Pours a pure black. Medium tan head with good retention. Strong aroma of coffee, light smoke and earthiness. Flavor is strong black coffee, leather and hint of vanilla/toffee sweetness. Slightly slick mouthfeel. The strength of the coffee flavor could be a turnoff if you’re not into coffee. But if that’s your thing, it’s excellent.

after years of enjoying it, I thought is was time to finally revue it! As always, a lovely roast coffee nose with a touch of vanilla. The coffee profile is smoother in the taste profile, augmented by a creamy smoothness, solid malt background, a hint of bubble gum, some hops and dark berries. The blending is impeccable, the body rich and smooth, and the aftertaste true to the initial taste profile. Understated professional brewing.

Bottle, from end of 2007, 7 years old. Pours in deep black body with low persistent brown head. Aroma is just amazing right away, full of caramel, toffee, coffee, very smooth and easy. Taste has smooth dark chocolate caramel sweetness with well balanced coffee bitterness, not astringent at all. Light woody notes, coffee sweetness persists in the after taste. Amazing balance. Texture is soft, smooth, light oily, body is full, soft medium carbonation.

2 years in the cellar. Flavour really softens but good either way. One of the best in the style.
