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 ’O’ 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 it’s 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.

Bottle kindly provided by Odland. Pours clear deep mahogany with a small, creamy, light brown head. Kahlua and roasted notes heavily on the nose. Tastes earthy with a masive presence of coffee, boiled vegetables, vanilla and chocolate. Medium body. Light syrupy texture. Kahlua dominates the long finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled@my birthdaybash@Chriso. Deep amber colour with small beige head. Aroma is coffee, some mild toasted notes and mild floral notes. Flavour is very similar. Not as bad as I expected. A bit one dimensional though.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2012 330ml bottle, best before 15/02/12, drunk in December 2011. Reddish brown colour. Full-on sweet coffee extract aroma with a very artificial feel. More of the same on the palate. Nothing very beer-like here - seemed more like a soft drink really. Surprised to see it is 6.1%. Sweet and thin. Not really my thing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Pat’s birthday tasting at chriso’s. Pours clear brown with a foamy, white head. Sweet coffee nose. Cappuccino. Very sweet flavor, mocha, creamy cappuccino. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish, more mocha. I would say the beer is heavily underrated.

1.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle at Pat’s birthday tasting at Chriso’s. Colour is clear dark brown. Nose is very very sugary black coffee. Brown sugar and lactic notes. Taste is sweet sweet black coffee. Thin but cloying as if you’d put 10 brown sugars in a cold black instant coffee. Sickly.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 330ml. -Brown coloured, medium sized pale brown head, coffee nose with hint of chocolate. Sweet coffee chocolate taste with slightly watery palate. Simple and not so sugary beer as I’ve expected. Pleasant coffee caramel finish and aftertaste. I’m not so big coffee fan but this one is quite nice and also underrated.
