Bottle. Big, big, big aroma of coffee (grounds). Dark brown/pitch pour with an acidic light tan head. Watery thin body, very dry and coffee-inflected. Lightly metallic taste, very weak porter. Lightly sour and a touch of staleness. Base coffee needs improvement before Iíll jump onboard.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a large creamy dark tan head. The aroma was dry, bitter and roasty coffee. The flavor was dry, roasty, toasty and bitter with fairly strong coffee and a touch of cream. The finish was medium length dry and bitter. A bit thin in body but smooth. Solid.

12oz bottle. Pours a deep coffee brown with a small beige head. Nice nose of fresh coffee and some faint notes of cocoa. Flavor was again mostly coffee with some additional espresso and a bittersweet chocolate finish. A pretty tasty coffee porter, no off flavors.

I hope this makes a comeback! So few porters are being made theses days.
This was nice and roasty without being astringent. Coffee nose and subtle flavour. Hops were balanced as not to distract from the joe. Contains caffeine, so donít drink too many at night.
