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.

Tap at House of Beer in Orlando. Dark pour with a light brown head. Fantastic roasted coffee, with a bit of caramel and chocolate. Rich coffee grounds on the nose. Excellent.

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 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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)

Panzuriel (1312) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - NOV 9, 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.
