Cuckoo for cacao? Good beer for coffee heads, but a bit sweet to my tastes. Nice in a flight size serving, but I didn’t crave the pint.

Dark brown. Sweet cocoa aroma. Taste- mocha favor, roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. A quality porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep opaque mahogany, light tan head. Roast espresso, light cocoa. Signifantly bitter, drier body. Long coffee finish with a lingering hint of vanilla, medium body, fairly effervescent. Pretty good, coffee overpowers the vanilla and cacao unfortunately.

Pours a deep brown with a tan lacing. The aroma is cocoa, coffee, and toasty malt with a flavor of cocoa, dark malt, vanilla and a chocolate finish over a medium body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft during Madison Craft Beer Week. Huge coffee aroma. Like being in a Starbucks. Awesome coffee taste. Love the vanilla and cacao nibs. Turned it into an awesome mocha style beer.

Outside Kihoskh, CPH, whilst running the Mikkeller 5K 03/04/15. Rich brown with a big old tan head. Nose is biscuit, chocolate malt, light coffee, earthy, trace of vanilla. Taste comprises chocolate biscuit, caramel, light coffee grinds, fruit cake crumbs. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with light hop notes. Solid brown, plenty of flavour.

sudomorph (889) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2015
Draft at Surly. Pours a deep caramel/brown with a finger of light tan head that coats the glass. Aroma is rich and slightly smoky with dark chocolate, caramel, woody nut shells, and espresso. Taste is balanced. Starts put with dark chocolate and vanilla, then moves to rich chocolate and coffee, then ends creamy with more espresso and vanilla on the ending. Bit of fruity yeast influence as well. Medium-full body with a low-medium carbonation. Fairly clean in the mouth with a soft carbonation. Overall very nice. Dark and rich chocolate mixed with vanilla, coffee, and a touch of fruity yeast.
