On tap at Dutch’s. Totally hazy dark brown color. Good bigger light brown head. Leaves great thicker lace. Awesome coffee in the nose, some dark chocolate. Medium plus body. Smooth, kind of creamy lighter carbonation. Light slick finish. Nice moderate sweet, lighter bitter taste. Impressive, tasty coffee porter. Good to wash down my mcd quarter pounder with (the QP itself was way subpar, though. They gypped me on the lettuce and tomato! WTF?!)

Draught at Embassy Hotel, Brisbane. Poured an opaque black with a thin light tan collar that laced OK. Aroma dominated by slightly roasted coffee plus a hint of dark chocolate. Taste intensely of sweet coffee plus a trace of chocolate. Light to medium body. Smooth, creamy, sweet with a pleasant coffee finish. Very nice!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap in sampler: Not getting all the love for this one. Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Taste is predominantly coffee, but with some chocolate, and lots of water. Mostly water actually. Thin body, not much going on here. It’s not bad, but it’s very lacking.
