   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
reebtogi (4310) - Edmonton, Alberta, - DEC 3, 2012
650ml bomber pours black in color with a generous light mocha head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aromas are of chocolate and coffee with a slight presence of dark fruits. Taste is a chocolate and raisin sweetness with a mild coffee bitterness. Medium to heavy body with light carbonation. This is the second stout/porter I have tried in a week that I have detected a fruity presence, strange yes, bad NO. Another unique and interesting brew. Highly recommended.

DuffMan (6974) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 19, 2014
Bottle, shared with JJ. Pours the colour of molasses (but not the thickness, thankfully), with a reddish-brown head. Bold coffee aroma and flavour, "raw" if that makes any sense (i.e. there is a fairly strong vegetal character in addition to the hearty roast), with dark chocolate notes. Roasty bitter finish. Silky body, delicious.

Pours nearly opaque black with deep ruby around the margins, a fat finger of tight beige head, great retention, excellent lacing. (5/5) Nose is creamy chocolate giving way to dark coffee and dark roasty malt. (8/10) Taste is moderate sweet and moderate bitter, coffee astringency. (7/10) Full body, smooth and creamy texture, lingering astringent finish. (4/5) Starts with loads of chocolate, and even a hint of milky creaminess, before the coffee takes over. The high ABV is very well integrated, with barely even a gentle warming on the finish to warn you of its presence. Generally pleasant, well-balanced, and well-behaved. The single biggest flaw - and it’s not a big one - is the way the coffee takes over with its intensity and astringency, through the middle and into the finish. A pleasant sipper regardless. (16/20)

Sample at GABF 2014. Comes almost black with a decent tan head. Aroma of coffee, malt, and chocolate. Taste is coffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate, and a bit of alcohol. Pretty good.

Nice and dark. This coffee porter has a nice smooth blend of chocolate malt and coffee that comes across on the tongue. It also feels silky on the tongue. I would definitely drink again.

"Not too shabby. Medium to full bodied and fairly smooth. ABV provides stregth of flavor but little heat. Lots of coffee and malted milk chocoldate up front with a low dose of bittering hops. Enjoyable fo sho."

Coffee porters are just a damn good idea. The dry, roasted sensations created by coffee are usually a killer match for the bittersweet characteristics of a good porter. Anubis does an excellent job at harnessing the properties of both beverages. The aroma has a nice mix of coffee and toasted malt. I would like to get more of the floral aroma of fresh coffee but I like the smell of earthy roast. Flavor is pretty deep, all considered. Coffee flavors are especially strong but you get some cocoa, too. I did, however, want a little more complexity. Anubis may not be the best Coffee porter out there, but I sure enjoyed drinking it.
