ComradeK (1076) - 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.

Coffee Porter Bottle. Pours black with brown head. Nose/taste of soft roasted chocolate malt, cocoa, fresh coffee beans, sweet malt, coffee creamer and soft sugar. Nose has some slight vegetal qualities to it. Very much like a cold cup of coffee with a drop of creamer. Medium body.

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2012
Bottle:   Certainly smells like cold coffee, looks like cold coffee with the exception of the large frothy beige head and nice lacing.   Tastes like cold coffee with lots of cream and sugar.   Soft roastiness, sweet coffee bean, sugar, creamer.... yeah, its like an iced coffee except with more roasted maltiness.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Slightly ashy, otherwise very much like heavy sugar and creamer on coffee.   Funny, his is how I used to have my coffee all the time.   Good stuff, even if the Porter aspect seems to take a backseat to the bean.

ej (1041) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - JUN 26, 2012
Deep deep brown pour with a nice tan head. Aroma is intense roasted coffee beans; bitter and sharp. Hints of caramel and hops are detectable but faintly. Taste is alot sweeter than expected, but still tonnes of coffee in the taste. Strong chocolate flavour also and some sweet, nutty maltiness is well balanced off with light bitterness, finishing in a slight sweet manner. Body is medium, slick and softly carbonated.

Black with huge tan head. Smoky aroma of chocolate toffee and coffee. Rich and complex palate like the finish of a great mocha with notes of tobacco and caramel.

fiulijn (16924) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 23, 2012
Tasting at Papsø’s
Dark brown color, almost black. Smell of poor office coffee pot, ashy. The flavor is a bit sweet, with malt flavor, roasted malts, and bad coffee (old boiled coffee). Unfortunate.

500ml bottle in stem glass. Pours black with a lacy, light tan head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts, a little caramel and nuttiness, plus a decent amount of bitter hops. Flavor the same, with lots of coffee. Smooth texture. A lot of coffee in this one, which I like.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 15, 2012
The pour is dark brown with a small, tan, frothy head which is mostly diminshing and leaves minimal, frothy lace. The nose is very earthy, buttery, lightly woodsy, coffee roast, some dark bread toast, and faint dark chocolate and caramel. The flavor is still very earthy, moderate coffee roast with minimal acidity, light dark toast, some woodsy notes, light dark chocolate, and an iodine note. The palate is less than lively, medium, drying, and creamy. The beer finishes more bitter and still very earthy, some iodine, and chocolate. Interesting beer with odd coffee addition notes, but it was well built and drinkable. Decent.
