Keg at Craft Beer Rising. A deep brown colour with a medium tan head. Aroma of fresh coffee, steamed milk, some chocolate, vanilla, a little caramel and subtle earth. Taste of coffee, chocolate, milk, some vanilla, slight caramel and subtle fruit. Full bodied and soft carbonation. A dryish, latte bitterness in the finish. The closest you are going to get to tiramisu in beer. Latte aroma and flavour with that chocolate and caramel extra. Very good. johancederholm (61) - - FEB 14, 2018

Opaque colour, small steady brownish head. Aroma has sweet mudcake coffee and vanilla. Full-bodied. Roasted coffee and vanilla flavous. Delicate. A bit of Omnipollo NOA style in this one.

2 finger creamy, tan head.
Close to pitch black beer.NordicV (2668) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - DEC 4, 2017
Aroma is toffee, dark roast coffee, vanilla, oak barrel, dark chocolate and cream.
Taste is espresso, cream, toffee, vanilla and a hint of dried dark fruits.
Mouthfeel is on the thinner side but has a decent smoothness to it. Low carbonation. Medium coffee bitterness. Good stickiness. No real pure alcohol in this, rather it has some nice whisky notes.
Overall: Haven't heard of Hawkshead Brewery before but everytime Cigar City is in on a stout, it turns out great. Expected some sort of pastry stout but it was a lot more on the roasted side with a great accompanying sweetness that never took over. The downside to this beer was clearly the mouthfeel, too thin but compensated for with smoothness, stickiness and a nice bitterness. Great stuff!
Mörkt brun mot svart öl med ett ljusbrunt skum. En god öl men så mycket Tiramisu är det inte. Det är mest kaffedelen som framträder. Övriga smaker är choklad och vanilj. HULK777 (647) - - NOV 23, 2017
Vanilla, milk chocolates, and cream aroma. Taste is creamy coffee, chocolates, and vanilla. Sweet. Almost too sweet.
