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 (11535) - 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.

Bottle: Good nose, coffee ice cream. Reddish black color,clean, small head. Chocolate,cream & coffee, though not a strong roast. Thinner body, very drinkable. Leaves dry, coffee on the tounge. Nice brew overall.

BBB63 (6045) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 7, 2003
Say beer isn't for breakfast anymore and this brew is your proof, enough coffee elements to act as a morning pick me up, huge in the aroma and taste. The beer had a black hue with a solid tan head and good lace. The aroma added notes of floral hops, earthy yeast esters and a touch of smoky wood to the forementioned coffee smell. The taste is dry and smoky, full coffee effect with additonal bitterness from the hops. An undertone of malt is there, but you have to work hard to find it. This brew is among the strongest COFFEE versions I ever had. If I wasn't a coffee drinker, I not sure if I could have enjoyed this so much.

Wow! Stunningly creamy and coffee-ee! Black as black can be with a huge aroma of fresh-ground coffee. Very smooth palate that just slips on by before you know it. Big coffee taste.

This is a great porter - a strong, inviting aroma; complex and constantly changing flavors during the taste; solid mouthfeel - but I'm not a coffee drinker. I would have rated this beer higher if I was.
