4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft @ BBF. Aroma is deep bitter coffee, very aromatic.
Flavour is deeeeep coffee, mildly bitter, just very good coffee.
Did I mention there’s coffee? Ok so it’s onesided, but when it’s a side that’s this good I don’t mind. Long and full finish, especially for 6%.
Bring me some of this when I wake up!

Draught at Borefts Beer Festival 2010, courtesy of, and poured by, Christoffer, the creator of this incredible brew - thank you sir! Hazy purplish chestnut color, small tan head. Aroma of coffee grounds, bitter cocoa, vanilla, cinnamon. Taste is dilute coffee, dark chocolate. Great mouthfeel for a light bodied beer. One of my favorites of the whole festival.

Strong espresso smell and similar taste. The taste lasts a long time but there is little more to be found in the taste than the pure espresso taste.
