3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the BeerTemple, shared with caesar. "Clear" black pour with foamy tan foam that recedes rather quickly. Aroma is roasty, lots of coffee, roasted coffee beans, espresso, light nutty aromas, very light dark chocolate. Taste is bitter, tons of coffee, a bit one dimensional, really coffee-forward, but at least it is a pleasant coffee taste. Palate is med-light bodied, quite dry, light bodied porter, med carbonation. Decent.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
(Palo Alto Cool Beanz Coffee Porter) Bottle 650 ml at home, from a trade with MarkoNm, thanks! Served into a snifter, ABV 6%
Very dark mahogany brown colour on the body, huge and very thick tan head, with excellent retention, leaving heavy lacing behind.
Aroma is full of coffee, oats on the background and light fruity notes, grassy hops.
Taste on the other hand is more hop forward and has more intense fruity notes, while the coffee is now on the back, along with roasted malts, light chocolate and the hazelnuts.
Medium body, good carbonation and very dry on the palate.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bue en bouteille. L’étiquette annonce la couleur, on a un beau nez sur le café mais au palais c’est trop. Le café cache le reste. Dommage.
