2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Systembolaget, bought March 2012. Had one then and one now, very similar although it´s been sitting in the basement for a year. Pours dark brown/black, head is pale. The aroma is abundant with coffe and a touch of vanilla, hard roasted like. The mouthfeel is dissapointing, very thin, annoyingly intesive carbonation. Cold coffe comes to mind.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Opaque black liquid with medium light tan head. Aroma of dried fruit, spicy coffee, green bell pepper, toffee, caramel, chocolate, bread and light vanilla. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with notes of coffee, vanilla, toffee and bell pepper. Light to medium bodied with low to medium carbonation. OK, but a bit thin and weird coffee notes (bell pepper).

It poured a dark black color with a brown head. The aroma was rich of coffee, roasted malts and cocoa. It had a full body, rich and creamy with nice carbonation. The taste was lots of burnt malt and coffee that finished strong with cocoa. Very nice.

@eddan: doftar oskördat kaffe eller kaffeblomma. Mycket kaffe i smaken men lite tunn vätska. Kanske aning choklad. Lite för snäll.

60 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 06.04.2009
Aroma has espresso(!), well roasted malt and some dark chocolate. Flavour is rather high on espresso. Also some dark chocolate, licorice and hints of herbs. Delicious beer for coffee lovers like me. Would be even better if the palate hadn’t been a bit watery.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
50cl bottle (four months past the best before date). Aroma of malt and coffee. Pours a very deep red with a small and quickly dissipating beige head and very little lacing. Tastes are roasted malt, chocolate, lots of coffee and a bit of vanilla. Medium body and a sweet taste makes this one a treat.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Backlog rating 12-04-2008. This bottled beer pours a very fizzy small tan head that quickly dissipated. The body is opaque, no lacing and the hue is black. The aroma is coffee, roasty, and malty. The flavor is semi-sweet, coffee, roasty, and malty. The palate is slick and this is a medium bodied sweet stout. Overall, I would have rated the flavor higher, but the flavor seemed to be off kilter and weak for the style. Other than that, I would recommend this beer.
