4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Absolutely drenched in coffee, vanilla, and chocolate aroma and taste. Dark brown, frothy head. Super rich, smooth, huge boozy kick at the end, almost like its bourbon barrel aged. Perhaps some raisin.

Black. Ruby highlights. Head a bit thin but holds a fine lace. Strong coffee nose vanilla a bit muted. Drinkable but it’s a little bit cold coffee as beer for mine. Good but not sure it’s great

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black body, small light brown head. Aroma has huge paprika at first but then mellows to some nutty roasted coffee. Acidic and coaly flavour, some strange bit papery sweetness. Perhaps thats the vainilla.

Dark brown with a diminishing tan head and heavy lace. Big aromas of coffee and dark roasted malt. Light sweet start leading to coffee/espresso. Mild vanilla and hint of oak. Light lactose in the finish. Linger is fairly dry with a hint of bitterness. If you like strong coffee, you should really like this one. Fairly smooth and a bit sticky at times. 1/15

Very dark, almost black coloured beer with an off-white head. The aroma is mod. intensive with notes of espresso, vanilla, smoke and dark chocolate. The taste is very bitter, notes of dark chocolate and coffee. But the malty sweetness is also there. Very good, oily texture and full body. with a nice carbonation. Respect!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Chocolate vanilla with a hint of coffee come from this brown brew. Heavy chocolate taste with vanilla and the coffee comes through on the back of the tongue. It's full body and carb remind me more of a stout rather than a porter. Not a bad brew.
