COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Coffee in beer? Brilliant!! We have infused thirty pounds of locally roasted Aduro Bean coffee into this smooth, jet-black lager. The beer alone is very unique; a high gravity, Baltic style porter, which is brewed using lots of crystal and roasted malts. Two separate infusion methods impart the flavor of freshly brewed coffee and the aroma of freshly roasted beans. The roasted malt flavors of the beer unite with the beautiful character of gourmet coffee. The aroma says it all!

Handbottle from Tejas. You know who. Pours dark brown/black but halogen reveals ruby in the thin parts of the glass. The head is really foamy tan. The aroma is strongly coffee. It’s a smooth coffee - not harsh espresso. Medium plus body with foamy carbonation. I think there’s smooth burnt malt in the background, but the coffee is just all over it. But, again, a smooth, almost silky coffee - not harsh. Call this the Starbucks of coffee porters. Covey certainly does not skimp on ingredients. But then all the money is in Texas.

Black with a khaki head. Nose is roasted coffee, roasted malts, and fresh coffee beans. Nice on the palate, great coffee flavor, toasty finish, delicious.

thanks to Fratto and Cavie for sending this to the Tally tasting! Pours dark brown to black with a medium tan head. Aroma is strong chocolate and coffee. Flavor is strong bitter espresso and bittersweet cocoa. This is rich and delicious.

Growler from Tally Tasting 2010. Thanks to the crew for the share. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Nose is chocolate, slight roast, but what really shines is the large hit of coffee. Flavor is similar-- coffee shines through. This comes through in body, flavor, and aroma as a strong porter, as I did not get any yeast or dark fruit from the Baltic Style. Style, Schmile as this bad boy is a very tasty coffee beer. Medium bodied and very nice.

Growler… Tally Tasting ‘10This beer rocks!… Very dark (basically black) lager with a small, creamy, off-white head. Decent retention. The bouquet is slap-you-right-in-the-face rich, fierce and bold. Huge, scorched aduro coffee beans. Notes of tobacco and dark chocolate, but the beautiful, beastly coffee is the star of this show. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. The flavor is all about carbonaceous, bitter, acrid espresso goodness. Mildly acidic, tangy, espresso finish. Kudos to Fratto and Cavie for supplying this world class beer!

6/26/2010. Shared from a growler sent up for the Tallahassee tasting by Cavie and Fratto! Big coffee aroma with a dash of sour fruitiness. Huge coffee taste again with a hint of sour fruitiness. A little lighter than expected, but quite tasty and the alcohol is hidden well. Delish.

Tallahassee Tasting at Proof/Liquor Loft - from a growler. Strong coffee aroma - almost like a fresh brewed pot. Flavor is chock full of strong, bold coffee, loads of chocolate and a back end of rich black earth. Mouthfeel is thick and rich. Excellent.

Handbottle thanks to Cavie! Poured black with grayish brown head that was thick and dissipated to the edges with slight lace. Aroma was full of coffee with a nice roasted note present as well. Flavor is quite similar with more roast at the beginning and the coffee flavor grows and they meld well at the finish. A solid beer and different for a Baltic Porter, but a bit too much coffee for me to love.
