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

Sikash (240) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 3, 2012
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.

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2012
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.

keanex (1629) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - MAR 31, 2012
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.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2012 Bottle. Aroma of heavy malts of coffee and chocolate. Very bitter coffee taste. Frothy and heavy carbonation. Tastes like a milkshake.

Jayb0 (1097) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - FEB 1, 2012
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.

jmm635 (946) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2012
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.

JoePeesie (919) - Long Lake, Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2012
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 (2981) - 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 (2446) - 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.
