crowcat (2) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2014 does not count
Looks beautiful, unfortunately very sweet and quite synthetic tasting, like hazelnut syrup has been poured into your beer! A memorable beer nonetheless

TBone (12992) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 1, 2014
Bottled at Hell Hunt. Deep ruby brown color, small firm beige head. Artificial chocolate aroma, light grassy notes. Medium-bodied. Artificial chocolate flavor too with late grassy bitterness. Not my cup of tea.

Garrold (1710) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle from Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Unporterish dark red. Halo of tan head. Nutty, sweet milk chocolate aroma. Coffee not discernible. Taste is initially syrupy sweet, with a bitter palate and aftertaste. Iíve had a lengthy beer day, and this was a bit clacky to wind things up. Bad choice, on my part..

marulla (82) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 3, 2013
Had it from the tap and maybe thats why the aroma wasnít as strong, but generally a great beer. Really good taste, strong nutty flavours, smooth drinking, not too gassy. Sold out the night i was at the pub, speaks for itself

Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 25, 2013
500ml bottle from Bradleyís. Pours a clear reddish brown with no head. Looks like a pint of Coke. Nice aroma of chocolate, hazelnut and toffee. Flavour is sweet, with lots of nutty chocolate notes, and a sweet coffee taste. Smooth and soft carbonation with a sweet coffee finish. Nothing totally spectacular but pretty nice and interesting.

Pizd (432) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2013
(Bottle): Pours a clear brown with an off white head. Aroma of nuts, coffee, malt. Overly sweet and tacky taste of nuts, slight coffee and malt. Leaves a horrid aftertaste and the beer does not resemble a porter, itís more of a brown ale (a not very good brown ale at that).

mr_h (3084) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - AUG 28, 2013
Cask by handpump at Henglerís Circus, Glasgow - clear amber brown, good creamy beige head, coffee aroma, thin film of lacing, sweet, initial coffee hit, nice subtle balance, very easy to drink

On tap @ the Stockbridge Tap. This really did give me such a pleasant surprise. Recently Iíve been getting quite bored with coffee porters or stouts as I find them a little one dimensional. The hazelnut has produced the extra dimension on this occasion. The proportions of coffee and hazelnut really have been applied with a deft touch and itís clear that the brewer has a very good palate. I will look out for their beers in future.
