Black and mystical visually, quite fruity nose with clear references to roasted coffee beans. Almost like your morning coffee actually. It ain’t until the first swag that you’ll go furter into this dark matter and find the next level.
Great carbonisation, distinct coffee hits you first, enhanced with bourbon, nuts and oaky layers, before a very bitter finish- and a suitable heat stemming from the alcohol. There is sooo much coffee taste in here that it is incredible! Unholy goodness. And not unlike the regular KBS version, the smooth mouth-coating feel is great, even though the bitterness clearly cuts through here.
Another great beer from these masters of black brews.
