3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice beige head, with small bubbles. Smells like roasted malt/chicory coffee, some hoppy notes. Black, clear, but quite fizzy, what does not help at all. Deep dark coffee taste, with a note of deeply roasted coffee seeds. Leaves a sourly, bitter aftertaste. Lively carbonation, medium to full bodied, quite oily. To much bubbles to get a top score, but really impressive!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: some coffee and a little chocolate; there?s some bluntness to the aroma that I can?t quite isolate or name. Appearance: black; opaque; head medium, fine, stable. Taste: a little more bitter than sweet, slightly sour. Palate: body nearing full; carbonation average; mouth feel spicy; finish faint, bittersweet. Overall: feels portery to some degree. This would explain the high rating because much as this beer is fairly decent and almost enjoyable, I can frankly see no other rationale for it than the strange obsession ratebeer users seem to have with anything that smells remotely of coffee or chocolate.
