2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pros: Not light struck. Cool Design. Lots of taste for a 5% beer.
Cons: Brashly hoppy upon tasting. Overly bitter and burnt. Not a lot of body or nuance. Aroma is fairly muted. Short finish. Out of balance for my tastes.

Draught at Mikkeller, Black sensation. Smell is light and has some malts, coffee and caramel. Pours dark brown with a small beige head. Taste has some subtle malts and some chocolate and is quiet fresh. Thin palate. Overall a decent beer though a bit too thin.

Pour from a can is a nice dark rich brown similar to coffee. Aroma is straight from a fresh pot of regular coffee. Taste is a little bitter like black coffee but goes down smooth. Leaves a clean after taste.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from can into shaker. Translucent brown with frothy off-white head. Smell is like coffee grounds. Taste is almost all brewed coffee, with a little bit of hops and beer taste lingering in the background. Feel is a little thin, but smooth, like coffee, so appropriate. Overall, a cool, interesting beer. It REALLY tastes like coffee, which is kind of incredible. Couldn’t drink it all day (probably not intended for that), but I’m really enjoying it.

From can. Pours dark brown with a creamy, light brown head. Aroma has coffee... and that’s pretty much it! Light roasted, fruity, smooth coffee, coffee berries. Taste is smooth, roasted coffee, a hint of roasted malts, more coffee. A slight caramel, but not very sweet. Slightly watery body, but overall really nice beer!

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Pours clear brown reddish, with minimal light brown head. Aroma is loads of coffee. Fresh green coffee, fresh grounded coffee, roast and some coffee berries. Taste is medium sweet and roasty dry coffee. Long dry finish and thin body. Clean coffee. Nice coffee beer!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can 50cl. Dark clear brown, small tan head. Aroma of fresh pre-roasted coffee beans and not much else; some fruits and berries and a faint hint of chocolate. Taste is light on the tongue, but quite delicate; also one-dimensional and lacking the thick bitter body of most coffee beers. Fresh and easy to drink.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
one dimensional for sure, but MAN is it a tasty dimension. all iced coffee. the nose, the flavor, even the feel. thin, but smooth. dark brown with a red tinge in light. covers up the original beer pretty well, which is both good and bad. if you’re not a coffee person, you’d hate this. it’s the most straight up coffee like beer i’ve ever had, and not a whole lot else."

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy dark brown with a beautiful light tan head. It smells like a used coffee filter. Taste is the same, used coffee filter, lots of coffee and kindda earthy. Medium bitter with earthy palate. Medium body. average carbonation and a long coffee aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can at home. Pour is deep town with a big tan head and good lacing. Huge coffee, malty, caramel, some cookie malt, light pepper and cocoa in the aroma. Taste is big coffee, some roast, graham crackers, caramel, toast, brown sugar, and bread. Medium body with soft carbonation. Tasty, but could truly benefit from a heavier body and a touch more cocoa.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2014 A dark red beer with a small tan head. The aroma is pure roasted coffee. The flavor is also dominated by coffee. It’s basically a cold cup of coffee at 8%.
