   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
Chuckaduck (674) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Bottled March 2013. Poured 12/25/14. Opaque brown-black with a thing light-brown-beige head. Aroma is alcohol, bourbon, vanilla, banana, sweet, caramel, toffee, roast malts, coffee. Taste is bourbon, vanilla, leather, nutty, banana, slightly floral, earth, roast malt, coffee, alcohol; finish is bitter roast malt, dark chocolate. Oily laces. Low carbonation. Oily but full mouthfeel. Certainly, with the age this bottle has, the coffee has fallen off. Still, quite an excellent example of the style and lagers in general. Nice.

Un corps voluptueux et soyeux supporte les petits fruits sucrés de la levure lager et de l’éventail de céréales. Le café se présente sous forme de mocha et sa torréfaction est minime. La plus ronde est délicate de la série jusqu’à maintenant.

deekyn (1304) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 27, 2014
A - pours an almost opaque cola brown with no head. Bvwry thin tan ring of bubbles. S - nose is a bit sweeter than the base with a toasted simple sugar, caramel, and coffee. The barrel character seems muted by the coffee addition. It's a combo between the grainy notes of the base with the sweet barrel character, with coffee. Sharp boozy end. M - full bodied. Sharp booze up front to a malty palate with coffee bitters end. T - the taste is all the characters of the base and the barrel version with a nice coffee addition. Toasted caramel, tobacco, leather, sweet barrel character and coffee. O - a nice variant. The coffee tones down the barrel character. 3.8

j12601 (7248) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Bottle that I took to RBSDG at the Dad Pad. Pours a deep black with a thin beige head. Roast and cofee, chocolate, warming vanilla tones. Cocoa, warm coffee, no pepper notes which is nice. Supremely smooth, no alcohol showing up. Long roast and coffee, hints of spicy chocolate. Lovely.

Bottle. Lighter and smoother than the original with light coffee on the finish. Excellent mouthfeel. Light but rich. Excellent.

Bottle. Identical to the base beer but with some coffee grinds in the taste. Not bad.

Damico (2744) - 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.

jredmond (5806) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUL 27, 2014
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.
