Acid303 (568) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - MAY 10, 2014
50cl bottle, served in Snifter @ Homo Sibaris. Pours deep dark brown with medium beige creamy head (lasting). Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate and hints of coffee. Bitter taste because of the blend coffe + hops, balanced by the malts which give a chocolaty touch. Very nice coffee grains on the palate. Full body, perfect carbonation. So balanced and smooth.

TBone (14785) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 20, 2014
Bottle at Beer Hunters. I have rated this before but I noticed that my rating is not on RB so needs to drinked again. Dark brown color, small off-white head. Aroma has pure coffee, coffee beans. Medium-bodied. Flavor is cold coffee, some caramel and low bitterness. This is vintage 2012. Clearly thinner than back then and less aggressive coffee.

Inbreak (3350) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - APR 15, 2014
Old rating rerated 15.04.2014, 0,5l bottle @ Café Spesial:
Nice light brown creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly rich, licorice, espresso, dark malts, toffee, chocolate pudding, dark sugar, soy sauce. Taste is slightly rich and sour-ish, espresso, dark malts, burnt caramel, licorice, chocolate, dark sugar, grass. Medium to longlasting bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Very nice, but I wish they would stick to the recipe from the very first batch of this one. It was way better.

500ml bottle (0lhus Stockholm, Helsinki)
Black, and I managed to get a gorgeous tight tan head. Woh, yup, that’s coffee. Hedonistically that’s good, it melds with the roast very well. Taste - wow! Lovely sweet roast, coffee accompanies that perfectly. Lactose sweetness not too sweet. Finish has a great roasty burntness, and the coffee again accompanies that so well. This is brilliant integration of coffee in beer, few have done it so well. Late finish does return coffee to the fore. This is wonderful.

Wolfbass (1025) - Firenze, ITALY - MAR 31, 2014
Considerando che non sono un grande amante dello stile, devo dire che questa è davvero l’evoluzione dello stesso. Veramente complimenti a questo birrificio, che ancora una volta sforna una birra meravigliosa.

Ragnampiza (751) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - MAR 23, 2014
2011 vintage. 500 ml bottle from Portale Birra, served in a snifter glass. Pitch black, no light passing through, with a nice, fluffy dark beige head. Good lacing. Still lots of coffee in the nose, mild dark fruits, black berries, toasted malts, liquorice. Same notes emerging in the mouth, with some added meaty and almost soy sauce qualities, slightly ashy and moderately sweet. Lingering coffee aftertaste. A bit more lively and dry than expected. Average carbonation, medium to full body and slightly oily texture. For a 3+ years bottle, it held great! I would love to try it fresh one time.
