Dark brown color, edge head. Aroma of Starbucks. Very light bodied, flavor is of over roasted coffee, just like a Starbucks. More like drinking a cup of coffee than a porter.

Tap at Barcade. I had the 2008 vintage. Very decent but it didn’t live up to my expectations. Everything about the beer was a little light. Aroma of slightly roasted malts and mild coffee. Flavor was pleasant, some malty sweetness, tasty notes of chocolate and coffee. Clean with a hint of bitter bite on the finish. Sort of like a Brownstone with some coffee.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Ever since apoptosis and notalush turned me onto Gorilla coffee, it has been the only coffee I have in my house... so I was very excited to see this on tap. Deep black beer with a thick tan head. Aroma is loaded with sweet chocolatey malt and a heavy roastiness. A touch of creamy character and a heavy chocolatey flavour. Quite chewy and sweet with a lovely complex maltiness. A soft coffeeish flavour on the back along with the lingering roastiness. Excellent brew.
