Draft. Black with little head. Weak aroma of coffee grounds. Taste is surprisingly hoppy. Lots of citrus and coffee. Pretty tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Opaque brown/black with a short-lived two finger tan head, curtain of lace. Taste and aroma both reek of coffee; taste begins with malt which gives way to a nicely semi-bittered coffee. All ends in a nice balance. Very drinkable, especially as an accompaniment to dessert. Recommended.

The aroma delivers on the promise of coffee, as does the flavor. Coffee dominates, but there is a caramel sweetness behind it. Very complex thanks to the blend of malts. Ends dry and bitter, but more of a coffee bitterness than one from hops. Light and smooth body, if a bit watery. Very nice coffee porter.

Drake (9999) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2013
12 ounce bottle from House of 1000 Beers, New Kensington. Pours a dark brown color with a thin creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of well balanced coffee and chocolate with some mild roast and earth. The taste is bitter roast, bitter coffee, bitter chocolate, a mild ashy note, herbal hops and a creamy finish. Medium bodied, decent balance. Quite nice.

Daytonbeer (685) - Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2013
Pours near black with tan head and no lacing. Really nice aroma of espresso and chocolate. Followed by an average taste and thin watery consistency. Taste is malty and hoppy with coffee and toffee.

Braudog (5962) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 15, 2013
Bottle. This black beer shows a bright red sheen when held to the light. The head quickly settles into a small tuft, nothing more. The aroma hints at sweet, milk chocolate. But the beer drinks with a bit more of a java base, with a sweet yet stark finish. (#4986, 4/15/2013)

Tmoney99 (11551) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2013
Bottle. Poured dark brown color with an average tan frothy head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate roasted coffee and chocolate aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium sweet roasted coffee flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good coffee porter.

Travlr (14669) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 3, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Eric at Churchkey, thanks! Almost a gusher, but not quite. Dark maroon brown color, massive brown head that settles to a tanned inverted nipple. Aroma of coffee grounds. Taste is coffee and cocoa. Not bad.
