Keg at CBC Clerkenwell 2nd B’Day Extravaganza. It pours a deep brown body with a medium eggshell head on top. Lasting foam. Aroma is intensely coffee forward, roasted malts and some wood. Then hops kicks in with some pineapple and peach notes. Taste is similarly coffee forward with a good hoppy kick. Mouthfeel is quite creamy with good carbonation. Overall, a seriously good brew, one of my favourites from Partizan.

Draught, half pint as Partizan North Bar Laynes Espresso IPA 6.2 % ABV, at North Bar. Decent beige head leaving nice lacework behind. Opaque cola dark body. Cold coffee on the nose, slightly roasted. Taste of coffee grounds to the forefront gradually joined by earthy, chocolate malts, a bit ash-like. Nice roasted bitter ending. Tasty brew (Leeds 01.07.2013).

Bottle from brewery drunk at home. Black beer with lasting beige head. Black IPA aroma but definitely with a lot of coffee. Smooth as hell in the mouth, with a lot more coffee. Some hops but they are there to compliment the coffee. Rich coffee, rich mouthfeel. Really very good if you like coffee which I do a lot.

Bottle. Opaque dark brown beer, big pale tan head. Palate is smooth and dry. Fine minerally carbonation. Some creamy malt goes well with the coffee. The coffee has a strong presence but it is mellow tasting., light espresso. The hops are lightly citric and bitter. Finishes dry. Of the handfull of Coffee IPAs I’ve come across this is the most coffee dominated.

Keg at Brewdog Shoreditch. Dark brown with medium head. Reasonable amount of lacing. Loads of pine and hops on the nose with coffee traces. Flavour is dominated by the coffee. Bitter aftertaste. Feels like there's quite a bit of carbonation. Overall good stuff but would like to try the bottle conditioned version. Suspect that would deliver even more.

Keg @ Tap East Fest then again @ CBC’s 2nd Birthday Party. The pour’s hazy, murky brown with a small head. The nose is rich roasted coffee. Dank pacific hoppy aromas. Loads of pinecone, wet tropical undergrowth, sea grass. The taste is a similar marriage of strong roasted coffee flavors and assertive grassy hoppiness. Strong dark roast coffee on the dry finish. Hints of tasted hazelnut, some orange peel. Medium body, full on the palate. Overall, this is definitely full of personality.
