Draft. Like coffee in color -- a clear light brown at the faucet coalescing darker stuff in the glass. The head is a dense expanse of sandy foam. Oily, almost spicy coffee beans in the aroma, backed up by a little grape, milk chocolate and toast. The flavor mirrors the nose, with the sharp beans delivering a jolt of java before a hint of dark fruits and a smooth roasted malts roll in. Surprisingly light on the palate for the alcohol content. A coffee stout in which the beans are almost secondary to the beer -- they accent the stout but don’t overpower its flavors.

Slaktmasken (70) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - APR 8, 2015
2009:a på flaska hos Stage Door, Göteborg (Sista de hade). Mycket trevlig doft av bränt kaffe. Smak av mestadels kaffe, men även lätta toner av choklad. Lite spritig eftersmak.

It pours black with a tan head. It has as strong coffee aroma with spices and roasted malts. The taste begins with an overwhelming coffee taste that is sweet and bitter. It has a rich texture. There is a bitter-sweet finish on the palate.

Black in color with a small white/tan head. Coffee aroma is very strong. Sweet mouthfeel with the tte of coffee. Just enough hops to balance out the beer.

Bottle to pint glass (thanks Steve) Coffee, dark chocolate, nutmet, and plenty of toasted malts. Silky black with a thin light tan head, and spotty lacing. Taste is dark chocolate, black coffee, a little molasses, a touch of milk.

Dark cola colored with a nice mocha head, plenty of lacing. Very dark roasted coffee, like Charbucks style. Roasted malt and licorice. A bit bread like on the finish. Interesting but too much bite from the charred coffee for my taste.
