2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
330 ml bottle. BB 11/096/2018. (Alko) Tampere, Finland.
Black colour with a small tan head.
Black coffee in the aroma. Maybe there’s some sweetness, spices and malt in the background too. The flavour is sweetness, spices, coffee and malt. Quite bad combination to be honest. Blah... the coffee is too overwhelming.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l. from Alko, 20131122) The beer poured dark brown and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had chocolate, coffee, caramel and sweetness. Palate was medium bodied and warming with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste had malts, coffee and bitterness. The coffee didn’t really fit in this beer and the use of all the flavour additives felt like cheating.

33cl bottle from Alko. Dark brown, thin white head. Coffee, cream liqueur, toffee, malt in aroma. Flavor has coffee, candy, cream liqueur, yeast, toasted malt. Long warming finish. Sparkling mouthfeel. Why some many artificial ingredients/aroma? Smells and tastes artificial as well. Good bodied.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Botteld. Dark amber/brown beer, creamy thinnish head. Creamy ice coffee aroma with milk chocolatey and slight berryish yeast notes. A touch of alcohol. Surprisingly dry taste with dark caramel and fudge. Finishes berryish, milk chocolatey and slightly alcoholic. Medium body, sligtly sugary, medium carbonation. Not my thing.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Great aroma reminds me of special coffee: lots coffee beans, cacao, licorice. Black beer with no head. Taste and palate are not up to aroma’s standard; medium body, sweet with lots alcohol, same elements as aroma has. Worth tasting for aroma alone.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
absolutely shocked at what I thought it was as opposed to what it is. aroma smells of mocha? flavor is of fresh roasted coffee beans, chocolate and some faint hint of spice that I cant tell what it is. alchohol is present and balanced with the flavor. this is so nice. not what I expected in a Belgium strong ale but im not complaining
