3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2015 0.33 bottle. Very dark brown color and a small, beige head which leaves a thick lacing. Very coffee-like aroma, some real vanilla, dark malts, some meat, and marzipan. The aroma of coffee is so distinctive that if I knew anything about coffee I would be able to distinguish the type. Taste is very malty, again coffee, delicate roast, but also some hop bitterness. Medium to full body, creamy texture, and average carbonation. Finish is delicate, relatively speaking of course, less imposing. Overall the beer is good quality-wise but I am not a big fan of coffee brews.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 33cl. Pitch black with a small brown head. Due to it’s thick viscosity it was difficult to generate any head. Strong coffee notes in the nose. Very nice rich beer. Great body where the malt is nicely balanced with the bitter hops. Long finish.
