2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A brown beer with a small brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of chocolate combined with hints of roasted malt. The flavor is very light with notes of chocolate, and the mouthfeel is very carbonated and the body thin.

Black color. Aroma of coffee grounds. Quite watery mouthfeel, with some coffee and black malt, not as dry as European Ales, but poor for me.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Almost black – certainly looks nice. Huge coffee nose with the requisite vegetal notes of too many beans. This shows on the palate, too – all coffee beans and nothing else. The malts are thin, underdeveloped. Hops are nowhere to be found. All the bitterness is derived from the astringency of roast beans. This is completely unbalanced, and only marginally drinkable as a result. Coffee beers should have both coffee and beer.
