4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Haven’t rated a beer in years, but this one really inspired me. Such a richly balanced combination of coffee and chocolate. Beautiful full palate with gentle carbonation, carries these flavours so nicely. This is one lovely beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
pretty good version of a coffee stout. I actually get a strong currant flavor which isn’t bad but I prefer more of a bitter roasted flavor especially sine this has espresso beans added. Huge down tick for me is almost $6 for a 330ml bottle! That is insane! Won’t buy again due to price but a very we’ll made stout.

Geruch leicht säuerlich mit Kaffeenoten. Im Geschmack kommt dann der Espresso klar durch, der wie ein Espresso auch nachhängt.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer pours a dark black color with a thick khaki head that had good retention and left great lacing around the glass. The aroma is espresso, dark coffee, chocolate, dark fruits, some ash. The flavor is dark roasted barley, dark roasted bitter coffee, charcoal, dark fruits, and some chocolate. I don’t pick up much hops and the mouthfeel is medium. For the price, this beer is not an every day drinker but it is worth at least one try.

Bottled. Aroma dark roasted malts, pretty intense. Very dark colour. Taste is strongly coffeeish. Rather coffee dregs than fresh espresso, but nicely fruity nevertheless and full of dark roasted flavours. Very good.

330ml bottle bb07/2015, courtesy of Calisky, merci. Nice black, medium-thick pour with beige head. Still contained aromas, even upon warming, of Hasseltse koffie, aka strong filter coffee with a dash of jenever. Bit of a sleek aluminium character to it as well. Really shines in taste, with very potent arabica berries, precise roast, more strong filter coffee rather than espresso, thinly strewn out bitter chocolate merging with exotic stone fruit hops in the back. Great dry finish recalling pulverised version of all those tastes. Should be very impressed if the label is to be believed that this is a Reinheitsgebot brew.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Valentine’s label version 330ml bottle from Liquors Hasegawa in Tokyo. Poured into a English tulip pint. Black with a caramel hue and huge brown sugar colored head that dissipates fairly quickly. Cacao and malt aroma is big and in-your-face. Hints of coffee and milk chocolate present as well. Taste is big, bold and chocolatey with nice dark roasted coffee swirled in on the palate. Reminds me of a cafe mocha. As it comes to room temperature the flavors persist and a little dark fruit sneaks out as well: currant, fig and plum. Gorgeous beer.
