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.

Pitch black pour little bit of an orange hue with a thin off white head .... Aroma of bitter dark chocolate, mostly bitter dark roasted coffee, caramel malts ... Taste of dark bitter chocolate, roasted coffee, caramel malts and bitter hops .... Has a nice bitter hoppy bite on the backend very well represented on the roasted side that’s for sure .... Finish is dry and bitter ... Body is thin but this is definitely a nice coffee porter

Bottle at porch Nite thanks to Brisben. Pours dark brown with one finger of creamy head. Aroma is some coffee some dark fruits and some maltiness. Flavor follows. Fairly sweet. A bit too much. But overall a nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 26, 2011
Bought a 12-pack of this and almost forgot to rate it. Pours nearly black, just brown around the edges. Pours with a small head, but otherwise mostly flat. Nose is roasty coffee and cocoa nibs. Yum. Taste is a bit thin, as is the palate. Extra love for the cheap price tag.

Dorwart (2498) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Medium brown colored head of varying sized bubbles. Nice coffee and roasted malt aroma with some dark fruit and berries. Color is a very dark brown. Big coffee flavor up front that lasts the duration of the drink. Moderate bitterness from the coffee along with some ash, grainy malts and juniper berries. Mouthfeel is a bit watery. Finishes dry and bitter with a lingering coffee aftertaste. A little bit unbalanced but still decent.

12oz bottle poured into snifter. Wow! Amazing coffee aroma. Can’t remember the last beer I had that was overwhelmed with this much coffee aroma. Flavor is bitter with hints of dark chocolate and coffee bean. A real treat and surprise.
