4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. As usual with To Ol, it pours with massive, homogenous head, a bit beige, tasty looking. The beer is dark with some transparency. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, some sugar and definately a roasted note that’s on top of it. Some good coffee could have such scents. Taste is a bit different to it, with espresso bitterness being the most obvious but countered with some lactose sweetness. Overal, silky and creamy but more raw compared to, e.g. Stout. The aftertaste is bitter. Very well balanced beer. Again, a good stuff from To Ol.

Dark brown pour with a thick light brown head. Aroma is nutty, light coffee. Taste is coffee, lactose(in the finish), char. Roasted coffee in the aftertaste mostly. Coffee and brown ale go together well. Lactose adds a subtle touch. It would be a great breakfast drink. Great lacing.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bought from the local bottle shop. Not too overpowering, a nice subtle coffee taste, slightly sweet. Not too much of an aroma, but a nice beer that tastes better than it smells.
