Strykzone (4782) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2011
Enjoyed a couple of pints at Peel. Very close to black with a steady layer of tan head. A kind of funky aroma with coffee. Coffee is dominant throughout here. There is a bit of cocoa. Underneath are some nice hops that add some bitterness and spiciness. Feel was substantial and smooth. A nice beer.

nbutler11 (1267) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 1, 2011
Bottle from Sun Devil. Pours black with an amber tint around the edges and a large brown head. Smells of hickory sticks and coffee. Tastes of both with added notes of malt, cream, and grit (however true, I cannot say). Respectable.

jake65 (2588) - Williston, North Dakota, USA - FEB 1, 2011
Black Hills Beer Fest - Dark brown pour with a modest tan head. Coffee aroma is fantastic! Rich, roasty, and smooth. Tastes of heavy roast, bittersweet cocoa, and coffee (duh). Nicely done.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - FEB 1, 2011
Bottle. Poured a jet black color with a one finger tan head. Aroma was roasted malts, coffee, and chocolate. Flavor was burnt notes, some roasted flavors, caramel, and coffee. Long finish. Good beer

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 31, 2011
Tap at Pap. Brown pour with a small tan head. Roasty aroma of malt, coffee, chocolate and licorice. Flavor of char and coffee. Not bad at all.

cstuartj (949) - Washington, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Dark, with bit of cream color, nice head, not much lacing. nose is malts and caramel and coffee. nice creamy taste with lots of coffee. A bit of a watery finish though.

Narnad (1448) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Pours a deep black with a very tall, deep tan head. Aroma has a muddled roasted barley malt presence, modest coffee, mild london porter yeasty presence and a very light chocolate kick. Flavor has an early coffee kick but this is quickly overtaken by the roasted barley bitter bite and it finishes with a light dark chocolate. Creamy texture, light to modest body with a slight bitter bite. Overall an okay brew. I was expecting a bit more of a coffee kick than was present in the beer.

beerbastard (669) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 26, 2011
I like it. Very coffee nose, a little choc. in the background. Thin palate for a porter. Dry strong coffee taste. It lacks the richness of the malt that I would also expect. This would be fun to get once a year when it is a limited release. But that will be enough.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 13/20
Beaver (1264) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 26, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours dark brown black with a medium creamy tan head that goes to a thin film that leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet lactic chocolate and vanilla with some coffee roast and a touch of smoke and ash.

The flavor is a little sweet chocolate with a lot of acidic stale coffee flavor. There’s a decent amount of charred bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with light carbonation.

Overall, a decent coffee porter. The coffee flavors were a little stale to me and the charred bitterness was a little much. I preferred the Santa Fe coffee stout much more.

BigBeer45 (1234) - Michigan, USA - JAN 25, 2011
Bottle, label is different than what is shown here, also, the label reads ‘Malt Bevaerage With Coffee Added’ next to the barcode, has a black-brown pour and gave a two to three finger head of tan and light tan colored bubbles, I can see a few bubbles flowing up the sides of the glass, otherwise, it is too dark to see how much effervescence is in this ale, left some spots, fingers and splotches of lacing on the glass, no sediment in the bottle, there were aromas of dry chocolate, strong roast coffee, roasted malt, there is a hint of dark syrup/dark brown sugar sweetness but it is in the background, the label states that this is a beer with coffee added and it smells like it, the flavors consist of roasted and toasted malt (roasted malt seems to stand out), roasted coffee, a little chocolate with no sweetness, and just a hint of sweetness on the palate, finish has a little bitterness (roasted malt) and pretty dry with some malt and coffee flavor trailing afterwards, medium mouth feel, this Porter appears to have more roasted malt aroma and flavor than what I would expect for a Porter, lots of roast in this beer, the coffee and porter mixed well, a nice drink.
