What about the beer?
Colour is black with a large beige head. Aroma has strongly charred roast, espresso and cocoa. Taste begins with sweet and bitter roasted malts. Charcoaly malts and sweetish espresso take over with bitter dark chocolate. Towards the end sweet espresso roast and dark chocolate bitterness get on top with coffee taking the upper hand in the end. Aftertaste has malty coffee, bittersweet chocolate and dry roast.
Excellent roasted Porter with Colombian coffee. Deep charcoal roast builds a solid base for espresso and dark chocolate. Growing bitterness fits in the picture, too. Great amplified version of the excellent basic brew.


Every song with a reference to coffee seemed to be too light for this one. Both in colour and in flavour everything light seems to be stolen away from the brew. And there came the idea.
