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. 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.

aracauna (3084) - Georgia, USA - APR 14, 2012
Pours nearly black, nearly opaque. Nice chocolatey malt. Pretty solid porter, although the name makes it sound like a bigger deal than it really is.

Elwood (3079) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Chips Wine & Beer. It pours a black color with a small but lasting tan head. The nose has a ton of fresh ground coffee. The flavor is solid but not overbearing with a roasted bitterness and lots of fresh, black coffee flavor. Once the best uses of coffee in a beer that I’ve had. Medium to full bodied but the roastiness ends up dry on the back end making it very drinkable. Great brew.

ReggieDunlap (3054) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Pours dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma has fresh mild coffee and roastiness. Flavor has nice fresh roasty coffee...a light and faint spiciness that almost comes off as hot pepper. Mouthfeel is light and silky with a roasty/bitter coffee finish...just a hint of a burn...id swear there was hot pepper in this. Fairly one dimensional but tasty.

Strong coffee flavor with a touch of oats. Has a dark toasted malt bitterness . Hops are there but not dominate. This a fantastic beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle courtesy of ygtbsm94. Earthy-peaty-nutty coffee and some light chocolate aroma. Black brown with a large brown head, nice creamy lacing. Roasty coffee, earthy peat, light ash and slightly acidic flavor. Body on the light side of medium, moderate carbonation. Very nice.
