330ml bottle @ Maunula beer tasting. Thanks Mikko! Bottle from Systembolaget.

Black outfit with small circle brown foam. Aroma of strong cold coffee. Taste of burned coffee beans and ash. Good one for this ABV but 330ml bottle for 3persons is good enough.

Bottle shared in SF - many thanks to big Vik. Pours deep brown with a foamy off-white head. The nose holds hard ashy roast, baking cocoa, burnt wood. Heavy sweet flavor, lots of thick ashy roasted malts, bitter chocolate, scorched earth. Full bodied, chewy, with fine carbonation. Cloying sweetness in the finish, more harsh ash, sugary chocolate, dark fruits. Novel, but only enjoyable in small doses.

Nose is moderately peppery like green peppers. Light alcohol you. Taste is a decadent thicki viscous velvet and chocolate

12oz bottle at my parents place in NYC after flying all day back from Stockholm. Its alright. Coffee tastes a little synthetic, and the malt notes are flat.

33cl bottle (2013), served in Snifter. Pours black with small tan head. Aroma is coffee, dark chocolate and biscuit. Taste is the same with honey added. Actually the honey seems to balance the huge amounts of coffee (and the same works the other way around). Moderately bitter and the alcohol heat it isn’t too strong for a 17.5% beer. Mouthfeel is full, soft carbonation. Very pleasant.

Gerbeer (2693) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 6, 2015
330 ml bottle. Pours black with very little head. Aromas of fresh black coffee, ash, molasses and alcohol. Flavors of kahlua, vanilla extract, burnt malts and alcohol. Good but a bit of a burn.

Backlogging, notes from memory. One and a half year old bottle. Poured into my favorite snifter. Dark almost black colour with no head whatsoever. Consistency like soy sauce. Holy hell that aroma! Huge coffee smell, freshly ground coffeebeans, burnt notes, the alchohol is quite noticeable, sweet syrup/honey. Flavour is right up there with the nose, big coffee, dark chocolate, cocolate cake, floral honey notes. The alcohol is showing through but not as much as I would have though for 17,5 abv. Very sticky velvety mouthfeel. I for one thoroughly enjoyed this one, though it certainly isn’t for everyone.

Thanks to Plovmand. Cheers Tom! Opaque dark brown beer, small tan head. Palate is viscous and dry. Modest fine carbonation. Strong earthy coffee, very strong espresso. Tangy coffee. Dry earthy coffee finish, coffee lingers on. Pretty full on! An experience!

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2014 33cl bottle, batch nov 2013. Fizzy foamhead like the Honey Badger, vanished instantly. What an explosion of aromas! Now this is some real deal coffee! Fermented honey, dates, alcohol intertwined with a rich collection of different coffee beans, licorice and sticky as pine tar. The coffee bean aroma is just amazing, wanna smell this forever! Next to the espresso-ish experience, the high alcohol fumes when sniffed are astonishing... Lovely meady siropy character. Highly underrated beer people, although this is for a small niche of tasters and palates. The 17,5 ABV doesn’t feel as high as one would suspect. Top notch coffee aromas, sticky as thick sirup and so wonderfully full bodied. Would love a crate of this beer. I’m a tad to late I presume?.. Top quality beer brewed with heart!
