3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(33 cl bottle from Bjergtrolden) Pours dark brown with medium, tan head and heavy lace. Decent retention. Aroma is ashtray and coffee. Oily texture, medium body, soft carbonation and bitter, roasted finish. Taste is not sweet, roasted and a slightly herbal bitterness. Aroma less pleasant than the espresso "stout" but the taste is slightly more pleasing. Head gets nicely creamy when you swirl the beer around in the glass a bit. Nice touch. Girlfriend says: "I prefer the other one."
Tapped out black-brown. 38 SRM.
Nose has some sweet charcoal and ripe dark fruit. Hint of coffee.
Mouthfeel is watered honey. Palate has figs, honeyed dates. Hint of burnt twig astringency. But overall the palate has a lot of sweet fruitiness.
Finish is burnt sugar with a little bit of lingering syrup leavened with charcoal bitter. Alusmamuts (1984) - LATVIA - JUL 10, 2017
Dark brown with medium beige head. Coffee aroma. Medium strong bitterness with roasted grain coffee and chocolate notes. Cokemonkey11 (891) - - JUN 24, 2017
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a fair red hue and a thick brown foam residing. Scent is medium dense notes of brown ale and cocoa properties. Taste is smooth cocoa, floral and surprisingly light. Dense on the palate and smooth. A bit sticky. Bitterness from coffee. Mature but simple. Good. danielst (405) - AUSTRIA - JUN 24, 2017
33cl bottle. Dark red-brown color. This has a chocolate and caramel malt aroma with a bit of alcohol. Rich malty flavor, a creamy mouthfeel and nice coffee bitterness. Good beer. BrewTom (660) - - JUN 10, 2017
A big coffee nose. An Americano with one sugar complimented by good malt flavour.

Pours a very dark brown with a huge frothy tan khaki head that leaves a lot of lacing. The aromas were a little lacking but consisted of caramel and roasted malt. Flavors are made of nuts, coffee, caramel and some milk. A creamy and fairly light body with a bitter and dry finish. This was more sweet stout-like than it was brown ale but delicious nonetheless. adster (817) - HUNGARY - MAY 20, 2017
Megnyerő ábrázatú ital, sötét kólaszínű testén tojáshéj habkorona ékeskedik, festeni sem lehetne szebb brown ale-t. Édeskés, pörkölt malátás, barnacukros illatai csalogatóan hatnak, ám az élmény a kortyolást követően válik teljessé. Hosszú kávés, alaposan megédesített, karakteresre pörkölt aromái visszafogott súlyú testben találnak otthonra, összességében azonban kellemes élményt nyújtanak, könnyedén fogyasztható, mégis ízletes karaktert alkotnak. colui72 (1033) - HONG KONG - MAY 12, 2017
Pours brown getting close to black in the glass, big but fast fading beige head, lot f lacing. Aroma is roasted malts and strong coffee. Taste is very rich of espresso coffee, with roasted malts and chocolate, heavy hoppy bitterness. Sticky, full body, soft carbonation, long bitter finish. Very well made "breakfast beer", deep and tasty, close to a stout. Lovely. Evilkniamhel (956) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 5, 2017
On keg at hanging bat. Pours hazy brown. Nose of dark chocolate, espresso. Taste is full bodied, dry coffee grind, cherries, dark chocolate. anstei (2276) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAY 5, 2017
Tap at Erzbierschof Zurich. Pours dark brown. Aroma is chocolate, sweet malts, toasted malts. Body is sweet, but still rather light, again toasted malts and caramel. Palate is rather dry, actually. Good!
