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.

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

ContemplateBeer (1818) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Aroma: Mellow, yet pervasive coffee profile in the nose, a little fudge, slight earth. Appearance: Dark garnet black pour with a foamy mocha head that settles into a skin. Flavor: Coffee up front, and mostly prevalent throughout; some hints of chocolate and an earthy aftertaste. Coffee shows off a little blueberry and cream as it warms. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, astringent finish. Overall: Standout coffee flavor here, but I would personally like a bit more porter character.

Pours a dark dark with a creamy tan head and aroma of coffee. Taste is great, heavy coffee with roasted malt and chocolate flavors and a slight bitter finish. Drinkable, nice brew, can taste the coffee throughout.

Bottle pour opaque dark brown with moderate tan head. Nose lots of coffee, roasted malt, but a slightly odd earthy undertone. Taste mostly coffee then dark roast, hint of dark fruit. Light bitterness.

Bottle. Pours a deep brown color with a thin tan head. The aroma is fairly subtle and basic; coffee grounds, dark chocolate, and notes of this paper bag smell. Flavor is slightly roasty with coffee grounds dominating the taste. Nothing bold or creamy though and the body is a touch thin. Like a basic black cup of coffee. Some dark chocolate again mixes in here, with perhaps some oats, and caramel too. This finishes a little dry and roasty but also kind of empty. Pretty basic but not bad at all.

zizzybalubba (1691) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 30, 2011
12 oz. bottle from SoHo Organic Market, Elizabeth City, NC. Dark brown pour with a creamy khaki head. Aroma of strong coffee, rich dark chocolate, and dark roasted malts. Bitter coffee is most certainly noted in the flavor but is not overwhelming or unpleasant. It is more reminscent of cold coffee than anything. A good coffee porter.

JDBaker11058 (1647) - 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.
