750ml from Total Wine, Greenville, SC. Roiling dark brown pour with a vigorous head. Roasts and papery malts in the aroma. Can tell this would have been better fresh. Crisp carb, a bit paper, chocolatey, faded coffee and hops. Okay.

Served on tap at Pizza Port OB. The appearance is a good looking coffee brown with a small head. Great coffee aromas with nice malts. The flavors are coffee with an acidic edge and cocoa. Nice oatmeal flavors and texture as well although is isn’t supper creamy. Medium roasty mouth. A nice coffee porter.

Bottle pours brown-black with think head. Aroma caramel malts, coffee. Taste caramel and dark chocolate, slight roast and coffee, vegetal notes. Palate full and creamy. Finish slight hops and roast. Alcohol not detectable..
Good but not great coffee stout.

A - pours near opaque mahogany with high fluffy brown head that disappears quickly and laces immediately. S - very simplistic aromas of burned malts, coffee grounds, and hints of wood and caramel malts. Very uninteresting. M - nice medium bodied porter. Simplistic tastes. Lingering dark malty ending. With a light alcohol ending. Lightly sticky sweet through out. T - vegetal and burned malts up front. Coffee grounds, toffee, and dark brown sugar. Lingering subtle soapy and malty not. O - overly simplistic coffee porter. 6/6+

If you like the strong coffee taste, this is your beer but if you are looking for a perfect blend of coffee and sweet caramel/chocolate taste, you will be disappointed. I like the sweet coffee taste myself, could not recommend this to any Porter/Stout drinker.

APPEARANCE: Pours an opque black with a tan head and no retention. Lacing noted. AROMA: Coffee, chocolate, and dark fruit greet the nose. TASTE: Rich, somewhat bitter coffee along with notes of dark chocolate. Hop presence minimal. I also detected a brief olive note (???). There is a burnt-bitter afertaste. MOUTHFEEL: This is a full-bodied brew. OVERALL: This is a very good coffee porter. Would definiatly drink again.

Had this on tap today, simply too bitter. I like porters, coffee, chocolate, even smoky, but this just sat wrong. Too bitter, like overly strong espresso.

On tap at (No shit) Fucking Applebee’s. Blow me over with a fucking feather! Poured clear black, with q reddish core. Thin tan head, fine lacing. Nose is tight, with black coffee, sweet licorice, molasses, and bitter chocolate. This isn’t a giving or generous nose, it’s very tight, but the complexity is there... Flavours of roast, soap, spice/heat, molasses, creosote. After a 15 hour fucking drive, sitting in a fucking Applebee’s at fucking midnight, this drank pretty fucking good.

750ml poured into snifter.
Black, less then a finger of tan, cream color head. Bottle conditioned not to much carbonation. Carmel, dark chocolate, roasted malts, and at the end roasted coffee for the aroma. Sweet right up front, chocolate and carmel hit right away finishes with the roasted coffee that blends amazing with the roasted malt. Almost a smokey after taste, but the coffee is more there. Medium to light body. Overall not great, but still pretty solid and very good. Cheers
