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. Dark black not much head retention. Aroma is nice amounts of coffee. Light chocolate.

Flavor is bitter coffee bean that just turned. Light caramel and a weak hop in the back ground. Really bitter. Pretty astringent and basic.

jkwood04 (4955) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 24, 2015
22oz bottle in a teku. Pours very dark brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of coffee, some roasted malts with light notes of caramel and chocolate, hints of bitterness from hops, and some light dough. Flavor the same but it has a very nice balance of coffee and the beer. Average texture and carb. A pretty good beer, that was actually better than I was expecting.

Aurelius (4773) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Tarry, creosotic aroma. Dep clear cola brown-black. Standard US longneck, good label. Quick cascade and one-finger, lasting tan head in a pint. Good. Acidic coffee, chickory, toasted soy nuts. Dry with bitter cocoa. Medium body. Long char-coffee finish. Not for sissies. A little sweetness and very light soapiness in the very end. Very good wit bacon and basil pizza. Bottle, Momo’s.

ChainGangGuy (4595) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUL 14, 2012
12 ounce bottle - $1.69 at Charlie’s Beer and Wine in Marietta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours what appears to be an essentially black body with a full, thick finger of medium-tan-hued foam.

Smell: Roasty, coffee-accented nose with a touch of bitter chocolate and increasingly fainter, lighter notes of caramel, pale malts, spicy hops, and fruit.

Taste: Roasty coffee and bitterish chocolate mingled with the base pale malts. Some thin traces of caramel, maybe even a fat drop of molasses in there as well. Very low fruitiness. Modestly spicy hops aided a bit by the roast, the carbonation, and wheat. Roasty finish with some of that dark chocolate lingering into the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation, though there’s an added skosh of crispness on the tail end of the swallow.

Overall: A solid, enjoyable coffee-infused porter.

kaser (4569) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Crazy Expresso taste. Coffee beans and water. Black pour with white head. Sampler draft at bier garden in Asheville. Almost too much coffee going here but still enjoyable.

emacgee (4450) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Pours dark black with chestnut brown edges and one finger of tan head. Nose is very nice, molasses and sweet java notes. Lots of chocolate and a light roast. Coffee flavor is a tad weak. Spent grounds and bitter bakers chocolate. Noticeable acidity from the coffee and dark grain. Medium body with a slightly thin feel and almost absent carbonation.

nearbeer (4379) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 22, 2011
Growler. Opaque with a lasting disc of cream. Aroma is all coffee with maybe a hint of piss and dark chocolate. Taste is the same but weaker, like lots of old sourish, weak and cheap coffee, with some sour milk chocolate and dry grass. Light-medium body is watery, well-balanced, and has light-medium carbonation. OK, but disappointing brew, from this normally near-top-notch regional brewer.
