Dark brown pour. Dark coffee in nose, but taste had strange iron and pepper in it. Appropriate body, just not too great.

Bottle. Clear dark Brown, with almost no head. Aromas are, of course coffee, roast and toffee. Taste is sour and bitter. Low carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. Finishes with a tasty coffee Aroma and a light sweetness.
Great porter, with delicate coffee taste.

Geruch nach angebranntem, kalten Kaffee. Der Geschmack ist dann wie der miese Morgen nach der Party: Zigarettenkippen, mieser Schnaps, kalter Kaffee.

330 ml bottle into pint glass, bottled on 8/16/2013. Pours fairly crystal clear reddish brown color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of dark roasted coffee, chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toast, roasted malt, brown bread, light nuttiness, herbal, and roast/toasty earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of coffee, dark/roasted malt, and light earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of roasted coffee, chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, caramel, toast, brown bread, light nuttiness, herbal, and roast/toasty earthiness. Fair amount of herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of coffee, chocolate, cocoa, roast, caramel, toast, brown bread, light nuttiness, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and complexity of coffee and dark/roasted malt flavors; with a good bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, moderately creamy, and slightly chalky/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice coffee porter. Good balance and complexity of coffee and dark/roasted malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Dark ruby brown in colour with a gibbous crescent of light brown head. The aroma is of dusty, ground coffee that is just a few weeks after roasting. There’s a signature roastiness about it that appeals. The flavour is roasty and of dark chocolate, salty Dutch licorice and more coffee. It leaves a lingering astringency on the underside of the tongue that is most gratifying. It’s easy to overdo the coffee in coffee posters, but this is beautifully balanced and offers satisfying drinking.
