Woow! On bottle, 75cl. Light, drinkable and absolutely not nasty as you drink. Fabulous, because it’s a great blend of cocoa and coffee. Very noticeable each one of those two tastes, but it’s not nasty at the same time. Lack of froth with a medium low carbonation. Great job!
By the way, on the bottle it’s indicated as Alc. 4.5% Vol, not 7.5% as reported in the beer description here reported. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 25, 2011

Aroma has a strong coffee overtone and hints of malt and fruit. It pours an opaque coffee brown with a fairly thick, if not persistent, light tan head. The sample I got fizzed like crazy, so open with care! Coffee dominates the flavor, which has malty and apple notes. Texture has average body and only a little fizziness. Not the best I’ve had, but worthy. italianjohn (3259) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2011
Murky brown pour with fizzy off white head ... aroma of coffee beans and chocolate .... taste is of roasted coffee and chocolate with a decent amount of caramel malt ... was very overcarbonated and too fizzy in the mouthfeel ... dry roasted finish .... the overcarbonation ruined this brew madmitch76 (25568) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2011

Scopeys East Croydon tasting - Cheers Paul! Cloudy dark brown beer. Small tan head. Light thin palate. Slightly sour dark malt that tastes a little oxidised. Just a little mild coffee. Finishes semi dry. An okay beer but pretty dissapointing in the context of the brewer.
Bottle at my East Croydon beer tasting, thanks to madmitch76. It pours muddy brown, with a thin, foamy beige head and very low carbonation. The nose is coffee, milk chocolate, polish and brown sugar. The flavour is weak coffee, milk chocolate, sweet lactose, roasted malt and well hidden alcohol, with some light bitterness in the finish. It is quite weak and thin in the mouth. Almost, but not quite.... Leighton (22327) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2011
Bottle at the East Croydon Beer Tasting. K-Dog comin’ through! Pours foggy brown with a foamy, off-white head. Aroma holds raw, sharp ground coffee with just hints of dark malts. Flavor is pretty sweet, thankfully, standing up to what is a rich coffee character. Some sweet, roasted malts and mild bitterness. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Finishes with mild warmth, balanced coffee and burnt malts. A fairly delicious beer. emacgee (4705) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 8, 2011
Pours a ruby copper brown with one finger of frothy light tan head. Weak nose, papery with some day old coffee and fruity notes. Mildly cidery notes with some spice. Awful flavor, some coffee. Just awful. TURDFERGUSON (4068) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Shared by emacgee. Dark amber with small white head. Nose is light coffee, sour cocoa, paint thinner, light hops. Thin mouthfeel and watery coffee flavor, with some light tartness. Weird. danielcurtis81 (1519) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 13, 2011
Served from a 0.33 L bottle from The Liquor Collection thanks to Ryan. The appearance is a medium coffee brown with a fading light brown head. The aromas are light in intensity with some sweet malt characteristics. The flavors are similar with a lackluster intensity sweet malt, oxidization, not too much more. The coffee builds a little through the beer. Medium bodied. A pedestrian beer with a super high price.
