IMPERIAL COFFEE PORTERWith the weather changing there is no better beer to warm up with than a porter. Our porter exhibits a dark brown hue and weighs in at 8.0% ABV, which gives it its imperial status. The high sugar and alcohol content is precisely balanced with the addition of 12 pounds of fresh, roasted coffee. Hey Joe’s rich flavor is perfectly complimented by subtle coffee hints followed by a wonderful kick of caffeine and alcohol. 40 IBUs

With the exception of its dense creamy tan head, this product is roughly similar in appearance to Pepsi. Predominant taste is coffee with a chocolate aftertaste, and there is no mistaking it.

Brown body with amber highlights and a silky beige head. Aroma of fresh ground coffee beans and some dark chocolate. Coffee character lead the way as the dark malts for the porter took a backseat. Somewhat thin textured. Enjoyable, but fairly basic as far as coffee beers go.

hopdog (11168) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 4, 2006
On tap at the Manayunk Brew Pub. Poured a dark and hazy brown color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of roast, chocolate, and coffee. Tastes of chocolate, coffee, caramel, and roast. Had a caramel sweetness that was somewhat balanced out by the coffee bitter finish. I’m a sucker for coffee beers and when I read ’Imperial Coffee Porter’ I expected more of a coffee punch (that being said, this wasn’t a bad porter). Alcohol content well hidden.

This beer was off the mark from first appearance and was a rare brew I did not bother to finish. Maroon in color, not remotely resembling a porter, with a slight ring of head. Sweet roast aroma sickly mingling with an indiscernable vegetable smell and sugariness. Weird, hard to discern flavor of sweet vegetable and a bitter celery finish.

egajdzis (6004) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2006
Poured a dark, hazy, amber color with a thin, light tan head that left sparce lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel, roasted malts, coffee beans, cocoa, and a bit of smoke. Taste was sweet, caramel and chocolate, with some roasted malts, and more coffee. Unfortunately the coffee could have stood out more.
