"The 2nd of 2 absolutely deeelicious coffee imperial porters from port on as many days. Tasted and smelled like the same coffee, wonderfully fresh, big malty smooth roasted flavor and aroma with a little chocolate in there for good measure."

January 6th, 2012 - Pizza Port’s vinous Coffee Monster may be meant to be an ode to the all powerful coffee bean, but the flavor goes way beyond the roasted botanical. This deep, soil red’s aroma is powerful and rich, sweet and smooth, and hits the nose with a red wine vinegar sourness that suggests some effort was made to pin coffee bitterness with red wine acidity. The flavor is husky, bold, and savory. A long aftertaste produces a commanding hickory and raspberry mocha flavor, and adds a pine stickiness to the aftertaste without adding the happiness I anticipate when pine flavors are abundant. Motes of coffee flavors float around, but there’s a well researched balance that prevents this beer from becoming a monomaniacal beer-coffee hybrid monster.

Mortlach (970) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 31, 2012
28/12/2012 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Bevuta al Pizza Port Tap Takeover. Nera, densa, impenetrabile, schiuma beige, abbondante e molto persistente. Naso meraviglioso, cafettoso al 100%, ma non stucchevole, di grande finezza! In bocca mostra un analogo equilibrio, sbalorditivo, sembra la versione riveduta e corretta della Mout & Mocca. Corpo medio-pieno, carbonazione corretta. Che gran birra!

Pours dark and black with a huge tan head. As the name implies this is just a big coffee smelling beast. Very light hints of grass and chocolate intermingle but it smells like coffee and not bear. Amazing. Taste is sweet first, bitter and then sweet again. The mouthfeel is crisp and clean, medium to heavy body and a long finish. Best coffee stout I’ve had in a long time.

markwise (4501) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 10, 2012
On draft for GABF 2012. Pours a midnight obsidian color with a tan head. Nose is roasted malt, roasted coffee, cafe con leche, and some earth. Flavor is roasted coffee, earth, some chocolate, and big cafe con leche. Big and not boozy at all, crazy stout with a ton of coffee. I wonder if they ever considered doing a Kopi version of this.

Marsiblursi (3021) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2012
(Draught) Pours black with a pale brown head. The aroma holds coffee – gravel, green bell pepper, jalapeńo oil, parsley and asphalt. Undertones of fruity, grapefruity, earthy and herbal hops alongside roasted malt, dark chocolate and roasted nuts. Aromatic and fat on the nose. The flavor is light to medium sweet, medium bitter and tiny acidic with clear coffee notes as well as chocolate, caramel, citric/herbal hops, nuts and dark caramel. The mouthfeel is round, smooth, light velvety with a light carbonation. Coffee, light liquorice, dark syrup and hops on the finish. Near full bodied.

Dogbrick (8251) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Sample at GABF 10/13/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking. Opaque brown-black pour with a medium tan head and top ring of lacing. Aroma of roasted coffee and malt. Medium to full body with a nice black coffee character and notes of roasty malt and hops. The finish is moderately bitter with an espresso aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
