COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Impenetrabile color mogano con riflessi rubino. Schiuma cappuccino, aderente allo stile, compatta e persistente. Il caffè domina le prime impressioni olfattive, e pur rimanendo il filo conduttore, presto cede il passo ad altre sensazioni aromatiche: liquirizia, cioccolato ed un rinfrescante tocco di Vetyver sul finale. Palato pieno, con un retrolfattivo corrispondente ed un finale alcolico e persistente.

33cl bottle @ home. Better to sip this alone, I tried it along with some pistacchio chocolate, but the very best of it came after a few sips without it. Pour a black liquid, with shades of brown, head is small but persistent Nose is raw but very interesting, I get ground coffee, tobacco, cocoa, I’d say a little leather and a warm sweet liquorice and dark fruits note after a while. Very harsh and bitter at first sip, it gives its best in the end, with some really slight alcoholic sweetness and a hint of acidity that makes it drinkable. Long pleasant aftertaste. If I was to describe this beer in a word it would be rustic, I had more "elegant" imperial stouts, more chocolatey, but this is one of my favourites.

Pours pitch black with a cappuccino head; funny how every little bubble was perfectly alligned. Aroma is very rich of coffe, chocolate, liquorice and assorted spices and the taste keeps all of that. Very sweet and aromatic but not too much. The full body and medium-low carbonation makes it very sirupy... but beware of the alcoholic content! Very good, it reminded me a lot of Mikkeller’s Vanilla Shake, just a bit tamer.

madnorwegian (123) - FRANCE - APR 17, 2016
A VERY flavorful beer: coffee, leather, tabacco, burnt toast all mixted into a syrupy brew. Packs 9% alcohol so isn’t something you can have too much of. Would drink again beside a fireplace in winter.

Diabobale (434) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - APR 3, 2016
Colore ebano scuro privo di schiuma. Al naso alcol predominante, legno, qualche nota tostata e di caffè non torrefatto. Corpo setoso, oleoso, con carbonazione assente. Al palato solo amaro da caffè ed erbaceo. Piatta nel complesso.

Bawelt (417) - Lyon, FRANCE - MAR 6, 2016
Assez forte, manque de diversité côté arôme et d’équilibre. Nez assez fort, éthylique, on sent un fond épicé, très torréfié (trop ?) et des notes de café. La bouche est assez forte, plutôt éthylique également, assez épicée comme si on avait mit un peu de piment. On va trouver de légères notes boisées, un café assez fort mais qui manque d’arômes. Manque clairement de rondeur ou d’amertume pour lui donner une identité propre sinon son côté inutilement bourrin. Loin d’être mauvaise mais pas transcendante.

sonotono (231) - torino, ITALY - JAN 8, 2016
Bottiglia stappata e risultata quasi del tutto priva di carbonazione, zero schiuma, quindi il seguente giudizio ne risulta pesantemente condizionato. Nera impenetrabile, senza schiuma. Odore legnoso, liquoroso, caffè, tostato, liquirizia. Setosa, oleosa in bocca, carbonazione assente; sapore liquoroso, caffè, tostato, legno, tabacco. Difficile da bere virtualmente senza rifermentazione in bottiglia. Peccato.

Fassbier. Kaffee und Zartbitterschokolade! Röstaromen, leichte Süße. Man riecht schon, was man anschließend schmeckt. Sehr dunkel, wenig Schaumkrone. Im Abgang bleibt die Schokolade lang erhalten. Sehr lecker.

laiti (7887) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 11, 2015
33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 31.07.2016
Lots and lots of foam when pouring. Aroma has cold coffee, some chocolate, ash and hints of vegetables. A bit stinging palate, too much CO2. Flavour has cold coffee, chocolate, licorice and hints of vegetables. Also some ashy vichy notes typical to beers too high on CO2. Somewhat enjoyable despite all that.
