Damico (2612) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Pours thick murky brown, viscous with a beige head. The aroma and flavor both bring sweet coffee slowly and then strong on the senses. This is the third time I have had it and the coffee is much sweet and less roasted than the past, but so delicious and smooth. There are spicy sweet almost rum like booze notes that please the palate.

Bottle at RBSDADG 2014 courtesy of Jay, I believe. Pours a rich blackish brown body with thin brown lacing. Aroma is rich, luscious coffee and sweet chocolate. Light brownie character on the nose. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy - with muted roasty notes and lots of coffee and chocolate. I preferred the vanilla-treated version to this, but still a knockout porter.

I brought the whole 2012 set to our monthly tasting.

A - Pours pitch black with a nice one finger tall tan head, slowly dissipating down to a light film, leaving small streaks of lace down the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of strong coffee, vanilla, bourbon, oak, coconut, chocolate and smokey dark malt. The coffee is quite strong while still being balanced with the other aromas, very nice work.

T - Starts off with the strong fresh brewed coffee slowly being joined by some mild sweetness, - mainly the chocolate and vanilla - toasted coconut, smoked malt and warming woody bourbon. Finish is pretty roasty with some mild sweetness, lingering long after the finish. Not as well balanced as the nose but still really nice.

M - Heavy body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, roasty feel with some nice sweetness to even it all out. A bit of tannins and very light booze dry the palate at the end of each sip.

O - This was probably my favorite of the three, just barely beating out the vanilla. The coffee really accentuated the base flavors and yet it remained easy to consume. Glad I could try this one and share it with everyone.

Bottle. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Rich coffee and sweet malts, lighter roasted malty notes, caramel, and chocolate. Rich and delicious.

Bottle; Pour is murky brown, with a fine bubbled, modest khaki head into this glass. It retains on the average / below average side, with moderate spotting presence. The nose is cereal grain, brown sugar, chocolate morsel - this being my 3rd framinghammer ; its what I expected. The coffee addition really works here (far more so than the vanilla). The flavor profile is more chocolate morsel, light chocolate cake, moving to the cereal grain, mild astringent note, brown sugar sweetness, and then it hits the roasted coffee bean near the finish line. Yet another terrific rendition from Jack’s!

Coffee, vanilla, booze, toast. Pours solid black with a quickly fading dark tan head. Medium bodied. Candy brown sugar sweet. Glassy smooth mouthfeel with just a little edge on the finish. Roasty, coffee, vanilla, toffee. Really outstanding.

tectactoe (2014) - Michigan, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Bottle: Thanks, Alex. Absolutely black, no light at all with a frothy ecru film that perches nicely on top. Aroma of superbly roasted, oily coffee beans, charred dark malt, a hint of spicy wood, warming booze, & a little bit of sweet raisin entering towards the back-end. Smooth, roasted coffee flavor complete with some roasted malts & dark cocoa. Just a faint hint of creamy sweetness balances the roast nicely without overdoing it. Not as much barrel present on the palate, but the coffee aspect makes up for it. Lightly creamy body. A delicious porter with a lovely coffee & chocolate, lingering finish.

Theydon_Bois (9084) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2014
Bottle at Jacks a Slapper tasting, thanks to LKS, 12/05/14. Cola black with a moderate tan covering that clears to a swirl. Nose carries a big coffee load, dark chocolate, spice, light roastings. Taste comprises much the same, coffee less intense than on the nose, coffee grinds well evident, roast malt, light vanilla, dark chocolate. Medium + bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Solid coffee fuelled porter.

Bottle thanks to tectactoe for sharing. Almost black pour with a small foamy ring of head. Aroma is packed with medium roasted coffee, chocolate fudget, chocolate cake, and oak. Tastes like fresh roasted coffee and chocolate cake. Some light sweetness up front and then the bitter coffee lingers in the finish. Love these framinghammer beers.
