Black colored, some sediment, medium creamy tan head, nice lacing and good lasting. Aroma is mostly strong ground coffee, some roasted malt. Taste is medium sweet caramel, chocolate, some roasted malt, strong coffee, light+ coffee acidity, dry bitter coffee finish and lasting aftertaste. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Coffee is dominating here, so if you don’t want coffee in your beer avoid this one... me, I like it! Maakun (6340) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2015
Bottle at home. Almost black with short lasting fizzy brown head. Lots of very nice sweet coffee beans, roasted malts, dark chocolate, dried apple, fresh berries, light bitter hops and light tropical fruits. Light sweet with under medium bitterness. Medium bodied with slick almost watery feel. Nice stuff, slightly too watery maybe but the coffee works very well here. Alengrin (5639) - BELGIUM - JUL 23, 2015
Dutch coffee porter with Guatemala coffee. Moussy and fairly thick, lacing, yellow beige head, eventually dissipating completely, over a very dark mahogany coloured beer, hazy, blackish at first but still well transparent. Strong, aromatic, tangy bouquet of indeed coffee beans and espresso, beautifully mingled with dark baker’s chocolate, smoked meat, bayleaf, dried grapefruit peel, black tea, beef broth, candied figs, dried plums, baked banana, kahlua, black pepper, cumin seed, cocoa powder and a touch whisky. Smooth, creamy onset of candied fruits but only restrainedly sweet, dried stonefruit and raisins, deep basic sourishness with a certain dried lemon peel quality to it, soft carbo, oily and supple, ’fatty’ mouthfeel but not too viscous, nice toasted, caramelly, nutty and eventually more and more chocolatey maltiness, layered but not too demanding, accompanied by a gentle coffee flavour in the end, warm and roasted, juicy still with a subtle candied sweetness all along; finish also has peppery hop bitterness and nice smooth caramel plus a touch smokiness and ’meatiness’. Alcohol remains perfectly hidden. Lovely porter, and the coffee does add an extra layer of flavour; there are no off-flavours either. Clearly well thought out, I like this a lot. reebtogi (6350) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 22, 2015
330ml bottle pours black in color with a finger of light brown head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is coffee and dark roasted grains with hints of dark chocolate. Taste is a roasted grain and pronounced coffee bitterness with a chocolate malty sweetness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. Overall, a little bit dominant in coffee flavor (I am not a fan of coffee), but overall, a quality crafted brew and worth checking out, that is if you like coffee. gegwilson (3784) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2015
Bottle in the Marketplace Ale House, Doncaster. deep brown with a thin cream head. Sweet chocolate and coffee aroma. The taste is sweet coffee. A little cola too. Soft carbonation leaving it feeling a touch thin. Very tasty otherwise.

Bottle @ Delirium Hoppy Loft, Brussels 14/5-15. A lot of coffee, also roasted malt and chocolate. Body is medium, dry finish with coffee. Barrelbelly (750) - BELGIUM - JUL 2, 2015
Pitch black with medium head. Espresso, excessive in aroma and taste. Very long bitter aftertaste. A bit too much bitter coffee. mateuszk (2757) - Poznań, POLAND - JUL 1, 2015
Draught. Black in colour, beige creamy head. Aroma of black malts, caramel, ash and very distinct notes of coffee which could be of a bit better quality. In taste semi sweet, roasty from coffee with acidic finish. Medium bodied, medium bitterness. Nice stout. Neorej80 (498) - - JUN 30, 2015
Don’t know why i didn’t rate this, but drank a few of them.. not too much. It’s a bit too much cappucino. The coffee quality seems to be poor. It’s too sweet and and like a cheap coffee with a decent nice dark beer. A pity.. minutemat (5942) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2015
330ml bottle @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours black with creamy tan head. Aroma is bitter coffee, liquorice and caramel. Taste follows with a big coffee influence. Tasty.
