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.

NachlamSie (2646) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 19, 2013
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.

NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Tap @ Blind Tiger. Pours a dark brown appearance with a thin brown head. Very roasty coffee, earthy, dark chocolate aroma. Carbonation is pretty dull. Burnt/smoky, dark roasted coffee, herbal, very earthy flavor. Not bad but I found the carbonation to be a bit low.

Pours a deep brown with amber notes and a medium tan head. Aroma of hazelnut coffee, chocolate and lightly roasted malt. Flavor of hazelnut coffee, vanilla, chocolate and roast. I like the coffee profile in this beer. Giving a hazelnut profile, however I’m not even sure they used a hazelnut coffee.
