Appearance - Black, fluffy tan head, sticky lacing
Aromas - Coffee, hops, earthy
Taste - Dry, roasted, earthy, hops, cocoa, fresh coffee

The flavorful coffee profile of this porter is amazing. While it is earthy and dry... the rich, fresh coffee notes create an undertone of mellow malty flavors. Finishes like a fresh cup of iced coffee, and with an almost sticky chocolate aftertaste.

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.

Dark opaque brownish black pour. Small mocha head. Aroma is all coffee with heavy chicory. The porter is mostly coffee, especially espresso with roasted bark. Finish is smooth, slightly bitter and lasting. Quite an easy drinking porter, may have it for breakfast tomorrow. Quaff Score ( drinkability with hearty enjoyment ) 8 / 10

JDBaker11058 (1131) - Maryland, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Appearance: near black, with one finger of medium tan head and minimal lacing. Aroma: shockingly, coffee notes dominate a base of chocolate malts. Taste: acidic, almost citrusy roast coffee over bitter dark chocolate, black bread, vanilla, and salted caramel. Finish: bitter and a little lactic/acidic, with dry, roasty coffee notes remaining for awhile. Notes: A decent enough porter for sure, but the coffee note was just a bit too acidic for my tastes. Palate was also a bit watery. This much coffee needs more of a robust porter base.
