COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Three thousand feet above sea level in the misty mountains of Jamaica, some of the worlds finest Arabica beans are hand picked on their way to becoming Blue Mountain Coffee. Halfway around the world, plump spring barley grows to maturity in the loamy soil of North America while aromatic hops are cutivated to exacting standards. Here in our kettles, these three special ingredients are blended to create a heady mixture of sweet sugar, dark roast, and complex flavor. Please enjoy this brew in moderation.

yespr (31061) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2008 holy of all mother, for a coffe lover like me this is fantastic, best of the evening, clearly knocked out three top 50 brews during the evening. 75 cL bottle, trade with ygtbsm94. Pours almost pitch black with dense chocolate brown head. Chocolate and coffee aroma, alcohol presence. Flavour is a lovely blend of coffee and a smooth chocolate, yet with a nice alcohol warmth. Very smooth and just keeps lingering. Fantastic, reminds me a lot of kaggen stormagtsporter! This is a top 50 brew in my book.

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2007
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a thin brown head. The aroma has strong notes of coffee and chocolate, but also light notes of alcohol. The flavor is sweet againg with strong notes of coffee, leading to a dry bitter roasted coffee end. The mouthfeel is a smooth alcoholic one, and the body is thick. Nice coffee beer.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2006
(Bottle 65 cl) Completely brown and opaque with a light brown head. Sweetish, burned aroma with some ashy touches. Extremely full-bodied, rich and sweet body. Tons of roasted malts with lightly burned accents. Fat and sweet finish with bitter, burned notes and an almost prune like character. Yummy - but in small doses only. 130806

Bottled (thanks PilsnerPeter!). Black colour with some rubyish hints. Aroma is coffee, hops, some chocolate and tobacco. Mild licorice too. Flavour is roasted coffee, burnt wood, ashes, tobacco and some slight notes of fruity hops. Very pleasant.

omhper (19333) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2006
[Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm] Pours thick pitch black without a trace of a head. Slivovic-like plum brandy aroma burning of alcohol. Veru sweet. Some coffee simmers in a sea of syrup and alcohol. The mouthfeel is cloyingly thick, and beneath lies some sharp malt. Achingly sugary finish with extreme amounts of alcohol coming through, despite the overly ramped up sweetness. The nice coffee flavour is the one redeeming feature in this concotion. Oh, and in what way is Jamaica halfway around the world from North America?

madmitch76 (14768) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2009
10th May 2008. Silky smooth stout with a mild carbonation. The coffee is beautifully integrated, smooth and never bitter but not wimpy either. There is an almost salty note running throughout nicely offset by creamyness. Semi dry finish. Excellent!
