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

chinchill (1602) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 8, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. A: a very durable creamy tan head leaves some sticky lacing. Clear but nearly opaque dark brown. Aroma: mix of medium- and dark-malts with light-roasted coffee. Flavor: Mix of medium- and dark-malts with light-roasted coffee. Excellent balance between the coffee an the malts. Faint hop presence. Feel: near medium body with medium soft carbonation. O: well-crafted coffee porter.

Not one for coffee beers, but appreciate the category. Deep mahogany in color with intense coffee and chocolate malt notes. Body a bit watery, but great coffee finish and aromas.

Great coffee aroma and flavor. Thin mouth feel but delicious all the same. Head retention was okay. Rep at Wholefoods gave great information and I even bought two bottles to share. They were well received by some out of town guests who returned to Wholefoods to get a couple bottle for themselves.

Definitely got the smell of coffee and chocolate right off the bat. It poured a thick head which dissipated quickly. The body was light and water, for a coffee beer I expected a thicker body with more taste. Decent but I wouldn’t try it again.

patrick767 (3524) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 2, 2014
tap at the brewpub, fall 2013 - Pours dark brown with a small, lingering, light tan head. It smells of roast coffee and chocolate. The flavor is sweet with more chocolate and coffee and a medium to full body. Quite good.

yackery (154) - California, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Appearance is small, dissolving, brown sandy head with fast brown lacing over a mahogany barely translucent body. Aroma is coffee and chocolate coca cola. Taste is mildly sweet. Palate is soft with some cream. Finish is coffee/dark chocolate bitter. Classy.

Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Sample at Kurtkeller 005: Coffee-tastic 01 on 02/08/2014. Dark brown pour with a medium thin beige head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of coffee and butterscotch. Light to medium body with flavors of roast malt, caramel and mild coffee. The finish is sweet with a malt and mild coffee aftertaste. Decent overall.

Barreras (931) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Pours a deep brown color with a chocolate coffee aroma. Taste is a bit sweet for such a dark colored beer. A slight dirty water taste with a metallic aftertaste. A bit watery and light for a porter.

High quality dark beer. Deep brown colour, some head. Nice flavour of coffee, maybe some chocolate too.

lehueve (9) - Calexico, Alabama, USA - NOV 3, 2013 does not count
A - Pretty dark almost black with a 3 finger head. S - Coffee as expected, chocolate, earth T - Coffee follows the aroma, roasty coffee, dark bitter chocolate, some oats too. M - The body is medium to light but also creamy. The finish is dry O - A nice coffee porter but it could use more flavors. The aroma is the best part but then the taste and mouthfeel fall short.
