Take thou also unto thee wheat, and barley, and beans... and put them in one vessel. The beans of bygone brewers, united with cacao and coffee, to create a trinity of roasted, rich, and savory flavors.

Aurelius (4677) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Nutty, toasty-roasty aroma with some dark chocolate. Good can, very dark beer, huge tan head. Had to wait a while for the foam to subside in the snifter. The foam is cocoa-bitter. Very smooth, rich. Lots of dark cocoa, sturdy coffee flavors, medium sweetness, some milkiness. Medium-heavy, unctuous body, lasting bitterness with a strong bittersweet chocolate character. ABV is well-masked. Really good. ABC Liquors, Betton.

The aroma is very toasted with coffee, chocolate, and molasses. The appearance is dark red brown with a large foamy head. The taste is like the aroma but has a bitter finish. The palate is smooth. Overall a very interesting beer and if it wasn’t so astringent it would be a top 5ver.

This is nice ... *really* nice. Smooth. First impression is sweet. Upon more contemplation I am getting chocolate and coffee notes as well. Cannot believe the ABV is so high for a porter -- incredibly well hidden. Did I mention it’s smooth? Would love to see a stout version. As an aside, still not clear on the difference between a Baltic porter and that which does not harken in spirit from the Baltic region. Cest la vie.

jbruner (2985) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Pours an almost opaque brownish black from the can with fluffy cream head that dissipates to leave good lacing. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, and roasted malts. Taste is coffee, chocolate, coffee, soy, and more coffee, with a lingering coffee bitterness. Solid, no hint of the booze.

DialSquare (3523) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Can from ABC on Betton. Deep dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Aroma is pleasant roasty, dark chocolate and coffee. Tastes are cocoa, coffee, vanilla, nutty, caramel. Thin, slick and lively. Little medicinal alcohol comes through late. Nice enough sipper.

Cybercat (4086) - Georgia, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Comes out of the can a rich, warm coffee brown with a fairly thick, if not overly persistent, tan head. Strong aroma has a core of roast malt and firm notes of quality coffee and semi-sweet chocolate plus a hint of molasses. Sublimely smoky flavor delights with notes of coffee and chocolate, plus a hint of molasses and a snip of hops. Smooth texture has a good amount of fizz, and though not as thick as a stout, is good for a porter. "Bean" nice drinking ya!

anders37 (19545) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2013
Can. Pours a dark ruby black color with a tan head. Has a roasted malty coffee aroma. Roasted malty coffee flavor with hints of chocolate. Has a roasted malty coffee finish.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 30, 2013
Can from akurzinski - thanks, Adam! Sweet sludgy black pour with a crisp, thin beige head. Nose of very rich dark chocolate, coffee grounds almost as a complement rather than the lead voice. Thick creamy body, perhaps not quite dry enough and so it comes across as all milkshake. Flavors are pretty nice though, with burnt sugar, molasses, and hints of fruitiness from the bean, all adding to the overall richness of the base impy porter. Pretty good stuff.

zvikar (4070) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - MAY 29, 2013
Bottle shared at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Pours brown to red clear with a nice head, aroma of coffee, coffee and coffee, roasted with vanilla, wood and soil, flavor of coffee, coffee liquor, irish cream and vanilla, some fruit, medium bodied, nice, I like coffee beers

DiarmaidBHK (3785) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Can from Grower and gill. Pours black with a thin khaki head that dissipates quickly but leaves a lot of sticky lacing. Slight coffee notes on the nose. Bits of roasted flavor on the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid but not spectacular.
