3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 330ml bottle on 31/1/2013. Pours close to black with little head. Has a fabulously strong aroma of tiramisu, dripping with creamy coffee and chocolate. The tiramisu translates to the flavour, which is pleasant, but somehow doesn’t quite nail it. There’s lots of coffee and some chocolatey sweetness but it lacks a little on the roasty/bitter side of things. It’s a bit like a decent espresso that could be just a little bit stronger. Still, it’s interesting and the aroma is sublime.

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.

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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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%.
