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.

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.

Pours black with a copper head. Smell of coffee and burnt toast. Creamy mouth feel with a nice touch of carbonation. Malt forward with a dry slightly sour finish. Great beer to enjoy on a cold day. Cheers!

Pour is dark brown with a beige head. Aroma and flavor are both huge coffee, there really isn’t much else. Slightly bitter finish, smooth, but thin.
