UPDATED: AUG 21, 2013 Bottle @ Milan-PSV warm up. Thanks to Hallinghansen. Pours black with a creamy beige head and lacings. Nose is simply just amazing. Freshest and nicest coffee profile and a bit of tobacco. Flavor has coffee, tobacco and chocolate. It is so smooth and silky that it’s impossible to describe. One of the best coffee beers ive had. This is a crazy moment. The sun is setting, looking out the window, waiting for a great soccer match on TV, listening to CV Jørgensen (I det muntre hjørne) and vaguely hearing my newly born son making noises in the next room. Without sounding too clichee-ish - life is good! djd07 (16289) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2014
