4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Mikkeller Bar Viktoriagade pre-CBC. I can’t believe it’s not a ’coffee-added’-stout, this literally reeks of cold-press coffee. Some vanilla and chocolate (dark) aswell.

Hayish aroma with toffee. Also some acidic off-aroma. Flavour has dark chocolate, tobacco, some coffee and hints of ash. Good, although I expected more.Hides the ABV rather well, feels like 5-6% stout.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Rayans, with a 3/4/14 bottle date. Pours cola colored with an off-tan head leaving spots of lace. Aroma has chocolate and caramel, with chiles and coffee. Taste is of bakers chocolate, caramel, some roast and lightly spicy chiles. Full bodied and a bit hot. Finishes bittersweet with some length. Tasty, solid brew, with an interesting angle from the chiles. Wonder what some aging would have done.
