COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cool Beanz Coffee Porter is a easy drinking porter with a balanced yet notably coffee focused beer. We brew this beer with our local Coffee Roaster Philz Coffee. The Philz roast we use, Philtered Soul, is roasted with hazelnuts and lends a nice nutty roundness to the beer

mateuszk (851) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 27, 2015
Draught. Black with white head. In aroma coffee, strong sour notes, maybe from roasted malt and coffee. In taste similar, nice coffee flavour ruined by strong sourness. Watery, medium bitter. All turned out to be one dimensional beer with sourness ruining it completely.

dambor (173) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 19, 2015
Pours pitch black with a nice head. Aroma: freshly grounded coffee dominates the picture, some vanilla in the background. Taste: espresso, dark malt. Surprisingly little body for this one, almost watery body. Nice aroma but I expected far more from the taste. More complexity would be also nice, as the (no doubt, great) coffee aroma/taste is the only dominating thing here.
