Cask condioned GBBF 2005: Very roasted, sweet and with loads of coffee. Quite heavy porter, in spite of the low ABV. Interesting beer.

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2005
I liked their regular porter. I thought this would better. I was wrong. Massive bitter, overroasted, over-extracted coffee, thick, grainy, chewy, yucky. Couldn’t finish the bottle.

Nice, mild coffe flavored porter. This isn’t a very flavor heavy beer, but still satisfying. Very smooth and mellow roasted coffe and chocolate with a nice hoppy back bite.

Bottle: Nearly black, dark brown, moderate off-white foamy head, nice lacing.   Huge roasted coffee nose, not much else.   Unbelieveable how strong the coffee is on this one.   Strong coffee on the tongue, very slight lactose sweetness.   Who knows what the underlying beer is, the coffee simply dominates.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Semi-sweet coffee w/cream lingers well after the finish.   Aside from Speedway Stout, this is likely a coffee lovers dream.   Sessionable coffee beer for sure.   Thanks Clark!

Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 19, 2005
Sampled at the Ohio Labor Day gathering, provided by me via trade with OldGrowth. Deep red-brown body, light/thin off-white head. Big coffee and roasted malt aroma, which carried over into the coffee-dominated body, in addition to notes of baker’s chocolate. Medium-bodied, not too complex. I think I liked the Drayman’s Porter a bit better, with its lighter emphasis on coffee beans, but this sample luckily lacked the DMS problem.

Dogbrick (11061) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 12, 2005
Acquired via trade. For a guy who can’t stand coffee I sure like it in beer. Very dark brown color with a medium thick and foamy dark beige head. Thick lacing that doesn’t move much. Strong roasted coffee aroma with a nice dark malt undertone. Medium-bodied with a tasty bitter coffee flavor. Strong roasty character with some sweet malt and smoke. The finish is pretty soft but retains some coffee bitterness. Overall a pretty enjoyable brew.

Fresh, sweet coffee aroma overshadows the chocolate and roasted malt tones of the porter. Clear dark brown with low tan head that diminishes rapidly to ring. Chocolate and roasted malts again play second fiddle to coffee flavours with some leafy hops also notable. Medium-light body with somewhat watery texture and low carbonation. Sampled on cask at GBBF 2005.
