tricksta_p (5223) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2017
Bottle from Burg Bieren, Ermelo. Aroma is coffee beans, dark malt, roast, coffee grounds, caramel, and liquorice. Flavour is fairly sweet and moderate to medium bitter. Body is above medium, alcohol being covered well. Yum, lots of coffee, good stuff.

CacheManyHose (772) - HONG KONG - SEP 5, 2017
Draught from Mikkeller & Friends in Reykjavik. Pours an opaque brown-black w a thin beige head. Smells of inky coffee, pitch black coffee beans, light smoke, faint caramel. Taste is black roast malt, very dark, light to moderate acidity and brightness, little bit of citrusy brightness in the finish. Body is a bit thin compared to the taste, quite a bit of smoke/ash. Nice but basically just dark coffee grounds + ash. Very good! But not great.

HKdIPA (853) - HONG KONG - SEP 5, 2017
Tap from Mikkeller and Friends Reykjavík. Pitch black pour with thin fine light tan head. Aroma is roasted coffee bitterness, some licorice but complementary. Taste is similar - lots of roasted acidic coffee bitterness, a bit of licorice again, less alcohol than expected for 10% beer. Bitter coffee grounds flavor lasts. Palate somewhat rich. Not bad - straightforward coffee stout.

@ISKTR 2017. BBE 03.03.37. Pullonpohjat. Mustanpunertava väri, niukka reunavaahto. Tuoksu tumma, nahkaisa, täyteläisä, viettelevä. Suutuntuma tunkkaisan vanhentunut lihaliemi, alkoholi täysin piiilossa, samettinen, jättää aika kylmäksi.

olio (10592) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 18, 2017
33 cl bottle @ ISKTR 2017.

Pours dark brown color with a small beige head. The coffee here seems a bit old and thus vegetable-y, roasted malty, some cocoa notes and hops. Flavor bitter with coffee, malty, some earthy notes, spices. Dry.

Drank while writing 16-8-2017. Nice coffee stout. Decent. Very dominant coffee, nice taste, somewhat neutral aftertaste.
