3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2008 Wow, I love this. If a beer’s gonna have coffee in it then it might as well go head on and be loaded with it. This has that. Really fresh tasting too. I’m not coffee person but I love coffee flavor in my beer. Only complaint is that the palate is a bit weak; could stand to be a bit fuller/creamier.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This has one of the best coffee aromas of any beer I have had. That is the entire aroma, pure coffee. The flavor is light, but quite pleasing, again dominated by coffee and a light sweetness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle from Bev4less. Pours an opaque black color with a small khaki head. The aroma is rich with coffee and a bit of mocha. The flavor is all coffee and nothing but coffee. The mouthfeel is medium malty. The finish is short with lingering coffee. Overall: As a coffee lover this beer really appealed to me, this despite its being rather one-dimensional. Recommended.

This was beer number 22 for me at beerfest. It was rich and smooth. Other than that, I can’t remember.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
thanks kegbear. Very cool bottle with a Hawaiian word and translation under the cap. Aroma is dominated by the coffee but smells incredibly smooth. The taste is definite coffee but there is also a nice roasted taste with some malt finish. Very solid porter. Would buy again

pours opague black with a significant tan head. Malty. coffee aroma. Definate coffee flavor, strong and stale. Also sweet. Palate is thin, but foam on the stash, which is a plus!
