Like a big Chocolate, Espresso infused Brownie, Roebling porter packs a lot a flavor from the use of fresh Organic Ugandan Vanilla beans, Organic Peruvian Espresso/Coffee, and Natural Raw Cane Sugar! 7.8% ABV 35 IBU, 31 SRM

Brown to black pour with minimal head. Aroma of sweet chocolate and coffee. Taste is similar. Nice sweetness balanced with bitter. Need to try again.

Cocoa coffee smell and taste, Pitch black at side, Coke Pepsi color on top, rather good ohio porter.

Draft at Lucky’s - Dayton. A delicious, chocolate-based porter. I’m talking big-time chocolate. Milky, dark, rich. Served on nitro, so that helped quite a bit. Nice warm-up on a cold winter evening in Ohio. (#4950, 2/28/2013)

Nice dark pour with a large tan head. Nice array of aromas, vanilla stands out, but there are also nice roasted tones of coffee as well. The flavor is well balanced, starts out with the sweet roasty malt and bitter coffee, finishes with a touch of vanilla. Very smooth mouth feel, the relatively high alcohol content is not noticeable. Overall a very nice winter beer.

Draft pour opaque black with brown hues. Nose with bready sweetness. Initial taste almost cream soda, some milk chocolate, and lots of vanilla. Very creamy mouthfeel for this tap pour.

Tap at Cincy Beerfest. Earthy chocolate, dark fruit, and roasty malt aroma. Deep mahogany with a small beige head. Sweet chocolate - a little like Nestle Quick - and light toasty malt flavor. LIght body, soft carbonation.

BVery (5944) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Bottle from Lizardville Rocky River. Dark brown pour but it doesn’t look terribly dense. Small cream head. Vanilla and sugar on the nose. Cocoa powder, sugar, and more vanilla on taste. Palate might be a touch thin, but not bad. Decent brew.

Bottle. Pours opaque black with a small tan head and decent lacing. Aroma is coffee, dark roasted malts, and grain. Flavor is overtly chocolate with notes of vanilla and tobacco and a light astringence that grows with drinking. Medium sweet, lightly bitter. I started out liking this one, ended up dumping the last third or so, but for some reason still want to rate it fairly well.

12 ounce bottle. Thanks JSquire! Pours a very dark brown with a nice tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. Taste is burnt coffee, dark chocolate, dark fruit, vanilla, and roasted malt. Just a bit off. Pretty good.

12oz bottle scooped up in Columbus..so clearly no longer on draft only. Pours a deep brown-black, with a big respectable beige head. Amped up coffee and vanilla tones, this is sort of like a more drinkable Southern Tier offering. Big, but not overbearing, retains some nice porter qualities. Sweet, but enough balance in depth in all the adjuncts to make it work. Coffee Stout fans should be all over this. Well done.
