jesperhammer (3918) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2012
01-FEB-2012, bottle @home, gift from and shared with Henrik. Dark brown with light brown lasting head. Roasted weak nose with a hint of coffee. Taste is roasted with coffee. More coffee than on the nose. A bit dissapointed, Not as much coffee as I hoped for. A good porter, thougt. Perhaps not very fresh? Smoothe coffee taste. Qutie likeable.

Christian (12301) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2012
Black with a small tan head. The aroma is filled with cold coffee - of the ashtray and dark berries kind. Malty flavour with overwhelming coffee - it’s too much, but at least the beer finishes with a pretty good coffee aftertaste

Bragesnak (5394) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 21, 2012

mkel07 (4832) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 14, 2012
500ml bottle. Poured a great dark brown to black colour with a slight beige head. Strong coffee bean aroma with a sweetness to it. The flavour mirrors the aroma and fills the mouth with a big burst of coffee flavours. Lingering on the palate the coffee bean flavours can be tasted long after the beer is finished.

dreadnord (1012) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Pours brown and murky small tan head. Nose is green apples. Slightly oxidized. Some coffee as well but it is overwhelmed by the sour. This may be a bad bottle. Taste isn’t sour but the coffee is not coming through. Instead of some expected bitterness I am getting some over sweet taste. Crisp and bubbly on the palate. I need to review this again because I have had it before and I remember it being better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dmac (5165) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 14, 2012
500 ml bottle from Cranbury BuyRite. Poured a good looking opaque black body with a large foamy deep beige head. Aroma is great, sugary black coffee with a hint of milk. Medium bodied with very lively carbonation and a slight hint of creaminess. Flavor is far sweeter then the aroma and rather sugary like someone added coffee to sugar, burnt toast. Decent but too sweet.

wlajwl (5379) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 12, 2012
Dark malt, coffee and a hint of grain in aroma. The flavor is malty with a strong dose of coffee in it, along with a decent chocolate flavor note. Not a coffee fan but can definitely appreciate this porter, it was very good.

Chaseman (50) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 4, 2012
On tap at Lion’s Pride. I love a beer that not only tastes great, but really ignites my senses the way that Coast Rica does. Jet black in appearance with aromas of coffee and slight caramel. Very, very smooth, with coffee being at the forefront, but made a little funky with some pepper notes and a little bit of oak. Good oily mouthfeel, finishes dry.

DalzAle (2018) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - DEC 26, 2011
Bottle shared by portableparty! Dark coffee balck pour, thin carbonation and an aroma of stale coffee. Flavor is cold pressed coffee, green pepper and finished thin on the body. Not one of their best beers.
