Pours luscious coffee brown with a thick tan head. Roast quality coffee component of the aroma reaches out and touches you from half a meter away; as you close in, roast malt and semi-sweet chocolate hints make themselves known. Bold, smoky notes dominate the coffee and malt flavor, while earthy, chocolate and subtle nutty tones provide support. Texture is fairly firm but quite fizzy. Almost like a good stout mixed with an offering from Caribou Coffee. Them Italians know how to brew good beer! oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 28, 2014
Bottled. Very close to black colour with a small but longlasting beige head. Aroma is chocolate, mild toasted notes along with toffee and coffee. Flavou ris coffee, chocolate, mild tobacco and some roasted notes. Balanced and quite pleasant. rouhlas (3665) - GREECE - NOV 18, 2014
From tap at Open Baladin, Rome. Dark brown almost black color with beige head. Roasted malty, "watery" aroma, chocolate and light smoke. Sweet and light bitter taste, like the aroma, chocolate and smokey. Light to medium, thin body, flat to soft carbonation. jookos (6908) - FINLAND - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle. Black, low fizz. Intensive clean coffee beans on nose, some chocolate, woodsy notes. Surprisingly thin body, feels almost watery. Dry, medium bitter. Loads of roastedness, coffee here. Really liked the aroma, but the body was dissapointing. Really flavourful though. Ragnampiza (751) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - JUL 11, 2014
330 ml bottle from Domus Birrae. Dark brown, black looking in the glass, with a small, frothy, non persistent beige head. On the nose roasted malts, some light vanilla, milk chocolate, definitely some coffee too, but not as intense as expected. Much better in the mouth: solid bitterness upfront, relatively hoppy (herbal/grassy), plenty of coffee and chocolate notes, roasted and toasted, slightly sweet in the end. Sugary asftertaste. Very easy to drink, totally sessionable. Average carbonation, medium body, slightly oily texture. Nice.

Bottle 33 cl. Pours black with a tan head and an aroma of espresso, pure cholate and roasted malts. The taste is roasty with some complex coffee and cacao notes. A really nice stout.

Deep brown body and stable tan head. Instant coffee, mocha, bit toasty and developed yeast. Quite rich taste for the abv, with tasty roasted malts and sufficient bitterness. Well made, balanced even yet full of flavour. Yum, I like it a lot. (Fancy bottle from SpeciaalBierPakket) androman (2635) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2014
33cl bottle @ home. Dark brown color, medium but long lasting creamy brownish head. Aroma coffee, smoke, honey, licorice, dark chocolate, smoke again, roasty, well balanced and moderated. Taste medium to very bitter with a very light sweetness. Full body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, medium bitter finish. Fine dessert beer, quite easy to drink compared to other stouts. bhensonb (15505) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 31, 2014
