INDASTRIA (129) - Berlin & Rome, GERMANY - NOV 21, 2011
Bottle @ Bir&Fud Bottega.Solid black color; No reflex, no see-through. Beige too massive creamy head. strong liquorice aroma at first (not a good start) then not very intense coffee, chocolate, malt, herbs and just a little bit of lilquorice.. The taste is chocolate, coffee, much malt. The finish is bitter and sweet. This one is a very very good, enjoyable and well done porter/sout. The only issue is the name: "costa rica" puts your expectation of a strong coffee aroma and taste on the highest level. But it totally misses the goal IMO.

Bottle, bought @ Skjold Burne, Roskilde.
Pours opaque black with a big, creamy, beige head. Lovely duration. Aroma has lots of fresh coffee, a bit of roasted malts, soft peppery herbal notes. Chocolate sweetness. Wonderful coffee, really. Medium to high carbonation, nice full and soflty creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is elegant, sweet chocolate dominates, but also dry coffee, light chili pepper notes, liqourice and sweet caramel. A really well-balanced coffee porter.

joeneugs (6231) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 16, 2011
On draft at the Livermore Saloon. It pours light brown with a khaki head. The aroma is subdued with brown, chocolate, and light roasted malts. Hints of coffee. The flavor is very smoky with brown sugar, smoke, ham and a campfire finish. Dang, I would have bet this was a smoked beer. Pretty good stuff.

Foffern (1762) - Bod, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2011
Colour is deep dark brown to black. Hazy. The head is beige and big, but disapears and stays as a thin layer for a while. The Aroma is dominated by roasty coffee and chocolate. The taste reflects the aromas with sweet and dark chocolate. Ends with medium bitternes along with a coffee. A really good beer on a dark autumn night.

Bottle enjoyed at home
Pours dark brown, black in glass, leaves a head that is massive but with large ugly bubbles. What a shame. Aroma of coffee, smoke, tar and what i like to call yeast esters from HBs house yeast. I think i can find that same aroma from Hesjel, Norwegian Wood and Dobbel Dose at least. Taste has lots of actual coffee as expected, i also find coffe flavors from the roasted malts. Good malt body with nice amounts of sweetness. Also some tar and smoke. Nice oily feel thats finished off with a nice coffee bitterness
Also a celebration of my rate nr #500

berlinoise2go (689) - NORWAY - OCT 14, 2011
Bottle (50cl) from Vinmonopolet (Vika), Oslo. Inch-thick light brown head, good retention - leaves some flame-shaped lacing. Opaque, dark brown colour. Aroma of raw coffee beans, coffee candy, cola, roasted malt, licorice. Taste is surprisingly fruity, providing a nice and modestly sweet counterweight against the woody dryness of the malt/coffee/licorice. Body is medium, carbonation is soft. Very enjoyable.
