On tap @ the Stockbridge Tap. This really did give me such a pleasant surprise. Recently I’ve 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 it’s clear that the brewer has a very good palate. I will look out for their beers in future.

Auburn coloured ale, no head. Has an aroma that does include both nut and coffee, although it’s the former that is more apparent in taste.

29.03.2013. 0,5l Bottle. Thanks to Gunnar! @tkk. Hazelnut coffee brown. Dark amber colour with off-white head. Aroma of dark and mild sweet malt. Rather soft beer with medium body. Flavours of dark faintly roasted malts. Moderate to low bitterness. Notes off sweet coffee back there together with some dark syrup flavours. Very soft beer.

Cask at CPK, London. Meet the brewer event. It pours clear deep ruby/brown with a small bubbly beige head. Aroma is sweet malts and hazelnut. Taste is sweet with dark malts, molasses, hazelnut and some crushed coffee beans. Thin in the mouth with soft carbonation. Overall, good but not outstanding.

500ml bottle - Ruby red colour with frothy, white head. Fairly pale for a porter. Malty, roasted nose with fresh coffee and nuts. Malty, slightly roasted taste with coffee and hazelnuts. Tasty, a bit like one of those infused coffees from Starbucks. Interesting.

Bottle bought at Huddersfield Beer Festival. Hazelnut coffee aroma come through strongly. Ruby brown colour with a head that stays. Unusual, but enjoyable.
