Heathen (1458) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 22, 2012
THOUGHTS: Just sort of an average to nice porter with a little coffee added to it. The light coffee notes in the aroma were pleasant, but the coffee in the flavor was a little more like old, nearly stale coffee and coffee grounds. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a dark brown that was nearly black in the glass with red highlights and an average, dark tan to light brown head that kept a thick sheet and left excellent lacing. The aroma had moderate roasted malt, coffee and sour coffee; slight hops; slight cherry; and a little tobacco. The initial flavor was slightly sweet, light to moderately sour and lightly bitter; while the finish was slightly sweet, moderately sour and light to moderately bitter. There was coffee, sour coffee, sour cherry, roasted malt, cream, and slight hops. The medium body was sort of creamy and a little dry with fizzy and rather tingly carbonation and a lightly astringent finish.

Bottle. Nose full-on coffee, more acrid and roasty than chocolaty or sultry, but it’s a nice change of pace for my expectations. Also seem to be more grainy and toasted characters here (I don’t say that as a negative). Dark brown pour is pitch in the glass, sudsy tan head. Lightly watery medium body at points, brisk carbonation that’s not too aggressive, medium bitterness that seems to be more from the coffee than hops. Ahh, there’s the chocolate, the richness, but without accompanying velvety feel. The malt does seem diversified and relatively well developed, though, and I do like the overall blend, even if it’s coffee-heavy. Clean, not too sweet and certainly repeatable.

12oz bottle from Wine Academy. Poured a good looking pitch black with a smaller dark beige frothy head. Aroma of black coffee, cream, bunrt toast, roasted malts and a touch of copper. Medium to slitly thinner body, average carbonation that foams up a bit to add some creaminess. Flavor of bunrt wet toast, cream and a finish of coffee beans. I like the aftertaste better than the actual flavor.

Oh yeah that is a perc e product. Nose is heavy on the dark chocolate, but as it warmed the coffee became noticeable. The coffee kicks in with the palate, especially at the back. Very nice. This is well balanced and enjoyable. Appearance is standard porter with a spotty lacing pattern.

Pailhead (4622) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle: The aroma consists of milk chocolate, coffee, light caramel, and a hint of vanilla. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a small soapy tan head that quickly fades to a thin ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate chocolate. There is a hint of fruit in the middle. The finish has moderate roasted coffee, light nuts, and a touch of vanilla. It’s medium with mild carbonation and a slightly thin mouthfeel.

Bottle, thanks sevenhokie! Aroma is pretty much all coffee, not feeling thins one already. Pours black with a huge, light tan head and very little lacing. Taste is big-time coffee with a lot of bitterness. Finishes very bitter with the coffee lingering on the palate for a long, long time. Coffee fans rejoice, this is definitely your beer, but I am not a fan. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ROGUE (2085) - Newark, Delaware, USA - SEP 29, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a dark chocolate brown color with a finger and a half tan head. The smell is full of malts, chocolate, and fresh coffee. Coffee is right up front and is surprisingly strong. Taste starts off with a big dose of bitter coffee slowly giving way to a mix of dark roasted malt, chocolate, bitter hops, and some light fruitiness. The finish is mostly dark roast with some light bitterness. Medium body and ample amounts of carbonation.

suprchunk (2085) - Crestview, Florida, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Dark brown pour. Bordering on black. Small tan head. Not much lacing, but there is some. Smell is of malt and a wee bit of chocolate. Taste is the same with some vanilla mixed in. I don’t get much coffee at all. But it is still a good porter.

MarkSachon (553) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 27, 2013
12 oz bottle. Loved the label but the rest of the brew is rather weak. Could use a lot more of everything, especially coffee flavoring. The gravity is around what you’d find in a Budweiser. Very disappointing.

DocJitsu (835) - Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Pours an opaque dark brown with a lighter mocha colored head. The head vanishes relatively quickly. There are a few glints of cola brown around the bottom edge when held to the light. The head never gets any larger than 3/4 of a finger. Aromas of sorghum in a glass jar and coffee are noted right away. Mildly creamy mouthfeel. Some fig and sorghum competing with smoke and coffee. Stewed vegetable medley at the finish.
