4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Purchased at Ølbutikken in Copenhagen, DK, enjoyed on my last day in this lovely city from my hotel room. Appearance is pitch black, moderate consistency, rich light tan head that nicely laces to the glass. Aroma is rich in coffee and vanilla, with additional chocolate notes. Taste is pretty nice, really curious about this 10% ABV because it doesn’t feel like such a strong ale.

I really love vanilla. I really do. This one has a lot of it. And that is really good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Ølbaren, Copenhagen. Black with a ring of tan head. Mostly coffee on the nose. Taste is roasted malt moving into a vanilla sweetnesss, followed by a truckload of coffee. Bit of liquorice too. Slightly oily mouthfeel. I’m not always a fan of coffee in beer and I found the coffee too harsh at first, but I did start to enjoy it towards the end.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This looks bit like irish coffee which is not bad. Eben black with creamy dessert foam on top leaving good lacing. Aroma is bittersweet with good roasted malt, roasted marinated fruits, licorice and bit seasalt. Smells good! Medium body, light feel, soft carbonation, lots of good quality coffee roasted just right to my taste, long finish, bit fruits here also. Nuanced and tasty. Really nice coffee flavor. One to savour in peace, enjoying all nuances. If you don’t like coffee you propably won’t enjoy this either but if you do..this will be be your date of choice.
