3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Monk’ Pub. Kind of an oblique toast to a Pope from Argentina. Black pour with a 1-finger tan head. Distinct brewed coffee aroma, not too bitter. But the coffee in the actual taste is a bit more bitter, or perhaps it’s the hops talking. There is some roast on the palate, but it’s rather "patient," waiting to sneak up on you. Not a lot of alcohol, but it is still presented for your appreciation.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated from notes --On tap at the tasting room -- Pours a nice dark brown, with small tan head. Aroma is small coffee, roast, and malt. Flavor is a good porter, and the coffee comes through just enough.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
355 ml bottle (admittedly well aged - circa 2010). Pours a virtual opaque black with a huge undulating mocha head. Aromas are big coffee, cocoa, and a little tapioca pudding. As it warmed a little more of the typical molasses/licorice came out.Tastes are coffee dominant (but not cloying) in balance with chocolate. Best comparison is like a coffee crisp but with a fraction of the sweetness. Thick oily texture, soft carbonation, mildly bitter medium finish with a little warming alcohol. This is a very pleasant beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle. Dark brown pour, creamy tan/brown head. Smell is coffee and cocoa, slight bit of the green pepper scent some coffee beers like bcbcs get but not over the top. It has a nice body, sweet caramel and cocoa backing, the coffee is heavy, slight metallic note, not super bitter. I am expecitng fresher better coffee flavor but it isn’t bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
"a nice addition to their line-up. a little thin bodied but the flavor makes up for that. for the price, a very nice highly quaffable beer. the coffee is a little more evident in the flavor than the aroma. more roast in the nose and chocolate.roast/bitter balance in the flavor. well done."

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle poured opaque with a large creamy head.
Unappealing aroma suggests the beer is past its prime, but this doesn’t carry over to the flavor where dark roasted malts dominate. Coffee and dark chocolate are also present.
Creamy smooth, relatively lively feel.

Decent coffee, but lighter than expected mouthfeel for a porter. Dark brown, OK aroma. Not so drinkable. Extra from Steve in Michigan.

Sun Devil bottle. Pour a very dark brown color with a medium brown head. Nice aroma of milk chocolate and light coffee. Very nice flavor with light coffee at first, a little chocolate in the middle and finishes with dry espresso and a hint of bitterness. Nice.
