Usual cola brown porter appearance. Roasted and fairly sweet with a deliciously thick mouthfeel. Solid stuff and reasonably priced. Only fault is I wished for a little more coffee presence.

if you were to eat out a coffee bean, while getting a foot rub and asian school girls fanned you with giant leaves than you would get what this beer is like. This is the bee’s knees, the cream of the crop, the tits.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 Oz bottle. Pours black with a thick tan head. The coffee aroma comes through. Creamy mouthfeel with a nice balance of malt and coffee. Lots of coffee flavor which I like but not overly bitter as with other coffee stouts or porters. It is a little thinner than I was expecting. Porter is one of my favorite styles and this is an excellent one.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bomber - Poured in a tulip glass. Coffee House Porter pours a chestnut brown with creamy tan head. All your usual suspects for aroma; dry bakers chocolate and roasted barley, brownies, and coffee. Drinks just as it should for the style, sweet malty upfront and dry and acidic in the back but with lush bursts of coffee in every sip. I enjoyed this.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance is a dark brown/black body with a two finger foamy white head rises and gently subsides leaving some nice lightly foamy clingy lacing that eventually spider webs a bit.
The smell has espresso coffee, light chocolate, and some vanilla comes out as the beer warms.
The taste is bittersweet through the coffee and chocolate, vanilla is way more subdued with a malty aftertaste.
The palate is about a medium to heavy, shows a rich and smooth, sticky sweet finish, not as sessionable - good sipper.
Overall, this is probably one of the heavier porters out there. I still liked it, coffee forward - yes, but also has some nice complexities that come out to play, under-rated company - yes, awesome price $3.99 for a bomber.
