Sampled on draft this beer poured a black color with a medium sized foamy-creamy brown head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was dry brewed coffee. The flavor was dry, roasty and had a fairly strong brewed coffee presence. Medium length finish. Medium body and smooth. Ok.

750 slim bottle. Pours hazy dark brownish black with tan head. Nose is roasty choc and patent malts, heavy coffee, hops. Tastes roasty and dark malty, with a big coffee flavor, some hops, and an overall bitter black coffee flavor. OK, not great.

Swing top 1L bottle. Pours deep brownish black with 1-finger tan head. Nose is big coffee grounds, jalapeno oil, black malt, very much like Bell’s java in the nose. Tastes bitter, with big coffee flavor, black malt, and some hops and cacao. Medium palate heft, smooth, and delicious.

Pours deep brown with a medium mocha head...nice lacing and retention. Aroma has roasty/burnt notes, dark fruit, nice coffee, and a touch of nuttiness. Flavor is more directly coffee with a touch of dark fruit and some burnt notes. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is burnt/dry with bold coffee.

Nate (3648) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 16, 2012
Mild acidic roasted barley with notes of coffee grounds, chocolate, and a bit of smoke. Lactose sweetness and nutty quality. Dark, dark brown-black body, clear with creamy light-tan lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts medium sweet with chocolate, coffee, coffee, and more coffee. Nutty bitterness and hops abound, with roasted barley and patent malt. Chocolatey finish, coffee bitterness but not rough. Smooth coffee after. Really good porter.
