COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic dry porter with coffee, toffee and roasty notes in both the aroma and flavor. Black in color with a refreshingly dry finish. Reminiscent of the porters of old before the days of stouts.

Bottle courtesy of Ibrew2or3. Pours a dark cola brown to black with white head. Aroma is light roast, bittersweet chocolate, coffee, light brown sugar and molasses. Flavor is sweet and malty with notes of roast, chocolate, nutmeg, brown sugar, some hints of toffee. Medium body with a malty chocolate finish. Probably the best beer I have sampled from OBC.

douglas88 (6053) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 3, 2009
12 oz bottle thanks to ibrew2or3. Pours a murky brown color with only a small bubble of head. The aroma is nice; smoke, roasted malts and chocolate. The flavor is similar; chalky, sweet chocolates, roasted malts, light bitter chocolate, milky. Decent, but lacking a good body.

Tap FBGF. Pours black with off white head. Aroma of roasted coffee malts. Taste of roasted malts, possibly some faint notes of smoke and chocolate. Light hops with a nice sublte bitter finish. Some dark fruits can also be felt in the mix. Overall the beer is light, and drinkable.

Sample @ brewery taproom. Opaque black-brown. Great smokey aroma is super toasty and very rich. Low carbonation. A little burnt in the flavors but that adds some dryness. A nice sessionable tipple.

12 oz from GodofThunder pours deep brown with a creamy tan head that hangs around for quite a while. Big time roasted coffee aroma and some cream too. Very thin body and not a lot going on. Some burnt coffee at the end and a little bit of sweetness. Very dry and that feeling lingers. Coffee porter gave me high hopes, but maybe I will try again in when in Florida this summer.

On tap at WDW. Poured medium-deep brown with a short cap of off-white head. The aroma was sweet and chocolatey with dry-roast to it and accents of peaty smoke.. just what I needed. The flavor didn’t come together as well.. dry-roasted black malts gave some chocolate character at the core, but not a whole lot.. faint smoke worked in its favor, as did light coffee bitterness, but both could have been more prevalent.. rather bland with black malts on the finish. Medium-bodied and dry on the palate with lower carbonation.. smelled better than it tasted.
