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.

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.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate roasted coffee/espresso, chocolate, black licorice, and faint bourbon. It pours a dark brown with some faint orange highlights. It has a one finger beige head that fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. There is some spotty lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with chocolate, camel, and a hint of molasses. The finish has moderate roasted coffee, light black licorice, and a hint of bourbon. It medium-full bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel.

Bottle shared by Brandon, thanks man! Pour is a standard dark brown with a small brown head. Aroma is a little off. Certainly roasted malt and coffee dominate but notes of pumpkin and some vegetal notes creep in too. Also light vanilla and light alcohol. Flavor is also notable for vegetal notes with roasted malt dominating. Coffee comes in later with some faint bourbon notes. Just a little off to me.

Clownoisseur (199) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - MAY 29, 2014
This was my favorite of the Framinghammer’s. Pours a dark brown, tan head, nice aromas of roasted malts and coffee...a slight booze. Taste is nicely balanced with loads of coffee, light bitter hops, then some caramel/toffee/butterscotch undertones before a slightly bitter and mildly boozy finish. Great stuff!

Bottle thanks to Russell. Pours a dark brown with small beige head. The aroma is strong roast, coffee bean, pine. Medium mouthfeel with sweet roast, coffee bean, caramel, with light bitterness. Very good.

A very special beer. Be warned: it has a lot of alcohol and you can smell & taste the bourbon. But that's what makes it special. It is bold and dark with a very nice finish on the palate. Had it on tap at a BBQ battle--delicious with pulled pork and ribs! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
