3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Dark red. Dirty head. Big coffee aroma, roasty. Coffee dominates taste, quite dry. Palate is medium. Roasty. The coffee flavour reminds me of instant coffee.. but it works surpsrisingly well. Shared a small bottle by four, sufficient.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Dark reddish brown coloured. Brown fluffy head. Aroma of cold coffee, fruitsweetness and dusty caramel. Flavour is light roasty and has notes of light brunt coffee. Again quite dusty. Is quite balanced and subdued in the aroma and flavours. Medium bodeid. Dry roasty end. Overall a good coffee touch in this very drinkable brew.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Dark, reddish beer with aroma of coffee and chocolate. The flavor is way too coffee-ish for my taste, one should probably have some food to go with it. Medium mouthfeel. Intensely coffee-ish finish. (061124)

Dark brown and clear. Lasting, beige head. Aroma like sweet, milky coffee. The flavor has a more pure coffee flavor. Aroma has perhaps also some cinnamon-notes.

Bottle 0,33l. Almost black with a mocca coloured head. Strong aroma of - coffee. Taste of coffee. Dry bitter aftertaste making you think that you have just drunk a cup of cold coffee. Too unvaried to become a good beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 bottle purchased when leaving the St Albans BF ’06 and enjoyed at home on a Saturday evening after dinner. Very nice bottle design! Pours a rocky brownish foam over a black red-tinged body. The foam vanished to almost nothing after a while. Well rounded aroma of dark chocolate with a noticeable touch of licorice. Taste of roasted coffee beans supported by a few notes of peppermint and a discreet yeasty bitterness in the ending. Crispy and a bit thin mouthful (11.11.2006).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy, dark brown with a big brownish head. Interesting and quite sweet aroma with roasted notes. I have a hard time picking up the coffee though. Flavour is sweet, again with roasted notes. But unlike the aroma, the coffee is very present here. Also has a sourish touch. Bitter finish with lingering roasted notes. Remote notes of hops. A nice beer, but a bit too sweet in both aroma and flavour. 03-11-06.
