Sweet malted chocolate milk with coffee and cream, roasted grain, some licorice and a bit of smoke. Light acidic tang under the sweetness. Twizzlers and some alcohol essence, too. Dark brown-black with thin lacing light tan head. Medium-heavy watery body with medium-high carbonation. Some carbonic tangy burn. Starts with good vapory malted sweetness. Taste of chocolate, bitter coffee beans, some Twizzlers, and cola. Good hit of acidity throughout, carbonic tang. Nice bitterness in the finish to combine with acidity that tones down the potential over-sweetness of these malts. Could be a bit less acidic, however, or maybe some lower carbonation. Otherwise, there is a nice robust malty coffee base to this porter.

Poured dark, thick foamy tan head. aroma of coffee, and a bit of caramel and chocolate.This is slick and very nice. Full body flavor with a wee bit of hop to smooth this nice brew out. Scoot, thanks.

Pours dark with a light brown head. Smells of coffee and roasted malt. Taste is of coffee, chocolate and caramel with some smokiness to add en extra bite. Consistency is slightly oily. Finish is on the bitter side.

bomber...nearly black pour with a beautiful tan colored head. Looks like a stout. French Roast coffee aroma. Wonderfully roasty and malty. Coffee is the star, but roasted malt is the supporting actor, also some mention for milk chocolate. This is a very tasty brew, the mouthfeel solidifies it’s classification as a porter. I like porters and coffee so this is a hit with me. Nice lingering bitterness...not too sweet in the middle. This is well done.

[Cask at GBBF 2004] A black beer with a brown head. Both the aroma and flavor are roasted with strong notes of coffee and chocolate.

The Lure:
Sweet and roasty coffee emanations surround an impending dryness. Near headless, looks like a cheap macro coffee.

The Festivities:
Coffee roastiness and dark malts blend well in the porous, thin body. A little cream on top gives it a little more depth.

For summer mornings where you just don’t care anymore.

Good, decent porter with a nice flavor and good finish. But while ten or more years ago I thought that having coffee in a prter or stout was a great idea, the novelty has worn a bit thin. If this had perhaps just a bit more charachter it could be great - as it is, it’s good.

There’s certainly some coffee here (no surprise there) and a slight sourness on the finish. The colour is darkish brown. Nice rounded, supple mouthfeel. Not the most assertive US beer I’ve had, but I thought it was rather good - not a stand-out, but no obvious faults either. Cask, GBBF 2004.
