On bottle at Borefts BF 09. All coffee but not much beer. Way too much coffee. Lovely though for a coffee head but too much coffee to be balanced.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ 1st BBF, De Molen.
Pours deep black with a small, creamy, off-white film head. Aroma has lots of lovely coffee, softly roasted malts. Light hops. Light carbonation, light and fine mouthfeel. Flavour is pleasantly sweet, dark chocolate, coffee and lightly roasted. Pretty decent and very drinkable. I didnít know the ABV until now, so Iím really amazed that itís 10% and not 6 or so.
