Ungstrup (35675) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 1, 2010
Bottled. A dark brown beer with a huge dark brown head. The aroma has notes of vinegar, roasted malt, and coffee. The flavor is sweet with notes of coffee, coconut, roasted malt, and citrus, leading to a dry, bitter finish where the coconut and coffee lingers. Odd - cant really come to terms with all the different flavors, but interesting.

Opaque black beer, light brown head. Sourish - almost lambic nose with a hint of coca cola! Light softish palate. Rich complex beer. Coffee - soft with a rich Porter like tang is the first thing that hits you. The mid brings nuttyness. Coconut sublte in the background. Despite all the extra ingredients this is still clearly a porter and a fine tasting one.

Tasting at Paps
Black color. Aroma of coffee and coffee dregs. The coffee flavor is disturbing, the coconut flavor is disturbing; the body is slim; strong ending bitterness and more ashes then; light tar and light sourness. Im a bitch today, but this beer is disgusting.

A: I poured this into my Cigar City snifter to reveal a thick, black, beer with a small mocha colored head. S: The coffee is very dominant in this beer. It overwhelms the other scents at first. However, a bit of sniffing lets the chocolatey porter aromas come through, and the coconut really lends the beer a sweet smell. The nuttiness from the macadamia nuts is present, but mild. T: As with the nose, the coffee flavor is really the star of the show. The coconut gives the beer a definite sweetness, and becomes more pronounced as the beer warms up. The macadamia nut is also subdued when the beer is chilled, but allow it to come closer to room temperature and it makes an appearance. There is a slight bitterness, which I assume is from the coffee, but it is balanced nicely by the coconut. M: This beer has a nice viscosity to it and a smooth mouthfeel. The carbonation is much higher than you would have expected, but it provides a nice contrast. D: Im generally not the biggest coffee fan, but I am in love with this beer. There are such a variety of flavors and aromas that make it such an interesting beer to drink. Im glad Ive got a few more stashed away.

bhensonb (14482) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 4, 2009
Bottle from Beverages4Less. Pours quite black with a fluffy 2-finger tan head. Lots of coffee aroma. Perhaps a hint of chocolate. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is strong, dark cofffee, almost approaching espresso. There is a strong suggestion of milk chocolate. Finishes towards dry. Theres bitter, and I dont think its the coffee. Finishes much like a very good cup of coffee. With chocolate! Late note: It took quite awhile, but I now get the macadamia nut. Lends sort of a greasy/creamy aspect. Coffee and chocolate still seem primary though.

Tmoney99 (13894) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2009
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate roasted coffee and coconut aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted coffee and coconut sweet flavor with a medium to heavy oily bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Good complex brew.
