12 pack purchased from Green Life Chattanooga. This is basically black with a long lasting tan head. Aroma has true, tasty coffee with hints at dark chocolate. I’m not sure why this is rated so low. It’s an above average coffee beer, for sure. It may not have the completeness of something like Pisgah Valdez or Bells Java Stout, but the genuine coffee flavor is considerable. Malts are clean and balance things out nicely.

Sampled at the brewery. It poured a clear brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of moderately roasted coffee and spices. The taste was medium to heavy roasted dark coffee with some bittersweetness and a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration.

On tap at Cypress Street. Nicely roasty coffee aroma. Smooth and easy to drink porter with a touch of character but not overpowering in any one dimension. Soft sweetness. Caramel and chocolate flavors. A little grassy bitter on the back end.
