crowcat (2) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2014 does not count
Looks beautiful, unfortunately very sweet and quite synthetic tasting, like hazelnut syrup has been poured into your beer! A memorable beer nonetheless

TBone (17699) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 1, 2014
Bottled at Hell Hunt. Deep ruby brown color, small firm beige head. Artificial chocolate aroma, light grassy notes. Medium-bodied. Artificial chocolate flavor too with late grassy bitterness. Not my cup of tea.

Garrold (5341) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle from Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Unporterish dark red. Halo of tan head. Nutty, sweet milk chocolate aroma. Coffee not discernible. Taste is initially syrupy sweet, with a bitter palate and aftertaste. I’ve had a lengthy beer day, and this was a bit clacky to wind things up. Bad choice, on my part..

Had it from the tap and maybe thats why the aroma wasn’t as strong, but generally a great beer. Really good taste, strong nutty flavours, smooth drinking, not too gassy. Sold out the night i was at the pub, speaks for itself

3.5
Creedence (312) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 25, 2013
500ml bottle from Bradley’s. Pours a clear reddish brown with no head. Looks like a pint of Coke. Nice aroma of chocolate, hazelnut and toffee. Flavour is sweet, with lots of nutty chocolate notes, and a sweet coffee taste. Smooth and soft carbonation with a sweet coffee finish. Nothing totally spectacular but pretty nice and interesting.

2.8
Pizd (435) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2013
(Bottle): Pours a clear brown with an off white head. Aroma of nuts, coffee, malt. Overly sweet and tacky taste of nuts, slight coffee and malt. Leaves a horrid aftertaste and the beer does not resemble a porter, it’s more of a brown ale (a not very good brown ale at that).

3.7
mr_h (5642) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - AUG 28, 2013
Cask by handpump at Hengler’s Circus, Glasgow - clear amber brown, good creamy beige head, coffee aroma, thin film of lacing, sweet, initial coffee hit, nice subtle balance, very easy to drink

On tap @ the Stockbridge Tap. This really did give me such a pleasant surprise. Recently I’ve been getting quite bored with coffee porters or stouts as I find them a little one dimensional. The hazelnut has produced the extra dimension on this occasion. The proportions of coffee and hazelnut really have been applied with a deft touch and it’s clear that the brewer has a very good palate. I will look out for their beers in future.

ManVsBeer (10675) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2013
Auburn coloured ale, no head. Has an aroma that does include both nut and coffee, although it’s the former that is more apparent in taste.

3.8
RuneStumo (2687) - Haugesund, NORWAY - APR 4, 2013
29.03.2013. 0,5l Bottle. Thanks to Gunnar! @tkk. Hazelnut coffee brown. Dark amber colour with off-white head. Aroma of dark and mild sweet malt. Rather soft beer with medium body. Flavours of dark faintly roasted malts. Moderate to low bitterness. Notes off sweet coffee back there together with some dark syrup flavours. Very soft beer.
