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

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.

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, doesnít take bad but not something Iíd have again, although one of the beter Philadelphia beers

Tap at Earth Bread+Brewery. Pours a dark brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and a hint of coffee. Flavor of bitter coffee with vanilla and sweet malt. Ok coffee porter, not great, but decent. 7/4/7/4/14 (3.6/5)

Bottle from a trade with watson1977. Pours dark brown color with tan head. Aromas of roasted malts coffee and milk chocolate. Moderate roast flavor with some day old coffee. Thin to medium body with lots of carbonation. A little watery and not as much coffee as I like Iím my coffee beers. Thanks Kerry.

Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is roasted coffee beans and dark chocolate. Taste is sweet with very little bitterness on the finish. Light mouthfeel. Solid porter, was much better then i thought it would be.

Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Pinnocchios. It pours a very deep brown with a small, frothy tan head. The nose is mainly coffee with some light flint notes. The flavor is thin coffee up front with a slight sourness and a slightly metallic back end. I have to say, this isnít my favorite. Thin in body with too much carbonation. It certainly isnít as bad as the lager I just had, but itís nothing to write home about either.

Nice brown pour. With a good nose and taste of roasted malts, chocolate and nut with a good dry rich finish. GO PHILA!
