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.

Lovely and strong coffee taste and smell. Chocolate notes. Slightly heavy compared to more popular porters today.

Bottle.
Glass: Dogfish Head pub glass.
Appearance: Damn near opaque chestnut body with a murky visible section around the edges through light. A short but dense tan head rises from the body, forming a creamy coating when all is said and done.
Aroma: The aroma is almost milky. Hints of roasted coffee and creamer along with caramel. The coffee is mild, but overall the aroma is nice.
Taste: Mild and rather boring intro gives some coffee flavors, but the beer gets good by the finish with a mocha presence thatís very nice. Like powdered cocoa and mild coffee, sort of creamy chocolate and hints of caramel.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: This is a decent coffee porter, despite the coffee not being very prominent. I like the flavor out of this though, itís like a milk stout.

Transfer from BA review on 9-12-12- Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass Appearance Ė Served a deep brown colored brew with a one finger tan head. The head fades relatively fast to give a moderate level of lacing. Smell Ė The aroma is big in roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Mixed with these smells are some lighter notes of some brown sugar and a little bit of dark fruit. Overall, it is quite a tasty smelling brew. Taste Ė The taste starts out more roasted malt and brown bread in flavor. Soon the coffee comes to the tongue along with some of the brown sugar sweetness that was detected in the nose. As the taste advances further the chocolate then comes to the scene, melding well with the coffee flavor to produce a mocha taste. These flavors slightly bitter the brew in the end and leave a rather satisfying flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel Ė The body of the beer was rather thin with a carbonation level that was on the slightly higher side. The body was too light, and to allow the nice chocolate and coffee flavors to shine, a thicker body would be necessary. Overall Ė While it had all the right flavors, it lacked the body to hold them up. Just a bit more in the body and the brew would be wonderful, but without it, in some ways it is akin to drinking watered down gourmet coffee.

shigadeyo (3006) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - JUL 26, 2014
7/23/2014: Full Pint Perc E Bust Robust Coffee Porter... Coffee brown color with a dense nitro-induced head of beige foam. Mocha in the nose and lots of semi-sweet chocolate with coffee roast in the finish. But thatís just the first sip or two. After that, the beer takes a quick dive into BLAH. It tastes great again after drinking some water or another beer and going back to it though. Odd. For that reason, this beer just isnít that good. Despite the medium body and smooth nitro texture, it was tough to get this beer down without cleansing the palate to restore the flavor and my interest. Draught (pint) at the Sharp Edge Creekhouse in Pittsburgh, PA. Rating #56 for this beer.

355 mL bottle from the brewery. This is such a natural pairing to me, even more so than coffee and stouts. With this one, the roast from the coffee does not overwhelm the roast from the malt, and as a result this porter is beautifully balanced. Not too sweet, but not overly bitter. A touch of chocolate, but just enough to catch your attention. Very well constructed beer.

EithCubes (4840) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Bottle. Nose full-on coffee, more acrid and roasty than chocolaty or sultry, but itís a nice change of pace for my expectations. Also seem to be more grainy and toasted characters here (I donít say that as a negative). Dark brown pour is pitch in the glass, sudsy tan head. Lightly watery medium body at points, brisk carbonation thatís not too aggressive, medium bitterness that seems to be more from the coffee than hops. Ahh, thereís 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 itís coffee-heavy. Clean, not too sweet and certainly repeatable.

dmac (3999) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 11, 2014
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 (4770) - 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. Itís medium with mild carbonation and a slightly thin mouthfeel.
