3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 cl bottle @ Timo A, BBE 01.12.2012
Flavour is slightly sour with coffee, some oaty notes and dark chocolate. Flavour has coffee, some jalopeno‐like vegetables typical to coffee beers, mocha and dark chocolate. Palate is too foamy. I like the coffee notes here.

330 ml. no bottling date evident. Deep brown-black body sustains a creamy thin disc of foam. Aroma is dark bread, chocolate, caramel and coffee. flavors of caramel cola, coffee and toast. Finish has a cocoa touch that develops some char, blackberry and espresso in the long aftertaste. Well balanced, light-medium body is watery and soft with low carbonation

I didn’t like this one at all, then again; I mostly don’t like anything with coffee flavor except coffee.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
DLUO dépassée d’un an. Brune sombre, limite noire, quasi pas de mousse. Nez de café et de pain grillé. En bouche le café et le malt grillé dominent, mais quelques notes de cerises et d’abricots. Le corps est léger et la longueur assez bonne, l’amertume est modérée. Belle bière, côté café très présent (c’est manifestemment ce qui est voulu), mais la bière reste bien équilibrée.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pitch black with a small cream coloured ring of lacing. Aroma is bursting with coffee and tobacco with some malts and brown sugar. The flavour is nice with a lot of coffee bitterness, almost like you’re drinking cold coffee, not as good as the aroma promises but still a very nice flavour. The mouthfeel/palate is unfortunately a bit of a disappointment as it is very watery.

Brown color with tan head. Tobacco, coffee, chocolate, red wine, fruity. Nice low-carbonated ticklish mouthfeel. Absolutely beautiful and fruity for a coffee beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black, no head. Smells like red wine and coffee, big surprise. Taste is pretty much the same - red wine and smooth coffee flavors. Nicely rich, too. I liked it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle with the expiration date of december 2013. Bit in doubts about how it was stored, however it poured out very well in the glass. Black like a bulls ass with a quick disappearing off-white head. Some lacing visible. So, nothing to complain yet. Quite good. Strong coffee aroma with clear amaretto notes escape from the bottle with a powerful kick. Nutty as well, some burned brown sugars, caramel and dark chocolate. Good one. Taste is much in line with its aroma. Yet, it taste less sweet than it smells. Good coffee flavor with soft sweet notes of the sugar, nuts and the chocolate in the beginning. Nice soft roastiness as well in the middle with a bit of a smokey kick, evolving to a soft bitterish, somewhat tarty (and thus a bit disappointing) end. Not bad, but I have had better coffee-based beers. Texture is a bit oily, medium bodied with still a quite lively carbonation. In general I am somewhat surprised about this brew. It is pretty well brewed, yet it has some of it misses and is not that refined.
Needs a rerate with another bottle asap.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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!
