2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
7/6/13. 22oz bottle shared by Brian at his moving/cellar cleaning party. Black pour, maybe more of a dark, dark brown, with a small khaki head. The nose is hit right away with a touch of sourness and big green pepper aspects from the coffee... sour green peppers - my favorite! The flavor is a bit less peppery, but still coffee and veggies, again with a touch of sourness. Not great.

Beautiful pitch black pour with a thick brown head. Delicious coffee flavor on top of a strong porter, but an amazing coffee aftertaste.

Dark fruity aroma. Interesting taste, fruity up front with some kind of tangerine or coriander hint or some noise, tasty coffee on the back. Overall pretty good.

Smells a bit like coffee which was expected. Taste is a little sweet like a fruit (plum or date) or some other nonsense like that. Aftertaste is dry and coffee like.

Love this brew. Pours big, tastes big, damn....it’s big. I like this style but not a great summer time beer. A little heavy. But great for a cool night after dinner beer.

22oz bottle in a plastic cup. Pours dark brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of coffee, roasted and dark malts, caramel malts, dough, and light hops. Flavor the same, a little light on the flavors. Average texture. A decent porter.

Bottle share. Snifter pour. Aroma was light overall of coffee, malts and toffee. Kind of smelled as a barley wine. Taste was very good with chocolate, coffee, sweet vanilla, cinnamon, and roasted nuts. Smooth mouth. Spice aftertaste.
