COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Hoptagon (239) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAR 22, 2013
12oz. Can. Dark brown pour with a thick tan froth. Love the aromatics on this beer. Huge well rounded roasty coffee nose without any harshness. Flavor is similar to cold brewed coffee with a light roasted character and minimal bitterness. Some cocoa notes in the background as well. Only real knock on this beer is that the body is too thin and watery for the big coffee punch. Still an enjoyable beer that I’m glad I got to try.

Pouring at the Night of the Barrels at Extreme Beer Fest. Pours a clear brown with garnet tones and a thin beige head. Roast, coffee on the nose. Chocolate, coffee, roast. Very nice mouthfeel, velvety smooth. Sweet cocoa, roast.

Dark black pour. Completely opaque. Thick khaki head with good lacing. Very chocolaty aroma. Plenty of roastiness. Noticeable alcohol aroma. Medium to thick mouthfeel. Very roasty oaky beginning. Very chocolaty middle and finishes with coffee. Can tell its cold brewed coffee. No bitterness. Mild booziness throughout. ---Rated via iPhone

Pour is dark brown with a nice frothy tan head. Nose is dark chocolate, coffee, malt and roasted goodness. Taste is bitter at first from the hops but mostly black coffee. Hint of sweetness with bitter dark chocolate as well. Mouthfeel is medium and lively with nice carbonation. Certainly a lighter porter and not nearly as viscous as a stout. Nice drinkable beer with no real alcohol burn from the 10% abv. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ReggieDunlap (2924) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Pours dark brown/black with a medium lt tan head. Aroma has roasty coffee and hints of dark fruit...slightly boozy and a faint hint of magic marker. Flavor follows suit...i like the coffee but the dark fruit doesnt seem to work with it. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is roasty/burnt and warming.

Marheb (1747) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 18, 2013
L’arôme est dominé par un caramel torréfié et un côté pimenté. En bouche c’est pas aussi onctueux que certains de ses semblable mais le corps est quand même confortable. Bel équilibre, alccol bien enfoui, belle buvabilité.

12oz can pours a hazy, deep brown with some creamy, off white head. Nose of malt, toast, vanilla beans, cola, a little dust. Flavor is very sweet, loads of caramel, cocoa nibs, vanilla beans, malt, cola, chestnut honey. Finishes a little dusty. I think this needs to be ultra-fresh to be any good.
