Idiosynkrasie (6419) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 15, 2013
650ml bottle. Pitch black colour with huge, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, tan head. Dark malty aroma with a grainy touch, cocoa, chocolate, coffee, treacle, cautious hints of liquorice, soy sauce, basamico. Taste is moderately sweet dark malty, notes of cappuccino, grainy undertones, hints of treacle, later more dry notes with grainy coffee surrogate; constantly present subtle bitter hoppy addendum; soft and sticky palate, alleviating carbonation.

caesar (6644) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2013
Bottled @ Beer Temple. Dark color, short head. Aroma of loads of grinded coffee backed up with big roasted malt and chocolate, mocha. Not much licorice and laurel, which makes me happy, as I prefer the chocolate and roast based imperial stouts. Medium sweet, medium bitter, coffee makes it a bit more dry. Although it actually has quite a lot of coffee in the nose, maybe a bit too much, the base beer is able to carry that amount. So, the balance of the beer is very nice and the coffee adds depth to the base beer. Great stuff.

Torrefacto (1429) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 18, 2013
Color negro con reflejos caobas y espuma beige. Aromas de café, bizcocho y vainilla. En boca es sedosa con un inicio dulce y tostado que pasa a un amargor duradero pero suavizado. El regusto tiene un equilibrio excepcional de todos esos elementos. Excelente.
