Cask @ London Drinker Beer Festival 2014, Kings Cross. Wow definitely not a beer for me. Smells like coffee dregs and tastes like a cold cup of coffee that’s been left on the windowsill outside for a couple of nights. Summer Wine have been pretty faultless up til now, and the Mokko milk stout was excellent but i’m sorry, this was a definite sink pour.

as the name suggests, this is a stout for coffee lovers. dry, with a great medium-roasted coffee hint and a sour aftertaste. thank god it’s not sweet. body is rather thin, but the ABV speaks for itself; this however makes this beer more drinkable.
coffee, roasty, earthy, black, minimal head, light-brown foam, lightly bitter, lightly sour, light body, thin feel,

Coffee everywhere: aroma, taste, aftertaste. Quite a light body, but not in a bad way. Just very drinkable for a stout. Some milkiness, and unbelievable roast coffee-ness. The espresso theme taken well beyond its logical conclusion into the realm of slight craziness. A lot of fun - a bottle I’d buy again for sure.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma e gusto concordano senza discutere sottomentendosi alla dispotica dittatura del caffè. Caffé puro, senza compromessi, che rende irrilevanti i sentori tostati e le note leggere di cioccolato. Appagante ed estrema. Resistete alla tentazione di accompagnarla con latte e biscotti.

On tap at CASK Pimlico.
Very inviting coffee aroma. Cold coffee, bitter, at the same time milky sweet. Cola color. Not convinced.
