3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
0.33l pour from refrigerated bottled into a stemmed tulip glass. It took an aggressive pour to produce a moderate light-brown head, and that dissipated fairly quickly leaving only a trace of lacing. Swrirling consistently produced a smooth and attractive head though. The beer itself is dark brown and near-completely opaque. Nose has rich toasty malts, light coffee, and maybe some toffee sweetness. The body is full, but not super thick. On the drier side. The taste is great. Starts off with a sweet toffee front followed by chocolate and then delicious roasty coffee notes. It ends with a flavor of burnt malts, and while I’m normally not a fan of burnt-tasting beers, I can’t stop drinking this one. One of the best incorporations of well-roasted malts I’ve yet consumed. Very well done. Each drink begs for another.

Mahagony, ruby red-brown colour with a light beige pillowy head with good lacings. Aromas of mocha, milk-chocolate, lightly roasted coffee with hints of dried leather and sweet tobacco develop. Effervescent, slick lightly velvety texture, medium body. Malt accentuated center with a coffee-chocolate sweetness and a light roast bitterness. Light slick, medium finish.

Bottiglia da 33cl
Color bruno scuro,leggerissimi riflessi ambrato; schiuma color nocciola,pannosa,persistente. Al naso il caffè è molto pronunciato ma ben bilanciato subito da aromi di vaniglia, caramello, toffee e nocciola. In bocca è ancora esplosione di vari elementi:il caffè è ancora ben accompagnato da nocciola, toffee, e una leggera speziatura finale, prima dell’amaro leggermente erbaceo che va a chiudere benissimo bilanciando il tutto. Corpo e carbonazione medi. Ottima per struttura ed equilibrio, TOØL non si smentisce mai.

Bottle. A generous amount of citrusy and resiny hops does not deter from the fact that the malts play the main part in this beer. Caramel, hazelnuts and additionally coffee in the finish. Sweet, with a grapefruity bitterness. Rich, balanced and very well integrated. A great beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Koht (€ 4.20). BB 2017. Dark chestnut colour. Head’s very big and drops slowly, light beige, and leaves excellent lacing. On the nose it’s damn surprising... and not in a very good way - it’s sourish bitter grassy hop notes and malts, slightly lactic, and not much - if any! - coffee. Taste: roasted malts and rather strong hop bitterness, some red berry sourness and chocolaty notes. Not overly sweet, which I like. Thin carbonation, medium plus body, yet somehow feels thin. Nice velvety mouthfeel. It’s very nice but I can’t help but feel disappointed - there’s pretty much nothing that resembles or makes one think of coffee in this. In a blind tasting I’d probably consider it a pretty nice (close to something like a) BIPA.

Ne, sowas passt mir eigentlich so gut wie nie und bisweilen mag ich solche Geschichten überhaupt nicht. Nur Kaffee, Röstmalze und eine gewisse breiige Konsistenz nebst Bitterkeit und alten Mann im Abgang. Muss ich nicht nochmal haben.

Bottle from Rudat in Dortmund. The beer has got a deep dark brown colour with a low head and medium to smooth body. Aroma of coffee, malt and chocolate. Taste of roasted coffee beens, chocolate, malt, dark fruits and dark bread. Smooth and easy to drink with hints of nuts and cream. Enjoyed it a lot.
