3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
As soon as the bottle was opened a good whiff of coffee and dark chocolate ganache was released. It poured very dark and opaque. In the glass, more chocolate sweetness came out in the aroma but there’s a tiny hint of something else – something slightly artificial like pots of ‘non-diary creamer’. The taste was disappointing compared to the initial aromas, a little thin and watery, but at least no bitter unpleasantness. It was smooth enough but just not much depth, body or finish.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - black with a fizzy dark brown head which quickly fades to a ring. Aroma of praline, chocolate, rich ground coffee, cocoa and cream. Taste of coffee, cream and chocolate. Very rich and velvety. Like an Irish coffee. Rich, medium body with low carbonation, very sweet. Gets a bit sickly after a while.

Phwooooarrr! Bottle from Beers 52.
Though Coffee in terms of strength of flavour this gives Sam Smith’s Chocolate Stout a run for it’s money!
On the nose is coffee with a touch of sweetness (similar to what you get in a coffee shop expresso). Then the taste you get this coffee again with the sweetness following, perhaps a marshmallow taste in there? Then some fruity flavours, I got orange and then typical winter fruits. Lovely stuff!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance is thick black with a tan head. The aroma is of coffee and sweetness. The flavour is dominated by coffee and a sweetness also. This beer has a long finish of coffee but bitterness now. Smooth and slightly creamy on the palate with light carbonation.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from a Glasgow ASDA. Pours black with a fading tan head. The taste is sweet with coffee, chocolate and lots of vanilla. Some citrus sharpness to it as well. Tastes artificial somehow. I love a coffee stout but this one was pretty poor.

Es una cerveza de color negro profundo con una espuma de color beige.
Aroma de café tostado y de chocolate oscuro.
Sabor dulce y bastante seco con un amargor medio.
Cerveza interesante, vale la pena de probarla, si te gusta el café.

Shockingly different. I’m still on a caffeine high. Beer is not meant to be like this. I always decline an after dinner coffee, but no longer! The velvety malt that slides in, the chocolate, the silk of the barley. This could become my new addiction - Red Bull step aside.

Not a barrister so I can't really rate it like it should be rated, but **** it's a beautiful beer (if you could call it that). It tastes like a fermented alcoholic cool light espresso. I'm gonna try get this one past the alcohol rules at work.
