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.

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.

Strong nose of roasted coffee beans. Comes on with strong coffee flavor. Mouth feel is full bodied but smooth, with a bit of malt. Finishes with a smokey bean flavor and a bit of a kick.

On tap at the brewery. It pours dark brown with some red highlights and a tan head. The aroma is awesome with sweet coffee, mocha, light cocoa and vanilla. The flavor is dirty roast, nuts, dark chocolate and coffee. Earth and nuts are prominent in this one. Very coffee forward and tasty in smaller doses.
