The quality of the cold brewed coffee that goes into Texas Exile is important to us. That’s why we hooked up with MA coffee roaster Barismo. These guys are as serious about coffee as we are about beer. About 33 gallons of cold brewed coffee goes into each batch of Texas Exile right before fermentation, adding the perfect compliment to the brown sugar and oatmeal flavors of this huge imperial porter. Breakfast just got a punch in the neck.

Thisis12ptfont (1051) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - DEC 9, 2015
Aromas of dark roasted malt, coffee roast, toffee, figs, raisins, earthy roast and slight chocolate. Pours black with a nearly non existent foam rim. Taste is extremely smooth with creamy caramel, coffee, espresso, latte, milk chocolate, dark cacao, dark chocolate, toffee, slight nuttiness, almond milk and roasted malts. Finishes boozy with residual chocolate & coffee. Overall, very smooth and flavorful offering. A- rating.

Dark brown color with small amount of mocha head. Aroma is very muted with some dark fruits, mocha, and mild oxidation. Taste is robust roastyness with a dark fruit sweet malty front. Oily and flabby low carb palatw.

Brash is a good descriptor of this beast. Dark as night, very coffee forward (though the coffee at times seems a little green). Hoppy and bitter as well as heavily roasted. Did I mention the coffee? Very enjoyable. Not quite elite.

Dark with a sizable brown sugar head. Terrific coffee flavor, low on bitterness, smooth and roasty.

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a big coffee aroma with some spices tossed in. Appearance- This beer is a dark brown to black color with a nice sized tan head. Taste- Has a bitter flavor mixed with the coffee and yeast, not bad, but not great. Palate- A heavy bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Has a dry finish. Overall- Not great, but a fairly solid beer. It is worth a try.

RexTalionis (3306) - FINLAND - MAR 30, 2015
Bottle. Near black in color with a steady creamy tan head. Lots of roasted notes, dark chocolate and lushy licorice in aroma. Light spicyness and bit of leathery vinous notes as well. Soft and smooth mouthfeel. Well roasted coffee, just like level 5 löfbergs, some chocolatecakey notes in taste. Enough with bitters though maintaining the drinkability good here. There’s even a nice touch of dark fruity vinousness and licorice in aftertaste.

RedSox2004 (1551) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Jet black with a dense one-finger light brown head and viscous lace. Big roasted coffee aromas, cocoa and raw tobacco leaves. Taste follows, dominated by the coffee up front with a strong bittersweet chocolate middle and contributions from a bottle of bourbon and a Macanudo. Full body, minimal carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, and a rich coffee/cocoa finish.

Cam_Dynamite (114) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 4, 2015
Pours a vicious oily looking black. Looks super thick and syrupy. Aroma doesn’t give too much away. Coffee, chocolate. Taste is loaded with strong coffee, subtle hints of tobacco and vanilla. Pretty boozy. One of the better porters I’ve had.

Great porter. Coffee was unreal. Giant coffee and toffee richness. Porter mouthfeel was so drinkable for such a flavor full brew A+++
