brewskis (123) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Pours as dark as night with a half finger mocha colored head that dissipates quickly and leaves a ring of lacing on the glass. Smells of breakfast roast coffee, some roasted malts, maybe a hint of chocolate. Mostly just like a cup of coffee; nothing that stands out. Taste starts with the bold roasted coffee as well as some milk chocolate. Then in the middle, the coffee flavor stays, but is accompanied with some creamy malt (probably oatmeal) that lightens the bold coffee flavor. Then the finish is much of the same, with bold, yet smooth coffee. Also the milk chocolate comes back and is accompanied with some peat flavors on the very back end. Becomes more bitter and a little more complex as it warms. Nothing really stands out with the smell and taste, but the palate is nice. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel with a light medium body. Nice carbonation presence as well. Hoppin Frog is spot on with the silky mouthfeel. Have had more complex coffee porters. Not bad, but Hoppin Frog has much better offerings.

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.

chinchill (3013) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Moderate coffee flavor is good but not great. Long lasting aftertaste. Medium-light body seems a touch too thin. Dark roasted grains struggle to peak through the coffee.
