33cl brown bottle purchased from Domus Birrae in Rome.

Pours a deep dirty brown, hazy and opaque, with a pocked, pancake head of beige. Lacing forms in spots. The body is surprisingly light and fluid. Otherwise, it looks pretty good.

Nose is rich with solid coffee aromas, sharp, spicy and slightly hot. Noticeable fruity chilli characters, fresh like cut green capsicum, but with an underlying sweetness like high-cocoa chocolate. The malt is subdued by the coffee addition, meaning that it probably wasn't all that strong to begin with, but the aromas are very pleasant nonetheless.

Taste is also solid, although the lack of malt is noticeable here, and the lack of body. The coffee is pleasantly balanced: giving a firm roasty note and leavened fragrant characters of pepper and spice. There's a genuinely lack of sweetness though, especially for a 9% ABV beer. It means the stout aspect is lessened somewhat. Feel is also a bit weak. It's still very tasty, but certainly less than others of its genre.

It's a good beer, and certainly one with a lot of heft behind it. While there are things I don't like all that much about it, there are many more things that I enjoy. It's certainly worth seeking out—it's an interesting beer with a good use of coffee.

Black, totally. One finger of light brown colored foam.
In the smella very strong coffe, intense. Then cocoa beans, and some "green" note of liquorice root.
Relatively less strong in the mouth, but still with good notes of coffee, and hop and liquorice root in the end.
Chocolate, cocoa.
Average body. Relatively long aftertaste, coffee overall, and then liquorice.
Good, intense, full of taste.

Pours black with a large, lasting head.
Loads of coffee on the nose along with a fair bit of roasted malt, oatmeal and soft spicy hops.
Flavours are pretty much just roasted malt and bitter coffee along with a fair bit of sharp booze.
Loads too much carbonation.
Nice, but not enough roast and too much booze.

Freshness info: Consume by 12/2013. Lotto. 357 11.

Brewed with Cafe El Mundo coffee.

A - Poured dark brown and settled black with a small layer of light brown head.

S - Massive espresso aroma up front that dominates. Background offers some lighter roast, char and a faint licorice aroma.

T - Bitter espresso up front that dominates at fist and then settles down a little. Mid-palate adds roast, a hint of chocolate and brown sugar. Good balance of bitter and sweet.

M - Medium body. Creamy. Moderate carbonation.

Bottle from Beer Deluxe. From notes.

A - Poured black with a three finger fluffy brown head. Minimal lace and a finger of retention.

S - Lot's of coffee, fresh ground coffee. Pretty straight forward.

T - Roasty and lot's of coffee with some booze.

M - Good carbonation, medium body and a good bitterness.

O/D - I'm not gonna pretend like I tasted much else but pure coffee in this. Didn't think it was too great. Not bad, but certainly didn't break the mold, and seemed to rely far too much on one element. Decent but hard to hold interest.
