3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the Roadhouse BBQ, Bangkok. Poured a clear dark brown with little life. The aroma is roasty, liqourice, light caramel, hints of fake sugar. The flavour is moderate sweet with a roasty malt liqourice, light coffee, chocolate, light watery metallic palate. Medium bodied with flat carbonation. Nowhere near as good as I expected. In fact I feel a little cheated.

Lots of coffee, caramel and vanilla from the malt. Not much of note from the hops - they stay in the background. On the sweet and thin side. Impressive taste given the ABV but I preferred the beer geek version.

330 ml bottle at home. Pours deep dark brown, no head. Cold coffee roast, a tad of burnt caramel and burnt toast. Light body, hiigh on roasty dryness. Mocca taste, cold coffee bitterness. Interesting.

Bottle at home, bought at Geers. Roast, high carbo, dry and light-bodied, fair enough but not a match for regular Beer Geek Breakfast, even considering thr ABV.

Bessen, koffie, chocola in balans met een bittere boventoon. Zware smaken dus maar toch blijft het betrekkelijk fris. Backlog from 2014/10/25.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rating #1373 - 10.12.2014 - Christmas Party for 1 at Charcut. Pours a thick black with a tan head. Nose is toasted malt, coffee grinds, woodsmoke. Taste is more of these flavours, solid bitterness from the roasted malt and hop character. Lots of coffee flavour and the thick mouthfeel expected of oatmeal stouts. Unreal depth for 4.8%.
