From notes on 5/29. Didn’t really care for the smell. To me, it smelled like dirt. Really through my experience off. Had a nice thick black body. Awesome coffee taste. The smell though, I just couldn’t get past it.

Bottle. Light black pour with a frothy tan head. Nose has tons of hoppy notes, some roast and coffee. Taste is dominated by bitter coffee, french press, some light notes of tropical fruits.

Black color with medium brown head. Aroma has roasted malts and coffee, with a marked grassy and citrus hops. Taste follows the aroma, roasty/toasty flavour, with coffee, dark chocoate, some molasses and the same citrus and grassy/herbal characters. Bitterweet aftertaste. Really good.

Bottle thanks to LukasMH! Pours a pitch black with a big, frothy, brown head. Aroma is extremely hoppy! Roasty, fresh hops, dry hop, simcoe, licorice, coffee. Taste is very roasty and bitter. Huge hoppy bitterness as well, lots of coffee. Very dominated by bitter nuances, but with a big smooth body. Average to high carbonation.

Bottiglia 33cl@ giangaspero.
Nera con bella schiuma.
Caffè schietto e finale al luppolo, potenzialmente una vaccata tremenda, invece è equilibrata ed intensa

500ml bottle enjoyed for about an hour at Café Viking, Nørrebro. The oily pour reveals a deep black body topped by a fading fawn-coloured head, leaving dotted spots on the glass. Solid roasted dark malts on the nose, ashy dry. Delicious taste profile of coffee, dark chocolate, liquorice and ash. Lingering dark bitter tail, nicely roasted. Full bodied. Just lovely (Copenhagen 02.05.2015).

Very enjoyable brew. Wonder what it would be with age?? Great oats and stout malt taste. Overall little taste of coffee. Wish there were more.
