4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Brilliant brilliant beer. Pitch black poor with mocha head. Aroma is dominated by coffee and backed up by superb roast. Aroma follows through into the glass. As my fiancé said its like a beer espresso. It incedaby smooth and well balance and even though the coffee dominates this beverage it is in a tasty retrained fashion. Will be sampling more of this brewer because of this beer.
I couldn’t rate and analyze this beer at the time, so this comes posthumously lol. It was absolutely fantastic, I’ll definitely buy it again if I get the chance. Good stuff Pdubyah (812) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 22, 2012
Wow! this is a special thing that you should get amongst. This has all the things, the coffee, the vanilla, the length, the whole nine yards. Get in! maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 2, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours like cola with a small light tan head which quickly disappears. Nose is very mocha-like. Notes of not only roasted coffee beans but fresh beans as well. The coffee mingles with light chocolate and roasted malts. A touch of sweet vanilla in there as well. Very smooth in the taste. Light cocoa powder and flat white notes at the forefront of the taste. Not over powered by the coffee tones which is a good thing. Finishes with roasted malts and vanilla sweetness. Quite spritzy yet full bodied at the same time. Sweet and bitter espresso-like finish on the palate. Drinkability is quite high. Very nice beer indeed gam (4097) - brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 12, 2011
