Had many laughing dogs and i must say iím disappointed with this one. Lactate taste in the finish. This coffee porter is missing the thickness one would expect at 9% abv. Almost a pop n pour for me, but this is alcohol and iím not going to let my sink consume it. My house is only 17 years old so it would be like serving a minor.

Aroma: chocolate, pepper, coffee and malts. Appearance: nice dark brown/black color with mocha color head. Taste: coffee right away with hints of chocolate and spice. Very good porter, ranks up there for me. Getting this again!

Poured from a bottle. Part of a blind taste test. Great head. Dark caramel color. †Sweeter chocolate and coffee, †but not Mocha. My wife got this for me as a birthday present, and she is awesome!

Deep dark brown, touch of dark red around the edges. tight light brown foam. Aromas coffee, chocolate, toast. Taste is big, bold. Big sweet, moving to big bitter. Rich roast throughout. Creamy mouthfeel. Little bit of tingly booze on the finish. Very nice.

Large Bottle - Rich black color. Notes of chocolate and dry roasted coffee aromas, slight alcohol smell as well. Very dry taste. Sweet porter taste but I donít taste much of the coffee, more pronounced on the smell and only mild on the pallet. Not an everyday drinking beer but a great one for after dinner.

DuffMan (7030) - 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 itís 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)
