Draft @ Borefts Festival 2011, Bodegraven NL. Hazy, light brown colour with a strong off-white head. Smells a bit like faeces (just slightly and not as disturbing as it sounds), hoppy and lemongrass. Tastes biter, hoppy and fruity. Good carbo, bitter and full body.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap @ Borefts Beer Festival. Pours black with a nice light brown head. Aroma is full throttle coffee, but not bitter coffee - it’s very fruity and mellow and reminds of black currants or black berries. It also has lush chocolate, vanilla elements, hints of roast. It actually smells creamy, ain’t that sumpin’? Taste is very creamy, coffee, dark berries, chocolate, lots of sweetness but also some hoppy bitterness and coffee taste to keep up with the sweetness. I have to say Nate, this is your masterpiece! The festival’s best beer for me.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the Boreft Beer Festival, De Molen, Bodegraven, Netherlands 24.09.11 Pours black with next to no head save for a few stray bubbles, however the head may of departed by the time I got this back to the table. This really reminds me of the Beer Geek Breakfast, its that good, soft, smooth, indulgent, actually looking at Craigs beer I can see that the head is light beige. Loads of smooth cappucino coffee, lovely beer. A7 A4 T9 P4 Ov17 4.1

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at BBF. Black. No head, hence no lacing. Dry roasted coffee aroma and flavor. Astringent, but not overwhelmingly so. Hints of dry chocolate. Pretty good. It was a little bit too much on the flat side. At least he tried to get a head on it by swirling it way too hard and long pouring.
