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, NCís Dynamite Roasting Co.

aracauna (3196) - 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.

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.

NachlamSie (2918) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 22, 2011
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. Iím not sure why this is rated so low. Itís 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.
