mattyb83 (737) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Bottle. Deep, dark brown in color with a rather large and tightly packed khaki head. Looks pretty nice. Sweet aroma with chocolate, toffee, some light roast coffee. Pretty nice, but this is a bit sweeter than I’d like. Taste is chocolate, some raisins, dark cherries, and maybe a touch of coffee. Not what I was expecting from this beer. A bit thin bodied, but otherwise this is okay. I feel my tastes have changed quite a bit over the last couple of years. Dark beers were something that I loved, but lately I’ve been struggling to finish even small amounts of them.

lusikka (6523) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 10, 2012
500 ml bottle @ Pub Kultainen Apina, Tampere.
Pours a murky brown colour with an orange hue and no head at all. Aroma of strong roasted malts, dark coffee, pepper and vegetables. Flavour of roasted malts, milk, smooth roasted coffee, mild hops and some sweet raisins. Unfortunately some vegetable notes from the coffee beans but not as strong as expected. Medium bodied, silky oily mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Finishes very smooth, mellow and roasty. Coffee isn’t too aggressive here, but this could use a heavier body.

Strong coffee aroma, as well as taste. Very dark, almost soy saucy appearance. Medium body. Quite possibly the best coffee porter I’ve tasted

ComradeK (1052) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - JUL 18, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a smallish beige head, which lasts fairly well and leaves decent lacing. There are some roasty malt notes and an odd, almost milk-like whiff in the aroma, but it is dominated not so much by coffee as cold coffee grounds, which is not entirely pleasant. Very faint bitter herbal hops lead into a touch of nutty malt, but again coffee grounds dominate, giving the beer the feel of a coffee that has been left to go cold. This cold coffee flavour leaves a persistent and slightly unpleasant aftertaste. This beer is quite a disappointment; the first really missable Haandbryggeriet beer I have tried.
