Costa Rica Coffee Porter – Haandbryggeriet

O’hare’s Beer Club February 2013 Box

From Drammen, Norway’s Haandbryggeriet comes their “Costa Rica Coffee Porter”.  This porter pours a dark black with a very small tan head.  The aroma is of sweet cream, coffee, roaster malts and some mild smoke notes.  The flavour consists of sweet cream, smoke, roasted coffee, roasted malts and some mild hops bitterness.  The alcohol content of this beer is 6.5% and the IBU is 30.  This is a very tasty porter with just the right amount of smoke to enhance the flavour without overdoing it!
