3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
BOD 9/2/15. Nearly black pour. Outstanding head volume, lacing and retention.
Outstanding nose of rich dark roast coffee with a hint of roasted barley over a subtle chocolate.
Body is a bit light for the style coming in at heavy light body with a semi-smooth texture. Above normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a fair burst in the finish.
The flavor profile is good. It is balanced but not rich in flavor which hurts its complexity. Coffee is present and dominate, but not intense. The middle brings a subtle sweetness and also subtle hop bitterness. The finish is a slow fade of weak coffee.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark with red hue/ mahogony. Good creamy head, good spotty lacing. Aroma is sweet nutty roasty with almond vanilla coconut with cocoa, mild espresso/coffee.Slick lactose like. somewhat of a grassy earthy herbal. Same in taste which is saying a lot but aroma is more vivid than taste. Some mild acidity Good coffee porter. best one Ive had in a while. Well done for a bit milder/medium porter.

Bottle at home. All I can say is, throw me a beer that you brew, I’d soon move it.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours translucent mahogany from the bottle with a thin off white head that leaves no lacing in the glass. Aroma is almost nonexistent, maybe some cola in there but not much. Medium carbonation on the tongue with a heavy dark roasted malt flavor. Backend has a coffee aftertaste. Nice porter.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A- Black coffee.
A- Black color, black liquid, tan head.
T- Watery coffee, cocoa, roasty, slightly dry.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, roasty finish.
O- Not near as much coffee as I thought there would be. Very roasty and a tad watery. It’s not bad, but in my opinion it’s not where it should be. I loved Koko Brown and thought this would be a step up. It’s the other way around. Good beer but some fine tuning and more coffee would make it great.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of toasted malt and coffee, possibly a hint of chocolate. Dark, nearly opaque, brown color with a vigorous tan head. Starts with smooth coffee, swishing shows medium mouthfeel. Some bitterness rises along with toast. If there’s chocolate, it’s pretty submerged in the malt and coffee. Really different porter

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at the Kona Brewing Co, Hawaii Kai, HI.
Dark reddish brown color with a small creamy tan head.
Roasted malt, ashy dryness and coffee in the aroma.
The flavor is pure coffee... and some dark roasted malt. Can't get much more out of this.
