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.

@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque brown-black with a light head cover, thin streaks of lace. Aroma is healthy earth, malt, and coffee. Taste matches the aroma: roasted malt, dark, moist earth, coffee, and dark toast are all present on a base of mild bittering. All moves smoothly to a lingering finish in which no additiopnal bittering is necessary. Very palatable, I’m having it tonight in front of TV and a fire with Triscuits and Havarti cheese. It’s a good night.

Bottle pour opaque dark brown with moderate tan head. Nose lots of coffee, roasted malt, but a slightly odd earthy undertone. Taste mostly coffee then dark roast, hint of dark fruit. Light bitterness.

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.

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 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....

6 Jan 2015, bottle. Black. Nose is really big, bitter, dark espresso. Med body and moderately fizzy. Tastes like dark chocolate with hints of chili pepper. Faintly acidic. Nice enough.

Tastes like a breakfast stout. Strong coffee flavor as expected. Very hearty. Robust. Creamy. Surprisingly hoppy aftertaste.

Pours a dark brown color with a tan head. Aroma is pretty good. Roasted malts and chocolate with a lot of coffee. Flavor is also mostly coffee with some roasted malts and chocolate. Pretty impressed with this brew.

Pitch black with very little head. Aroma contains some chocolate and coffee. Flavor is rather bitter with some coffee, dark chocolate, and licorice. Full bodied and bitter. Overall a good beer.
