michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2010
Draught at the BrewPub’s 15 Anniversary Party: Aroma of bitter coffee. Poured deep amber/brown in color with a small, tan head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer, as well as around the edges. Clear. Not sparkling. Good lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and light to medium bitter. Tastes of bitter coffee and light cream. Medium body. Lightly thin, then dry texture. Soft to average carbonation. Lightly sweet, medium bitter, coffee and cream finish is dry.

TomDecapolis (4500) - Milton, Delaware, USA - DEC 21, 2010
Tap at both locations. Pours a brownish amber with a medium creamy off white head that left some lacing. Aroma of fresh cold pressed coffee, nuts, caramel and hints of vanilla. REally well done coffee aroma. Flavor of the same coffee, some chocolate and nuts/caramel poking through. A little thin on the body. Reminded me much more of a coffee brown ale. Not quite on par with a porter.

Beerman6686 (4423) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2013
This one poured a darker red color with a fluffy nitro beige head. Aroma was of lots of coffee, some latte mliky notes and light earthy tones. Flavor was much the same, just straight coffee and lightly toasted malts, nothing else getting in the way. A great session coffee beer.

cheap (4110) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Not bad for a coffee porter. On tap at the bocktown. Nice dark pour. Decent creamy head. Smells like good coffee, what else? Good coffee taste without going over the top. Not rude at all. Decent co2. Some black coffee bitter in the finsh, but that’s to be expected. An easy beer to like. Must be less than 5%.

reggiedunlop (3109) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Pours deep brown with a medium tan head. Aroma has nice light roasted coffee...like a breakfast roast. Flavor is good coffee...bitter and roasty. Mouthfeel is light and a bit thin with a fresh roasted coffee finish.
