The pour reveals a pitch black color with small brown highlights and a medium brown head. The aroma has rich coffee and roasted malt. Very good flavor of coffee and roasted malt with a dry, bitter finish. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. This is a kick-ass coffee porter.

Wonderful coffee porter. Lots of...coffee and chocolate. Only 6.5 % abv but it feels like a imperial porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tfredvik (1788) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 19, 2012
Black body with a light-brown head that is fairly long-lived, good lacing. Strong burnt, dry, ashy aroma with coffee and quite much yeast that is slightly metallic. Light sweet taste with a light bitter finish, also some very light sour notes. Flavours are cold and cheap filter coffee, yeast, ash and some faint berries. Medium body, dry texture, soft carbonation. A good one, but I had expected more. On the other hand, my palate was probably pretty screwed up by lots of tasting of homebrewed IPAs before I had this one.

Delicious. Basically black with inch of nice foam. Chocolate, toast, coffee run the show - nothing overpowering, all very well blended and balance. Sweetness/bitterness/coffee/etc. Tasted like good coffee too. Id drink the beer without the coffee and the coffee without the beer. Together is awesome. Finely balanced, tons of flavour, proof it doesnt have to be 10%+ abv to be so flavourful. Fiance who doesnt like dark beer or coffee gave it the thumbs up - they must be doing something right.

Bottle from a trade with seor Palme. Straightaway my overall impression: I sincerely believe a porter cant get any better than that. Almost black with a rather big head that managed to survive until the end of my rather long, extremely satisfying date with this beauty. Aroma is full-blown top quality coffee, black olives, licorice, port wine, pumpernikel bread, roasted malt, forest fruit and chocolate-coated marchpane. Rich, rich, rich. The rather high carbonation works surprisingly well here, the beer is not too heavy on the palate and at the same time deep in the flavour. Coffee, roasted malt and black olives are the main flavour ingredients, followed by an aftertaste of coffee, marchpane, roasted malt, pumpernikel bread and black olives. A masterpiece!

Bottle. Massive black body, medium thick beige head. Aroma is roasty, lots of coffee. Taste is also roasty with coffee, berries, chocolate. Warm feeling, notes of alcohol, lasting dry finish.

Really good coffee porter. The pour is purely black with a finger of dark tan head. The nose is sweet, hugely robust and well roasted. Big coffee torrefaction notes, dark chocolate and a few dark fruity notes. The taste is rather sweet and a big dessert richness in the middle. The finish has an impending roast with huge robust malts and espresso bitterness lingering into the aftertaste. A few caramel cola like notes also noted duly. Overall a fantastic coffee beer.

anders8000 (390) - aarhus.c., DENMARK - OCT 8, 2012
Nice porter with strong coffee notes and a surprising acidity to its aroma that reminds me of chili. I loved that bit. Nice thick head and a good medium length aftertaste. I liked it a lot.

500ml bottle pours a dark brown color with a 2 finger light beige head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark chocolate and coffee with some interesting hop notes. Taste is a dark chocolate malty sweetness with some coffee and hop bitterness. Medium bodied with some nice carbonation leaving a good prickle on the tongue. Flavors are nicely balanced making this a world class brew and is highly recommended.
