Bomer poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of bakers cocoa, coffee, roastiness and light vanilla. Palate was medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of coffee, cocoa and roastiness with a crisp dry lingering coffee finish.

22 oz. bottle. Murky brown pour, decently sized bubbly white head. Nose and flavor both remind me of Coffee Bender but with less depth and vibrancy; notes of hazelnut, roasted coffee, and caramel. Good, not great.

Tap @ FG w e. Thin-bodied porter with typical choco-coffee aroma and taste with a bit more sweetness than usual. Finishes smooth. Straight-forward but the coffee and chocolate are crisp and not artificial.

A delightful scent. A smooth beverage. I taste hops and slight caramel. The coffee and roasted malts are distinct in flavor. If you like hops and coffee this is a must try.
