Pours a nearly opaque dark brown color with a dark reddish-tan head. Coffee on milk chocolate aromas. A little thin for the style. Micropinching carbonation scrub starting midway. Smoky olive, fruity, coffee, and faint dark chocolate flavors. Pretty acidic.

Pours dark brown with a good sized, creamy head. Strong aromas of coffee and chocolate. Bitter chocolate flavor works well with the roasted malts, making a solid porter.

Barely translucent dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of coffee grounds and piney hops. Taste is dry, with a bitter hop and coffee grounds finish. Just not into coffee-grindy coffee beers.

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.
