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.

Foffern (1227) - Bodø, NORWAY - SEP 16, 2014
Bottle at home. BB 2.7.2014. The colour is pitch black with a medium, creamy, khaki head. Immediately roasted aroma of coffee beans, very dark chocolate, leather, ash and soy sauce. More ash and roasted malt in the flavour along with chocolate truffles.Has a rich and soft mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. A rich, roasted and very nice ale.

Xavalias (154) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours very dark brown with a small frothy brown head, light persistence, lots of lacing. Some yeast pellet in the bottom of the glass. Nose of roasted malts, in the mouth likewise, with alcohol, caramel, light coffee, fruits, some vanilla, and some oak barrel smoothness. The taste is very smooth, medium sweet and medium to light bitter. Rather light bodied surprisingly watery. Nice, and easy going, but not quite as "big and bold" as promised, although the smoothness is definitely there.

ninecats (161) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - SEP 3, 2014
Backlog. Pours deep brown, almost black, with a two finger beige semi compact foam that dissipates slow and leaves no lacings. Aroma is dominated by coffee, roasted mocca beans, malt, slight liquorice. Taste is moderately bitter and sweet with roasted malt and coffee tones, chocolate, along with a slight hint of vanilla, and a tiny smokey hint. Big body, low to medium carbo, fairly light texture for such big body. Quite good, very coffee dominated.

POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2014
Coffee porter without vanilla flavor. Slightly offbeat and unbalanced. Very much coffee flavor.

Vestergaard (372) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2014
Tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours pitch black with a brown, fluffy, yet short lasting head. Aroma has toffee, mild roast, coffee, lots of vanilla, sweet light chocolate. Taste has lots of lightly roasted coffee, caramel and roasted malts, vanilla and a both hoppy and roasted bitterness. Very smooth body with medium carbonation. Easy drinking for it’s high abv, which is very well hidden.

DennisKirk (156) - DENMARK - AUG 10, 2014
Flaske 330 ml. Ser flot ud i glasset, sort med brunt beige farvet skum, som ligger i en god rums tid, dejlig mild aroma af blandt andet kaffe, vanilje og likør/ chokolade. Smagen minder om duften og er bare rigtig god ligesom konsistensen også er i top.

On tap at the Taphouse, Copenhagen. Dark brown pour with a beige head. Aromas of dark chocolate, coffee and licorice. Coffee, dark chocolate and raisin flavour. Very dry. Long, boozy finish. Tasty.

MichaelAwesome (4082) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 6, 2014
Good and strong one shared with McTapps. Thick and dark with big vanilla in the aroma accompanied by barley, malt and coffee. Hits you hard with its big abv but develops a pleasing feeling.

McTapps (4083) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle from a trade with Bamsen78 - thank you a lot,Marcin! The beer pours out in a deep black colour with low smooth head and smooth body. Aroma of malt, roast and a touch of vanilla. Taste of light Bourbon vanilla, malt, roasted barley, flowers, coffee and torf. Floral-mild finish. Enjoyed it.
