Magic Rock Common Grounds

Style Porter
Country British Beers
ABV 5.4%
Serving Temp 7 to 10°C
Bottle Size 330ml
This aptly named porter is a collaboration between Magic Rock Brewing and nearby Slaithwaite roasters Dark Woods Coffee. It’s a complex dark porter than reflects its complex production: seven different malts combined with seven different coffees added at three points during the beer making process. The result is a a beer full of rich dark fruits, vanilla and hazelnut, with a warming coffee tang. The clever use of Sorachi Ace hops adds a zingy earthiness.

Product Reviews

  • It's a great beer

    Review by Bill

    I was expecting the coffee to overpower this but it's very subtle. The flavours all complement each other and all in all, one of the best porter beers I have had. (Posted on 09/12/2017)

  • Ground coffee in a can

    Review by Jack Swans

    Actually tastes like ground coffee with a bit of fizz. Too watery for me, but a nice alternative to black Americano. (Posted on 29/11/2017)

  • Superb

    Review by MrDeek

    This was the first Coffee Porter I tried and I was surprised how much I loved it. The subtle coffee flavour comes in at first and helps round the overall taste off really well. (Posted on 22/06/2017)

  • Quality

    Review by Leedj1

    I am a fan of coffee beers, this is the best i have tried, not too bitter as is the case with some, distinct coffee flavour but not overpowering. nice. (Posted on 20/06/2017)

  • Coffee Coffee Coffee

    Review by Mr.B

    Starting off with big hit of coffee notes leading to some chocolate. Am not getting much of the vanilla. Lovely though. (Posted on 23/04/2017)

    Review by Garygph

    My second visit on this one. Love it. This puts magic rock on the craft beer map in the UK. (Posted on 18/04/2017)

  • Black Coffee

    Review by Ninja Terrier

    Starts of with a massive coffee hit then moves on to chocolate before a soft vanilla finish. Well worth tracking this one down (Posted on 17/04/2017)

  • Uncommonly good

    Review by Llamaman

    My experience of this differed from the other review!
    This is brewed with coffee, cocoa and vanilla - and, despite the name, it is the latter two notes that stood out for me.

  • Espresso delights

    Review by Bruce

    I shared this with a friend who is not usually a dark beer drinker and her first reaction was it tastes just like a espresso, hard to better that first reaction.

    It is a lovely beer, pours really pitch black, with a slight tan head, aroma is strong coffee, slight taste of chocolate.

    The body could be a little fuller but hard to fault when it tastes as good as it does, carbonated ever so slightly so you do not get the same mouthfeel of some heavier porters. (Posted on 15/01/2017)
