3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber bought @ bierkompass.de. Pours brownish black with a rather small frothy and fizzy mocha head that quickly dissipates without leaving much trace on the glass. Smell is sweet with roasted malts, lots of sweetened dark roast coffee, vanilla beans, dark chocolate, charred wood, burnt cookies, hay and hints of green chili and alcohol. Taste is sweet and bitter with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, bitter chocolate, sweet liquorice candy, burnt cookies, alcohol, charred wood, vanilla essence, soy sauce and hints of green chili. Mouthfeel is soft, slightly oily, round, roasted astringent and medium bodied. Finish is bitter with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, bitter chocolate, charred wood, burnt cookies and hints of green chili and soy sauce. Good but a bit unbalanced...

Sampled at esbls. Very dark red brown. Almost no head. A nose of coffee and a bit of ash. First sip is kind of freezer burn. Malta are huge but the coffee has faded some. It is surprisingly bitter. Background fruit.

Bottle shared at the Tampa Tasting, poured a dark black color with aromas of fresh pressed coffee, light roast, some light hops and some earth. Flavors are the same, mostly black coffee, light bitterness and roast in the aftertaste. Pretty amazed at this beer for such a high abv, didn’t taste like it, a great beer.
