3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled (from Alko Prisma, Vaasa). Very deep coppery colour with a mediumsized beigeish brown head. Aroma is coffee and chocolate. Not much else. And the same goes for the flavour. A surprisingly big coffee beer for being Belgian, but over this I would take the brune/bruin any day.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
18th January 2014
Almost opaque dark brown beer, small bubbly tan head. Palate is smooth and semi dry, decent fine carbonation. Sweet malts, light floralness. Toffee streak and something vaguely like cheap chocolate. Little spice. Light semi dry finish brings mild marmite. Lots of flavour here but I could not drink much of this, gets chewy.

750 c&c from Healthy Spirits. Pours with a slight beige head. Aroma is very coffee. Med body. Flavor is light treacle, coffee and low quality chocolate. Otherwise a damn nice drink. Highly recommended as a sipper.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2014 330ml bottle (Alko, Helsinki) - gift from mjs - thanks! (5:4:3:1:7=2.0)
Cheap instant coffee aroma, some chocolate too. Nice dark brown, persistent tan head. Nasty chemical flavourings. Some sourness accompanies the sweetness, which is quite high. Coffee is stale. On swallowing, I get a wave of salivation which I know is an instinctive vomit precursor. Baaaaaaad. However, this does cover the alcohol very well. Bumping overall from 6 to 7 because of that.
Rerate: 330ml bottle (Alko, Tampere) (3:3+:4:2:6=)
Cheap Irish coffee aroma, cheap coffee, and hot alcohol. Taste messy sweet stale coffee. Sweet stodgy malts, rich and heavy, coffee again, but better Nope.
