocolate coming through a bit more. But this is first of all, a coffee-lovers dream.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki)
Jet black, large tan head, settles to a small ring. Coffee and sweet spicy peppers aroma. Taste matches the aroma - coffee and even more spicy peppers. Slightly fizzy on the tongue, otherwise quite sticky in the mouth. Swirling it softens it nicely. Covers the alcohol perfectly. Great sipper, but so tasty you want to glug it. The spicy sweet peppers wow me all the way to the bottom. And the coffee’s not caricatured, all very well balanced.
