UPDATED: DEC 27, 2011 Bottle. The pour was a very dark clear brown with a large frothy tan head that was mostly lasting and had excellent lacing. The aroma was quite thick of the scent of coffee with dark roasted malts and a chewy leathery yeast with notes of roasted coffee, molasses and dark chocolate. The taste was sweetly bitter and had a nice malty presence with coffee overtones in the beginning and finished with a strong coffee flavor, yet still sweetly bitter but with hints of chocolate and molasses with a touch of caramel at the end. Mouthfeel was full in body with the texture being smooth and creamy and an almost flat carbonation. Overall a wonderfully tasting Porter. All of the components in this brew worked together very well giving you an extremely well balanced beer. A great representation of the style.

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 (864) - 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.

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.

From a bomber. Pours dark brown with a bubbly beige head. Tastes like roasted coffee beans, earth, bitter burnt toast, subtle sweet cocoa. Light body and low carbonation. Smells sweet roasted gains, light booze, earth, and dry cocoa.

Bottle. Pours deep, dark brown with creamy beige head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malts, light coffee, light raisin and fig, and faint vanilla. Flavor is rich chocolate, medium earthy bitterness, faint coffee, and faint dark fruit sweetness; dry, chocolate finish. Medium body and carbonation.

TATE (304) - Lubec, Maine, USA - MAY 18, 2014
22 Oz bottle. Pours black with a thick tan head. The coffee aroma comes through. Creamy mouthfeel with a nice balance of malt and coffee. Lots of coffee flavor which I like but not overly bitter as with other coffee stouts or porters. It is a little thinner than I was expecting. Porter is one of my favorite styles and this is an excellent one.
