Bottle. Dark chestnut with a small, dark beige head. Really malty with some chocolate and slightly sour in the finish. A little thin but nice.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2013
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours a clear reddish brown with a dissipating light brown head. Some vanilla and coffee in the nose. Medium body, dryish, chocolate accents and again quite some coffee - but never heavily roasted or burned. But quite pleasant and easygoing - if somewhat light. 160513

piscator34 (2362) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 9, 2013
Bottled sample. Black in colour with moderate carbonation. Smells like a mocha milkshake with notes of coffee, dark chocolate and vanilla. Flavours are of medium roast coffee, olive, toasted malt, and toasted nuts. A touch thin on the palate, with some coffee bitterness. Solid overall.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle:   Deep brown, moderate to large frothy beige head, fairly nice lacing.   Not getting a terribly strong coffee nose.   Comes across as more of a musty cocoa, and even a bit of earthiness.   Its like it reminds me of coffee beans before they are roasted.   Moderate and semi-sweet roastiness up front, but unfortunately to me its like watered down coffee.   Decent malt base, a bit creamy, cream and sugar, but missing the core roastiness.   I had the Bridgeport Negro Porter right before this and thought it was much more coffee oriented.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Light finish, again with some watered down coffee.   I don’t drink a lot of coffee, but this seemed like a regular old porter to me, with a bit of coffee.   Hops were on the low side.   Meh...

Dry roast and chocolate with a moderate bit of chocolate. Semi-sweet with a bit of an acrid finish.

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - APR 29, 2013
Pours black with tan head. Aroma is coffee dominate with hints of chocolate. Flavor I’d much the same with a nice dark roast/coffee bitter and dry. Light-medium mouth feel with high carbonation. Overall, solid brew"

kevinator (1851) - The Colony, Texas, USA - APR 19, 2013
Well done coffee porter. Aromas are up front coffee, sweet malt and some chocolate. Dark cafe color with smallish off-white head. Creamy palate with some weight but not too heavy. The flavors blended well with coffee being the dominant followed by maltiness with a little bit of roasted. A little bit of chocolate milk as well. Not sure if this had lactose or not. Good spin on a porter.

scooterbub (1031) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - APR 14, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Pours a solid black with a half inch dark tan head that lasts. Taste is of coffee, malt, chocolate, some smoke and some hops. Similar, cleaner aroma. Has a decent body with a dry finish. Good, but underwhelming.
