8.5 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Inky black body. Medium khaki head. Thin collar.

Smell - Coffee. Fudgy chocolate. Boozy with a light fruitiness.

Taste - Coffee and a lot of fruitiness. Intense roast and sugar. Gets bitter quickly. Boozy finish.

Mouthfeel - Heavy. Boozy. A little sluggish.

Overall - Good, but nothing remarkable.

You know I'm beginning to really like the Scandinavians! This is a phenomenal dark ale brewed coffee beans very dark very heavy great for those cold winter days or nights. In spite of his high alcohol content this went very smooth very silky, delicious. I don't remember how much this bottle was but I wish I bought two. Cheers!

Two fiddy millz. Cheers, Simon!!

A. Pours a very deep brown, almost black, not much for head but not still.

S. Licorice, estery booze (maybe a little fusel), dry roasty dark malts and black coffee. Smells like early bedtime.

T. Oooh, here we go. Nice dark coffee, dry cocoa, dark roasty malts, a touch of smoke, some dark frutiness. Dangerously little alcohol taste.

M. Full body, low carbonation.

Overall. This beer wasn't on my radar at all but super happy to have tried it. Also happy to have noticed that it was a coffee stout and didn't leave it too long ...I've been thinking it was a non-adjunct beer like the other 2-fiddy I have that looks almost the same. Great stuff despite the ridonkulous abv, quite an achievement. Thanks again, Simon!!
