COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Please enjoy this convenient distraction from your daily life. We sure enjoyed taking a break from our everyday "grind" one afternoon at the brewery to meet a very passionate local coffee roaster who was interested in a possible collaboration. This liquid is our story.

Poured from a tap, the aroma is part vanilla and part Kahlua. Coffee is not present throughout and I didn’t know it was supposed to be there until I read the label online. Sweet and more than a little syrupy while being 10W-40 thick. Nonetheless, very tasty.

emusche (191) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 11, 2016
Pours black with very thin, quickly dissipating head; lacing is non-existent. Notes of vanilla and coffee in the nose, but balanced and not leaning too far towards either aroma. The bourbon vanilla bean comes through in the flavor, and cuts the coffee nicely. This is pretty well-balanced. But the mouthfeel is thin, and the lack of carbonation makes it too flat. This is fine, but could have been much better.

750 ml. bottle. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of coffee, malt, chocolate, and vanilla. Taste is roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and some dark fruit. Well made coffee forward Imperial Porter.

JoePeesie (924) - Long Lake, Illinois, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Pours a jet black with a touch of brown head. Nice full body, tastes an smell of a nicely balance base Porter with a punch of coffee and hit of vanilla. Very nice breakfast beer!

deyholla (9993) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 26, 2015
Bottle. Pours black with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of coffee with a bit of green pepper backed by bitter dark grains and roasted malts. Flavor has coffee and some sweet dark grains with a bit of green pepper and a bit thin up front.

Mindwarp (167) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 18, 2015
Pours a typical porter, stout black with a small tan head. Aroma is of roasted malts, and coffee in the back. Taste is coffee first followed up by vanilla. I was drinking this on tap a few months ago and thought it was better than what I’m getting out of the bottle, more balanced. Overall a good porter but not a great porter.
