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.

Mudwhomper (52) - Madison, USA - APR 3, 2014
Aroma is dark fruits and a bit of booze. Very thin light head with minimal lacing. Pours a very dark brown. Not the flavor bomb I expected given its an imperial porter with coffee and vanilla, but damn is this nice. Definitely serve this at cellar temp, its WAY better as it warms from the fridge. Their claim of this beer being "masterfully blended" is not a false one. Light vanilla flavors give way to subtle coffee notes. Great balance; no flavor is overpowering. There is a solid imperial porter background but again, not pronounced. While I typically like in your face beers, this one still impresses me. Mouthfeel is thin, easy to drink with very little carbonation. Overall a great beer, in my opinion.

From a bottle. Dark thin pour with a small amount of carbonation. Almost no head. Sweet coffee aroma. Slightly flat, but tastes pretty good. Deep smooth chocolate taste with a big coffee flavor. Definitely an interesting type of coffe. Would love to try it on tap.

nuplastikk (4698) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Snifter, tap at Oso. Really nice chocolate coffee aroma. Sweet coffee chocolate vanilla flavors. Sweet, but not overbearing in the body, still has some nice oily Porter tones. The coffee is quite pronounced. Quality offering. A touch sweetish, extract. Enjoyable.

Dogbrick (8658) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Pours a dark brown color with a medium tan head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Roast malt, coffee and dark chocolate in the nose. Medium to full-bodied with flavors of roasted coffee, chocolate malt and vanilla. The finish is sweet with a vanilla mocha aftertaste. Above average overall.

Bottle. Dark pour with off white head. Smells like a porter with a lot of coffee. A little thin with a lot of coffee flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BBB63 (6154) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 5, 2014
The thin mouth feel is excusable considering it is a coffee imbued porter but the fakeness of the java character and the very noticeable medicinal tones are not. It also confirms my overall dislike for vanilla imbued beers as well.

Bacterial (1710) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle picked up in Madison last weekend. Dark brown pour, certainly on the thinner side. Nice tan head. Really awesome nose on this: Roasted malt, chocolate and coffee with a big vanilla nose. Light on the mouthfeel with coffee notes and vanilla - slight astringency on the backend.

Bomber thanks to respertftw. Dark garnet with a small head. Dark chocolate and espresso aromas. Just great.

brokensail (11529) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle @ home. Thanks, Jake. Black pour with a finger of so of tan foam. Decent coffee aroma to this. Some dark chocolate, licorice, and raisin. Kind of ashy, though, particularly as it warms. Flavor has some mild toffee sweetness, but a lot of bitter roast, ash, and coffee grounds. Kind of some green apple and bell pepper, too.

Brown pour, tan head. Nose is coffee, sort of funky, seems like it could be infected. Taste is coffee, vanilla beans, chocolate. Medium mouthfeel.
