An extremely well balanced beer. I’m really impressed that it’s "only" 8,3 ABV.

4.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Poured from bottle. Pours jet black engine oil. Doesn’t retain much of a head.
Smell - the beer isn’t that strong smelling. I am picking up coffee, and subtle hints of chocolate, but it’s not very well prounounced.
Taste - wow. The taste just completely shatters your noses impression. This is amazing. Nice silky mouthfeel, roasted coffee and chocolate. It is so smooth at 8.3%. With every sip I keep saying to myself how amazing this beer is. Its like you could pour it over a bowl of icecream. 10/10 on the taste.
Probably the best balanced coffee beer you can find. Get it!!

Below average. Boring, wouldn’t drink again. Coffee flavor is dull and tannic. Consistency is thin. Aroma is poor.
