This dark ale combines the taste of real organic coffee with out popular Drayman's Porter. The robust coffee flavor comes vis a special coffee extract made for us exclusively by Dean's Beans, New Salem MA.

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.

Dark color and head. Both the aroma and flavor are roasted with strong coffee, it has a creamy texture. I did not get any hint of chocolate.

Pailhead (6385) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - SEP 5, 2005
Bottle: Courtesy of Silphium. Strong roasted coffee aroma with hints of mocha. Pours a dark brown with red hilights. Roasted coffee from start to finish with light chocolate. A touch of hops in the finish. This one seemed rather simple but really worked for me. Only knock was that it was a tad thin.

Pours deep dark brown with a big tan head. Subtle aroma of coffee and milk?. Taste is coffee, roasted notes, slight hops. Very full, creamy mouthfeel. Coffee is present for sure, but not over the top. Well balanced. Awesome and underrated.

Cask (GBBF): Subdued roast coffee aroma. Black with a dark brown head. Sweet choc, mild roast coffee. Touch of hops in the finish. Medium bodied and quite nice.

RichardGretton (4627) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2005
Cask@GBBF 2005. Dark beer with a coffee aroma and a light malty and watery coffee flavour. Overall a reasonable porter but not as good as I was expecting.

Cask at GBBF Very dark brown. Coffee and roasted malt on nose, more chocolate than coffee really, not a big fan of this.
