I think Timfoolery gave me this bottle. Pours a brown color with a plethora of carbonation. Smells of coffee and tastes of coffee. What a surprise....A very average beer. The palate is just slightly off for me.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice rich deep brown body with a thick, three centimetre tall light brown, slightly soapy head. Aroma of tons of complex notes - prunes, earth, dirt, grass, nuts, peat, roasted malt and of course - coffee. Medium-bodied; Assertive prune and pit fruit flavour at first with a good malt backbone behind and a nutty and slightly earthy finish. Aftertaste surprisingly thin with a bit of fruitiness noticeable, some lighter malt notes and a hint of grapes at the end. Overall, a good smelling and looking beer, but the flavour and especially the aftertaste simply disappoint. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from BevMo in San Bruno, California on 05-March-2012 for US$4.69 sampled a few days after returning from Hawaii, at home in Washington on 13-December-2012.

Has an interesting aroma and taste to it. It’s sweet, unlike other beers and this style. And has an almost sour, fruity aftertaste.

Dark black-brown pour. The aroma is lovely. Soft and earthy with a fruity sort of coffee aroma. A little bit of blackberry an red currant flavour. Moderate bitterness and a light palate. Nice coffee porter although it could use more body.

Had a decent java scent, not much of a head. Very light body and is kind of a watery coffee flavor.
