500 ml bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours hazy very dark brown color with a 2 finger dense and rocky tan head with great retention, that reduces to a large cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, vanilla, toast, brown bread, light nuttiness, and herbal/roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt and coffee notes; with good strength. Taste of milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, vanilla, toast, brown bread, light nuttiness, and herbal/roasted earthiness. Light herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, vanilla, toast, brown bread, light nuttiness, and herbal/roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and coffee flavors; with a great roasted bitter/sweet balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/silky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice coffee porter. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and coffee flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Bottle. Pitch black with densed, caffee latte like, medium head. Good lacing. Dark, roasted malts aroma - intensive coffee aroma also hints of dark chocolate and dark, dried fruits. In taste you can feel mainly coffee flavours, low acidity (coffee) and medium bitterness. Also dried fruits flavours noticable. Medium body, oily texture, dry, medium carbonation, finish is bitter with hints of dark chocolate and coffee. In general good coffee porter, may be not the perfect combination of coffee with dark beer, but still good.
