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."

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.

Draft @ Crowne, LAX. Aroma had a very nice coffee note to it, like actual coffee. Dark brown color with beige head, nice lacing. Can taste the actual coffee, with a bit of bitterness to offset. Nice roast notes. Med to full bodied. A very delicious beer!

Never had a coffee porter before and it was very interesting. Lots of complex flavors which I really enjoyed, and the coffee flavor and even texture came through. Had a bitter aftertaste which wasn't bad per say, but was a bit too strong for my tastes. Overall a good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
