I’m not a fan of coffee, but this beer wasn’t bad. It’s rich dark color and thick beige head are almost as enticing as the vanilla aroma. The coffee really comes through at the end.

adster (120) - HUNGARY - JUL 7, 2014
Olajosan, sziruphoz hasonló módon csordogál a pohárba ez az éjfekete színű, fahéj árnyalatú, visszafogott habkoronával rendelkező főzet. Illatában fás, intenzíven pörkölt kávészemes aromák cikáznak egy enyhén borsos, fűszerpaprikás színezet kíséretében. Belekóstolva mintha egy csésze, éjszakára a szabadban felejtett kávét szürcsölgetnénk, ehhez ízének jellegzetességein túl olajos sűrűségű textúrája is kellő alapot szolgáltat. A kávészemek zamata olyannyira markáns ízvilágot kölcsönöz a főzetnek, hogy e tulajdonsága minden korty során dominál, a korábban kóstolt Mikkeller specialitáshoz képest így kissé talán markánsabb és mindenképpen vehemensebb, mely mondanivaló valószínűleg nem titkolt szándéka is volt a sörfőzőknek, az üveg címkéje legalábbis igen találó módon jellemzi a sör karakterét.

b3shine (5156) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs; thanks jmborggren). Looks good; an opaque dull black with tan head that steadily dissipates into thin lacing. Smells of dark malt, chocolate, and mild coffee and roast. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel that’s pleasantly full-bodied. Good beer.

Fin (7257) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2014
Bottle from ’Jacks’, Westholme Stores, Goring on Thames, had this on holiday at Camping La Paz, Nr Llanes, Asturian coast, Spain, Tuesday 17th June 2014 Pours black with beige sparkly bubbled head, coffee on nose. In mouth coffee dominates, it is quite thick and a little sweet, alcohol apparent and there are typical roasted flavours. Its fine, quite nice even, but not totally my thing in fact it will be a tricky one to finish on my own. A7 A4 T6 P3 Ov13 3.3

bigben873 (132) - Virginia, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Beautiful black beer with minimal aroma and light head. Slight smoky flavor but not too much with a subtle coffee flavor. More light a cross between an imperial stout and a coffee stout.

mgajdaczewa (429) - Katowice, POLAND - MAY 26, 2014
Aromat likieru kawowego z nutami czekolady i, niestety, ciut nadmierną alkoholowością, mimo to pełny i przyjemny. W smaku pełne, wyraźnie kawowe z nutami mlecznej czekolady, lekka śliwka i rodzynki. Finisz z delikatną chmielową nutą z wyrazistą czekoladą gorzką. Fajny likierek.

Bottle at The Rake. Pours a very dark brown/black with a tan head. Aroma has choc, coffee, vanilla, light grass. Full body, medium carbonation. Light coffee, milk choc, light treacle, toffee, rum, sticky dark fruit... Well balanced. It's tasty., ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tselloufc88 (77) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle from Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Black appearance with a beige head. Aroma is of a not too strong coffee. Taste is much stronger! Hints of chocolate and vanilla sweetness. You certainly can taste the percentage in this one. One to be enjoyed at room temperature.
