Pitch black with a dark cream head. Pours very lively and keeps its head. Smells of coffee with chocolate undertones. Tastes very sweet coffee. Not a fan.

JorgeLee (1919) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2016
On tap at the Euston Tap. Dark brown, off white foam. Mild roastiness, sweet lactic almost sugary character, then strong iced coffee flavour. Getting a bit bored of gimmicky coffee beers but this was actually quite nice.

Parmenion777 (184) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2016
Bottle pours a dark brown almost black colour with a thick frothy creamy light brown coloured head. A cappuccino coffee aroma including the chocolate. Moderately sweet coffee flavour, a little cocoa and a gentle spicy bitter finish.

larsga (7375) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 7, 2016
Medium beige head. Barely translucent deep dark red body. Fruity dusty cocoa aroma with herbal cedar wood notes. Dryish mealy fruity herbal taste with cocoa and cedar wood notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mealy mouthfeel. Dry roasty fruity cocoa aftertaste with dusty floral notes. Lovely. Harmonic and easy-drinking. (0.5l draft at Gulating Restaurant, Lillestrm. ABV listed at 3.8%.)

Inbreak (5032) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2016
05.05.2016, 0,5l bottle (as 3,8%) @ home:
Nice light brown creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly rich and dry roasted, espresso, dark malts, minerals, lactose, nuts, caramel, chocolate, mild grassy smoked chillies, hops. Taste is dry roasted, weeds, roasted grain, minerals, mild espresso, grass, hops, lactose, burnt caramel, cocoa, mild grassy chillies. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mineraly mouthfeel. The first sip is very burnt and dry mineraly. But the taste kind if grows on you, so it ends up pretty nice, specifically for the low ABV. Still, it could have been pretty amazing if the taste had lived up to the lovely aroma.

sebletitje (9556) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 2, 2016
Draft @ Tilquin English Fest 16, day2. Brune fonce, col fin blanc-cass, presque lger moka. Arme au nez fin grill et toast offrant de trs fines et complexes effluves de caf. Le rtro lactose est modr et accompagne trs bien le caf sans devenir trop dominant. Palais est lger, finement grill, caf onctueux souhait avec un ct lactose qui joue presque le rle de crme de caf sans pour cela devenir trop sucr et encombrant au niveau douceur comme cest souvent le cas avec des milk stouts. Fini amertume noble accompagne chaque gorge avec un caf qui est vraiment bien exploit.
