COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This robust porter has a full body with some hints of chocolate from the chocolate malt and midnight wheat. The mild noble hop aroma showcases the roasty flavors and subtle fruit and spice notes of the artisan-roasted Fair Trade/Organic coffee of Black Mountain, NC’s Dynamite Roasting Co.

Predominately coffee aroma enhanced by the hints of earthy hops. Deeply black color capped by a moderate nutmeg head. Smooth coffee up front chased by mild chocolate with a nice roastiness on the finish. Decadent enough to serve with a warm chocolate desert. GREAT BEER !

Bottle into shaker. Jet black with tan dense head. Coffee, chocolate, caramel, roasty, slightly spicy aroma. Predominant taste is chocolate, with coffee, roasted nuts, cloves. Chewy palate with a bit of spice and carb. Excellent.

From bomber. Pours very dark with a finger of tan head. Aroma of molasses and coffee. Tastes of coffee mellowed by a touch of chocolate. Relatively mild for a coffee stout, but still definitely a coffee stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown, almost black. Minimal tan head that leaves very little lacing. Aroma of fresh coffee beans, milk chocolate, and toasted caramel malts. Taste is slightly smoky with coffee, chocolate, caramel, and a hint of licorice and vanilla with a backbone of toasty malts and a bit of earthy hop bitterness. Moderate length somewhat dry finish of dark malts and a slight hoppiness underlying. Palate is a bit thin with a slick texture and average carbonation. Overall a very nice coffee porter. Very fresh tasting and actually pretty crisp. An easy drinker that can also double as a dessert beer as well.

Kind of a boring coffee beer, but not bad. Has some bitter notes that balance the sweet roasty flavors and the strong coffee flavor.

Good crisp aroma with notes of coffee, vanilla, hazelnut. Dark brown almost black color. Malty bitter taste at the beginning with a very strong coffee taste (as expected), smooth finish with after notes of vanilla and almond and a hint of chocolate. Overall a well made porter

Tap. Pours a deep dark brown with thick toffee colored head. Aroma of coffee and roastiness. Taste of roasted malts with heavy coffee notes and hints of some sort of spice.
