3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
compared to the taste the nose is way restrained... i love the colour of this. like bright brown... flavour is intense and all up front. falls away quickly so it’s pretty light on the palate. but that upfront flavour is so tasty

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle sampled in 2006. Beautiful dark amber, close to black body with a big, cremay tan head. Lovely aroma as well, coffee, dark chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor of sweet, dark malt, strong coffee, dark chocolate and hint of dry fruit. Full body and a long and smooth aftertaste with lots of coffee. A nice one for the coffee enthusiasts.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a dark copper/brown color with about a half inch light tan head that went away quickly. However, there’s a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells mostly like coffee, along with some roasted malt and bittersweet chocolate. I think the taste is pretty much like the aroma, but there’s also some grainy malt and some nutty flavor, too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick and goes down easy. It’s good and worth a try, but pricey at $4.99 a bottle.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Smak och doft av humle, malt, choklad, kaffe. Saknar kropp och är lite väl vattnig. Liten beska som avrudar det hela.
