Tap. Aroma strong malts with dark coffee dominant. Black body thin crema top. Coffee is even more evident in the taste where it slightly overwhelmed the rest. In this respect the languor disappoints since one expected more. But this remains the most interesting ale I have had in months.

larsga (7293) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2016
Medium brown head. Opaque black body. Roasty earthy aroma with fruity mealy cocoa and toasted rice notes. Dryish fruity roasty earthy taste with cocoa and toasted rice notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish earthy wooden cocoa aftertaste with mealy notes. Nice, drinkable, and a bit odd. (0.33l bottle, from some shop in Clerkenwell.)

berkshirejohn (5988) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2016
33cl bottle from Beer52.com. An opaque peaty brown coloured pour with a close caramel coloured head; sweet, malty caramel aroma; quite lively in the mouth, with a rich, smooth, chocolaty taste, and a creamy texture; then some sweet coffee and light Kentish hops; but then a rather disappointingly thin finish with chocolate and caramel, and some earthy warmth from the hops. Good, but needs more finish.
