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."

Tap at the Library Alehouse. Pours a deep brown with a medium bubbly tan head that left spotty lacing. Aroma of fresh ground coffee, toasted and roasted malt along with milk chocolate. Flavor of chocolate covered espresso beans. The mix of coffee meets chocolate is excellent. One of the top coffee beers I have had.

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.

Dogbrick (8907) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Sample at the Aces & Ales Winter Beer Fest on 01/17/2015. The beer is a brownish-black color with a medium foamy tan head that diminishes steadily. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Roasted coffee, malt and chocolate in the nose. Medium-bodied with flavors of roast coffee, chocolate malt and earthy hops. The finish is roasty with a coffee aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

Wow this is intense. Brown murky pour with minimal head. Aroma is roasty sweet coffee. Light lactose an: more coffee. Comes off very strong with coffee and not too much beer. Really good coffee flavor makes this interesting and good.
