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 (7923) - 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.

kerenmk (2162) - 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 (5614) - 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%.

Bottle. I’d seen this beer on supermarket shelves for a long time but never bothered with it until now. It basically tastes of coffee chocolates like you would get in a box of milk tray. Too sweet and too thin.

Bottled 04/01/14. A near black coloured beer with no head. More chocolate than coffee for me although both are there. A bit of vanilla too. Slick and very likeable. Good flavours. A tasty easy drinking beer.
