3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
375 ml bottle. Pours pitch black with a big frothy head that fades normally. Aroma is sweet, creamy coffee with some light roast and chocolate. Taste is moderately sweet with a low bitterness. Lots of roasted coffee but doesn’t seem to have that great fresh coffee taste. Some light chocolate and licorice in the finish. A little boozy too. Medium to thick body and a creamy mouthfeel. Decent beer but a little too sugary sweet and not enough complexity.

17th February 2013
Opaque dark brown beer, good tan head. Palate is soft and dry. Rich earthy coffee with a tangy fruitiness. A little malt cream. Dry finish. Tasty but could do with having something else going on other than just coffee.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
New Beer Distributors, NYC 375ml ($9.25): Pours black with an immense creamy coffee foam coloured head. Aroma is a ton of coffee, with a slight boozy note; there are a lot of roasted malts notes, but of course. Taste hits hard right at the front, but mellows towards the back. You can feel this beer go inside of you all too well, if you know what I mean. The alcohol is noticeable and the aftertaste is formidable (lingering for quite a long time). Fortunately, not too sweet, but still sugary if you get my drift. Sticky, gooey, almost dirty. Less boozy than the aroma, but still noticeable. Pretty fierce. I actually liked this more than I thought I would, but the 375ml are plenty for me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with quickly settling light brown head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is coffee, heavily roasted malt, chocolate. Flavor is again heavy roast, dark chocolate, with a bitter coffee, chocolate finish. Soft carbonation, medium body, and smooth texture. Sweet, drinkable, and rich. Quite good. Had been putting off this purchase due to price, was good, though not sure it was worth the hype considering the abundance of good coffee beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Dark as night with a roasted, tanned looking head.
It simply smells up the room the second it’s cracked open. Coffee, chocolate, sugar. Really nicely balanced between bitter coffee notes and the sweeter components from the sugar and chocolate. Maybe some dark fruits as well. Smells great.
First thing that crosses your palate is huge chocolate and coffee. The coffee lies very nicely in the background throughout the entire taste. Salty licorice, roasted/burned malts, some soy sauce and/or green coffee bean especially in the aftertaste.
It totally covers your palate and mouth and has this great sticky, sugary feel on your lips. Full-bodied, however, not the biggest of the biggest. Nicely carbonated.
Great, great beer from To Øl , again‼! Not the best I’ve had from these guys but definitely a job more than well done!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at London Craft Beer Festival. Pours a dense black/brown. A big beer to be sure. Boozy, sweet with coffee, choc and licorice and a medicinal pepto bismol edge to it. It’s a bit meaty too. Good.
