Bottle: Thanks Fonefan:
Nice medium tan light brown mocha head, bit lively, and changes quick into a nice almost closed and thicker/vaster lacing on top of a black colored beer.
Smell coffee, hint of hops and a hint of dark chocolate.
taste coffee, coffee roast, some light spices, hint of dark chocolate, low to medium bitterness, roasted malts. Overall a dominated coffee roast porter.
Aftertaste is mostly coffee, coffee roast, a light light lactic touch and some hints of dried grass.
Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium to lightly fuller body and a watery texture.
Nice beer, but wasn’t surprised or even a bit blown away.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
500 ml bottle from IPB..
Appearance : Pitch black big foamy creamy head. Some lacing.
Aroma : Rich coffee and piny hops. Very malty. Big coffee, very light chocolate. Some ashes.
Taste : Lots of coffee with light smoke and ashes. Finish ashy with coffee, dark chocolate and lots of piny hops. Finish is quite intense with ashes, coffee and hops. Very light acidity on finish.
Palate : Soft carbonation, fairly thin palate. Maybe a bit too thin.
Overall : Quite good. I like the coffee mixed with the hops and the tar/ashy notes. Very rich and complex yet fairly thin and delicate. A bit too thin for my taste maybe. Good stuff still.
