Tap at the Ginger Man, Manhattan - 29/05/12. Dark brown approaching black with a moderate tan head. Big cofffee nose allied to a little sweetish malt and a touch of fruit. Blast of fresh coffee in the taste Light to medium in body, moderate carbonation, smooth finish. A very well done coffee porter, did what it said on the tin and didn’t dissappoint!

Pours dark brown with so red accents coming through the light. Aromas of coffee, slight green olives(the complex aromas give off this impression), brownies, and cocoa. The flavors are, well, just a bit strage together. There is the coffee up front with light roasted grain malts, light cocoa or chocolate, and floral hops that set the flavors off. The malts seem to be fine but maybe it was the hops that really made the infusion of flavors strange. A little acidic, touch of sour, little hints of sweetness, and leaves a traced hint of bitter/roasty aftertaste. Im thinking that the bitterness is coming mostly from the coffee.

Draught. Nice black with tan lace. Coffee aroma, some roasty malts. Nice flaovr, somewhat like a dry stout, coffee, a bit of dark chocolate, not very sweet at all. Light body, very drinkable.

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.

22oz bottle pours a hazy, deep brown with one ring of white head. Nose of coffee, toasted bread, brown sugar, caramel. Flavors are the same. Watery finish.

Advocate_Ames (446) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2012
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.
