3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 itís 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

Pours a jet black motor oil appearance with a dark mocha thin head. Aroma of stale coffee, chocolate and hop bitterness. Taste follows, I'm not loving the stale coffee taste. Really nice mouthfeel, I just wish it tasted better

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black pour with a small bubbly brown head that fades. Nose is deep roasted malts, tons of coffee and a hint of chocolate. Flavor is roast, fresh coffee and some sweet milk chocolate. Finishes a bit dry and bitter. Very nice coffee porter.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours black with a medium-sized, persistent tan head that leaves some good lacing. Aroma is coffee, a touch of chocolate, maybe even vanilla, some roasted malt. Flavor is dominated by the coffee; it tends to blot out most of the other flavors. I get some roasted malt, some chocolate. Palate is too thin, and it needs some more malt to stand up to the chocolate. Iím also rather prejudiced against coffee porters; they always seem to taste like coffee dregs, no matter how good the purported quality of the coffee. I think Iíll keep my coffee and my beer -- probably my two favorite beverages -- in separate corners.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance - Black, fluffy tan head, sticky lacing
Aromas - Coffee, hops, earthy
Taste - Dry, roasted, earthy, hops, cocoa, fresh coffee
The flavorful coffee profile of this porter is amazing. While it is earthy and dry... the rich, fresh coffee notes create an undertone of mellow malty flavors. Finishes like a fresh cup of iced coffee, and with an almost sticky chocolate aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle from SoHo Organic Market, Elizabeth City, NC. Dark brown pour with a creamy khaki head. Aroma of strong coffee, rich dark chocolate, and dark roasted malts. Bitter coffee is most certainly noted in the flavor but is not overwhelming or unpleasant. It is more reminscent of cold coffee than anything. A good coffee porter.
