Medium aroma of malts, caramel, vanilla, chocolate, mocha, roasted malts and coffee.
Opaque dark brown/black beer with no/a slight beige/brown head.
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, vanilla, chocolate and mocha; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts and coffee.
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Great flavour for its abv with some vanilla and coffee and mostly mocha. Could have benefited from some more carbo or some (more) hops for the head. Great appearance and palate as well, but the aroma could have been stronger.
Can bought at Utrechtse Bierbrouwers Festival 2017. Aroma is strong cold coffee, roasted malt, espresso, mocha and some powdery cocoa. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Body is medium, maybe a bit thin considering the aroma. Lovely cold coffee brew. MarcoDL (5028) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2017
