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, NCís Dynamite Roasting Co.

On tap at the Taco Mac in Peachtree City. A strong peat malt in a robust porter. Tasted similar to a Guinness, but not quite as smooth.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours jet black with a one finger tan head. Pretty good lacing. The smell is just wonderful. Coffee and dark chocolate dominate with some caramel. Smells like a cappuccino! The taste starts off great but doesnít finish well. There is a heavy coffee and caramel flavor along with chocolate, much like the smell. However soon after there is a strong bitterness that takes hold. Iím guessing it is from the coffee but it just seems to disrupt the flow of things. This is a good beer overall but I feel the coffee bitterness could be toned down just a bit. I would drink it again, though.

Highland strikes with a smooth, creamy, and coffee-laced treat. Didnít hit all notes I would like, but a good showing. Serving: 12oz bottle

Pours a jet black with fluffy tan brown head. Nose and taste is all coffee in the front and a bit of a tart finish. Not bad at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gachupines (853) - USA - JAN 15, 2012
Black with a tan head. Aroma is coffee and roasted malt. Flavor is strong coffee and some bittersweet malt. The body is the downside however. Overall, itís a bit thin though the flavor is nice. This is a really good coffee porter that could be great with a little more body.

DocJitsu (836) - Florida, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Pours a nearly opaque dark brown color with a dark reddish-tan head. Coffee on milk chocolate aromas. A little thin for the style. Micropinching carbonation scrub starting midway. Smoky olive, fruity, coffee, and faint dark chocolate flavors. Pretty acidic.

Tap. Pours a deep dark brown with thick toffee colored head. Aroma of coffee and roastiness. Taste of roasted malts with heavy coffee notes and hints of some sort of spice.

Coffee and hint of chocolate malt aroma. Smooth, no carbonation. Nicely balanced and the coffee flavor is perfect.
