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..

Notes from Reading Tap Room, Oct 26, 2013. Nice coffee flavor but this was just way too thin. Good coffee porters start as good porters and I doubt I would have rated this porter very highly without the coffee. Pass.

Sort of like day old coffee, kinda thin and watery with just a hint of sweetness. Ok I guess.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
