Bottle. Black in color with a foamy brown head. An intense chocolate (sweet) and coffee aroma. Smooth and medium bodied, the semi-sweet chocolate flavors dominate the flavor but are cut with an edge of mint, coffee beans, and banana. A nice addition to this fine line.

Bottled. Pours very dark in color. Semi-sweet aroma. Some chocolate and roasted coffee beans in there. Nice sweet chocolate up front. Roasted coffee. Some hops in the finish. Nice porter.

This porter pours a deep brown color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head, with good lacing. Aroma is chocolate and coffee with some spiciness. A medium bodied porter. Malts are chocolate and coffee. Touch of banana and clove, and lots of chocolate. It is kind of sweet for a porter, but I like it. There is also some fruitiness as well. Smooth out and opens up as it warms. Nice beer. The ‘Farmhouse’ series of beer from Coast Range is very promising. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - JAN 10, 2006
Bottled. 22oz. Pours an almost still pitch black before a large tan head works it’s way up out of the beer. Aromas of bitter chocolate, coffee and some smoky astringency. Thick mouth feel with big chocolate flavors along with some coffee and fruit notes. Definitely opens up as it warms. This is a great beer.
