Svesse (7965) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2014
(Bottle, Arendsnest, Amsterdam, 24 Aug 2014) Black colour with brief, foamy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with chocolate, coffee, mocha and black rye bread. Malty, roasted taste with notes of black coffee, dark chocolate, mocha and a generous coffee bitterness in the finish. Full body, with thick, oily texture. A certain sweetness coming through. Very tasty with a generous coffee and chocolate character, and fairly well balanced for its strength. Lovely beer!

Maakun (4224) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2015 Bottle. Black with small bubbly brown head. Massive coffee, roasted rye, burnt vegetables, whole espresso beans. Some marzipan and a hint of fruits on the nose, but when drinking the massive roasted and coffee notes overpower any hint of sweetness. Taste is very bitter, with a dry bitter finish. Slight watery feel. For total coffee freaks, it’s a bit too one-dimensional for me. 3.2 Re-rate, bottle: more sweet and balanced with more marzipan, less bitter. Much better. 3.6

Cristobal37 (852) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 29, 2014
Really smooth coffee stout. A great example of the style. Its nutty, creamy, and has a nice rich coffee flavor. Packs a punch, though its not boozy at all. Very pleasant.

zacgillbanks (4654) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2016 11.6% ABV bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. An inky black beer that pours with a quickly disappearing tan head. It has chocolate, coffee and an unusual herbal chilli flavour (but with no heat or spice) followed by red fruit, liquorice, and bitter chocolate on the finish. Very Good.
