Nice looking black beer with a thin but long lasting chocolate head. The aroma is of mild coffee, with chocolate, roasted and toasted malts. The taste is balanced, and the coffee is subtle. However, it leaves something to be desired...I just don’t know what..

Thanks to daknole. Bottle pours brown with a khaki head. Aroma smells like a bag of green coffee and black olives, with a touch of ash. Flavor shows the same with additional hints of chocolate, and light roast.

Dark brown, tons of fluffy tan head. Aroma is plastic and coffee. Flavor is roasty, coffee, and on its way to getting sour. Odd but good.

Gift from Armed. Slowly working my way through the Philly roster. This beer was decent - although I found the aroma to be yeasty and a bit funky. Taste is smooth and creamy like a lightly sweetened cup of coffee cut with cream. Lingers nicely on the palate with a slight coffee bitterness but not too much.

Coffee and chocolate on the aroma. Dark murky brown in color with no head. the chocolate and coffee continue in the taste...a bit thin.

Probably one of the best coffee porters I’ve tried: Coffee and hops provide two great types of bitter with some malt underlying to balance out the profile. Just enough coffee taste (and the right kind too, not the cheap coffee taste in others). Wonderful and one of the best of its kind.

Bottle. Pours black with off white head. Nose and taste of fresh brewed coffee, vanilla and roasted malts. Thinnish mouth feel.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark mahogany/brown with a very thin head and no lacing. I’ll have to deduct some points for that. Smells like an iced coffee, mildly sweet with burnt roastiness, chocolate bits and even vanilla beans. Quite a pleasant aroma. Flavoring is straight forward with roasted coffee, more along the lines of a breakfast blend then a bold dark bitter one. Chocolate malts round it out with a sweet finish. The mouth feel is a bit too light, but made for easy drinking. I am a coffee addict, so naturally I love coffee flavored beers. I do however prefer black extra bold blends. Joe Coffee Porter is a well made brew, but just a run of the mill porter.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body with a one finger fizzy light brown head. The nose is nice dark roast coffee with some roasty malt, chocolate, and a nice citrusy note that seems like it comes from the coffee more than hops. The flavor showcases that nice citrusy coffee really well with some chocolate malt and some light bitterness on the finish. Light to medium bodied, a touch watery in texture with soft fizzy carbonation. Overall, a little too thin, but it is very easy drinking, I could throw down a few of these in a session.

Did not like this one. Everything you’d expect from the name, dark malts, coffee, chocolate, but it was overpoweringly bitter in a way that I found unpleasant. If you frequently drink black coffee, and want to taste the same thing in your beer, then this is for you, but it’s not for me.
