4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark black brown color with a small mocha head. Nose is straight no chaser dark fresh espresso coffee. Taste is pure coffee, with heavy chocolate notes, perhaps a bit too light. But nevertheless finishes on the coffee notes, drinks quite easily and quickly secondary to the low ABV. Nice with a pardron. Quaff Score 8 / 10

This poured a medium brown color with a biege head. Aroma was of strong burnt coffee, light latte, chocolate, and roasted malt. Flavor was lots of coffee as well, a little thin and watery but great roast flavor with a hint of chocolate.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from giant eagle. Pours mahogany with mild finger width head. Settles nicely. Nose of a muted espresso and very smooth mouthfeel. Strong espresso and mocha fullness. Malty flavors here too but not really any floral components like the bottle says. True coffee porter - seems more coffee than porter but went great with BBQ bacon pizza.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle, recent release. Served at around 55F.
Pours dark brown with red highlights and a two finger tan head that holds a small, but good cap and leaves nice sheets of lacing behind.
Aroma is coffee, caramel, toffee, hints of chocolate, roasted malts, nutty, touch of vanilla. The coffee is pretty nice, definitely the strong suit here. Good strength.
Flavor is coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, caramel, toffee, a bit astringent, mild sweetness, mild bitterness, mild alcohol. Good Porter, but not as robust as others on the market these days.
Mouthfeel is medium-plus bodied, creamy, soft carbonation.
Pretty good coffee Porter. I’m a little spoiled here lately with some of the bigger coffee Stouts such as WnB & FBS, but this one is nice for something a little lighter in body and lower in alcohol, but with a good coffee aroma and flavor.

Thin pale brown pour with a mocha tan head. Sweet coffee in the nose, some diacetyl. Touch of caramel in the nose. Mild acidity and sweetness with a moderate bitterness. Bleh.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber----> tulip. Pours cola brown with a small lacey head. Aroma is strong coffee and sweet creamy caramel. Nice bitter black coffee taste with roasty milk chocolate. Nice dry chalky porter palate. Very good representation of the style. Solid but will not blow your mind or anything.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle: Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a clingy-lacing light beige head. Has a lightly sweet dark caramel malty nose with lots of fresh roasty coffee. Starts with average fullness and light malty sweetness with good coffee flavor and a touch of milk chocolate before a drier bittersweet roasted finish. Pretty true to style and drinkable.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz bomber of blah. Poured an okay looking thinner densiry darl black, sort of reminiscent of instant coffee, along with a smaller super light beige slightly creamy head. Aroma of rust and copper dominate along with some old coffee grinds and cold dark toast along with a touch of cream. Body is medium with soda like carbonatin and a quick almost instant fading aftertaste, creamy towards the end. Flavor is actualy worse then the aroma. Notes of burnt cold toast, old coffee beans, a hint of vanilla, earth, cream and some burnt chocolate/coffee. This is not good.
