AWISLguy (2652) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Bomber from Ray’s in Tosa. Pours very dark brown with a light brown head. Nice lacing. Aroma - HELLO COFFEE! Aroma has in your face coffee, with chocolate, roasted maltiness and faint nuts. Lovely. Taste has bitter expresso beans, roast and faint sweet chocolate. Slightly rough. Finishes mostly coffee bitter with some sweetness under. This is a nice porter!

MelvinKalksma (1109) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - OCT 30, 2016

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, vanilla, cookies, chocolate, roasted malts and coffee.

Appearance:
Opaque black beer with a slight/medium brown head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, vanilla, cookies and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts and coffee.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Super smooth and the added coffee adds so much flavour. The sweet start also benefits from this, where the loads of vanilla plus the coffee creates some damn tasty chocolate chip cookies. The aroma could have been stronger and the taste even better with some more beer ingredients.

poech73 (376) - Braine, BELGIUM - AUG 12, 2016
From 9th Beer Testing Evening @ Beer Market (Big Black) :: Porter aromatisé-- L’ajout de café à froid rend cette bière fort aromatique. tant au nez qu’au palais sur tout le long de la dégustation. Cette mouture torréfiée supplémentaire apporte une sensation bien dense de Stout ainsi que pas mal de saveurs chocolatées à la noisette cependant sans vraiment contre balancer le fort maltage caramélisé puisqu’il laisse un arrière-goût gras un peu écœurant sur les papilles.

Keg at The Brewdog, Norwich. Black with tan head. Quite a full on bitter beer, drying, darkly roasted malts, quite tarry with a liquorice edge. Nutty later on. Pretty decent.

Fine carbonation, smooth-silky, surprisingly slender bodied. Light chocolate sweetness with roast coffee and burnt toffee bitterness, well balanced. lasting bit astringnent-coffee finish.
