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

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.

Douberd (2905) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 31, 2015
(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. Very good.

jredmond (5839) - Manhattan, New York, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Draft with Linh, Will and Caroline in SF. Pours a deep brown body with thin lacing. Aroma is coffee and chocolate malts. Mouthfeel is light with notes of sweet milk chocolate and mild coffee roast. A tad muted overall, but a nice porter.

Idiosynkrasie (4466) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 23, 2014
650ml bottle. Clear chestnut colour with average to huge, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, beige to tan head. Slightly sweet-ish, dark malty aroma, intense mocha notes. Taste is dark malty, mocha notes; slightly watery. Somehow like a roasted coffee bean swimming on water instead on Sambuca.

Renobob (1051) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 18, 2014
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.

freretoc (982) - Besançon, FRANCE - OCT 28, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 66cl chez le Ki achetée à la Capsule Nancy, couleur noire mousse peu présente tout comme l’effervescence, goût café au lait, moka, cappuccino, trop café pas assez équilibré car on sent peu le reste.
