thirstyrabbit (1109) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle. Copper body with a small head. Aroma has powdery cocoa and dried peas. Taste has sweet caramel with a teaspoonful of cocoa powder. This sounds like a rejected idea for a soft drink. I don’t get this beer at all. Maybe it’s because the label promised a porter (in CAPS!) and it’s clearly not a porter.

DandyLion (518) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2013
Cask @ the pub, Leicester. This beer is lovely. A hazelnut coffee porter that tastes like a cold hazelnut latte, I loved it a lot. I'd like it better perhaps with a bit more body- a stout would be amazing but it is delicious as it is. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

toffeeslot (118) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 23, 2012
Pours a nice colour, with some good nut and coffee aroma. Decent head off white. Taste is of roasted malts, coffee, vanilla and hazlenut. A bit like a ferro rocher chocolate :) Quite light body - would have preferred it a bit thicker. Good though.

Marduk (2791) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 22, 2012
500ml bottle. Deep redbrown color. Small head. Hazelnuts, malty, dusty, roast in aroma. Nutty, bit buttery, malty, slightly dry roast in flavor. Very drinkable beer!

FatPhil (9405) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 21, 2012
500ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
Super-nice hazelnut aroma. Some cocoa powder too. Sweet, sticky, cocao powder body. Taste also cocao powdery. Nice and drinkable, but the powdery nature of this is perhaps a bit too much.

planky84 (2113) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2012
Bottle from Mr Lawrence Wine Merchants, Brockley. Reddish-brown pour with a white head. Chocolate, nuts and light coffee aroma. Milk chocolate, light nuts and some coffee flavours. Not bad at all.

Theydon_Bois (9105) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2012
Cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green - 30/09/12. Dark mahogony brown with a thin han head. Nose was a little disappointing and muted. Roast malts and nuts. Tasted much better with dark roast malt prominent, hazelnut and light coffee tones. Medium to light in a body a little too thin and watery, another let down on this beer. Drinkable but could have been a few notches better!

Cask. Murky brown that looks like black coffee with a a spoonful or two of cream. Thin creamy beige head. Nose is coffee with milk, chocolate, port, berries. Taste is chocolate, cheap light coffee with milk, hazelnut, coffee cake, egg cream. Thin to medium body. I want a beer infused with coffee to be big and roasty. This definitely wasn’t that, but it was unique and good for warm seasons when you crave some coffee in your beer.

lembeek (143) - ITALY - SEP 1, 2012
Colore rosso/bruno, limpida, con una schiuma abbondante, cremosa e persistente. Aroma di malti tostati con note erbacee, di cioccolato, caffè e vaniglia. Attacco dolce, maltato, che lascia subito il posto a una buona acidità. Buon corpo e scarsa carbonatazione. Finale secco, amaro. Senzazioni retro olfattive di cioccolato e nocciole.

worldbeertaste (1670) - AUSTRIA - JUL 6, 2012
Pale brown with a thin tan quick disapearing head. Smells of caramel malt, roast, and cold weak coffee, and nut. Medium thin oily body. Tastes of cold coffee mixed with dark malt, and a malt, some roast. Sweet with a bitter burnt finsh. It would be good if it didnt taste so artificial.
