3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle conditioned, 500ml from Beers of Europe, Norfolk. Deep brownt to black with ruby hue and beige head. Quite a thinnish beer on the palate with a weak coffee note, cold dregs. Chocolate malts, grainy, some sweetness, light, could do with a little more body.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark brown with very small tan head that is gone quickly. Very faint aroma and tastes of roasted malt and light fruits and a touch of vanilla. Not much there but not bad either.

(Bottled) A coffee porter according to my bottle , its not mentioned on the database ; I could happily drink this for breakfast . nose is coffee roast and floral hops. subtle beige head ,you know what porter looks like ; coffee accented palate , but not relentless in expression. Nice.

Bottle from Beers of Europe. Dark brown colour, some off-white bubbles. Aroma is light roasted malts and sweet vanilla. Flavour is light roasted malts, bit of chocolate, vanilla, little fruitiness. Light bodied. A bit disappointing.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Weirdly bubble and it looks like a coke. The nose is a very subtle cherry fruit aroma with plenty of maltiness. In the mouth smooth malt and fresh cherry fruit take hold giving a big sweetness with a light burnt bitterness in the finish. It is gluggably thin. Far from what I imagined but...pleasant.

[bottle @ RBESG 2009, Grand Tasting]
Toasty nuts and sherry-like nutty aroma. Almost clear dark chestnut under wisps and ring. Smokey coffee flavour that has a coffee bitterness and roasted barley vanilla, though a little thin. Light body, moderate carbonation, slightly bitter finish.
