COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

EithCubes (5248) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 7, 2015
Bomber BORN ON 03/06/15. Nose heavy chocolate and dark roast, very nice and rich coffee, grape and plum background, some sugary sweetness but not much, faint vanilla, great espresso overtones, really fat and inviting. Pours sark brown, black in the glass, with a rocky tanned/light brown head, lace. Taste medium bitterness, not really acrid, very earthy, lots of singed and scorched notes, medium fruitiness with plums and red berry, and lots and lots of (pot brewed) coffee. The malt complexity / malt overtones die somewhat in the mouth. Smooth, somewhat soft (this undone a bit by the light acidity) without being velvety. Heavy medium-full body.

rosenbergh (8690) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 11, 2015
Draught at the Speakeasy, San Francisco, CA.
Black colour with a small creamy tan head. The aroma is pure coffee... dark roasted coffee... black coffee. And somehow it doesn’t bother me at all. It’s a miracle. The coffee in the flavour is a bit too much for me. I really can’t get anything else but coffee out of this. Coffee.

Pours black with a khaki head. Coffee, chocolate and roasted malt aroma. Coffee, chocolate, coasted malt and cream flavors. Medium body and carbonation. Coffee and roasted malt finish.

katrinaez (619) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 22, 2015
UPDATED: APR 5, 2015 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. Bottle

Fatehunter (1693) - 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 (3253) - 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 (12906) - 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 (7674) - 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.

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.
