COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
(...)this batch of Milk we added some house made Coffee extract too. We use some micro Roasted Costa Rican coffee beans from Buena Beans. We did a cold water extraction to leave behind the oils and acridness, but still have great flavor and aroma. the coffee is so great in this beer. You need to get in here for this one. 28IBU

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Cask at GBBF 2009, 4th Aug 09. Black with a line of bubbles. Soft aroma of vanilla and coffee. There’s a violet hint that reminded me of Brewdog’s Coffee Imperial Stout. Very refined silky palate. Best enjoyed slowly and deliberately but it’s light enough on alcohol that you can enjoy it in quantity. Great stuff.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 28, 2009
Black with a slightly acetone nose containing some damp coffee and cream. No fizz here at all. I’m not too keen on the initial taste (iron and cheap white wine) but the finish is long and divine.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2009
A Mes rate. Gravicask at GBBF.
Jet black with no head. Excellent aroma. Lashings of fruit, lots of coffee plus some plum and chocolate. The flavour is even better. Huge black malt hits first followed by rich rich chocolate, amazing coffee and glorious boozy notes. Stunning chalky casky finish with so much character and balance. Absolutely fantastic. Even Tom liked it!

At GBBF 2009. Black, no head. Definite American hop on aroma. Strong roasted mlat aroma. It’s a decent roasted stout. Very prickly on tongue, quite dry. Almost slightly minty on finish. Not very milky, good though

Rune (7760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2009
Pitch black body with a shinning surface. Sweet aroma of dark malts. Taste of liquorice added by lactose and ending with coffee bitterness. Medium bodied. Pleasing, but maybe a bit too sweet. Third-pint served from gravity dispense at the GBBF, 04.08.2009.
