COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This coffee porter is brewed with chocolate and dark chocolate malts to give a robust backbone for the lactose (milk sugar) to build on and is finished with Mazarro’s coffee to create a beer with a silky mouthfeel, rich flavor, and the satisfying taste of coffee. 4.9% ABV

This is a great beer! Fairly dark pint pour with full finger off white head. Nose is fairly sharp, with good roasted malts and healthy coffee notes present and light vanilla. Flavor follows without being too over powering. Roasted malts throughout and again, more coffee. Delicious coffee! Lighter body and quite drinkable.

Crowler 1L. Pours very dark brown with low beige head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is of cold coffee, roasted malt, vegetal stuff. Taste is of vegetal stuff, roasted malt, slight bitterness, ashes, faint garbage, sugar. Palate: Medium body. Soft carbonation. Overall: Not too good. Weird malt/sugars, and yeast aint’ 100% on. Or maybe it’s just the crowler?

From a <strike>750ml</strike> 1L "crowler", nice novelty item! Pours a dark brown with a medium offwhite head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of cold coffee, light green peppers, roast and ash but not quite "ash-y". As weird as it may sound I felt like it was cohesive and didn’t turn me off. Taste is lightly sweet, offers more intense coffee, some peppers and chocolate/moka. Body is medium, carbonation as well and mouthfeel somewhat smooth. Overall a good sweet stout, not too sweet and sessionnable. Of course I’d cut down on the coffee a little but it was still enjoyable and well made to me.

Crowler (1 L). Thanks to Mike for this one! Black with a medium creamy beige head and good lacing. Aroma is of coffee, sweetness notes, green peppers, ashes and almonds. Taste is moderately sweet with coffee, green peppers, ashes and green peppers. Medium body. Moderately carbonation. Somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Weird green pepper presence. Decent.

Crowler. My first Crowler. Creamy, sweet and smooth with a little bit of roastiness and a slight bitterness. Big tan head. Pretty nice and sessionable dark beer. Give this to anyone drinking a Guinness and ask them what they prefer.

TheAlum (5672) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Crowler shared at 4th of July Party (Lyons, IL). Pours a darker brownish hue, some good light still gets through with glowing brown and reddish edges. Frothy tannish head atop sticks around well enough and laces as a decent ring. Aromas are a bit of cocoa, sweet lactose and milk sugars, gentle waft of cream and vanilla meet some cheaper chocolate, caramel and toffee, biscuit. Touch sweeter and lighter, the roast element is subtle overall. Initial is medium bodied, perhaps a bit thinner with firmer carmelized and toffee elements, lactose sweetness and a bit of creaminess. Some gentle toastiness, subtle roast. A bit thin and sweet, the roast element really never gets going for me. Touches of gentle sweet coffee, caramel and biscuit. Some earthiness, lingering milk sugar sweetness as we finish. Ok, a bit underbodied and summery but seems a bit underdone overall.

Dark brown with tan head. Aroma is more coffee than chocolate. Taste follows nose. Very nice and mellow.

This poured a darker brown with a beige head. Aroma was pretty much all coffee and light caramel. Flavor was thin fresh coffee grounds. Pretty solid for low abv stout.

Wow! Pretty outstanding coffee beer. Nice hefty coffee aroma with a smooth warm coffee flavor. Might be the best coffee beer I've had.

Had on draft. Poured clear dark brown with a nice light head. Aroma has slight notes of chocolate. Not too sweet as the name might say but coffee has nice bitter tones to it.
