Leighton (18711) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2013
Keg at CBC Clerkenwell, London during the Birthday Celebration of Jack & Leighton. Pours clear, red-brown with a fine, tan cream head. Lots of rich, sugary coffee in the nose, some dark toast, earth. Medium sweet flavor with hefty coffee character, dark bread, dark chocolate, moderate earthy bitterness. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly earthy bitter finish with coffee grounds, sweet dark chocolate, touches of espresso. Rich. Good stuff.

Theydon_Bois (17229) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2013
Tap at Craft Beer Co Clerkenwell, 13/04/13. Mid black with a very thin tan head. Nose is rich coffee beans, dark chocolate, roast malt, molasses. Taste comprises coffee cake, brown sugars, chocolate, roast malt. Medium bodied with fine carbonation, sweetish finish. Decent enough stuff, I’m a lover of coffee beers, let down a little by being too sweet.

Yeaa boy. Keg @ CBC Clerkenwell. The pour’s deep brown with a tiny head. the nose is rich roasted coffee. Toffee and coffee creamer sweetness. The taste is oatmeal raisin cookie. Some chocolate and more coffee creamer. Rich roasted chocolate finish. Slightly watery palate. Light body. Fine carbonation. Overall, decent stuff.

teorn88 (6734) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2013
On tap at CBC Clerkenwell. It pours a dark deep brown color with almost no head to speak of. Only few brownish bubbles. Aroma is coffee. Loads of it. Some roasted notes and woody ones, but mostly coffee. Taste is similarly uni’dimensional on crushed coffee beans, with little in the way of malty and tart flavours. Some roastiness of course. Body is thin and carbonation soft. Overall, this is a good beer for a coffee lover, but in general Iàd say it lacks in complexity and body.

Scopey (12707) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2013
Keg at CBC, Clerkenwell. It pours near black with a tiny white head. The nose is rich-roasted, espresso, coffee liqueur, burnt caramel, treacle and cocoa. The taste is all about the coffee, roasted malt, light acidity, toast, earth, treacle, touch of liquorice and light alcohol with a bitter finish. Medium body and fine/low carbonation. Not a whole depth of flavour going on, this is dominated by coffee. Still an enjoyable beverage (for a coffee lover anyway!).
