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.

Ataraxia (363) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Translucent dark brown, frothy beige head. Strong aroma of vanilla, mocha, and syrup. Sweet hazelnut taste. Smooth, but surprisingly thin - almost watery, and medium-bodied at most. Small alcohol presence.

From the can labeled Best Before 10 Jul 2013. I am trying this a few months after that. It pours nice with its dark brown to nearly black look with a slightly lingering beige head. The nose of coffee and chocolate for the most part but letting me know they’re there are the cherry fruit notes. No booze considering it is 10% ABV. Creamy and above average body. While the chocolate and coffee present their egos ahead of everything else on the nose, the cherry bides its time and sneaks up behind those two characters. No booze taste hut I’ll feel the 10% ABV later I bet.

TBone (12544) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Draught@RNH. Dark amber-brown color, good creamy brownish head. Light milk chocolaty aroma. Medium-bodied. Sweetish flavor. Chocolate, caramalt, cocoa, light ashy toastyness. Quite easy drinking for this ABV. Certainly more a porter than a stout.

StefanSD (2118) - Lakeside, California, USA - NOV 12, 2013
12 oz can. Pours a dark brown color with a large beige head that has great retention. The aroma is rich with mocha, coffee and vanilla. The taste, like the nose, is loaded with mocha, vanilla, coffee, saccharine and biter walnuts. The palate is full and creamy with soft carbonation. The finish is long with lingering bitter coffee grounds. Overall: Decent coffee brew but a touch to sweet for me. Note--I found this can of beer in the bottom of an old trade box as I was reusing packing peanuts. This was a very pleasant surprise, but I have no idea who sent it to me, sorry.

SpringsLicker (3127) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Very dark brown body, just shy of opaque. Thin tan head. The aroma is roast malts and cocoa powder. Rich and roasty flavor. Stops right before a burnt flavor. Minimal sweetness to balance.

rougeau13 (1987) - Richmond, Texas, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Very dark brown. Tan head. Aroma of strong molasses, with coffee and toffee. Medium bodied, a little dry, some booze tingle. Lots of coffee flavor; moderate bitterness, a little sweet.

finol (2145) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 8, 2013
Can from Beer Table Pantry. Pours dark brown with a big tan head. Nice roasted malt, some coffee and chocolate.

kevinator (888) - The Colony, Texas, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Not a bad coffee ale but not your standard porter or imperial for that matter. Mild coffee aroma. Coffee with cream color with an off-white head. Decent palate with some smoothness and average carbonation. The flavor was mainly coffee with some chocolate and roasted grains to follow . Not much there on the hops front. Drinkable as an after-dinner beer and the alcohol was hidden well.

burg326 (3667) - Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Poured a dark brown from the can with aromas of roast, dryness, and earth. Flavors are roast, light dry coffee, and some earth. Decent porter overall doesn’t taste like a 10% abv beer.

From a bottle. Quite nice, and drinkable for a big beer. Nice subtle coffee flavor.
