grimnortherner (4) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2013 does not count
bottle (takeaway) from craft, clerkenwell. drank one on launch night and had to have more. the coffee was really punchy then. a few weeks down the road and now the coffee has died down to leave a great, earthy porter. still lots of coffee in there and really dark, black chocolate. i am left buzzing from the caffeine. darkest, deepest black with a head that quickly recedes to the sides and paints the glass each time you sip. more like the crema of an espresso than the head of a beer. aroma hangs around and you know that you are drinking something with really good quality coffee inside as soon as the glass gets close. mouthwateringly sweet, and at the same time an earthy bitterness holds it down. some of the big coffee flavour has been lost in the bottle. coffee grounds, burnt apple tart. pure cocoa. so bitter that it comes out the other side into sweetness. light fizziness which seems to combine with the caffeine and makes the back of my mouth tingle, before helping to clear all the earthiness off my palate and making way for a melody of finish flavours. touches a few familiar flavours and some very unusual ones. seems to work though and great fun to drink. bonfire toffee, toasted marshmallow. sour cream. thoroughly enjoyable and looking forward to more from these guys.

jackl (7166) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 5, 2012
Bottle @ CBC Clerkenwell. The pours deep brown with a small modest tan head. The nose is strong roasted coffee, some sharp chocolate and general ashy aromas. The taste is quite coffee-forward. Plenty of dry roasted espresso bitterness. Light chocolate with just a hint of berry. Dry finish. Medium body, smooth. Overall, very coffee dominant, but not bad.

Leighton (19499) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2012
Bottle shared at Craft Beer Co. - Clerkenwell, London. Pours rich brown with a thick, beige cream head. Huge coffee nose with hints of roasted malts and dark cocoa poking through. Medium sweet flavor with just tons of coffee. Background notes of roasted malts, dark fruits. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Rich, medium sweet finish, with dark chocolate, massive coffee. You must enjoy coffee to enjoy this beer. Its almost like drinking an espresso, and at times you may forget its actually a beer. Anyway, its good stuff.
