22 oz bottle into a Samuel Smith pint glass. A: Pours an ultra-dark brown color. The head is a two finger mocha shade featuring a nice texture and perhaps even nicer retention. Looks good in a glass, that’s for sure (especially the Samuel Smith pint glass, which almost seems tailor made for stouts). S: Wowee, this one is very forward in its mocha, chocolate, and roasted barley qualities. Oats are faintly notable, as well. I’m pretty impressed, actually. T/M: Dry, dry, dry. This opens dry/bitter, finishes dry/bitter, with seemingly no room for sweetness anywhere. There’s a slight ping of chocolate to start before coffee, roasted barley, and oatmeal all take over. I notice a dimension of piny hops on the back end, too that never overpower everything else. I reckon it’s a bit more airy-feeling than I like; I’d kill for a silkier texture, or maybe it’s just lower carbonation I’d kill for. The latter quality is the only thing that bugs me here - it allows it to come off as being too dry and even a bit rough at times. O: One has to love how drinkable this is. The lack of creamy softness is easy to overlook for this reason. I wouldn’t trade for it; but I would buy it again if I ever caught it in a store.

yngwie (16227) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 13, 2016
On tap at Både&. A dense finger thick dark beige head forms over a more or less black body. Nice curtains. Roasted, lightly burnt aroma with hints of charcoal and a good dash of dark chocolate and coffee. Lovely but a tad weak. More pronounced flavor, with roasted malts and a good dash of espresso and dark chocolate. Bready hints. Decent bitterness too. Lasting roasted, coffee-ish finish. Dry, nicely carbonated and smooth on the palate. A really fine one, well worth a revisit. 160213

thetmaxx (893) - West Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 23, 2016
Poured from the bottle from tavour. We’re on vacation and all the hotel room has is Styrofoam cups which makes this beer poor and appear like hot cocoa. However while the beer has notes of sweet chocolate there is a definite coffee flavor as well. Overall very good despite the strange situation I find myself in.

Rune (10502) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 19, 2015
Draught, guest ale served in a tulip glass at Cafe Fiasco. Filmy fawn-coloured head. Dotted spots on the glass. Deep devil-black body. Rich roasted black malty nose with liquorice to the fore. Blended taste of sweet chocolate and roasted, almost burnt coffee grounds. Prolonged finish. Medium bodied, smooth on the swallow. Tasty (Oslo 11.12.2015).
