The strong espresso character comes from the addition of espresso beans to the boil.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2016 Quite delicious. The bitter of the coffee balanced excellently with the sweetness of the malt. Serving: Bottle

Отличный классический стаут. Аромат сильно кофейный но при этом не очень приятный. Симпатичная кофейная пенка. Вкус довольно резок, собственно сам Эспреессо с няшной этикетки. Также чувствуется слегка жженая карамель. Послевкусие плавное, кофейное.

mmmeinike (303) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2017

Zilb (380) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - NOV 2, 2017
1 mois avant DLC. Brassée avec des grains de café. Bue avec moelleux chocolat. Noire opaque, petite mousse beige tenue moyenne sans carbo, normal pour le style. Arôme sur le café et le réglisse. Pointe caramel. En bouche, café doux, caramel et chocolat noir. Final avec légère amertume bienvenue, et pointe d'alcool (7,5%) bien dosée. Superbe équilibre global ! Une superbe stout bien qu'habituellement pas mon style de bière !

evannell (1391) - Kraków, POLAND - NOV 2, 2017
Aromat kawy, ciemnej czekolady, ale również jakiś dodatkowy, kwaśny, średnio przyjemny. W smaku również wszystko fajnie oprócz tej lekkiej, jeżynowej kwaśności. Nie do końca mi ona tutaj pasuje. Tym niemniej oprócz tego przyjemna wanilia, zwietrzałe espresso, gorzka czekolada na końcu. Przyjemne koniec końców. Dość mocno nagazowane, prawie zero słodyczy. A chuj z tym, i tak wypiję.

33cl bottle. Dark brown. Aroma is roasty, with caramel maltiness and coffee. The flavor is quite heavy on the coffee, aftertaste is like having bubbly coffee. Astringent and rather light mouthfeel. A little one-note, but solid.

Ritzn (1808) - GERMANY - OCT 24, 2017
Darkest brown with medium brown head. Aroma is chocolate, dried cocoa, bell peppers, a hint of fish. Taste is dry coffe, a bit mild apple sourness and soy sauce. Medium drinkable and not entirely smooth. Good. A bit too dry for me.

jonas (8035) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - OCT 24, 2017
Bottle, thanks for bringing rating #8000 Jan! Black, creamy brown head. Light oxidized coffee aroma, strong roasted, soy sauce, fruits. Medium full, mellow body. Light chili/spice entry, licorice, dark chocolate, great coffee profile on the palate. Dry coffee finish. Really deserves the Espresso on the label.

SinH4 (6265) - Garching b. M�nchen, GERMANY - OCT 24, 2017
Bottle, jonas' 8k, many thanks jfb! Opaque brown color with beige head. Aroma is super nice espresso ground, a touch green bell peppers, chocolate, roast. Taste is espresso ground, chocolate, a touch liquorice, umami. Lots of espresso in the finish. High carbonation. Awesome!
