Shared bottle at local tasting. ABV is 7%. Dark brown colour, moderate beige head. Sorish and sharp aroma of lightly roasted coffee beans, some dusty, earthy and ashy notes. Very dry and ashy flavour first, not very good coffee, a little sweetness in the finish. Not my cup of tea / coffee / beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: Complex smell, cold old grounded coffee beans, ash tray, honey, chocolate and peas. First off-putting, then interesting ...
Appearance: A dark brown brew with hints of red, a tan high head, little lacing but good curtains.
Taste: Brown bread is predominant, then coffee, old cold coffee, milk chocolate.
Palate: Medium carbonation, small bubbles, oily and sticky, a good body.
Overall: Very much coffee, actually a bit too much.
Note: Bottle 330 ml at De Klomp tasting. Reviewed 2012-8-11.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is very nice. Pours dark brown with a creamy tan head. The aroma has a lot of coffee and some chocolate along with a bit of roast malt. The flavor is similar with coffee the dominant factor. Nicely balanced with a dry finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. Cloudy brown colour with huge, firm, frothy, well lacing, off-white head. Dark malty aroma with intense coffee and cappuccino notes in the background, a touch of roast. Taste is initially dark malty with intense, slightly sweet cappuccino notes, changing to more dry regions of the spectrum of coffee flavours. Lively carbonation interferes with the cappuccino notes in my opinion - maybe there’d be too much coffee if it didn’t.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. A clear, looking, reddish dark brown beer topped by a finger-thick, beige head. Lots of coffee on the nose, as well as lots of citrus-peelish, piney hops. Chocolate and some coffee grit too. Really wonderful. Unfortunately the flavor isn’t equally exellent, but it’s still really pleasant.. A good hoppy bitterness in the back, citrusy, piney hops and a fine coffee flavor, but not as intensely as the aroma. Lasting finish with bitterness, coffee and roasted malts. If the flavor only was as good as the aroma... 120804
