Can. Pours a dark brown color with a medium off white head. A nice soft citrus, ash, chocolate and coffee nose. The flavor is rich sweet coffee, clear citrus, some pine. Light roast. This works quite well. Very good.

PorterPounder (7404) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2016
Portland International Airport - Made in Oregon Store - 22 oz bomber. Dark black as tar pour with a thick frothy off-white head, nice sticky lacing. Aroma is doughy with hints of chocolate and light whiffs of spruce. Flavor has some heated pepper notes, some faint citrus bitterness, hints of chocolate. Thick sticky mouthfeel - overall excellent. A steal at around $5 - how can beer be so cheap in Oregon?

12 oz can poured. This is probably the least weird beer from these guys Iíve ever had. And still, this is very unique. A dark bronze pour with a rocky foam head. Huge roasted malt and coffee aroma, which almost leads to a green pepper like reminder. Toasty. Coffee bean roasted up front flavor, with the same green pepper indicator in the flavor. A good chocolate flavor that sits behind. Has a just under harsh bitterness to round it out. Fun and unique beer overall. Clever name. Interesting to say the least.

Dogbrick (11607) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2016
Sample at the Salem brewpub. Dark brown color with a medium light beige head that diminishes steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of roast malt, pine and hops. Medium body with flavors of roasted malt, resiny hops and coffee. The finish is roasty malt and coffee up front with a mildly hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

chinchill (4327) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 23, 2016
Cascadian Dark Ale brewed with coffee.. 12 oz can with 6.4% ABV Clear dark brown body with a tan head. Moderately bitter overall and a bit higher in the aftertaste, with burnt coffee and grapefruit (hops) both contributing. Overall: too bitter and too much burnt coffee and char.

willisread (2538) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 28, 2015
Tap at BCS. Deep brown with no head. Burned coffee, piney hops and roasted malts on the nose. Body is thin and watery on the palate. Some light roasted vegetables. Bitter and astringent finish with burned malts and espresso. Harsh finish. Needs some work.
