Clear dark brown beer. Light tan head. Lovely chocolate nose with some coffee in there as well. Light semi dry palate. Rich coffee and chocolate well integrated with some tangy dark fruits - blackcurrant, cherry. Cocoa chocolate. All very well joined up and balanced. Dry finish. Rich and very tasty.

FatPhil (9407) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 16, 2010
Cask (White Horse, Parson’s Green, London)
8 Wow. Just wow. They have of course "cheated" and just added coffee, but it fits the stout perfectly.
5 Black, tan head
8 Stunning, the coffee is so well integrated in the beer. Some creamy banana milkshake too, and a touch of vanilla.
5 So smooth, so full, and with so many intricate aspects. Finish is roasty - coffee with cream!
16 If you are going to do a gimick (add an unusual beer ingredient) then do it well. On the coffee front, Mikkeller’s Bear Geek Brunch Weasel now has a rival - and I think this might be the winner.
