Bottle. A dense, finger-thick beige head of moderate size sits on top of a clear, dark brown body. The aroma is dominated by coffee, the butter-chocolate cream blending in. Roasted. Itís pleasantly carbonated, medium bodied and quite dry, with flavors of coffee and butter-chocolate cream. Caramel and croqant. Lasting finish with coffee dominating. Well, itís sort of interesting, one might need some food to go with this, but I canít imagine myself drinking a bottle by myself. 121124

This is starting to get a little better, however, it is still an average beer. Needs more body and substance.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sample at SBWF 2012. Smell of coffee, cream and sugar. Sweet taste with vanilla, coffee and chocolate. Like an iced coffee with low bitterness.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
330 ml bottle at the airport in Instanbul, Turkey. Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is coffee, toffee, more coffee and malt. Taste is sweet toffee with lest coffee at first then comming out in the end. Tasted more like an iced coffee than a beer. Palate is smooth. As long as you donít think of it as a beer it tastes pretty good.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle as pictured, clear bottle with brown beer. Smells very strongly of coffee, I mean serious coffee smell? Taste is similar but mouthfeel is pretty thin. This is just a meh brown ale. I love coffee beers so Iíll rate this higher than most, probably.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
By far the best beer I found while on holiday in Turkey (of the 12 tried) in July 2010.
33cl brown twist top bottle (with the íOí in brown shaped like a coffee bean). The beer was poured into a pint handled glass mug and looked fine. A coffee dark brown body (what a suprise given itís name) and a cream coloured head that gave no lacing and disappeared completely after 20 seconds.
The smell was all coffee and mocca, as was the taste.
I would have liked more body depth, but for a lager based coffee beer it was otherwise very good. The beer was semi-sweet and heavily carbonated.
As I stated earlier the best beer I found in Turkey.
