(Ugly Duck Imperial Vanilla Coffee Porter) Bottle 330 ml, from a trade with humlelala, thanks! Served into a snifter ABV 10%
Black colour on the body with a full finger of thick, beige head, with very good retention. Medium lacing on the glass.
Aroma has tons of coffee, roasted malts, light vanilla, some alcohol after a deep sniff, some hops.
Really great taste, again lots of coffee, lots of roasted malts, alcohol present but without any burning, on the contrary compliments the beer, much more vanilla now.
Medium thick body, soft carbonation, smooth and creamy feeling on the palate.

Very nice Vanilla smell which make it promising. No foam. Short in taste. But quite ordinary and flat.

Opaque black with a tinge of brown. Practically no head on this beer. Aroma is malts and liquorice. Taste is vanilla, chocolate milkshake and slightly bitter. Well balanced and has a good body. Reminds me of a choco milkshake somewhat. 33cl bottle

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice dark brown/black color and a sticky light brown head. Aroma of bitter coffee, dried fruit, alcohol, chocolate and vanilla - just a bit more vanilla would have been nice though. Quite creamy mouthfeel, loads of bitter roasted coffee, chocolate, vanilla and some hops. Very good beer indeed

En god øl. Kaffen er meget markant, men heldigvis god kaffe. Både malt og humle er fremtrædende. En aroma af kaffe, lakrids, vanilje, mørk chokolade, tørret frugt. En godt humlet porter.

Drucken på ölmässan, Stockholm. Rolig tanke men blir inte alls bra i praktiken. Besviken på det mesta här förutom alkoholstyrkan som tyvärr känns.

Tap@ølhus cph. Black, creamy head. Soft roasty, light leathery, dry chocolate, malty sweet vanilla nose. Full supersmooth soft body. Very nice mouthfeel. Soft, creamy, slight sweet roasty. No sign, at all, of the abv. Just malty creamy smoothness. Best stuff I’ve had in a while (since last sun, to be exact..)

Bottle. Black with a brown head. Sweet vanilla and chocolate scent with some alcohol. Flavor is slightly sweet with notes of chocolate and roasted coffee and malt. Not awesome but highly drinkable.
