3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into an English pint glass. Color is dark brown with a thin beige head. Aroma is sweet malt, coffee, and chocolate with some light roastiness - smells like a mocha. Flavor is pretty run of the mill porter with roasted malts, and coffee notes. There is a nice roasted / bittersweet finish from the coffee. Mouthfeel is thin. This is a decent porter, but I would expect bigger, bolder flavors from a coffee porter. Not bad by any means, just not outstanding.

Pours black with a medium a medium tan head. Aroma has nice light coffee notes...some mildly sweet/roasty malt. Flavor has good coffee and some roasty/burnt notes...bit one dimensional but not bad. Mouthfeel is just a bit thin but lively and the finish is roasty and hints @ coffee.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from the bomber. Aroma is pure coffee. Nothing special, maybe Folgers? Flavor is similar. Thin head no lacing. Palate is smooth, low carbonarion. Overall this is good, but I would enjoy more complexity, and maybe better coffee flavor.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650 ml bottle from Bevmo. Pours an opaque black color with a small tan head that slowly recedes to a film. The aroma is strong with coffee, mocha and coffee grounds. The flavor is rather pleasant coffee, grounds, some acidic/sour dark fruits and a touch or mocha. The body is light and slick with prickly carbonation. Finishes medium in duration with lingering biter coffee grounds. Overall: My initial reaction to this was quite positive, but as I worked my way through the bomber I liked this less and less.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle. Rating #35. Very dark pour, not quite black, dark brown with a little black in there. Big coffee aroma with a little underlying vanilla sweetness. Big roasty coffee flavor up front, bordering on smoky and more vanilla and a little coconut as well. Interesting beer. (1984)

Pours black with off-white head. Very coffee on the nose. Very VERY cofee on the palate--like chomping on coffee beans. I love coffee, but itís a little too much, actually.

3.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Strangely fruity, raw, pulpy, sweet, not bitter like I would have hoped for. The smell of it is spectacular, and nothing like the flavor.
