1.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Dark brown color, frothy head, very strong coffee taste, weak body, abrupt finish. The coffee taste is so strong that it disturbs one’s sense. You are not sure whether you drink beer or ice coffee!

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Istanbul.
Lovely brown color. Caramel, a little spicy, some cinnamon.
Extremely sweet and malty, in fact way too sweet and malty.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle. Pours chestnut with a cream head vanishing to a halo, and the nearest thing to lace I’ve seen from a bira, with the exception of the weizens. Very English, brown ale sweetness aroma of coffee-dunked butter biscuit (not diacetyl) and Crunchie. Sadly, the flavour doesn’t build on that; silky and artificial with a nasty, incongruous back taste; some redeeming cinder toffee, Werthers rolled in granulated Kenco, coffee cake, well-concealed alcohol. Heavily flawed by a nagging, burnt cardboard bitterness, but drinkable all the same, and there’s plenty of inferior beers in Turkey if you go digging..

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at SBWF -09. Clear brown color with off-white head. Aroma is of cream and coffee. Taste is sweet, with cream and artificial coffee, very similar to capuccinocandy. No bitterness. Very different coffee beer, but it’s not too bad. Would probably do well with chocolaty desserts.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Dark brown. Smells like a champ - fake coffee barf. Really bad cheap coffee extract taste - kind of like Coffee Crisp. Horrid. Absolutely horrid. I had a lot of trouble finishing my 1/2 bottle.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Dark brown, nearly opaque and very little head. Aroma is intensely buttery. Off-putting putrid diacetyl that smells stronger than the nescafe mess below. Thin palate is slimy. Flavors are desperate, like reheated gas station coffee. They also linger much longer than I would like them to and I dread each sip.

Can 25 cl. Courtesy of Pinball. Clear orangey brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of sweet sticky coffee. Thin and watery, rather flat, roasted malt and otherwise completely sweet and sugary coffee accents. Lightly bitter finish. A sticky mess really. 250809
