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.

crajun (1023) - , Texas, USA - FEB 27, 2015
bottle dated 12/13 to glass. Wonderful coffee aroma - one of the better coffee aromas... big dark brown froth head. Taste was better cold; as it warmed it seemed more watery and less flavorful. coffee was main flavor with roast....

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.

Bottle at porch Nite thanks to Brisben. Pours dark brown with one finger of creamy head. Aroma is some coffee some dark fruits and some maltiness. Flavor follows. Fairly sweet. A bit too much. But overall a nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ABC PCB growler. Gorgeous brown pour with a foamy, tan head that lasts forever. Big roasty aroma with a hint of coffee. Nice flavor that hints at coffee but also reminds me of roasted peanuts. Nice.

Pint pour. Very thin to nonexistent lacing on glass. Coloring is dark muddy brown. No noticeable coffee nose as I was expecting. Good taste to the middle and back of the tongue; coffee is noticeable. Nice lightly bitter finish at the front of the tongue...like coffee. I like this beer and wanted to rate it higher. Just could not find the justification to do so.

Draft at the Rookery. Pours dark brown with a creamy beige head. Smells like coffee, cocoa, chocolate, roasted malt, and light wood. Tastes like dry roasted malt, chocolate, espresso, earth, and light wood. Medium body and carbonation.
