Pours jet black with a dark tan head. Aroma is strong, dark espresso coffee, some sweetness, biscuit. Taste is strong, dark coffee upfront, leading to a wonderful coffee, syrup sweetness, some spices, nutmeg, cinnamon, finish with a nice smooth bitterness that lingers for a short while. Some more spice, cloves coming through at the end. Lovely thick, full bodied with medium to low carbonation. Absolutely fantastic. colui72 (1120) - HONG KONG - DEC 8, 2017

(330ml bottle from kihoskh.dk) Pours black with a small pale brown head. Aroma of quite earthy and fairly roasty coffee, cocoa powder, vanilla cream, sweet dark dried fruit, moderate orange/citrus vibes. Flavour is sweet, figs and orange peels are more prominent than the coffee up front, more vanilla cream, raw sugar, then earthy sweetened black coffee kicks in, some chocolate cake. Subtle spicebox appears in the back with more earthy, chocolatey brewed coffee, smooth roast. Medium bodied but somewhat oily, fairly soft carb, very little alcohol. A different coffee stout, for me it's the fruit adjuncts that really round out the flavour profile. Overall it's a nice sipper albeit a touch sweet.

extras od Bena. niezły kawowy RIS. sporo kawy, ciemnych suszonych owoców, słodów, karmelu, ale dość wytrawne i goryczkowe, ciała mogłobyć więcej. Iznogud (4516) - CROATIA - NOV 20, 2017

Bottle from Brewcraft, drank at home. Pours a pitch-dark black-brown with a fizzy tan head. Smells of earthy roast coffee, moderate herbal bitterness and dark chocolate, slightly sharp acidity and fig sweetness, slightly spicy biscuit malt, booze, light baking soda and cream / marshmallow. Taste has less roasty bitterness, more caramel sticky sweetness, verylightly herbal / vegetal. Body is quite smooth, medium, acidic/sharp. Overall very smooth: quite sweet but also roasted and acidic. Coffee is smooth but, like the palate, on the more acidic / sharp side. Would like the body more if it were fuller, and on the whole could use a touch more bitterness to balance the sweetness (esp. in the taste). Big, smooth and enjoyable.
