on tap at the brewery pours dark brown, medium tan head, good lacing. Coffee ice cream aroma. Light roasted malt, sweet coffee, and dark fruit meet a smokey dry finish. Creamy low carbonation mouth. Easy drinker, and the coffee works well with the dark maltyness.

Head gone in secs; black beer with orange linings. Sweet "coffee beans" (Belgian sugared coffeebean sweets), moccha. Coffee, watered down, "Ersatz" coffee, roasted barley. Thinnish MF, just the roast stepping in. Strange, if not undeserving. Coffee extract - I think Ersatz.

(Draught at Pivovarsky Dum, Prague, 19 July 2008) Very dark brown, almost black, with creamy pale brown head. Roasted nose with loads and loads of fresh coffee, notes of milky chocolate. Roasted, malty taste with lots of fresh coffee and some chocolate. Creamy mouthfeel, but fairly thin body. Not really complex, but a very nice beer with a brilliant coffee character.

Had on tap at Pivovarsky Dum on 6/28. Interesting beer, a coffee lager, which i’ve never had, Worked quite well, as the bitter roast of the coffe balanced the smooth and clean taste of the dark lager.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Pivovarský Dum, Prague.
Pours deep mahogany with a medium. creamy, beige head. Fine duration and good lacings. Aroma is so much lovely coffee, some nuts and dark chocolate. Light mouthfeel, rather fresh for the type. Flavour has powerful coffee, some light dark chocolate. Wonderful, long aftertaste. This I could continue drinking...
