COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gold Medal Winner - 2012 Great American Beer Festival, Denver, CO - Coffee Beer
A coffee-beer, rather than a beer with coffee. A robust porter aged on fresh locally roasted, fair trade ground coffee. Enhanced flavors of chocolate, roasted malt, and of course coffee are present. "Like a chocolate covered espresso bean."

ben4321 (4744) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 16, 2015
Location: Bottle shared at Max and Andy’s Tasting, 2/28/15

Aroma: Lots of coffee on the nose (no surprise here) and roasted malts
Appearance: It is dark brown in color, with a nice, creamy, light brown/tan head on top
Flavor: The taste is again, strongly coffee, sweetness is light, solidly bitter
Palate: Smooth and clean mouthfeel, easy drinking, with a soft carbonation
Overall Impression: This is a very solid coffee porter, lots of coffee obviously. Very nice mouthfeel/drinkability. This does what you want a coffee porter to do, and it does it nicely.

arminjewell (8602) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 12, 2015
Pour on tap, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of big coffee, espresso, coffee grounds into some chocolate, some dark caramel, molasses, hints of roasted malt as well. Taste was a mix of cocoa, roast, and espresso into nice dark chocolate, some molasses into a hint of spice, finishing bitter, more coffee. Like a glass of iced coffee with some beer, my type of beer.

jjgmd (1697) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - FEB 22, 2015
With Zach, pours a dark brown black deep color with s nice large Java head. Aroma is a literally fresh grounded cup of joe. Taste is through and through joe, sweet, malty and delicious. Finishes on the same tasting notes, with a long finish. Maybe I’ll fry some eggs and bacon. Great tasty coffee porter. Quaff Score 8 / 10

Pungent coffee aromas could use a bit more sweetness. Nice coffee flavor with balanced hop bitterness. Fantastic creamy finish.
