Thanks to my buddy Rainer for the bottle! Pours a super dark black/ brown with a loose tan head. The noise is immediate big coffee, roasted malt. The taste is black coffee, roasted malt, licorice, mild fruit background ending bitter. The body is light with pretty carbonation being fine and gentle. A ton of flavor especially when considering the ABV!

Thanks to ThirstyBird for sharing. Batch No 0035. Bottled on Oct-13. Best before Oct-14
Dark in the glass with and intense malty-dry nose. The beer starts very intense: Roasted and coffee. The mainpart is very dry, even a bit dusty. Highly roasted with lots of coffee. The aftertaste is long, intense. Viscous, coffee, hints of sourness.
A very great beer - especially for the 3.7% extremely flavourful! --> 13/12/13/13

Bottle. Aroma roasted coffee, chocolate. Taste: coffee is not overwhelming other flavour. I can feel some chocolate, praline-like flavours. Could have a bit more body. I like the balance between the bitterness and sweetness.

Bottle at Googies Folkestone. Black beer lasting tan head. Chocolate dark chocolate and some spiciness on the aroma. It’s a slightly harsh milk stout with lots of coffee. Wow stunning. Not too much lactuc but it is there. I don’t normally like milk stout but this is good. It’s good. Some bitterness on the finish. Excellent. Given I don’t like the style. Lactose increases as it warms up. Still for a style that normally makes me retch this is good.

Bottle at Kirjakauppa.
Pitch black color, tiny off-white head. Aroma has toasted maltyness and coffee. Light-bodied. Espresso, toasted malty flavor. Nice and balanced but way too watery for my liking.

Cask, 4.5%, black with a lasting coarse ivory head, aromas of roast coffee and dark chocolate, creamy mouthfeel and initial sweetness give way to toasted malt and coffee flavours, with earthy hops and faint red fruit in the background. Cocoa and soft bitterness in the finish.
