This is a black ale, with a smokey toasted coffee bean aroma. The taste is of smokey coffee from the toasted malts, with sweet vanilla notes. It is a good malty-coffee porter and is eminently drinkable.
Magic Rock Brewing is based in Huddersfield in Yorkshire and began brewing in 2011. Common Grounds Coffee Porter is brewed with 7 malts and a blend of 7 coffees in collaboration with a local coffee roaster Dark Woods.
