yngwie (16065) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2007
Bottled. Clear, brown beer with a tan to beige head. Coffee, roastiness and dry bitterness in the aroma. The flavor has mocha-coffee, some hop-bitterness and coffee-bitterness. Medium to full body. A nice ESB, leading the thoughs towards a porter. (070302)

DonMagi (5595) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2006
Aroma gives roasted malts a bit of spicey sweetness and floural hops towards the end. Taste is simialr a bit too burnt for me could do with a bit more rich sweetness.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2007 Bottled - A dark brown coloured beer with a decent off-white head and some nice lacing. The aroma is malty, fudgy and woody. The taste is dry with some coffee notes. Brown fruits also. A shortish finish but a tasty well flavoured beer. (7,4,8,3,14(3.6))

Rerate Coffee, bread, malts and dark fruits. Noticed the pasteurization more this time. Still drinkable, but still short in the finish. (6,3,7,3,13(3.2))

Score is an average of the two.

Bottle. Clear brownish colour with a medium creamy mostly lasting head. Heavy coffee aroma and taste with notes of malt. Bitter sweet finish. Good beer.
