Pours black with a tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long chocolate, coffee and caramel finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
The aroma is coffee and some malt - caramel, roast. Pours a dark brown with a medium tan head, somewhat lasting and excellent lacing. The taste is a medium bitter. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish bitter. Very good! tompete (349) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 3, 2017
Pours opaque black with a beige head. Aroma is rich with roastiness and coffee. Flavour is more coffee and a hint of chocolate. The body is refreshing and moderately thin. Finish is roast bitterness and dry. Yum.

Hmm well although this is good, this coffee-infused beer tends toward my less-preferred approach to the style, where the texture is rather thinned out and tastes slick and watery like actual cold brew coffee. From a can, this did pour a classic ruby-accented brown and black color with a rocky top of foam. Nice aroma of roasted malts and coffee beans, with a little chocolaty sweetness. As described on the can, this tastes literally like a roasty porter thinned out with some added coffee, which I simply don't find appealing. There's some roasty malt complexity, with some subtle fruity accents and notes of a quality espresso, but I personally prefer coffee flavors derived from the malt bill, not actual coffee. I would recommend Highland's Thunderstruck Coffee porter over this for a more subtle and balanced coffee-infused beer. Hanuta06 (488) - Washington, USA - NOV 12, 2017

Can at The Newcastle Tap, Newcastle Upon Tyne. Absolutely pitch black, with a tan head. Very nice looking beer. Good coffee, dark malt and toast aroma. Thinner than expected, it’s a bit sweet at first. That mellows out into bitter lingering notes. Aurelius (5589) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 21, 2017
Bad can. Inky pour with light khaki head which collapses pretty quickly. Nutty, lightly sweet, coffee roast aroma. Mellow acidic coffee up front, sugary in the middle, roasty. Much better slightly warm. Roast bitter aftertaste, sturdy body but not too heavy, slippery mouthfeel, good carbonation. Market Square Liquors, Tallahassee.
