patricks110 (1620) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 8, 2014
A goos brew when I consider the whole experience. On tap a pint of this is a monster. The pour is completely opaque and dark black with a finger of sticky tan head. The nose is reserved but poignant with big notes of cocoa amd espresso with big robust roasted malt aromas. Overly sweet in the middle with a ton of heavy roasted notes along with bitter dark espresso. The finish has a moderate bitterness but alot of residual sweetness. Overall this beer has a solid profile of coffee and roasted malts but is overly sweet

Pours a deep dark brown, nearly black color with light brown head. Deep sweet malty aroma, caramel toffee notes, light roast and coffee character. Sweet, roasty, astringent, hot, finishes sweet with light notes of caramel.

Draft at Birch & Barley. Pours very dark brown with a thin, fizzy light brown head. Tastes like very strong espresso, bitter chocolate, booze. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like strong, sweet chocolate syrup and astringent booze.

Pours black coffee with tan, thick creamy head. Aroma - Brown bread, French roast coffee, hint of dark fruit Taste - Brown bread taste, very dark roasted coffee and malt, raisins, slight chocolate note but quickly over taken by coffee. Palate - very bready mouthfeel with a nice tart coffee finish that lingers. Very excellent beer with a great strong flavor. I’m a big fan of the coffee in the taste, but the aroma is dominated by coffee and not very balanced. Very enjoyable for sipping, but also very drinkable if hanging out with friends. Highly recommended.

chinchill (1810) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 25, 2014
22 oz bottle served in a Porter Bar goblet. A: Pours very dark brown, coffee colored, with a small tan head that quickly reduces to a thin partial coat. Decent lacing. S: Aromas of sweet and dark roasted grains and coffee dominate. Some fruit and alcohol esters. Flavor: Sweet and chocolate malts with a solid dark roasted grain taste yet minimal burnt elements. A mildly bitter finish with both roasted malts and coffee. M: Full bodied with moderate carbonation and very smooth. O: A good coffee porter but neither the porter base nor the coffee are exceptional.

shadey (1887) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 10, 2014
22oz bottle. Very dark bown pour with webs of dark tan head. Aroma is chocolate coffee and smooth. Flavors are also well blended and smooth. Good body. I would love to drink more of this if the alcohol wasnt so high.
