Dark brown color with ruby reflections. One to two fingers beige very inconsistent head. In aroma notes of: dark bread, roasted cake, sweet matls, bit of cherry and plums. Rather sweet, quite pleasant. In taste it’s completely different. All this sweet notes are now gone. It’s much more roasted and toasted. Has a touch of coffee and bitter chocolate. It can really reminds of mocha. Nice bitter finish in the aftertaste. It’s slightly over carbonated and I was expecting just a bit more thick and full mouthfeel. In overall it’s a very pleasant Saturday afternoon beer.

Pours a dark murky brown. About two fingers frothy, foamy head, like a mocha. Okay head retention, okay lacing.

Aroma is chocolatey, not so much coffee. I smell a lot of raisins and plums. I also smell, almonds? Quite nice.

Taste is lightly chocolate, light instant coffee flavor. I taste some of the dark fruits, not much. It has some roastiness from the malts. Some bitterness, but really pretty well balanced. It’s pretty smooth.

Mouthfeel is medium body. Perhaps too much carbonation. But it’s smooth, easy to drink. Quite dry.

Overall, it’s good. I like it. It’s worthy of another try. It’s a little disappointing in the mocha taste, not there. It’s a little different, but good.

Drank with Thierry 18-2-2016 at my place. Pretty fine taste for such a low ABV beer. Okay.

HuskerTan (1450) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - FEB 15, 2016
Bottle. A- Subtle iron, chocolate, malty, mocha, dates, caramel. A- Dark brown color, dark liquid, off white head. T- Dark fruits, subtle mocha, chocolate, slightly sweet. P- Medium body, slightly thin texture, average carbonation, slightly watery finish. O- An interesting porter no doubt. Assumed it would be loaded with chocolate and coffee. Chocolate, yes. Coffee, not so much. More of a dark fruit and caramel tone to it. Pretty good albeit a bit thin on the body.

phfyysik (449) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JAN 29, 2016
Pours dark brown/black with big beige head. Aroma is very creamy, coffee, cocoa, caramel, some malts. Taste is also coffee-creamy, a bit milky, some sweetness and roasted bitterness. Quite watery and easy to drink. Little bit too balanced for me, but otherwise very nice easy drinkable coffee porter.

Bottle, 330ml. pours dark brown - black. Head is short pale beige. Nose is lovely, sweet dark malt, cherries, ripe fruit, caramel, slight hop scent, not much roasted scent. Mouth feel is watery with medium-thin body. Carbonation is soft bot notable. Tastes strongly bitter, mostly hop bitterness and slight roasted bitterness. Slightly sweet, very lightly acidic. Flavors of bitter hops, roasted malt, cherry, slight coffee-chocolate notes, some caramel. Nice, quite bitter, but not too much so, flavor is nice, but not very complex. Not highly roasted for a porter. Nice and strong overall.
