otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2012
Appearance: dark browns, pouring slight murky like liquid earth and coffee grinds. Creamy tan head – vivacious.
Nose: melted caramel, fresh espresso crema. Melted chocolate in the back. Vanilla bean. Sweet smoke. Whisper of dark stone fruits.
Palate: chocolate cake. Mild front, full middle, and medium finish. Lasting dry finish of chocolate powder and burnt graham crackers. Vanilla and caramel underneath – creamy and sweet then brittle and caramelized. Freshly brewed coffee – French press. Very well balanced with a cakey mouthfeel. Sweet smoke, like campfire smoke, in my breath.
Final Thoughts: another hit from Tequesta’s Big Hitter line of beers. Seriously, I love Matt’s beers and so should you. Grab your calendar and make a date to go down to Tequesta to visit.

From notes. First reviewed 12/11/2011. Poured from a 32 oz. growler into a pint glass. After a very nice and surprising ’pop’ when the growler opens, a very nice robust tan head rests on top of a deep ebony beer. The head fades, which I expect based on the ABV and the fact it came out of a growler. Full roasted malt character, a bit of dark unsweetened chocolate, and full roast coffee notes control the nose. There is hardly any sweetness, just a slightly bitter roast malt and dark bitter chocolate presence that grows as the coffee works its way in. Toward the end a bit of earthy hops come in, but it is pretty light. As the bitterness wanes at the end of the sip, a bit of vanilla and cream come in. The carbonation is more lively than smooth, and there is an oily coffee residue that comes in after each sip that is a bit unpleasant. The body is on the fuller side of medium, and it feels a bit acidic from the coffee. This is a very nice coffee porter. The acidic coffee nature and the oily residue left over after each sip bring it down a bit.

Nice porter, solid roasted malts with a great coffee backdrop. Wonderful head, with decent lacing. A little off ba

On draft at the Coffee District, pours a dark black color with a frothy khaki head. Huge coffee aroam with some vanilla poking through. Tastes like an iced coffee with some vanilla, and a smidge of caramel added. Aftertaste has a touch of bitterness at the end, but it makes you want more. Really nice brew, I wish I could get this stuff over on the west coast of Florida.

hopscotch (9113) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2011
Draft… Pours practically black with a small, creamy, taupe head. Good retention. Aromatically, I’m picking up caramel, mocha (heavier on the coffee than the chocolate) and vanilla. Full-bodied and velvety with jazzy carbonation. The flavor furnishes bittersweet, deep roast coffee and a touch of black chocolate. There’s vanilla here as well. Finishes acrid with loads of coffee grounds. Excellent effort by Matt.
