500 ml bottle. Pours a dense black color with a monster sized head that has excellent retention. The aroma is big and bold with coffee, coffee and more coffee. The taste mirrors the aroma with coffee in the forefront followed by dark bitter baking chocolates and blackened malts. The palate is full and smooth and the carbonation is soft. Finishes long and dry with lingering coffee. Overall: One of the best coffee beers, ever.

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.

Redondo Beach, Ca - Rock ’N Brews Restaurant - on tap. Thick, oily black pour, sticky off-white head with sticky lacing. Aroma of coffee, hint of potting soil. Full-bodied flavor is full of licorice, some earthy potting soil notes, some bittersweet unsweetened chocolate. Thick, chalky mouthfeel. Exellent porter.

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.

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).

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.
