Buxton Brewery Guatemalan Coffee Extra Porter (7.4%)

Guatemalan Coffee Extra PorterHasBean make very good coffee and a lot of brewers seem to like using them in their beer.
In this little Porter from Buxton the coffee is used beautifully, creating a soft warm woody background hum to this delightful beer.
Pouring an inky black, the aroma is vanilla, figs and treacle, the sticky smell leading you smiling into the body of the beer.
Taking a swig you find vanilla biscotti and caramel wafers, fig biscuits, dates and a drizzle of honey, rich and round and sweet, and across this the hops give you a much needed sharp green herbal slap.
And all the while the coffee beans, bolstered by a rich alcohol warmth give you a deep woodiness edged by a round whisky heat that leads you to the most lovely creamy finish.
