Ehhh. Pours reddish brown. Aroma is mostly bitter chocolate with some coffee. Rather thin in mouth with some coffee notes. Finishes dry / tart bitters.

Bottle at Tattooed Mom. Dark copper black but not opaque. Fizzy white head that disappears quickly. Decent strong coffee flavor with a juicy malt backbone. Raisins. Plums. Burnt toast. Orange peels. Tootsie Rolls. More interesting coffee beer than most.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Oak Tree, 12/6/12
Aroma: The nose has lots of roasted coffee, with some chocolate malts, and a little earth
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a small beige head that leaves scattered lace
Flavor: The taste is much the same as the nose, it is mostly roasted coffee, with a lightly bitter finish
Palate: Medium bodied, though a touch watery, with average-plus carbonation, and a light dry finish
This is not a bad beer at all. The coffee presence works pretty well, and the beer itself works pretty well overall. It’s nothing stellar, but I found it quite drinkable, and fairly well made.

Pours a nice dark color into a tullip glas from a 12 ounce bottle. Aroma is dry of coffee, roasted malt, hops. Flavor is initially bitter with a dry flavor and some roasted malt, mildly creamy with the tingle of carbonation. Body is medium overall no sour taste at all. Carbonation may be above average. Overall a solid beer.

12oz bottle pours a watery, but mostly opaque black with one ring of beige head. Nose of mild coffee, brown sugar, malt, a little brown bread. Flavor is the same, Little nutty, coffee, brown sugar, malt, bread. Medium bodied, dry finish. Neither the base beer nor the coffee are exceptional, but this is a decent little coffee porter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep brown in color, similar to that of coffee.
A hard pour only produced a thin, small head.
The head was tan in color and faded away rather quickly leaving behind little to no lacing.
The aroma was, of course, that of black coffee and sutle roasted malts.
Taste is of black coffee and roasted malts. Leans more to the coffee then malts.
Mouthfeel was thin with some bitter dryness towards the end. The body was smooth.
A good beer with good flavor. Body seems a bit thin for a porter.

Poured into an English pint glass from a 12 ounce bottle undated.
A: Very dark opaque brown with a towering foamy, rocky, tan head that overflowed from my glass despite a mild pour.
S: Faint coffee and a slightly sweet faint lactose.
T: Coffee through and through, slight sweetness coming through but mostly rather dry.
M: Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation.
O: Wouldn’t buy this again, but it’s true to it’s name. Cheap enough to be worth trying.

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.
