3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg. Jet black with a tiny dark coffee coloured head. Nose is whisky and cream with coconut, vanilla, nutmeg and coffee. In the mouth it's thick and slick - a burn through the nose at first, then coffee, coconut, vanilla icecream, baileys Irish cream and biscotti. In that order. Like a rich dessert. Sipper and enjoyer. Finish is boozy and long. Delicious.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
33 cl. bottle split with Kogymo @ ’t Antwaerps Bierhuyske. Pours archetypical black with a semi-head of mocha bubbles. Nose is very rich with coffee (reminding me heavily of the Koppi from the Weasel), huge coffee roast with ashes, molasses, very thick, almost vinous with touch very dark red grapes, sticky, touch espresso. Taste is hugely roasted, charred almost, lots of bitter coffee beans, sticky molasses, light dark red grapes, very bitter lingering roast with the sticky sludge coffee in the back. No alcohol taste but does feel definitely stronger than 11 % ABV, more in the range of 13 – 14 % ABV. Body is slightly molasses-like, substantial, not much carbonation. Very solid, more bitterness than I expected but very solid coffee RIS even if I am not entirely sure about the price point.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl bottle @ wPBF’14, no BBE info. Thanks olio!
Aroma is a bit unexpected with salty licorice and some coffee. Flavour has rather salty licorice, some dark chocolate and coffee. Finishes with some herbal tones and more saltiness. Warms my throat after every sip. Just too salty – and I expected this to have more coffee.

Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Viktoriagade
Black color with brown head. Nice sour coffee aroma. Full bodied; smooth mouthfeel, strong roasted malt flavor, strong coffee, a bit ashy in the end. Strong bitterness. Light residual sweetness. Hints of very dark chocolate. A bit salty. In the end, it seems too roasty.
Powerful but uncomplicated.
