COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For this special beer we took our Pig Iron Porter recipe and jacked it up to 9%ABV, and then we took 35 pounds of Nicaraguan coffee beans and cold steeped them for 3 days, and infused the beer with the resulting extract. A massive, dark beer with lots of dark roasted grain and coffee flavors.

Nice package. Heavy coffee aroma and good balance. Pours black with good head and no lacing. Thick texture. Bitter finish. Very coffee head - a touch too much almost. Bottle thanks to Sammy, Pino or Liam - forget to ask about this one.

750 ml bottle to oversized snifter (shared with the Mrs.; thanks watson1977). Looks good; a fairly opaque dark brownish-black with beige lacing. Smells good too;dark malt, chocolate, and coffee. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Great beer!

750ml cork and caged bottle given to me by my wife for Christmas ’12. Poured a medium density pitch black body with a smaller to medium sized tight foamy beige head. Aroma gets better with warmth. Notes of mostly black coffee with some light sugar notes, cream, dark toast, old coffee grounds. Medium bodied with rather lively carbonation and a burnt coffee finish that lingers. Flavor is the same as the aroma with a touch less sweetness, mostly dark coffe with light cream and a hint of sweetness along with burnt toast. Good stuff IH.

As ’Afternoon Delight’. Opaque black beer, good size tan head. Minerally dark malt nose. Crisp palate, semi dry. Minerally dark malt. Not roasty or bitter. Nice streak of unsweet dark chocolate. The coffee kicks in, it’s quite mild and with a trace of cream. Finishes smooth and minerally.

This poured a nice darker cola color with a beige head. Aroma was lots and lots of green coffee, dark and stringent, with roasted malts underneath. Flavor was very similar peppery and ashy coffee, with roast and mild bakers chocolate. Pretty solid.

BillWyce (700) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2012
From notes: Bomber purchased @ Collegeville location, labelled as "Afternoon Delight". Poured opaque brown-to-black with a 2-finger caramel-colored head that thinned quickly. Lots of bubbling along the glass. Deep, rich coffee aroma with a slight roasty note. Full-bodied, almost viscous, with a long finish. Deep, roasty coffee flavor with a nutty note beneath. As it warms a bit, the bite from the coffee becomes smoother. Very good.
