I canít remember for sure where I tried this but I think it was on tap at OíConnors in Uppsala. Smell of coffee, chocolate, dark bread and some roasted notes. Similar taste. Roasted bitter taste but also creamy.

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

Przyjemne, lekkie piwo o delikatnym kawowym aromacie. W smaku wyrazista kawa z odrobin? s?odyczy i deliktn? palono?ci?. Ca?o?? lekka i wybitnie pijalna.

Cask conditioned at The Famous Royal Navy Volunteer, Bristol. Black with tan head. Full, richly roasted malts there is a coffee background, liquorice then a sweeter blackberry flavour. Lasting on the palate. Really rather pleasant.

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. Itís a slightly harsh milk stout with lots of coffee. Wow stunning. Not too much lactuc but it is there. I donít normally like milk stout but this is good. Itís good. Some bitterness on the finish. Excellent. Given I donít 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.
