Bottle. Dark, dark brown, with little to no head. The aroma is awesome ... full of all kinds of roasty chocolate and coffee. This drinks like it should, too, for a coffee porter ... big, chewy notes of rich, nutty java. Delicious! (#4824, 11/18/2012)

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thunderstruck pours a rich deep brown black with a thin mocha head. Nose is rich nutty roast coffee with hints of carmelized brown sugar. Taste is a slightly dry coffee tasting roasty rich deep and nutty goodness. body is just a hair shy of silky and a bit bubbly. finishes with good bitters and black coffee. nice rich coffee flavored beer.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ProofBrewing. Pours black with small cream colored head. Aroma is obviously coffee, a little bit of toffee and chocolate in the background. Mouthful is suprsingly light bodied with mainly coffee and some other very minor spice notes. All in all a nice lighter coffee porter, but nothing special.

Dark black pour. Off white head. Atoms of coffee chocolate and light roasted character. Medium body dry coffee finish that lingers. Very tannic

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle- Aroma was very earthy with a boggy almost unpleasant undertone. Poured out opaque brown with a moderate tan head that dissipated quickly. Palate was thinner than I had expected or wanted. The taste saves this brew. Iced black coffee with a woody bite. Average or maybe a little better.
