3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Fyne Ales’ brewery tap. Black body with a thick beige head. Good lacing. Aroma of Twiglets, black cherry, coffee and blueberry. Flavour of burnt toast, brambles, peppery spice, espresso and ash. Thin to medium body with a smooth texture. Very bitter and dry - it doesn’t quite gel, in my opinion.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thuizz. Koffie smaak is goed maar de combi van koffie, stout en bitter van de hop blijft moeilijk en geeft een ondefinieerbare (na)smaak. Backlog from 2015/06/09.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Coffee and alcohol in the nose. Coffee and alcohol in the taste, along with some toffee, caramel notes. Watery mouthfeel and sweet aftertaste, the alcohol overly present. Ok, but nothing spectacular.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate. Nothing else really, rather one dimensional.
Dark brown/black beer with a small brown head.
Starts slightly sweet and medium bitter. Stays rather the same throughout the beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black colored, some sediment, medium creamy tan head, nice lacing and good lasting. Aroma is mostly strong ground coffee, some roasted malt. Taste is medium sweet caramel, chocolate, some roasted malt, strong coffee, light+ coffee acidity, dry bitter coffee finish and lasting aftertaste. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Coffee is dominating here, so if you don’t want coffee in your beer avoid this one... me, I like it!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. Almost black with short lasting fizzy brown head. Lots of very nice sweet coffee beans, roasted malts, dark chocolate, dried apple, fresh berries, light bitter hops and light tropical fruits. Light sweet with under medium bitterness. Medium bodied with slick almost watery feel. Nice stuff, slightly too watery maybe but the coffee works very well here.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dutch coffee porter with Guatemala coffee. Moussy and fairly thick, lacing, yellow beige head, eventually dissipating completely, over a very dark mahogany coloured beer, hazy, blackish at first but still well transparent. Strong, aromatic, tangy bouquet of indeed coffee beans and espresso, beautifully mingled with dark baker’s chocolate, smoked meat, bayleaf, dried grapefruit peel, black tea, beef broth, candied figs, dried plums, baked banana, kahlua, black pepper, cumin seed, cocoa powder and a touch whisky. Smooth, creamy onset of candied fruits but only restrainedly sweet, dried stonefruit and raisins, deep basic sourishness with a certain dried lemon peel quality to it, soft carbo, oily and supple, ’fatty’ mouthfeel but not too viscous, nice toasted, caramelly, nutty and eventually more and more chocolatey maltiness, layered but not too demanding, accompanied by a gentle coffee flavour in the end, warm and roasted, juicy still with a subtle candied sweetness all along; finish also has peppery hop bitterness and nice smooth caramel plus a touch smokiness and ’meatiness’. Alcohol remains perfectly hidden. Lovely porter, and the coffee does add an extra layer of flavour; there are no off-flavours either. Clearly well thought out, I like this a lot.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle pours black in color with a finger of light brown head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is coffee and dark roasted grains with hints of dark chocolate. Taste is a roasted grain and pronounced coffee bitterness with a chocolate malty sweetness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. Overall, a little bit dominant in coffee flavor (I am not a fan of coffee), but overall, a quality crafted brew and worth checking out, that is if you like coffee.
