4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2010 Wow this hits me like a bull. An intense hit of black coffee. Just a bomb of mocha! This is mesmerising. Poured at home from bottle into ESB glass. Lovely thick dark head. Jet black tar texture of the beer. Aroma is bloody awesome. As a coffee man this just has to be an ideal wake up call.
Tastes of rich dark chocolate; coffee, roasted malts, old dried fruits and oak. This is stunning. I’m loving every sip. Carlo and Urbain are master craftsmen and this is a monet on my pallet. Awesome. Stunning. Bought from Alvinne beer shop at PRE-ZBF. Thanks for sharing the wealth! WOW. This is just insane.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen. The pour is potent like hell. Fluffy dark brown head that stays forever. The body is black black black. Good looking. The nose is most of all bitter roasted with hints of chocolate and not much but a little coffee. the taste is rich and actually a bit fruity with the hard rosted flavours a little behind at first but later totaly in front hand in hand with alcohol. Strange off flavour that I can’t define. Agressive and masculin beer. Nice smooth mouthfeel.

Do i have to say, that it pours somewhat black, with a good, big and foamy nut-brown head. (?)
Aroma is heavy with mocha. mmhh. Will start to drink this in the morning instead of my cops of coffee...
Vanilla and chocolate is also big in the aroma. more suttle is burned/dark caramel, brown sgugar and wood. Really nice dry finish of oak. Hmm... Light dirt??
Body is medium, with a nice carbonation to it..

HMOG 2014. Boozy earthy scent. They weren’t kidding when they called this a mocha bomb. Chocolate is all over the flavor with a lively candy spice. Pours dark brown and a tan head.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle @ Molenhof, next to the Struise brewery. Pours clean perfect black, with a bubbly beige/brown head. Small head. Incredible mocha & coffee aroma, burnt / roasted aroma, but subtle. Palate is slicky, not sticky. Taste balanced roast/bitter, some residual sweetness. Overall top class brew.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours in ultimately dark body with creamy beige head. Aroma is smoky, sweet of candy sugar and licorice, almost like wood ashes, loaded with coffee. Taste is bitter in front with sweet tail at the end, complex flavours are little bit masques by the bitterness, sadly. Body is full, creamy, well carbonation. Great beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A coffee bean flavour dominates this beer, with traces of whisky and chocolate. Got a little too one-dimensional to be a great impy. Not a trace of those 12 % though.
