UPDATED: AUG 7, 2014 33cl bottle, batch nov 2013. Fizzy foamhead like the Honey Badger, vanished instantly. What an explosion of aromas! Now this is some real deal coffee! Fermented honey, dates, alcohol intertwined with a rich collection of different coffee beans, licorice and sticky as pine tar. The coffee bean aroma is just amazing, wanna smell this forever! Next to the espresso-ish experience, the high alcohol fumes when sniffed are astonishing... Lovely meady siropy character. Highly underrated beer people, although this is for a small niche of tasters and palates. The 17,5 ABV doesn’t feel as high as one would suspect. Top notch coffee aromas, sticky as thick sirup and so wonderfully full bodied. Would love a crate of this beer. I’m a tad to late I presume?.. Top quality beer brewed with heart!

Draught at Fermentoren. Pitch black - brown head. High potent super fresh coffee aroma. Sweetness. Nice burned. Honey flowery. Nice burned. Lovely smooth. This hides the 16 % very well.... StoutHead (993) - DENMARK - MAR 20, 2013
On tap at Fermentoren. Pours pitch black with a super creamy tan head.
Super sweet taste of roasted malt, dark chocolate and intense coffee notes. The high amount of alcohol is very well hidden in this smooth and crazy thick, viscous monster of a beer. A 20cl. serving is perfect for this...liquid cake. :-) joergen (29624) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2013

Draft @ Malmö Öl & Whisky Festival. Pours a black color with a small fast disappering tan head. Has a roasted malty fresh grounded coffee aroma. Sweetish roasted malty strong coffee flavor with hints of chocolate and honey. Has a sweetish roasted mlaty strong coffee finish. SamTheBarrel (847) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - JAN 11, 2014
330ml bottle with an unusual wax sealed bottle cap, poured into a snifter. Appearance is nearly opaque brownish black with a small creamy mocha colored head. Aroma has a strong presence of coffee, dark chocolate, raisins, muscovado, roasted malts and syrup loaf. Taste is medium bitter with a medium light sweetness. Palate is full bodied with a thick somewhat sticky texture and soft carbonation. An extreme Imperial Stout by all means, striking espresso flavour and a considerable 17.5% ABV, that adds warmth but is well masked. I enjoyed this and would recommend this beer for espresso lovers.
