brewskis (123) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Pours as dark as night with a half finger mocha colored head that dissipates quickly and leaves a ring of lacing on the glass. Smells of breakfast roast coffee, some roasted malts, maybe a hint of chocolate. Mostly just like a cup of coffee; nothing that stands out. Taste starts with the bold roasted coffee as well as some milk chocolate. Then in the middle, the coffee flavor stays, but is accompanied with some creamy malt (probably oatmeal) that lightens the bold coffee flavor. Then the finish is much of the same, with bold, yet smooth coffee. Also the milk chocolate comes back and is accompanied with some peat flavors on the very back end. Becomes more bitter and a little more complex as it warms. Nothing really stands out with the smell and taste, but the palate is nice. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel with a light medium body. Nice carbonation presence as well. Hoppin Frog is spot on with the silky mouthfeel. Have had more complex coffee porters. Not bad, but Hoppin Frog has much better offerings.

@ Basunen 16-4-2: Stor doft av kaffesump och aska. Smaken är tydlig med kaffe men munnkänsla är lite tunn. Ok men inget mer.

Alengrin (4081) - BELGIUM - DEC 28, 2015
Draught at BeerTemple. Very creamy, thick, lacing, light beige head over a near black beer. Aroma of espresso, coffee grounds, black tea, ’natural’ iron, fig, dried leaves; dried fruit sweetishness in onset, raisins, figs, bit ’metallic’ but not disturbingly so in this texture; lovely chocolatey and caramelly middle phase, lots of drying coffee powder indeed adding bitterness and spiciness, some warming alcohol in the end. Delicious porter.

Acid303 (653) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - OCT 28, 2015
65cl bottle, served in Duvel glass. Pours black with medium tan head. Aroma is coffee, roasted malts, chocolate and hints of vanilla. Exactly the same flavour, this version is as balanced as the original with more coffee intensity. It would be nice to know what kind of coffee they used. The aftertaste is slightly more bitter than the regular Silk. Creamy mouthfeel, good carbonation. Great brew as expected.
