Black with a dark tan head. Aroma is strong black coffee. Flavor is roasted coffee malt with a touch of sweetness. A tad bitter in the finish, but not unpleasantly so.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Pours a medium thick, poorly retained beige head with some lacing, over an apparently clear dark brown black (SRM 35) body.....nose is coffee, light chocolate, minimal hops, no esters.....taste is moderately sweet lactose type tones with coffee, cocoa, chocolate hints, finishing with a moderate burnt coffee bitterness and light hops......mouth feel medium, slightly sticky, with a clean light acid finish. The coffee adjunct is a bit too dominant for the malt and hop backbones. If coffee tasting beers are your thing it is wonderful, if not, well. BJCP 7/3/13/4/7

Sampled at the brewery. This is a great coffee porter. The coffee is clean and not peppery. Chocolate, creamy, slight caramel. We had to order two, my wife wouldn’t share.

Had this beer very recently on tap at Merchants in Lawrence, so its a bit of a surprise that this was a 2011 beer. Very nice, though. Not much head, but a deep, rich coffee character.

Tap at Meddlesome Moth, Dallas Tx, a thin coffee porter which has loads of coffee nose, minimal head, and surprisingly watery body, almost like there was too much coffee, then again no vegetals that I found which make it quite tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep brown/black color with tan lacing and head. Fairly bold aroma of coffee and wood (tree bark). Big body, certainly for a porter, but not so big that stout aspects come through. Lots of coffee on the palate, with one pint being plenty for the evening.

Tap at Rattle, pours blackish brown with one finger head. Nose of roasted coffe beans. Tastes of coffe grinds, cola, malt, and I’m getting chili peppers and bacon. Would almost guessed it was a smoked beer. Anyways tasty.

Black beer. No head. Strong coffee bean aroma. Strong flavor of java. Thin consistency but not watery. Some bitterness. Kind of a boring beer but coffee flavored so how could it suck? Because I dont drink coffee.
