Cask conditioned - gravity- GBBF 2004. A black beer with a roasty aroma. The taste is very sweet for a porter and there didn’t appear to be many coffee notes either. I would have classed this as a sweet stout if I’d not known what I was drinking. A good beer if a bit confused!

Thin bodied, totally dominated by coffee. Could have scored higher with a bit more body, but the coffee was really good, left my mouth dry and chalky. Tops of the four Berkshire beers sent by Old Growth!!!! Thanks!!

This is about the most dead on coffee beer that I have ever had. Most coffee flavors are more general bean, roasted flavors, but this beer actually tastes like a coffee -- probably more like a cold espresso.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2007 Very dark, like a cup of coffee(I will repeat myself a lot about coffee). Small brown head. Aroma of coffee. If you love good coffee, like I do, this beer is a real treat, throw away all the porter stuff and frankly the stout stuff, this taste like a great cup of coffee. Finish is like a cup of coffee with a little sugar. Thanks Oldgrowth, l loved it!

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - MAR 25, 2004
Pours a very dark brown, tan head. Neat fresh coffee aroma. Coffee and chocolate smooth flavor, and a little on the sweet side.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - MAR 23, 2004
22oz Bomber Best Before June'04 Deep dark brown with some faint light coming through at the edges. Nice foamy head that seems to be lasting awhile. Aroma of dark roasted coffee some roasted malt and a slight hop presence. Mouthfeel is medium and finishes a bit dry. Overall not a bad porter.

argo0 (11562) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 20, 2004
Black body topped by a lovely medium tan head. Aroma is rich, sweet coffee, some chocolate. Taste is much more subdued -- some medium sweet coffee. Medium creamy, slightly oily body.

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 16, 2003
This is a deep brown beer with a soapy beige head. Smells like coffee, brown sugar and, believe it or not, peaches. The taste is all strong sweet coffee. A smooth, somewhat oily mouthfeel and a slightly bitter finish round things off.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 14, 2003
Bottle, dark brown with ruby tint. Decent aroma with touch of coffee, berry. Flavor initially has too much fruit, aftertaste is a bit more mellow with the coffee and chocolate coming very. Medium body, rich porter, creamy and smooth. A bit more hops and less fruit might make a better brew. Good overall.
