UPDATED: DEC 22, 2012 330ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallin) - shared by Ares, thanks!
Nice cocao mocha aroma. Same in the taste, more coffee than anything else. Smooth palate, but a little sticky. Chewy, even. Kinda ok, but not a great drink. Too sweet, and too much cocoa powder.

On tap at Euston Tap. Dark brown body with top head. Nose is coffee, malts, quite faint. Taste is roasty malts, caramel, sugar, sweet, lots of coffee in there. Bitter and spicy in the finish. Enjoyable for sure.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours pretty dark with a huge creamy head. Very little aroma. Taste is smooth, with a fair bit of hop bitterness for a dark beer. Not too sweet, but its there amongst the bitterness. Grainy coffee. Black pepper finish
Not too bad - was expecting something more creamy, but I’m pleasantly suprised with the hop notes. Very drinkable nevertheless.

The thin and oily mouthfeel put me off, what could have been an enjoyable roasty brown ale. The coffee roast is warm and inviting, with some nice vanilla accents, but it’s surfing on a body of nothing. Look forward to trying again should there be changes.

from Erzbierschof - very dark yet clear beer with a little persistent dark beige foam; solid and dry aroma of coffee; fairly hoppy; notes of pepper and tar; a good malt backbone, tasty, astringent and very bitter; pretty dry with a long coffeish aftertaste; long lasting with more notes of black pepper and prunes - accurate and very good
