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.

Bottle. Black colored pour with a tan head. Smell is huge on coffee and malts, little bit of chocolate and hops present too. Taste is bitter and like drinking coffee. After the initial shock it gets pretty smooth. Good beer, I buy it occasionally.

ContemplateBeer (1925) - 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.

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

Poured into a pint glass. Big thanks to SteveFinny for this. 4.0 A: Black color. Two fingers of light brown, creamy/frothy head. Retention is good overall and very good given the coffee involved. A short ring of lacing is left. 3.5 S: Smell of coffee dominates, though I will admit that it’s reminiscent of stale coffee. Plenty of roast, moderate sweetness, and hints of molasses. Still, decent. 3.5 T: Coffee rules the taste as well. Solid malty base. Chocolate shows up for the first time along with the molasses. Good. 3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Reasonably creamy and smooth. 3.5 D: Solid throughout. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-27-2012 18:35:01

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.
