COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Joe is not your average beer. This ale is brewed with locally-roasted, fair trade coffee, Dark Munich and chocolate malts which combine to create a well-balanced, flavorful Porter with a fresh roasted coffee aroma. Good from the first drop. We use 2.5 pounds of coffee in each barrel of this robust porter. Available in both bottles and kegs for a limited time each fall and winter. 5% ALC/VOL

FROTHINGSLOSH (5523) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2009
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a large creamy dark tan head. The aroma was dry, bitter and roasty coffee. The flavor was dry, roasty, toasty and bitter with fairly strong coffee and a touch of cream. The finish was medium length dry and bitter. A bit thin in body but smooth. Solid.

Outstanding quality Porter with some very nice and distinct (which was expected) coffee flavors. Good looking pint of beer which will be a perfect comanion for those cool winter nights.

Coffee bean body topped with a small cream head. Deep roast barley fills the nose. Easy roast barley flavor with coffee ground finish. Smooth and simple. Slight burnt black patent character.

12oz bottle. Pours a deep coffee brown with a small beige head. Nice nose of fresh coffee and some faint notes of cocoa. Flavor was again mostly coffee with some additional espresso and a bittersweet chocolate finish. A pretty tasty coffee porter, no off flavors.

Pours extremely dark ruby, tan head that fades quickly. Aroma of caramel, chocolate bread and some coffee. Decent sweet roasted nut flavor with a creamy mocha underneath. Dry coffee finish. Little bit of undesirable coffee bitterness.

I hope this makes a comeback! So few porters are being made theses days. This was nice and roasty without being astringent. Coffee nose and subtle flavour. Hops were balanced as not to distract from the joe. Contains caffeine, so donít drink too many at night.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2009
Tap at Misconduct Tavern. Deep brown beer with a very creamy tan head. Aroma is loaded with coffee and a light minerally maltiness on the back. Nice earthy component with lots of fresh brewed coffee aroma. There is a bit of light cocoa and roast on the back of the beer as well. The beer is lightly swet with a nice soft coffeeish flavour. Itís missing a bit of mid-palate complexity, but itís still pretty tasty.

Brewed in the USA........ On tap at Capones !! Pours black in color with a thin tan head. Aroma of coffee, dark malts and mild hops. Taste has a nice roasted coffee flavor . The mouthfeel is a bit on the thin side, but still very enjoyable to drink.
