Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours ruby brown with a transient light tan head. Strong, strong coffee aroma. There’s so much coffee in it that it suggests chewy bitter. Amps down a bit with time. Simple and tasty. Extreme beer.

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.

Bomber. Poured deep brown with a dense, creamy tan head. The aroma picked up sweet vanilla and hazelnuts over nutty coffee.. struck me as having a little too much creamer, but it was still quite enjoyable. The flavor found more of the tasty coffee and less of the additives.. light-moderate roast to it.. some tacky, near burnt molasses down there too.. dry roast stuck on the edges.. coffee sourness and more creamer-inspired sweetness on the quick finish. Medium-bodied and dry on the palate.. more sour as it warmed up.. this was an entirely solid, yet unspectacular brew. I’d gladly have another.
