3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pitch black with a light creamy brown head. Aroma of the inside of a coffee grinder, with light caramel sweetness playing in the background by no means balancing it up. Flavour is coffee dominated, some roast malts, caramel and vanilla in there too. Roasty, long, bitter finish. One bottle was enough.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Near black colored, little light brown head. Coffee dominates in sweet aroma, only mild roastiness comes up. Medium bodied. Flavor has maybe less coffee, chocolate, roastiness and sweet vanilla there too. Still too much coffee here, aftertaste dries mildly.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of coffee. And more coffee. Very dark color with ruby hilites. The white head dissipated quickly. Medium mouthfeel. Starts with coffee. Shifts to coffee. Finishes with coffee. To be fair there may be a bit of chocolate. The coffee tends to vary from start to finish. But it’s still all coffee. Dry finish. No particular hint of bitter. Not like anything I have had before.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This one is pitch black with a nice, light brown head. My nose is met by a distinct coffee aroma, and after a while I also sense other notes of roasted malt and a weak hint of smoke. The same goes for the flavour. This must be the ideal beer for a coffee lover. It was a fun, nice and exciting experience.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2007 (Bottled) Hazy, dark reddish brown with a medium, tanned, lacy and partly lasting head. Dryish, quite delicious coffee-liquour/coffee beans aroma. Dry, slightly ashy flavor - much like mocca-filled chocolates. Medium-bodied, slightly thin palate with medium carbonation. Surprisingly pleasant and interesting. I think you could call this a "special brew" for a reason.
