Tastes like Allagash Black brewed with coffee. A superb belgian style coffee porter. Very sessionable.

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2013 Spectacularly fresh (though Iíve only ever had it straight from the brewery). A strong, fresh coffee aroma that belies the more potent chocolate taste. Pours a dark brown, similar to a dark roast coffee. Light enough to drink on a warm day, full-bodied enough to keep you warm when thereís a chill in the air.

Tap @ Weezieís Kitchen. Very dark with not much head. Very distinctly smells of a nice dark coffee and maybe cocoa nibs- dry and bitter and roasty. Flavor pretty much follows. Nice mouthfeel- not too heavy, not too sweet, not too carbonated. So far, Iím liking what these guys are putting out. Bummed that Iím not with the other Richmond guys tasting this... Have a few for me guys.

Kinz (3188) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Richmond 17th, 10th beer I think. Big coffee aroma, go figure. Flavor is coffee, light chocolate, faintly spicy finish. Just a touch acrid, but this was only released a day or two ago, so the acid will fall off a bit. Dry finish. Another really good beer from these guys.

Growler shared by Kinz at the 17th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering, 1/28/12. Pours a hazy brown color with a medium creamy head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of cocoa and coffee. The taste is chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, faint fruity notes and vanilla. Medium bodied, average carbonation and creamy texture.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 8, 2012
Draft at the source. Very dark brown color, medium tan head, solid lacing. Aroma of burnt toast, vanilla, burnt espresso and dark cocoa. Taste is coffee grounds, black pepper and a spicy bite at the finish. Medium body. Nice stuff.

Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. Really tasty. Big chocolate and coffee notes and just enough yeast to make it unique. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This was tasted at the Richmond brewer. I purchased a growler for the Super Bowl game 2012. The New Ways group was gathered for the beer tasting. I am unsure why the porter is classified as an Imperial Stout. The aroma was of coffee and a hint of chocolate. The coffee was not overpowering. The carbonation is average for this medium body porter.

Poured from bottle at SAVOR. Poured a dark brown color with a small tan head. Aroma was notes of espresso, dark chocolate, vanilla notes. Flavor was chocolate, earth, a touch of coffee. Mouthfeel was a bit thin for what I expected, but I enjoyed the flavors. Seems real hit-or-miss on here. Perhaps some QC on the coffee beans?
