Bottle from Shawans liquor. Pours black with an inch of khaki foam. Leaves some solid lacing in the glass. Big coffee.on the nose though the coffee flavor on the tongue isn’t as bold as I thought it would be. Finishes clean. A bit underwhelmed by this one.

Farbe tiefschwarz. Geruch extrem nach Kaffee. Stark karbonisiert. Im Geschmack dann auch Kaffee, ein bisschen wässrig. Aber schöner dicker Kaffeenachgeschmack.

Intensiver Kaffeegeruch gepaart mit deutlichem Kaffeegeschmack. Sehr ausgewogen. Könnte für ein Porter einen Tick süßer sein, aber schon ziemlich gut.

Thin brown pour w/ a kaki head that leaves spotty lacing. The aroma has a lovely coffee scent. The taste is slightly disappointing as it comes across as a watered down coffee. The palate is a touch thin & overall this is just mediocre!

Just plain awful. I usually love the Brewer’s Art, but this porter is nasty. It tastes like malt liquor that someone added coffee to the mix. It smells fine, but in the end, i just end up tasting lots of malts.

dark brown body with a light brown head. lactic coffee roast nose. that is a roasty cup of beer. wow, just char and hints of smoke to get through after the initial sips. it is fitting that it is a coffee porter and not a porter with coffee cause getting through to something other than coffee here is difficult. on the plus side, i drink my coffee black, so i appreciate the flavor, just think it is a bit much here. light caramel cream notes start to emerge later in this. acidic coffee lingers more than anything else though.

Small tan head, short lived, skimpy lace, nice ruby hued color. Nose of coffee grinds and caramel, pleasent enough. Lightly medium bodied, tame carbonation, cool. Decent roast and coffe flavors, lil chocolate, bitter sweet. Dry, tamely roasty finish, coffeeish. Decent! Bottles from statelineliquors.

A fine porter with hints of coffee, especially in the nose, but lightly present throughout. Appetizing head. Lots of roastiness, dark.

Dark black, not much head. Coffee, chocolate, malt and hop aroma. Tastes pretty good, mellow, cofeeish. Palate is smooth, but thin. Not bad.

I agree with Travlr - this is certainly mostly a porter with a little coffee thrown in. Lots of roast and a little nut. Pours black with OK head and lacing. Nice bitter finish. Thick consistency. Tap at pizza paradiso.
