Bottle from Asahiya. A cola black with a pronounced tan head. This English brew has a nutty chocolate espresso aroma. A bit too light, syrupy slick with a rough CO2 - this would be awesome on cask. The taste is syrupy sweet chocolate espresso - a touch fake but nice enough. FrankZappa7 (511) - GERMANY - FEB 6, 2016

Aroma: Strong coffee and roasted malt.
Flavour: Very strong coffee with roasted malt, and fairly fruity sweet.
Colour: Very dark brown with a light brown head. MiP (15943) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2015
Bottle, 6.0%. Extremely powerful coffee aroma, sweet and creamy. Black colour. Small frothy light brown head. The flavour has almost the same amount of coffee as the aroma. It is quite flavourful, but does not have the bitterness that some coffee does. Has a little sourness in the finish, reminds me of booziness but that would be surprising with only 6% ABV.

Bottle. Pours cloudy very dark brown with small tan head. Clear aroma of coffee, with notes of roast, yeast and mild chocolate. Bitter, roasty flavour, with notes of lactose, coffee and malt and some estery touches. Coffeelike aftertaste with hints of dark chocolate. Nice. hohops (1052) - Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2015
