3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown in color with minimal head. Aroma is roasty malt and muted coffee notes. Taste is less coffee than anticipated and mostly roasted malt. Seemed a bit thin on the palate. Maybe due to a higher than expected amount of carbonation. Porters arent my favorite style and this isnt my favorite porter. Not recommended.

Pours a jet black motor oil appearance with a dark mocha thin head. Aroma of stale coffee, chocolate and hop bitterness. Taste follows, I'm not loving the stale coffee taste. Really nice mouthfeel, I just wish it tasted better

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)

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.

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.
