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

This was excellent as a cask gravity pour. Soft carbonation, lots of interplay and although not in the description, the batch I had seemed smoky and rich with strong coffee. Excellent.

Clear, near black in color, with a thin tan head. Strong coffee, light chocolate aroma. A little bit of sweetness on the tongue but mostly bitter. Thin palate, high carbonation, dry finish.

Better than expected. Pours a coffee black to brown with a touch of tan head. Nose and taste are fairy coffee heavy. Not a beer I would seek out, but certainly one I would drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerdedone (2573) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. Flavor was roasted coffee beans, chocolate and roasted malts with a thin body and had a fairly dry and watery finish.

boxofrane (2050) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2012
Bottle. Pours black with a small white head. Smell is an overload of coffee.. which I love. The taste is mostly coffee with some minor chocolate notes. This is a style that I love and this is a very solid offering.

Bottle from craft beer outlet. Nice aroma and flavor of roasted malts and coffee. A little thin though, but good.

Nate (3636) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2011
On tap at Burgatory. Nice coffee aroma, molasses and malted barley. Light hops and a bit of bitter chocolate. Dark brown black clear with thin head. Medium carbonation with medium watery body. Starts medium malty with bitter roasted notes, light coffee and bittersweet chocolate. Bitter dry finish with nutty astringent after.

arkurzynski (1468) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Dark brown. Way over-carbonated with an over-abundance of light tan, foamy head. Aroma is a not overly appealing combo of super green coffee, soot, ash, burnt caramel, super grassy/vegetal hops, and plastic. Ash and coffee flavor, brief sweet caramel and toffee in the middle, and finishes with wet grass and more ash. Carbonic acidity from over-carbonation plus coffee acidity equals not good. Just a mess of a beer.

jrallen34 (3478) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2011
bottle... light black body, nice color, not much of a head though... the aroma is very solid, really nice fresh ground coffee beans, rounded off nicely with a light coffee finish... the taste is a bit boring and thin, the coffee comes off a bit old and generic, doesn’t take bad but not something I’d have again, although one of the beter Philadelphia beers
