Coffee porter by this Scottish craft brewer, bottle at Kantien, Ghent. Moussy, pale yellow-tinged beige, creamy head with only a flat, grey veil in the middle, over a black beer with maroon brown edges. Aroma of a lot of cold black coffee and coffee grounds, toasted walnuts, beef stew, wet black chocolate bars, soggy tea bags, moist pipe tobacco, leather, bayleaf, veil stock, liquorice. Restrained raisin-y sweetishness in the onset (could have been more outspokenly sweet for me especially considering the use of demerara sugar), sourish roasted grains and a beef stock-like umami edge, medium carbonated with an oily, rounded and relatively thick mouthfeel, feels thicker than expected based on ABV. Smooth walnutty, black toast- and bitter chocolate-like maltiness, more bitter than sweet with a strong black coffee effect in the finish, a tad aromatic but more coming from roasted malts, pleasantly bittering in combination with a spicy, leafy hop bitterness; nutty flavours linger afterwards, hightlighted by a hint of warming, gin-like alcohol. Classically bitter porter with smoothly integrated coffee element, but I prefer coffee porters and stouts to be more delicately aromatic in the coffee department and that aspect was lacking a bit here; too much beef stock-like aromas as well for my liking. The full, pleasantly rounded body makes up for a lot, though I still fail to see how this ended up in RateBeer’s top 50 of porters, even if it is a very decent one…

Almogabar (122) - MARIA DE HUERVA (ZARAGOZA), SPAIN - MAR 28, 2018
Botella de 33 cl adquirida en la web store Entre Cervezas; cata de cervezas escocesas realizada en O Pipete (Zaragoza). Servida en copa de cristal y a una temperatura de servicio de 10-11 grados. Color café, oscura, con espuma color canela (tostada), abundante y que se disipa con lentitud. Retención media. Aromas a café principalmente, chocolate negro, coco. Sabor amargo, como el café, notas de chocolate negro puro, caramelo tostado. Predominio absoluto del café, con un final seco.

JorisPPattyn (10207) - BELGIUM - MAR 25, 2018
Very good, tan to mossy head leaving shards of lace over black beer. Chocolate "coffee beans" , mocha. Roast, mineral, overbaked cookies, metalslug. Bitterish -roast at first, with lots of underlying malty sweetness; again coffee/chocolate/mocha. Mineral remains in place. Sugary impression gets stronger in time, certainly warming up, cane sugar, molasses. Spritzy carbonation; very creamy , near viscous MF, long-lasting flavours. Actually too sweet by half, certainly in the end. Easy on the sugar, please. 7/4/7/3/13

Black with a medium beige head. The aroma is coffee, cocoa, some dark fruit, chocolate and caramel. The taste is very coffee forward, there's espresso, cocoa, dark chocolate, some acidity from roasted malts, a little ashy. The body is medium, the beer is smooth and drinkable. Very elegant.

didierlewallon (301) - ponferrada, SPAIN - FEB 22, 2018
Cerveza de un color negro con una cabeza espesa y espumosa color canela que desaparece muy lentamente. El aroma es caramelo, chocolate amargo, café molido, muy cargado. El sabor es de café muy amargo, fuerte, el tostado de malta domina en un inicio, pero poco a poco el café y chocolate amargo aparecen como dominadores en boca. El retrogusto es seco y la amargura persiste por un tiempo. En general, una cerveza muy sabrosa de una gran cervecería

4.2
Fules (1535) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - FEB 17, 2018
Kicsi, nem túl tartós hab, fekete szín. Csokis, kávés, kakaós, aszalt gyümölcsös illat. Kissé édeskés, csokis, kávés, kakaóporos ízvilág, aszalt gyümölcsös aromákkal és egy picike karamellel. Közepesen testes, enyhén szénsavas, közepesen keserű. Nagyon finom, kiváló egyensúllyal rendelkező sör.

Black with thin creamy head. Aroma and flavour have a lot of earthy coffee and roasted, burnt malt. Background hints of liquorice and chocolate.
