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....itís big. I like this style but not a great summer time beer. A little heavy. But great for a cool night after dinner beer.

jkwood04 (3749) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 3, 2013
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.

Fritz123 (922) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2013
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.

Bottle from smith4498 split with wife. Also a new state rating. Pours obaque jet black with an impressive tan head. Nose of black coffee, hint of chocolate. Taste with very coffee forward but is not overwhelming or astringent. Slight flowery bitterness flows at the end and keeps this choo-choo chugging down the tracks. Body is solid but seems a bit watery at times. Overall I am very impressed and enjoyed it very much.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Really enjoyed this one. Freshly brewed Kona coffee bean, dark bitter chocolate, and a touch of vanilla. Brown sugar and caramel base. Not terribly interesting but well executed...and the ABV is beautifully hidden.

22oz. bottle. I must have gotten a bad one, i see that it rates well among my fellow ratebeerians. Just for my own notes, I didnít like it. Nose was dominated by some kind of organic solvent. The taste wasnít much better. Vinegar and acetone comes to mind. Had to drain pour it. Hope to try again and rerate. I will keep my score neutral.

Glass: Nonic pint glass Opaque black in color with no highlights, two fingers worth of thick rocky brown head. Sweet molasses in the front of the aroma followed by vanilla, coffee, and alcohol. Slight hint of chocolate syrup, magnificent smelling beer. Tastes of coffee, chocolate, alcohol, and there is some other warming aside from the alcohol. Some kind of pepper maybe. Full bodied, thick creamy in texture yet seems to go down really smoothly. A lot of warming in this beer that really lingers in the finish. Serving type: bottle
