3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2012 on tap at dejavu. Pours a near pitch black body with a creamy white head. Aromas of espresso, kahula and chocolate with notes of caramel and biscuit. The taste is something I’d never experienced in a beer before. Was basically like drinking an espresso martini in a beer. Lots of coffee!! Went down real fast. Awesome Porter

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours black with a light tan head.
Loads of coffee in the aroma, very rich, but with a faint hint of old grounds. Little else detectable underneath that.
Same story with the flavours - the base beer is too weak to contend the with the overt coffee flavours.
Body feels a bit watery.
Despite being perfectly enjoyable I can’t help but think how much better this would be if the base beer had a little more guts.
