Slight mocha aroma. Taste is sweet and bitter coffee with some choc in there. Almost sessionable with a nice caffeine hit. Nothing on the aphrodisiac, but still tasty.

Pouts black with light head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate and vanilla. Taste is dark chocolate, moving to dried fruit and rich coffee. Finish is smooth coffee. A very good stout.

DraftDodger (1793) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2017
Copenhagen 17/12 2017. 33 cl bottle from Mad & Vin. Cute red owl surrounded by brown and yellow whirlpool on the label. Pours opaque dark dark brown with light beige head. Settles as thin patch of foam. Remnants of yeast floating around in the beer. No Lacing.Aroma is sweet and intense on a heavy bitter background. Sweet Cocoa and brown sugar dominated with heavy coffee giving a Sound base. Medium carbonation and thick, oily palate. Flavor is medium to strong sweet balanced by coffee bitterness. Lingering bittersweet Aftertaste. A perfect fit for a piece of chocolate after dinner. Well done.

Strong coffee aromas. Fairly malty taste with an instant coffee aftertaste. Quite full body.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2017 På flaske. Fantastisk, forførende aroma af kaffe og ristet brød. Smagen bitter som stærk kaffe. Den er kraftig og insisterende og lige til den gode side. Jeg savner lidt mere kompleksitet og lidt mindre kaffebitterhed. Ellers er der virkelig en god øl!

biilz (278) - SPAIN - NOV 21, 2017
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 (374) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2017
Dark brown with a brown head. Aroma is coffee and roasted malt. Taste is coffee, roasted malt and chocolate.
