UPDATED: NOV 8, 2017 Bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Pours black with a medium-sized, frothy head. The aroma features rich roasty maltiness including strong coffee, rye bread and chocolate. Taste is heavily roasty, full of coffee and dark chocolate. Hint of hoppy bitterness in the finish. Intense but well balanced taste. The palate is deliciously smooth and robust, full in body. Quality stuff. foodgazer (39) - MALAYSIA - NOV 3, 2017
It’s like the first and second waves of coffee making a comeback in the form of a roasted malty ale. Easily one of the most unique beers I’ve ever tasted. The first notes that hit the nose are a sharp, bold, almost spicy wave, that quickly gives way to a punchiness of dark roasted “coffee” notes. Usually coffee ales/stouts have a coffee-ish taste distinct from the body of the beer. Not so here. The two feel almost interlaced, and yet you get that strange hit of chili with every fresh sip. It’s intense and bizarre.
