Very nice aroma with hints of coffee. Pours an almost opaque black, with a quickly fading light tan head. The flavor is interesting, with coffee lingering in the back of the mouth with a touch of bittersweet chocolate. The coffee in this is much more subtle then in most other coffee infused beers. It’s light on the palate, with a long lingering coffee finish. This is an outstanding variation on the Silk Porter, and I’ll be picking up some more of this.

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

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.
