An absolute unique beer. Very, very strong taste, not to be taken lightly. Could be a really fine dessert beer, but I found it a little to much for my liking.

Zlotta (2928) - Hagen / Bonn, GERMANY - APR 18, 2017
UPDATED: APR 18, 2017 0.33 l bottle from P&M Getrnke, best before June 2018. Black with a medium large, slightly creamy, very dense, stable, beige head. Sweetish-malty, moderately roasty aroma of dark chocolate, praline, vanilla, hazelnut and quite a bit of coffee. Rather sweet, roasty-malty taste of dark chocolate, coffee, praline, licorice and some hazelnut, followed by a medium long, rather roasty-bitter, slightly warming finish. Full body, creamy mouthfeel, very soft carbonation. Delicious!

De expresso bar is geopend. Geen woord te weinig in de naam van dit biertje. Dit zou je sochtends al willen drinken onder het excuus om wakker te worden. Niet de beste schuimer. Kleur donker en solid wat je kan verwachten. De geur ja koffie :-) maar toch nog subtiel. Totdat je een slok neemt. Dan krijg je een overdosis expresso te verwerken. Met wacht een lichte smaak van chocola met een zoete alcohol smaak als je drinkt en heel misschien te subtiel bittertje op het eind. Kortom een must voor elke koffie lief hebber zolang je zwart drinkt.

Bouteille 33. Belle noire quelques reflets. Fines bulles et mousse beige persistante jusqu la fin de la dgustation. Superbe nez de caf torrfi, de rglisse, de chocolat au lait, ... mais surtout de caf !!! 1e bouche surprenante car frache -bien que la bouteille soit t ambiante- puis le caf lemporte avec des notes de fruits noirs (ou rouges), dpices, de malts rtis. Lamertume est longue et parfait ce magnifique stout o lalcool est joliment intgr !

Dark brown, cola looking beer with very small head. Aroma is nice. It has roasted malts, milk coffee, some smoke. Taste is roasted, dark coffee, malts. Dry, not very sweet. Full body, low carbonation, alcohol does not exist.

Icedwarf (1522) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - FEB 25, 2017
Zwart bier met mooie stevige schuimkraag. Smaak is bitter en licht zoet met sporen van koffie, mokka, bittere chocolade en vanille.

VDuquerroux (1558) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - FEB 15, 2017
Bottle, 33cL. Home. Nederlands bier day# A sparkling black beer with a big beige foamy head ; good retention ; ok lacing. Coffee nose, roast, black chocolate, light caramel, prune note. Medium round sweet, medium dry bitter refreshing, light warming background. Medium good body, light to medium oily texture, soft carbonation, coffee bitter lasting dry finish. Overall, very good ! Nevertheless, lack of warming character ; a bit watery.

Visual: Best at 12C stated on the label. Pours super dark brown without a head, ultra thin ringed retention with a very thin spotty island of retention, hard-to-see steady micro singular streams.

Nose: med-dark roasted barley malt, molasses, caramel (lvl-5)-pungency

Attack: crisp, liquid-thick viscosity

Mid-palate: micro light tingly, coffee acidity, (lvl-4)-sweetness, deep roasted nutty bitter coffee mixed with sweet roasted barley malt = bittersweet, date-fig

Finish: woody vanilla undertones, dry cocoa, dark chocolate, lengthy residual coffee-barley malt.

Summary: I prefer it at 16C as opposed to the recommended 12C, I notice deeper bittersweet coffee notes at right at the start of the mid-palate. At 18C the dark fruit notes of the coffee appear, think date/fig. In conclusion, a really interesting imp stout that changes in flavour profile as the savour each sip - recommended. Exception lingering of residual flavours at the finish.

pims (9) - - JAN 26, 2017 does not count
Aroma : cold coffee Appearance : pitch black, nice brown head Taste : agressive, definitely tastes like a cold coffe, but not a very good one Overall : not the best espresso one can find. Despite the 10%, you cant realy feel the alcohol kicking in (good point)

Beer5000 (6328) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2016
330 ml bottle. Black body with a small beige head. Aroma has lots of coffee but also roasted dark malt and dark chocolate. Flavor is medium sweet dark roasted malt with lots of good coffee and dark chocolate, fine bitter hoppy balance. Balanced in body as well and long lasting aftertaste with dark malt and coffee. A classic coffee stout.
