This limited edition Payback Porter is brewed with a special fall espresso blend called Sugar Skull from our friends at San Francisco’s Ritual Coffee Roasters. Their fresh crop coffee beans are the perfect partner in crime to Payback’s blend of Chilean chocolate malts and rolled oats.

Really tasty beverage. Coffee is gritty and bitter but thick and the Porter is rich and heavy. It’s a lower abv for the flavor and heft of it. Deep coloring and enjoyable. Nice change

Fatehunter (1472) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Pours two fingers of tan head on a black body. The aroma is a super blend of fresh chili peppers and coffee. The taste is chocolate, coffee bitter, roasted malt and milk. Really nice. The texture is smooth and soft. Excellent overall.

SpringsLicker (3213) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Black with a tan head. Rich aroma of roast malt, coffee, chocolate. The flavor is rich and smooth. Lots of coffee and roast malts, all well balanced and delivered on a silky smooth body. Good stuff!

Theydon_Bois (11101) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2014
Keg at the Commons Ale House, Santa Monica, 16/04/14. Black with a good sized tan covering that retains well. Nose is light roast, touch of coffee, chocolate notes, a little basic and not carrying a huge array of flavours. Taste comprises roast malt, dark fruit pangs, chcocolate, more coffee than the aroma dictated, hint of red berry fruit. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok porter but lacks depth for the ABV - was expecing more!

Bomber shared by Marcus. Pours black with a slight tan head. Aroma is very strong coffee. My nose is all over the map: chili? chocolate? both? anise? Med body. Flavor is chocolate. It has all the aspects of chili, including burn. Except it isn’t, because my sensitivity denies the presence of capsaicin. This is really fun stuff!

marcus (7083) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Pours dark brown with a modest tan head and a chocolate and coffee aroma. There is a spicy chocolate flavor with a smooth oat finish and lots of bitter coffee.

mikedR (1453) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - FEB 19, 2014
Definitely one of the better coffee porters I’ve had. The story here is coffee. In aroma and taste. If they said this was a stout I wouldn’t argue otherwise.

sodakotakid (230) - Belle Fourche, South Dakota, USA - FEB 16, 2014
pours a nice dark black with an average brown head that dissipates quickly. There is a sweet roasted malt taste with some bitter chocolate and coffee.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Bottle:   What a wonderful coffee Porter.   Dry and very much coffee like, smooth, dark in color, moderate head with nice lacing.   Sweet roasted malts, coffee, some dark or bakers chocolate, a touch dry and ashy.   Smooth, very smooth, with loads of sweetened coffee.   Nice cocoa or dark chocolate notes compliment the coffee.   Not a heavy example, but rather smooth.   Amazing how a complex beer with so much going on can get a high score, and then something so simple as coffee infused Porter can do the same.   Great balance, fairly sweet, rich roastiness, and just a great example of a coffee Porter.   Way better than most!

alobar (2967) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Pours tar black with a creamy tan head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt, and chocolate. Excellent lacing! Coffee flavor upfront with chocolate, vanilla, and slight roasted malt. Creamy body. Very nice beer.
