Poured a beautiful dark brown from a bottle. Thin tan head, strong toasty aromas. The coffee really shines through and is nicely balanced by the maltiness. I have yet to find a beer that had too much coffee, and there may not be such a thing. I will definitely come back to this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ryanhunter_4 (209) - La Crete, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 8, 2016
650 ml bottle poured at home. Pours dark brown with slight beige head. First smell was of spice, like Chili powder. After it sat a bit I got more coffee smell. Taste is primarily coffee and has a bitter finish. Good beer.

caesar (6479) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2016
Bottle thx to Benzai, medium sample. Dark brown color, short frothy head. Aroma has lots of coffee, slight roast, bit dark choc. Coffee and roasty bitterness. Slight thin in body, but loads of flavor for a low ABV. Pleasant surprise. Great.

Benzai (12760) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2016
Bottle shared with Caesar @ Caesars mancave. Opaque dark brown color, medium sized beige to light brown color. Aroma is malts, chocolate, mocha, coffee. Tastes about the same: malts, chocolate, mocha, coffee, espresso, chocolate mocha bitter. A bit watery texture, average body and carbonation. Very flavorful, but also very thin imo.
