This beer even looks like a cup of coffee! Sharp aroma. Big espresso coffee taste with a subtler hint of chocolate. An excellent middle of the day pick me up version of the stronger beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home in London - picked up at Kris Wines. Pours deep brown with a frothy beige head that settles down just a little too quickly for my liking. The aroma holds some edgy coffee, chocolate, roast. Light sweet flavor with fairly authentic black coffee, some baking cocoa, earthy bitterness, faint burnt brown sugar. Light bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with more coffee character, subtle dark and dried berries, more bittersweet chocolate notes, scorched earth, wood. The closest a beer has come to being like straight black coffee, which is some kind of accomplishment. Good work, Lervig.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Opaque black beer with a thin beige head. Smell of coffee, fruit and hop. Flavour is lighter than I expected. Body is good, but it’s livelier than I anticipated. Vanilla, a bit of fruit and coffee.

Black with crazy foamy tan head. Cocoa nibs and vanilla aroma. Rich milk chocolate vanilla and a little bit of spice. Absolutely delicious

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Anniversary present from Pix. Pours deep brown with a rapidly dissipating tan head. Really nice coffee aroma. The taste is quite sweet with notes of cola and plenty of coffee. The body is a little on the thin side. Good beer.

Bottle round Ma and Pa’s, Christmas Day 2014. Slender yellow tan top on a glossy tar body. Moderate condition. Aroma of coal, grilled aubergines, Jagermeister, cinder toffee dunked in black coffee. Smoky Twiglet stirred blood and mocha notes tingling with fizz. Jagermeister and well-carbonised berries. Chew of Black Jack. Good solid bog standard stout.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with moderate head of big bubbles. Aromas of dark molasses, coffee, cola and burnt malts. Flavors of dry nutty dark chocolate, burnt black coffee and ash. Bitter for an oatmeal stout. I’ll stick with the higher ABV Brunch Weasel.
