Inbreak (4259) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2016
05.05.2016, 0,5l bottle (as 3,8%) @ home:
Nice light brown creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly rich and dry roasted, espresso, dark malts, minerals, lactose, nuts, caramel, chocolate, mild grassy smoked chillies, hops. Taste is dry roasted, weeds, roasted grain, minerals, mild espresso, grass, hops, lactose, burnt caramel, cocoa, mild grassy chillies. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mineraly mouthfeel. The first sip is very burnt and dry mineraly. But the taste kind if grows on you, so it ends up pretty nice, specifically for the low ABV. Still, it could have been pretty amazing if the taste had lived up to the lovely aroma.

sebletitje (9026) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 2, 2016
Draft @ Tilquin English Fest ’16, day2. Brune foncée, col fin blanc-cassé, presque léger moka. Arôme au nez fin grillé et toasté offrant de très fines et complexes effluves de café. Le rétro lactose est modéré et accompagne très bien le café sans devenir trop dominant. Palais est léger, finement grillé, café onctueux à souhait avec un côté lactose qui joue presque le rôle de crème de café sans pour cela devenir trop sucré et encombrant au niveau douceur comme c’est souvent le cas avec des milk stouts. Fini amertume noble accompagne chaque gorgée avec un café qui est vraiment bien exploité.

Maersk (128) - MOLDOVA - APR 25, 2016
Small but thick coffee head. Dark brown (almost black). Smells cheap instant coffee, fresh coffee beans, green peas and celery. Taste vegetables with a hont of roast. Body is medium.

I_LUV_BEER (140) - - APR 17, 2016
All that I can say is just "WOW"!!! Absolutely gorgeous and wonderful! Served in a snifter from a bottle. Pours almost black with a little beige head. The aroma is just an amazing mixture of roasted coffee, caramel, roasted malts and a pinch of hops. The taste is a great combination of coffee, burnt sugar and raisins. The mouthfeel is rich and full bodied, smooth with a wonderful slight bitter aftertaste. Absolutely fantastic!!!
