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. Im 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 (2770) - 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 (1977) - 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.

651 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, tiny bubbled, well retained, beige head, with extensive lacing, over a clear dark brown (SRM 30) body......nose is medium coffee, lighter chocolate, minimal esters and hops......taste is moderate coffee, hints of chocolate, leading to a dry, moderately bitter, roasted malt, hop bitter finish......mouth feel medium, slightly sticky, alcohol warmth present, carbonation makes a light acid. As is so typical in beers with added coffee, which although used cautiously compared to many, is still somewhat too dominant. The result, hiding some of the other characteristics of both aroma and flavor. It is a good beer, but just too much coffee. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

Deep opaque pour with dark tan thinning head. Aroma is strong dark coffee & raisin. Flavor is very sweet with brown sugar, chocolate and coffee undertones. Finish remains sweet, slight alcohol presence, a touch of hoppyness. Wonderful coffee porter.

Bottled 30MAY12 Buddy has always raved about this one since working at the brewery. Pours a dark brown with a transient quilt of mocha foam, which falls to an etched surface with a slightly rising central dome. Smells of coffee, leather, cocoa, some roasted and toasted malts and a hint of fig - nice nose. Really soft flavor up front, not nearly as assertive as Id anticipated; the beer shares coffee with a sharp bitterness, some slight woody oxidation and hunks of cigarette, cocoa, and soil. Silky smooth with low carb at the medium on heavy mark of thickness. This is a pretty decent offering. Id like a bit more coffee, which surprises me as Im usually a hint only kinda guy. Wife would like this one quite a bit. Serving type: bottle 08-22-2012

Aroma has hint of coffee and booze. Very nice frothy head and lacing lays well. Taste has is a roasted malt flavor, light bitter booziness, slight chocolate and coffee flavor. Coffee flavor is light, but has a nice coffe grain taste on the finish.
