Pours midnight brown w/ a shallow semi creamy froth. Aroma is big on dusty roasted coffee, man, right out if the bag. Medium nectar w / mellow residual effers. Flavors are pronouncedly roasted coffee bean w/ nuances of leather. Moderate malt. Finish is perfectly bittered w/ a slight English sourness. Overall: This is a well made porter. You want coffee ? Theres no mistaking this specimen. Full blown POT-O-JOE amigo.

Courtesy of DYCSoccer17. An interesting tobacco spit shade of brown. Really nice, staid layer of fine head on this one. First thing on the aroma is definitely some lightly roasted coffee. There is some sweetness apparent in the aroma as well, making the overall result come off sort of like Kahlua. Some roasted barley shines through in the aroma as well, along with some hazelnut. Flavor is shockingly dry compared with the sweetness implied by the aroma. Lots of coffee flavor up front, but none of the lingering bitterness you might expect. Finishes surprisingly smoothly and cleanly - rich and thick but not sticky. I get very little hop presence. Not a complex beer, but quite tasty and a unique take on the coffee beer.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 15, 2006
Bottle. Pours with a nice brown head, quickly diminishing. Dark brown/red, clear. Aroma is big coffee, sweet, like walking into a coffeehouse. Taste is less coffee, more roasted malt. Slightly sour. Hint of oxidation. Finish brings back the coffee bean, very clean. Body need some malt.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 15, 2006
Pours a deep dark brown with ruby highlights, and a moderate lasting head. Aroma is moslty chocolatey and nutty with hints of slick sweet caramel malts and sugar and hints of fresh roasted coffee as it warms. Slight yeasty flavor with chocolate malts and light roast- moderate amounts of coffee. A bit slick in the aftertaste, but overall a well made porter. Thanks Dillon.

skoisirius (1819) - Earth, Washington, USA - NOV 12, 2006
On tap in at the Tacky Tiki Bar in Edmonds, WA. Pours a rich, dark brown with a tanned head that has decent retention. The aroma brings a sense of roasted malts and chocolate, while having a fresh ground coffee smell that mainly takes over everything. The mouthfull starts off with a light sweet malt that progressively moves darker and darker through the finish. From the sweet malt comes a roasted coffee malt with dark bitter chocolate intertwined within the flavor. This takes up most of the lighter and silky smooth body as it moves towards a well done medium bitter hop finish. The coffee/hop note lingers for a bit after your last sip. Overall I was pleasantly surprised by how well done this brew is. Definitely heavy on the coffee tip, but quite balanced for a brewry thatís paird with Widmer and Pyramid. Iíd definitely drink this again.

Beaver (1413) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 12, 2006
12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with ruby highlights. It has a frothy tan head that quickly goes to a ring that leaves some lacing.

The aroma is roasted chocolate and coffee and some grains.

The flavor is subdued chocolate and coffee with some lactose. The mouthfeel is medium and watery.

Overall, not a bad coffeee porter. Itís a nice drinkable brew, but there are better coffee beers out there.

pinkzambia (1584) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 9, 2006
Bottle: Rich chocolaty brown with a tan head. The aroma is dominated by chocolate/cocoa shavings and coffee. The taste isnít bad. It has a real malty, in the chocolate shake sense of the word, flavor that abounds in the Kona coffee notes. The aftertaste is more bitter than sweet which is nice, kind of similar to the aftertaste of a cup of coffee. The feel is thin and watery. It leaves a chocolaty cardboard aftertaste in your mouth that is pretty nice.

Bottle. Blackish beer with a ruby tint. Tan head. Coffee aroma. Coffee and roasted malt flavor. Lingering coffee tones. lighter bodied than expected. A bit too much coffee and not enough beer for my tastes.
