Danish: En stor og kraftig Porter med en umiskendelig og lkker kaffearoma. En bld og lkker l, selvom den med sine knap 10 % er en kraftig herre. Bde Cascade og Simcoe skinner fint igennem de ristede elementer og blander sig dejligt med den ristede aroma og kaffen.

English: Its a beer thats been thought about for quite some time actually since the brewers first visit to Sherbrooke Liquor in Edmonton, AB, Canada a few years back, and finally I did it I manned up and did it! After a whole freaking day of brewing coffee for this beer I can truly say it is Craft. If not devoted to the product who in their right mind would brew hundreds of litres of coffee for a beer? The result is a big and bold smooth Porter with discrete vanilla and coffee notes.
Hops: Magnum, Nelson Sauvin Malts: Pilsner, Caramel, Rye, Oats, Chocolate, Black, Vanilla and coffee.

Brewhemia (281) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 27, 2015
I was hoping for a but more smooth coffee and vanilla flavor in this beer. Dark brown/black brew with light brown head. Not much but some coffee aroma. Quite a bit bitterness and not much sweetness. Ok taste but doesnt have a great finish I think. I dont taste the vanilla much. A light palate considering the beer type.

koshack (1610) - Gdask, POLAND - JAN 13, 2015
Piana drobna, beżowa, ładnie koronkuje. W aromacie ciemne słody, lekko kwaskowe. Po ogrzaniu pojawia się lekki aromat wanilii. Jest też likierowa słodycz. Wyczuwalny alkohol. W smaku wyraźna goryczka, paloność. Nuty kawowe i czekoladowe. Wyraźne chmiele, ale dobrze się komponują. W drugiej nucie wyraźne grzanie od alkoholu - trochę nieułożone. Posmak pralinek, niezbyt słodkie. Daje lekkie odczucie słone.

Douberd (5237) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - DEC 10, 2014
(Ugly Duck Imperial Vanilla Coffee Porter) Bottle 330 ml, from a trade with humlelala, thanks! Served into a snifter ABV 10% Black colour on the body with a full finger of thick, beige head, with very good retention. Medium lacing on the glass. Aroma has tons of coffee, roasted malts, light vanilla, some alcohol after a deep sniff, some hops. Really great taste, again lots of coffee, lots of roasted malts, alcohol present but without any burning, on the contrary compliments the beer, much more vanilla now. Medium thick body, soft carbonation, smooth and creamy feeling on the palate. Very good!
