3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brought the 1.5L "Hans Across the Water" version to my parents for Christmas, was a big hit with every one. Big bold dark brown body with large hard to control crown....the pour took forever. Aroma was mildish but descent, roasted malts with sweet coffee, hints of vanilla........or is the beer description screwing with my mind........man did I ever take piss poor notes on this beer. Seriously I’ll have written down five times is coffee, sweet, and roasted malts....I was sober to.....kids running around every where. I did truly enjoy this beer, wish I took better notes I trust my number though.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
At a tasting, thanks, smallish head, quite opaque dark brown color, aroma of coffee with vanila, dark bread and a hint of hay, flavor of coffee with earthiness and some dark chocolate, quite strong but also quite mellow bitterness, greenish hint at the end that blends in and doesn’t distract. Balanced and highly enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
I was hoping for a but more smooth coffee and vanilla flavor in this beer. Dark brown/black brew with light brown head. Not much but some coffee aroma. Quite a bit bitterness and not much sweetness. Ok taste but doesn’t have a great finish I think. I don’t taste the vanilla much. A light palate considering the beer type.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Piana drobna, beżowa, ładnie koronkuje.
W aromacie ciemne słody, lekko kwaskowe. Po ogrzaniu pojawia się lekki aromat wanilii. Jest też likierowa słodycz. Wyczuwalny alkohol.
W smaku wyraźna goryczka, paloność. Nuty kawowe i czekoladowe.
Wyraźne chmiele, ale dobrze się komponują.
W drugiej nucie wyraźne grzanie od alkoholu - trochę nieułożone.
Posmak pralinek, niezbyt słodkie.
Daje lekkie odczucie słone.
