On tap every time I see it. Dark pour with a dark head. Coffee here. Coffee there. Big, roasty presence from beginning to end. Just as good as Aduro was, but so much easier to find.

Black as night. Hearty coffee aroma; roasted grain and coffee beans join forces to punch me in the taste buds. Me likey.
Unfortunately, the high carb level detracts significantly from my enjoyment. Tone this down and you've got a solid brew.

Black beer, tan, foamy ring. Smells good like when you walk through that coffee aisle at the grocery store but don’t even drink coffee. Definitely an economical coffee porter. Even non-coffee drinkers can tell the difference.

32oz growler in a tulip. Pours black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of coffee which is sort of burnt, roasted malts, chocolate, dough, and light bitterness. Flavor the same. Average texture. A pretty good porter.

Pours black like oil with tan head. Coffee and lots of it on the nose, some roast too; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a little green bell pepper note, probably not the freshest pour.

Growler thanks to Rainer. Pours a cloudy brown with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is strong coffee roast, chocolate. Thin mouthfeel with strong roast, dark chocolate, light bitterness. Good

Espresso colored pour with a light brown creamy head. Notes of smoke, heavy coffee, and chocolate. Velvet mouthfeel and lingering finish. Nice work.

Draft - Lots of dark roast coffee. Jet black with a thin head. Lots of coffee, but little bitterness. Think iced iced coffee, black.
