jbruner (2986) - 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.

ippopotamo36 (803) - Rome, ITALY - SEP 3, 2015
Bottle at a tasting in Rome 4:20 pub on 27/08/2015, courtesy of Dino. Thank you Dino. Last of a memorable tasting with good beer friends. Pours coffee bean color, small bubble ivory cap. Nose: moka machine coffee leftovers, grounded beans, Caffe Borghetti. Mouth: round soft bitterness, Turkish coffee soul (powder feel). Tasty.

Disclaimer: I do not drink or like coffee Heavy coffee aroma with chocolate and roasted malt. Pours black with a large light brown head. Starts out sweet and finishes with a medium bitter that I associate with coffee. Light to medium body with a somewhat creamy texture. I have a hard time rating this because I’m not a coffee drinker. I imagine it’s exactly what someone would expect from a cafe porter, so I rated it as such and not necessarily with my bias against coffee.

Bomber. Strong coffee aroma with dark chocolate and roasted malt. Pours black with a thin light brown head with decent retention and good lacing. Starts with rich dark chocolate and roasted malt flavors to go with the smooth mouthfeel and rich body. Finishes smooth with the previous flavors getting overpowered by strong coffee flavors, but it's not too bad as the chocolate really balances out the coffee well. Better than I expected given that it was brewed with coffee.

AshtonMcCobb (4078) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 11, 2015
On keg @ Brewdog Bar, Edinburgh. Appearance - matt black with a lovely crema head. Nose - definitely coffee, but well integrated with the dark chocolate and creamy notes expected in the Porter base beer. Taste - yep, mocchachino. Creamy, slightly oatmeal backdrop. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a balanced creamy finish. Overall - yes, very enjoyable indeed. Even though I’m not a big fan of coffee in beer.

nearbeer (4240) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 28, 2015
650 ml. pours opaque ebony with a small spot and ring of foam. Nose is quality espresso and dark chocolate. Big first taste of espresso bean, then some dark chocolate, lightly tart blackberry, dark toasted grain, vanilla and cookie dough. Near-medium body has a smooth, low-medium carbonation and a great balance from all directions.
