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.

VastActiv (5328) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 12, 2014
Bottle 0.5l at Ölhus Stockholm, Helsinki. Brewed 03.04.12. Bottled 18.04.12. Colour is dark brown with slightly brownish white head. Aromas and flavours: Massive coffee, some sweetness and roasted malts. Pretty one-dimensional but enjoyable.

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.

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.

Lagerboy (1836) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 15, 2014
50 cl bottle. Deep dark hueless brown, firm creamy tan foam eventually rings. Aroma of coffee and chocolate malt. Dark roast bitter coffee bean taste, sweet smooth creamy milky dark chocolate, light earthy herbal hop. Softer carbonation, medium-full bodied, moderately hopped. Finishes dry and lightly bitter. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

Noir avec une mousse moyenne marron. L’arôme est du café, chocolat, levure et malt torréfié. Le goût a tout ça avec un peu de molasse. C’est un peu onctueux. C’est comme boire un bon expresso et une bonne bière au même temps! Chouette! ;)

@ Havregatan. Flaska från Den Nordiske Ölhandel, Köpenhamn. Kaffe, rostade toner, soja, vanilj, hög sötma, medelfyllig. En ganska söt avslutning med kaffe och rostade toner. Skulle kunnat vara lite beskare.

Finn (6091) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2014
Flaske 0,5l på Vertshuset Skarven 1 Mai 13. Svart. Lavt mokkafarget skum. Svak - men god kaffearoma. Myk munnølelse. Smaken har et behagelig kaffepreg. Har et klart frukt & bærpreg med hint av røyk. Mye sedimenter.

500 ml bottle. Dark pour. Light body. Decent overall coffee taste. Bit astringent. Ok coffee porter.
