Patrickctenchi (3646) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Nearly black with a small, dark tan head. Aroma is dark roast, cocoa, espresso.... Flavour is a nice coffee/chocolate blend. A slightly ashy, overcooked bitter. Good carbonation, a bit light, but rather nice.

Bottle. Coffee and chocolate malt aroma. Dark brown with small head. Sweet chocolate malt and mildly bitter coffee flavor. Medium body. Not bad.

AirForceHops (3174) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 13, 2013
12 oz. bottle courtesy of queenholly. Dark brown pour/ bordering on black in color. Nose is espresso beans and roasted barley. The mouthfeel is on the flat side but that doesn’t matter since the flavor is nice. Strong espresso effect with light traces of chocolate, caramel, and some coffee bitterness in the finish. On the lighter side of medium in body. Bet this rocks on draft, any coffee brew lover should try this.

12 ounce while dining at Husk. Espresso/coffee. Roast. Chocolate. Not a very thick or heavy body, but bitterness shines. Decent.

Fratto (2616) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2013
Bottle from my backyard fridge. Maybe Cavie. Probably my tuba compadre (drowland). Sample's 100th, finally. Dark pour with a small brown head. Aroma is dark chocolate, coffee, an maybe some dirt. Taste is a little dirt, coffee, and some unfortunate burn. Taste doesn't match the aroma, but an alright finish.

Cavie (3795) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2013
Bottle courtesy Fratto. Pours a cloudy maroon color with a light beige head. Aroma is lovely. Espresso beans, chocolate notes, heavily roasted, freshly roasted coffee ground. Flavor is also roasted coffee, bitter notes, chocolate malts. Aroma is better than the flavor. Still very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Fratto. Smells FANTASTIC. Pours very dark with a tan head. Smells of coffee and malts. Very strong coffee flavor. Fantastic beer. Love it.

Chudwick (2144) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - JUN 19, 2013
12oz bottle - pours brown with khaki with good lacing. Nose is coffee and milk chocolate. Flavor adds roast, cereal and herbal hops. Mildly sweet with coffee roast bitterness. Somewhat flat.

Braudog (5741) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle. Typical American porter pour ... dark brownish, black, thin head. Aroma straight from the office coffee pot. Drinks with a stark, java-based bitterness, unusually delicious. Good example of a coffee-based dark beer. Love it. (#5017, 5/10/2013)

Aggie80 (785) - Michigan, USA - APR 12, 2013
Strong coffee/chocolate flavors in a solid brew. This was great after a day touring Charleston and the environs. Nice head and good lacing, the undertones are strong and cut through just about anything. Not for the faint at heart.
