This one is pitch black with a nice, light brown head. My nose is met by a distinct coffee aroma, and after a while I also sense other notes of roasted malt and a weak hint of smoke. The same goes for the flavour. This must be the ideal beer for a coffee lover. It was a fun, nice and exciting experience.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2007 (Bottled) Hazy, dark reddish brown with a medium, tanned, lacy and partly lasting head. Dryish, quite delicious coffee-liquour/coffee beans aroma. Dry, slightly ashy flavor - much like mocca-filled chocolates. Medium-bodied, slightly thin palate with medium carbonation. Surprisingly pleasant and interesting. I think you could call this a "special brew" for a reason.

Dark ale, thick and creamy milk chocolate head.
Lot of lovely coffee flavour. It’s a nice coffee, flavour, mind you, sweet and milky, but it overwhelms the porter totally. But there are afternoons when I want bot a beer and a coffee...

Another decent ale from meantime. Aroma is dry coffee, some biscuit malts come through at times and some strange but good hopy notes. Taste is similar however perhaps a little overly carbonated.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Aroma of brown sugar and coffee. Flavor is chocolate, vanilla and more coffee leading to a dry, slightly dusty end. Smooth mouth feel. The finish is slightly bitter and with a pleasant coffee aftertaste. A very simple beer, which does what it does really good. Marvellous!
