COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
bottle,regular
Straddling beer and coffee, this stylish libation is both Alpha and Omega. With a welcoming aroma created from double strength coffee beans, accompanied by a silky smooth texture and a rich dark nature, it is clear as a full moon why it was awarded gold at the 2012 World Beer Awards.

leaparsons (8019) - Leicester, Leicestershire, - SEP 16, 2012
Bottle. Black with a thin beige foam. Aromas are fruit cake with raisins and molasses and hazelnuts. Dark treacle with chocolate and smoky coffee. Some flowery notes with blackberry and dark cherries. Flavours are cheap chocolate with vinous notes and cola. Nutty with gritty coffee and an oily, slick palate. Has some cabbage aspects. Starts out well but falls flat in the end.

From a bottle. Pours like liquid chocolate, velvet mouth feel, coffee and dark chocolate bitterness. I liked it a lot.

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.

kerenmk (2270) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle. Black with a low cream-coloured head. Smells like an overly sweetened espresso, then mud and also a little musty. Tastes a little roasty, a little dry and mildly bitter. Full body, alcoholic finish and that sweetened coffee aftertaste.

DSG (5714) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 29, 2014
Bottle at the train station on the way to BG airport. Black with a tan head. Aroma of coffee, mocha, some chocolate and some liqueur-like booziness. Sweet flavor, coffee-ish, alcoholic, with some caramel and a hot boozy finish, a bit spicy and bitter. Medium-bodied. Interesting, but too sweet and boozy, especially for just 6%.
