Bottle:   Black, thin sudsy tannish head, sticky lacing.   Assertive coffee nose, soft roasted malts.   Coffee and roasted malts on the tongue, moderate sweetness.   A touch of dark chocolate.   Hard to believe this is 9%.   Seems very well hidden.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes with a sweetened coffee, heavy with cream and sugar, with minor roasted malts.   Pretty simple, but clean and enjoyable.   Only wished it were a little more chewy.

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!

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 don’t 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 (7037) - 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.
