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

jgb9348 (4652) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 26, 2014
Rich deep dark brown coloured body with a thinnish, one centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt, nuts and a bunch of earth. Medium to Light-bodied; Strong coffee flavour at first with some maple syrup and a touch of toffee, all with a lot of alcohol and even more bitterness. Aftertaste shows some richness from the coffee, a good amount of roasted malt and a faint instant coffee like flavour. Overall, a decent coffee based porter that is a touch watery, but not bad at all. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle brought after a hockey game by Ed (from Philadelphia) on 15-January-2014 in Arlington, Virginia - Thanks Ed!

Bottle pours dark brown with tan head. Aroma of roasted malts and java. Flavor dominated by freshly ground coffee beans, roasted malts, semi-sweet chocolate, and light spices. Has a great earthiness. Very drinkable.

Jesterdeal (1808) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Local pride. Bottle shared over a Troma horror film. Aroma is black coffee with slight iron. Pours thin and black with a forgettable white head/film. Taste is roast coffee, some dark fruit, and a roasty metallic taste. Light mouthfeel but it goes down easy. Nice to knock these back if you like coffee beers.

12 oz bottle from a friend’s sampler case at a weekend at Hidden Valley. Overall it was thin and insipid, lacking the intensity that a coffee porter should have.

Ok porter. Not a big fan of coffee as usual. This one is pretty light and pretty simple. A little malt flavor comes through and some hop balance at the end. However, its a pretty straight foward experience - consisting of, as advertised coffee flavor.
