Bottle. Coffee bomb! Pours black with some beige bubbles that stick around the edges. Huge roasty coffee nose with chocolate and dark malts back there somewhere. Taste is similar -- like an iced coffee with clean bitterness but still identifiable as a porter. Nice long espresso bean finish, "chocolate covered espresso bean" is pretty on the nose. Easy drinking and very enjoyable, hard to argue with.

Library, Santa Monica tap: Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is coffee and much of it, with a few hints of chocolate. Taste is way more coffee than most beers provide. Body is pretty light when push comes to shove. I agree with previous commentators who said that this could use more malts and body. That said, the favors that were there were quite good.

Black with a brown head. The aroma smells like wonderful cold brewed coffee with a hint of chocolate and roasted malt. The flavor has a lot of bitter coffee notes as well as some chocolate. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Great beer.

Bottle. Poured a dark brown, almost black with a small sized head. Yes, coffee in my coffee beer! Iced coffee, roast, and all around coffee. Body a bit on the thin side (but like drinking iced coffee).

Opaque, medium brown color, two-finger dense white head and moderate lace. Delicious freshly ground coffee beans dominate the aroma, with a background that includes milk chocolate, roasted malt and a hint of leafy hop. Coffee is dialed back just a little in the flavor profile, allowing the milk chocolate sweetness and floral character to peek through a bit more. Full body, creamy mouthfeel, minimal carbonation, and coffee in the finish that stays with you all the way home. Very nice.

The smell is overwhelming coffee. When they say coffee porter they mean it. I wish it had other tastes to offer but it’s coffee, watery, with that bitter coffee/coca bean taste. It could us more ABV, more malt. If you like a roasted coffee bean porter, you will love this one.
