Draught. Coffee aroma. Quite sweet, very clear fresh ground coffee flavour. Nice bitter coffee-like finish. Too sweet for a stout IMHO, but I love the coffeeness.

Black, thick head. Well-balanced, bitter flavour. Finsih is dominated by coffee grounds. Hard to tell if it the brewers used a quality coffee, it tastes like the left overs from the morning coffee, they claim they do did use some fine coffee though. However, it is an interesting brew that, I could imagine, changes a lot from time to time.

special bottling by the Danes for RBSG 04 and forwarded to me by Per (thanks !) - dark black colour, little creamy and bronw-tainted head, big bubbles and a superb lacing, strong and roasted mocha aroma with notes of black chocolate, sweet, medium to full-bodied, clean and round mouthfeel, bitter coffeish finish with notes of caramel - complex, very-balanced and deeply pleasant !

Tap@Nørrebro Bryghus. Lots of roasted coffee in here, lightly sweet, lightly coffee-style bitterness, reminded me of Dark Star Espresso Stout, but a little sweet and a little less complex. Nice and tasty though, a good alernative to a cup of coffee.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Black with a thick light brown head. It’s not unpleasant, but it’s boring for a sweet stout and a bit too dominated by the coffee.
