4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Gorgeous Dutch coffee stout with the beans used to striking effect. Appearance: coffee-bean brown with a cappuccino head. Soft, rounded aroma - cafe creme, milky chocolate, very faint licorice root - nothing to really excite as yet. Comes alive on the tongue. Thick, creamy body, perfect for the style. Starts off smooth and silky at the front of the palate but opens up with a lovely, rich burst of coffee/hop bitterness. Just beautiful. Perfect level of residual sugars for my taste. This is how I like my coffee and my stouts. (330ml bottle from Leura Cellars)

Angenehme Säure und Espressogeschmack, Überhaupt nicht alkoholig, vollmundig und sehr lecker zu Schockobrownies mit Wallnüssen.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared bottle in De Bierboom (Brugge) on 6th Feb 2015. Cheers whoever brought this. Deep, dark brown body with a beige, thinning top. Coffee notes rule the whole brew with the flavour overpowering all the other ingredients and tastes/aromas. I liked the creamy, smooth body and the flavours, but if coffee is not your thing, leave this alone (the name gives away the flavours anyway).

First of all: the mothfeel of this beer is unbelievable creamy. This is a liquid coffee-toffee-fudge! A glance of what coffe roasters and chocolatiers have to offer. Some might say that this is too much - I think that this is wonderful.
I love heavy strong beers and I love coffee. So this is a perfect melange to me ;-)

Bottle from German e-shop
Dark brown color with white head, lasting and lacing. Aroma is roasted dark malts, chocolate, very malty but no definite aroma from the coffee. Flavor follows with roasted malts and dark fruits, coffee, cacao and nice bitter and dry aftertaste. Carbonation is soft. This beer is full of roasted malty flavors, very nice!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brown to black, dense caramel froth, aroma of coffee, very malty, a hint of smoked.
On the palate dense, bitter, black coffee, you feel the alcohol but for a beer with 9,5 % it’s quite integrated.
