Bouteille 75cl courtesy of Ibrew2or3.
De couleur brune foncée, col épais moka.
Arôme est fortement axé sur les malts, moka, grillé et torréfié, biscuité avec une dominance du café.
Palais est malté grillé, café sur une note adoucie de vanille et une certaine épaisseur de bouche venant du lactose. Le niveau torréfié est dominant. Effervescence moyenne et une amertume houblonnée subtile vient ponctuer chaque gorgée. 77ships (10473) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 19, 2014
75 cl. bottle sampled @ RBBWG 2014. Courtesy of & thx! to Sebletitje. GUSHER. Pours a very dark blackish brown with a vanishing dark mocha head. Nose is heavy on the roast, caramel, mocha, coffee powder, all bitter & heavy on the roast. Charcoal upfront in the taste, bitter coffee grounds, charred barrel, faint sweetness in the back, mocha. Bit thin & fizzy. Would have preferred personally if there had been more sweetness in this & not bitter grounds and charcoal. Not a bad beer but I think that CCB can reach greater heights than this. olr1984 (1500) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 14, 2014

750mL bottle, sent from Daniel 719 (thanks a lot, Daniel), pours black with a tiny tan head. Nose brings out loads of vanilla beans, followed by coffee and slight woody notes. Flavour brings out rich notes of roasted malt, wood, vanilla beans, and espresso. Very woody, dry, and roasty, with just enough vanilla and subtle coffee notes. Super complex and highly drinkable. Awesome stuff.

Sampled from a 0.75l bottle @ Top Hops (BA) Bottle Share. Yeah, it’s really dark and black in the glass this one - with a small islandy brown head. It has a fantastic aroma filled with vanilla, dark roasted malts, chocolate, fudge and a strong molasses sweetness. The mouthfeel is silky thick and oily and the carbonation is just prickling on the tongue. The taste has creamy chocolate, lots and lots of vanilla pods, dark coffee and a lovely sweetness to it. A really really fine one I would not mind revisiting again and again. 15.06.2013 JK (6240) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 5, 2013
RBSG 2013. Black of course with low carbonation and a very smooth palate. Aroma has rich vanilla but the flavor is surprisingly dry with some coffee. Rich and full of flavor. Good. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2013
