COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: En stor og kraftig Porter med en umiskendelig og lækker kaffearoma. En blød og lækker øl, selvom den med sine knap 10 % er en kraftig herre. Både Cascade og Simcoe skinner fint igennem de ristede elementer og blander sig dejligt med den ristede aroma og kaffen.

English: It’s a beer that’s been thought about for quite some time – actually since the brewers first visit to Sherbrooke Liquor in Edmonton, AB, Canada a few years back, and finally I did it – I manned up and did it! After a whole freaking day of brewing coffee for this beer I can truly say it is Craft. If not devoted to the product who in their right mind would brew hundreds of litres of coffee for a beer? The result is a big and bold smooth Porter with discrete vanilla and coffee notes.
Hops: Magnum, Nelson Sauvin Malts: Pilsner, Caramel, Rye, Oats, Chocolate, Black, Vanilla and coffee.

Craft Clerkenwell tasting. Opaque dark brown - black beer. Big pale tan head. Traces of coffee and vanilla amid the semi dry dark malts. Finishes dry with some alcohol warmth. Okay if a bit clunky.

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 6, 2012
Draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen
Black color, with a nice creamy beige head. The aroma is coffee, just coffee, burnt malt and ashes; not really what a beer is supposed to be, but for sure something that works well in Scandinavia. The body is thinner than expected, at this gravity. Basic flavor of coffee, coffee grounds, dust, burnt malts, ashes. Can’t really call it "Imperial Vanilla Coffee Porter", it’s more a "Dusty Coffee Beer".
I can see the direction this is going to, but I don’t like that direction.
