jbruner (2356) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Pours a deep brown on tap with nice cream head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is heavy on the coffee, maybe a little toasted nut in there. Taste is coffee, chocolate, and a hint of soy, coffee really lingers kind of dry on the mouth. Pretty solid, but maybe was expecting a bit more.

22FL oz bottle from Beers of Europe shared with Stuu666. Pours opaque dark brown, thin ring of tan head. Big coffee nose, green coffee beans, light chocolate. Taste is much more coffee, dark chocolate, roasted bitterness. Medium body, quite high carbonation. Not as smooth as the original, but still nice.

77ships (4135) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 7, 2014
655 ml. bottle sampled @ Pure Apricot Tasting. Thanks! Ruby blackish brown with no head,… Smells like a cup of coffee, sweetish, coffee beans and little else. Herbal taste upfront (could be old? Because these coffee beers tend to develop herbal & sometimes chilli notes with age), lots of cold coffee, paprika (same age remark), bitter coffee beans, light cheap chocolate, brown sugar. Low carbonation, light coffee body. Decent & nice but very one-note & touch too much herbal & paprika note + the bottle has no age as usual.

DocLock (7913) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Bomber from a PUB’R member who visited the brewery. Dark blackish pour with tan head. Nose was fresh coffee, cacao, vanilla. Tastes dark malty, with big coffee, vanilla, and a medium density.

SPDickerman (975) - Texas, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Pours pitch black with a large brown head. Smells strongly of coffee and hints of chocolate. Taste is bold coffee and chocolate medley. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Hoppin’ Frog Café Silk Porter finishes with a soft chocolate sweetness coupled with a pinch of bitterness.

Lectvay (143) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle courtesy of a great local swap box from jsquire. Very dark brown, but a little thin, generous tan head. Smells like coffee and chocolate. Nicely balanced flavors, roasty, coffee present but not overwhelming. A little light and fizzy feeling. Solid porter.
