COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
2011 version, Fazenda Ambiental Fortaleza, 6.4%
2008 version, Rwanda Gatsinga, 6.0% Till en redan fyllig stout har vi tillsatt espresso brygd på det förstklassiga single estate-kaffet från Gatsinga Farm i Rwanda. Genom att brygga expresso och tillsätta till ölet utvinns hela kaffets karaktär och kompletterar ölets rostade chokladtoner på ett utsökt sätt. Rwanda Gatsinga har djup sötma, makalöst komplexa, levande aromer av färska frukter, grönsaker och kryddigt eneträ. Kroppen är medelfyllig och munkänslan mjukt krämig samtidigt som eftersmaken spritter av lätta citrussyror. Resultatet är en härligt stor öl som avnjutes bäst i ensamt majestät.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 29, 2011
Appearance: nice solid blacks with earthen brown-black hues. Tan head is small but firm, bordered by a bubbly collar. Head eventually thins into a filmy layer while swirls produce tannish lace and foam resembling cappuccino and coffee ice cream hues.
Nose: ohmygawd. Pervasive lactose, brewer’s licorice, dark fruits meaty and lightly tart. Frothed milk much like a latte and/or cappuccino, wet. Coffee liqueur and heavy cream mingles with licorice and vanilla extract. Very rich. Super duper moist chocolate cake.
Palate: smooth and creamy, coating mouthfeel. Cream and brewer’s licorice up front, burnt toast in the middle, chocolate long in the finish. Flavors melt seamlessly into and out of each other. Coffee is inseparable from fresh steamed cream. Brewers licorice, prunes, cream, marshmallow, burnt toast, and melt in the mouth chocolate nougat. Coffee café late. Continues with smooth creamy velveteen mouthfeel from first quaff to last. Long lingering finish with crème de cacao and café latte.
Final Thoughts: liquid dreams are made of this. I’d keep multiple bottles of this stocked in the fridge whenever and wherever possible. Simply fanfreakingtastic.

Coffee dominates, obviously, but the chocolate keeps the taste balanced. A bit weak in body, but the rich flavor provides some equilibrium.

nearbeer (3586) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 20, 2009
33cl. Opaque with a lasting, quarter-inch tan cap. Dark chocolate, dark roast coffee, caramel and light char in the nose. Same flavors but in a better balance to check the sweetness. Some tingly mesquite and herb provide dryness and a tongue tingle. Heavy body is silky smooth, and lightly tingly. Excellent for one or a session.

Heathen (1458) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 4, 2010
THOUGHTS: Great beer. It had a lot of the types of flavors and aromas I most enjoy in beer. Very dark and roasty. I know it’s a coffee stout, but there seemed to be way more chocolate then coffee going on in the nose. The body was thinner than I’d expected from the flavor and aroma. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a very dark red that looked black in the glass, but when held to light it had bright red highlights. It also had an average, tan head that mostly diminished and left fair lacing. The aroma was moderate to heavy dark chocolate, chocolate syrup, chocolate milk and lightly roasted malt; lighter coffee; sour coffee and slightly sour dark fruit. The initial flavor was sweet and slightly acidic; while the finish was sweet, lightly acidic, light to moderately bitter and sour with an average to long duration. There was coffee, chocolate syrup, dark chocolate, coffee with sugar, a little dark fruit, chocolate milk, sour coffee and roasted malt. The light to medium body was oily and then a bit dry with fairly soft carbonation and a lightly astringent finish. Overall it was very easy to drink.

Grzesiek79 (3112) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 14, 2013
Wyrazny smak kawy. mocno kofeinowe piwo bo rozpala i podnosi cisnienie a to za sprawa kawy jaka zastosowano w tym szwedzkim stoucie. piwo gozkie palone z mnustwem gozkosci kawowej. gesta ciecz z niewielka piana, czarna i bez przeswitu barwa. Polecam kawoszą

Ljunkan (530) - NORWAY - OCT 24, 2008
On tap at Bishops Arms, Karlstad. Deep brown, almost black color with a fingersized brown head. Aroma of espresso coffee, slightly of dark chocolate & roasted malt. Very nice actually... you can definitely think it’s coffee you’re smelling. Flavour is even better! Very nice coffee taste, with notes of bitter chocolate & liquorice. Ends bitter. Nice and filling in the palate, creamy, smooth and bitter. Overall, very nice... the best beer I’ve had from Nils Oscar!

Bottle from City Beer. Nice coffee aroma with only light grain. Flavor is initial vanilla, milk chocolate, coffee, grain, dark cocoa and smooth cream. Nice texture - very nice, in fact.

slakemythirst (189) - - DEC 6, 2011
Utsökta toner av jord/grus och utav sött hög aromatiskt kaffe består doften av. Dofterna följer med i mund och gom. Riktigt bra balans och kroppen är precis rätt. Men kunde den ha varit lite krämigare? Hur som helst, mumma!

Cybercat (3195) - Georgia, USA - JUN 16, 2009
Pours a dark sable-brown, almost opaque, with a thick and fairly persistent pale tan head. Aroma is rich and smoky with a strong overtone of fine roast coffee and hints of toffee and chocolate. Flavor fills the mouth with fine coffee that has a firm tone of unsweetened chocolate and hints of toffee and caramel with a good smoky overtone. Flavor is thick, smooth as glass, and just a little fizzy. Satisfying.
