COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Coffee porter released for Colorado Beer Week 2011.

Draft. Deep brown body. Tan head, slowly diminishing. Aroma of roasted malt, smoke, char and molasses in the background. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture and moderate to lively carbonation. Smoky taste which is unusual for a porter. Some chocolate and coffee notes in the taste. OK.

Tap. Deep brown in color with a small khaki head. Aroma is straight up coffee and nothing much else. Taste is sweet with loads of coffee up front, some dark chocolate, and a slightly bitter finish. Medium body and slick. Too much coffee and sweetness with this beer for me.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 31, 2011
Draft at Jake Melnick’s. Pours a deep brown black, tannish head. Nose is heavily of coffee. Some malt does peek through as well. No really hop aromatics, this is all about the coffee. On taste, Hugely roasty, again, coffee roast. Not a lot else going on, though some sweetness comes through from the grains and seems to restrain the coffee eventually. Not a bad beer, just very one-note.

On draft @ Sunset Grill and Tap. Nose of a fresh bag of Italian roast coffee. The coffee dominates the flavor with a lot of roasted malts. If you are a coffee lover , you are going to enjoy this. EXCELLENT at room temperature!!. I have nothing bad to say. I hope I get a chance to try this again. A great after dinner porter.

Hand pull @ Sugar Maple in Milwaukee. The beer is a black body with a really creamy tan head. The aroma and flavors are dominated by a smooth coffee. Coffee, some chocolate malts, deep roasted malts. The hand pull added a smooth velvety mouth feel. I quite enjoyed this beer even though I’m looking for Spring to occur...

Black, with a puffy tan head. Aroma is almost all coffee, with a touch of roasted malt. Taste is coffee throughout, with a bitter coffe-like finish. Medium bodied and smooth. Basically this is all coffee.

You’d better love coffee if you’re going to drink this because at is all you are going to taste - at first, I was all about this, but as the beer warmed, some of the undesirably characteristics of the coffee became too strong, such as the acidity and deep roast, that eventually started to taste like char - there is no nuance to how the coffee is used here, so while I still sort of like it, it is ultimately a weak attempt.
