From the tap. Heavy nitro characters surprised me a bit; poured more like a stout with fine, thick head; lots of retention. Roasted coffee bean aroma, some vanilla. Sweet, dark malt taste with mild caramel to finish. Some lingering, but not heavy bitter coffee which is good.

malrubius (1862) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - NOV 17, 2014
Bottle from Meditrina. BB 4/7/15! It’s fresh! Dark dark brown with lasting tan head and lace. Slightly noisy pour. Coffee and dark chocolate aroma with some wet leafy woods. Dark chocolate coffee mocha sweetness with subdued fruit roasted coffee and woody bitterness. Medium body. Very complex and flavorful, but still sessionable like a good porter should be. Excellent.

mathieuc (1516) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 15, 2014
Pours a medium-dark brown with a medium beige head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is like a coffee shop, moka and roasted beans. Taste is of chocolate, mokah and general coffee. No ash or any green pepper like in most coffee beers I’ve had so far, a good thing if you ask me. Body is medium and carbonation really high and prickly. Mouthfeel is a bit smooth but the heavy carbonation is a bit problematic, really. The beer would be even better I’m sure if they took it down a notch. Anyway, nice one! A complete surprise to me since I had no expectations whatsoever.

Draft at Positive Pie. Pours black with no head. Aroma of medium roast coffee, dark chocolate. Taste is the same with some mild floral notes. Rich and creamy, light/med body. Smooth chocolate finish. Excellent.

annunz123 (881) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Roast coffee, fruit, and bread in the aroma. Strong, bittersweet coffee flavor with some cocoa and dark fruit. Bitter roast coffee finish. I haven’t always been impressed by other offerings from this brewery, but this is really good.

ScipioA (335) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Usual cola brown porter appearance. Roasted and fairly sweet with a deliciously thick mouthfeel. Solid stuff and reasonably priced. Only fault is I wished for a little more coffee presence.

if you were to eat out a coffee bean, while getting a foot rub and asian school girls fanned you with giant leaves than you would get what this beer is like. This is the bee’s knees, the cream of the crop, the tits.
