Opaque black beer, short lived tan head. Nose of coffee and a kind of spicy bubblegun - a little like dentyne. Palate is slightly soft and just slightly dry. Taste follows the nose and then adds creamy malt and subtle wood. Medium sweet dark chocolate comes through. Coffee is quite mild. Sumptuos and tasty!

Leighton (18734) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2011
Bottle at home in London. Pours dark, ruby-brown with a medium, beige head. Aroma holds some lactic cocoa, roasted malts. Delicious and complex flavor. Medium to strong sweetness, plenty of rich coffee, dark chocolate, slightly tangy coffee grounds, burnt sugar. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Slightly chewy. Sweet, sticky, mildly warming finish. Prominent filter coffee character, moderate roasted malts, some chocolate syrup. A very interesting beer. Quite a lot going on here. Very good.

Koelschtrinker (17730) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - NOV 13, 2011
Intensiver Malzkaffee-Antrunk, der dazu noch sehr frisch daher kommt. Das Malz bleibt auf intensivem Niveau, dazu stößt eine angenehme Süße, die zum Ende aber ein wenig zu stark wird. Gelungener Gesamteindruck, süffig, der Alkhohol ist gut versteckt. Vollmundig, sehr gutes Stout. /14/12/13//13
