COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our award winning coffee beer! We brew this robust style porter with coffee we roast at the brewery. The roasted coffee compliments the dark roasted malts we use in this brew. English malts and hops round out the balance. Mmm, the perfect breakfast beer.

Sampler on tap at Blind Tiger in Topeka. Pours a black color with tan head. Coffee, hazelnut, malty, chocolate flavors. Sort of a bitter black coffee aftertaste. Still pretty good.

Reviewed from notes taken during the Great Nebraska Beer Festival. Aroma has a nice, moderately strong, roast coffee aroma with some malt notes of light roast and moderate chocolate. A hint of green pepper with some light dark fruit esters. Pours a dark brown with a small, thick, tan head with decent retention. Flavor is similar to the aroma with quite a bit of freshly roasted coffee. Medium light roast malt note with moderate chocolate notes. Medium low bitterness with a light astringency. Low dark fruit esters, mostly plum and berries. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium light carbonation. Medium low astringency and low alcohol warmth. An alright coffee beer, but I prefer my coffee to have a character more similar to a cold pressed coffee. The astringency was a bit higher than I would prefer. Malt balance was really nice as were the low dark fruit esters.

Dark cola color with a small amount of khaki head that lingers around the rim. Smells of vegetal strong black coffee, anise. Taste is a strong coffee, roasted malt, a little chocolate and anise like sweetness, low carbonation, dry. A good roasted quality overall and coffee smells and tastes are very strong, earthy coffee. Good overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pint at the brewpub. Pours very dark, near black. The aroma has rich, real coffee all over the place. They have captured the coffee bean essence near perfectly. The flavor is packed with coffee and a creamy malt balance. Excellent coffee beer.
