beer-yum (1298) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 27, 2016
Hugely appealing coffe aroma in a jet black pour. Brilliantly balanced mix of coffee and beer is one of the best examples of the style (US Cold Coffee Stout) I’ve had. The restrained strength only adds to the appeal...seriously, this is an excellent beer.

tomekk1978 (1302) - Z±bki, POLAND - JUL 30, 2016
Aromat: przyjemne połączenie palonych słodów, czekolady i kawy. Niestety trochę utlenione.

Wygląd: barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta z brązową, drobno pęcherzykową pianą, obfitą i dosyć trwałą.

Smak: raczej wytrawna podstawa (choć i słodycz z czasem się uaktywnia), z nutą kwaskowości pochodzącą od ciemnych słodów. Paloność, czekolada gorzka i mleczna, melano i sporo kawy. Goryczka umiarkowana, słodowa, przyjemna. Średnia pełnia, umiarkowane wysycenie i gładki, wytrawny finisz z nutą kwaskową i lekko alkoholową.

Wielosłodowość to niewątpliwa zaleta tego piwa, choć o niektórych słodach dotąd nawet nie słyszałem. Szkoda tylko tego utlenienia, bo mogłoby być wyżej.

ryanhunter_4 (217) - 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 (6609) - 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 (13677) - 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.
