Bottle thanks to my brother. Perfectly black body with a slightly orange tan head. The nose is coffee and pancakes. There is also some rich caramel. There is sweetened coffee and molasses in the taste. This finishes with a little ashtray and peaches. The finish even has a slight bell pepper note. Nice.

bartzluke (390) - Oklahoma, USA - AUG 9, 2015
12 oz pour from chilled bomber into tulip glass. Black as night, totally opaque, slight evident carbonation, slight brown head. Nose is coffee, a bit sour, a bit sweet, and malty. Body is full and sharp. Taste is sour coffee, reminiscent of cold brew. Roasty with some burnt notes as well. A hint of dark chocolate back there too. Not a bad coffee porter.

The aroma is definitely more enticing than the taste. Kind of a bitter aftertaste on the palate. Got the beer at Grocery Outlet and it said it was brewed in October 2013. Nice buzz with a 9.2 Alc.

Had a long time ago and updating the app. But I wrote the coffee was strong and good but it was a bit too bitter at the end for a higher rating. Had in bottle.

Bitter chocolate, coffee, abundant roast, malts, hops, slight fruit notes. Smell is more enticing than the taste. Good balance. Can’t emphasize the roast enough.

Nice little showing from a brewery I don’t get around to often enough. Quite solid coffee porter, Imperial style, with a nice little hop bite to boot. Respectable showing. Serving size: 22oz bombs Away.

bigda83 (513) - Jamestown, New York, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Possible infected bottle? Pours a nice deep brown with a purple tint and a small khaki foamy heady. Aroma was weakly of coffee and an odd sweet smell. Taste was rotten fruit and vinegar. No coffee at all and undrinkable. Wasn’t impressed, but not sure if the bottle was bad or if I just didn’t care for it.

Dark brown, almost black pour with large beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and a hint of chocolate. Taste of roasted malts, coffee, cocoa, hint of caramel. Medium bodied, perfect carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, slightly bitter finish. Very good beer!
