Another unimpressive porter from Six Rivers. This was the only beer that I gave a 5 for appearance though as I thought it looked exactly like it should in the glass. Good head and some lacing left on the glass. Very watery palette and not a ton of the coffee or chocolate flavor I was waiting for.

22oz bottle - 2 for 2 with beers from Six Rivers. This beer has a HUGE aroma of coffee and chocolate, like a decadent dessert of some kind. The roastyness of the aroma borders on being ashy, but not quite there. Any more so, and the score would go from a 9 down to about 3 or 4. Flavor is more coffee and a powdery chocolate bitterness that reminds me of Hershey’s baking powder. The residual sweetness is kept on the low-medium side, so the bitterness of the malts really shows. Really nice.

Pours a very dork brown, almost black with a khaki head. Coffee, chocolate, roasted malt and caramel aroma. Coffee, toffee, caramel, toast, chocolate and roasted malt flavors. Medium full body and moderate carbonation. Coffee and toffee finish.

"never had Moonstone, the base beer, but i LOVE me some Kona Coffee and like Pipeline from Kona, this beer puts the coffee to good use. nice balance in the flavor and aroma between roasted malt, bitterness, and a touch of sweet and spicy from the coffee. served at 50 degrees, especially enjoyable closer to 60. At $4 less than the Ras Lambic, it’s a better beer."

Bottle courtesy of BeerandBlues2, thank you sir! Deep maroon color, small tan head. Aroma of coffee grounds and cocoa powder. Taste is similar. Plain

chinchill (2056) - 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 (3586) - 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 (156) - 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.
