Bottle. Dark borwn with lasting head. Roasted malts (roated coffee beans?) and liqoruice dominate from start to finish, quite full flavored, little tar-ish. Gourmetbryggeriet is getting better and better (also at achieving the right carbonation imo).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep dark brown with an orange shine; huge, fluffy yellowish head. Dark malts, very perfumey, a bit of soy sauce - Japanese, I’d say - or... nut syrup? Taste is cigarette ash, bit of dry chocolate malts, underbrush flavours. It’s more complex than I can express, because very discreet. Ends sweet, and roasted. Medium to well-bodied. OK stout. Won’t deplace mountains, but deserves its place.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Clear and very dark brown with a warm, reddish glow and a creamy, light brown head leaving a neat lacework. Aroma - oddly - mostly of alcohol. Full-bodied with notes of chocolate and burned malt, while the coffee is strangely subdued in this bottle. Distinct ashy edge (like licking an ashtray....) but not really very bitter. 100406

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled: Dark brown red colorued. Light brown dense head. Light coffee and light roasty nose. Has som quite grassy ntes. Flavour of roast, initial mild coffee and light fruit. The initial mild coffee notes transform into a very strong and hard coffee dominance, that last all through to the end. Quite amazing, but a bit onedimensional. Is very coffeebitter in the end. LIke when you make a very strong cup of coffee.

Bottled. Black appearance. No real head on this beer. Fortunately the coffee in this beer is quite obvious. Quite dry finish. A good beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with a beautiful thick light brown head. Sweet aroma of malt and chocolate, a bit weak but nice. Vague notes of coffee in the background, can’t say if it is Blue Mountain though ;-) More coffeish in the flavor with a roasted note and sweet chocolate also. Soft mouthfeel, a little too much carbonation though. Good bitterness in the finish. The best beer from GB so far, I wish they would distribute beers like this more and not only the average beers they produce. Well done!
