COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Black Ale Brewed With Coffee Beans RED EYE Coffee porter is one of a series of special limited run beers in styles that are more EXTREME or unusual. Porter’s an elusive dark ale that has been constantly changing during its long 300 year history. We figured it was about RIPE for some REINVENTION. 23.3 Plato 40IBUs 9.2 ABV

Bottle. Pours a deep viscous black color, minimal head that quickly dissipates. Flavor is dark chocolate, medium roast coffee, cocoa powder, coffee malt, roasted malt, caramel malt. Finishes with a nice bittering hop note. Nicely done, Two Bros has been stepping up to the plate lately.

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAR 9, 2009
Pours a very dark espresso brown with thin tan colored head. Aroma is a heavy cacao/roasted hazelnut with woody/oak undertones. Flavor is roasted cacao beans with nutty undertones. Mild bitter notes that are offset by sweet chocolate flavors. The bitterness comes from the full city coffee roast notes. Body is light yet creamy with light carbonation.

Headbanger (3388) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2009
22oz bottle 3/8/09 (Sam’s Wine & Spirits-Downers Grove)-Pours dark with a nice tight tan head which emits an aroma of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malt. Taste begins with coffee and chocolate and that lasts throughout the mouthful. This full bodied brew finsihes with a nice sweetness. It hides the alcohol really well and is darn tasty. Good brew.

tjthresh (1866) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - MAR 6, 2009
Pours a bit darker than cola brown with a bit or dark tan head. Nose comes off like a chocolatey coffee syrup. Really balanced between a chocolatey porter and a stiff cup of coffee. Thick chewy mouthfeel with a lingering alcohol burn. I like it.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 5, 2009
Bottle: Pours a dark brown to black with a tan head. Aroma stale coffee, chocolate, some roast, earthy notes. Flavor, dark chocolate, roasted notes, coffee notes, some sugary sweetness in the finish, earthy bitterness. Medium to full body, not bad, but the coffee taste just seemed a bit off.

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - MAR 4, 2009
On tap. Pours a dark dark brown with a tan head, solid enough. The nose is sweet with strong day old coffee and something sharp, maybe a little astringent to acidic. Lightly creamy as well. Feel full and creamy in the mouth, as per both higher carbonation and residual sugar would suggest. The flavor is a little smoother than the nose. Rather sweet, definite chocolate, with strong older coffee. The acidic acridity is mellower. Something even maybe almost piney, like very bitter chocolate. Lingering coffee finish.

hombrepalo (1853) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 24, 2009
Bomber from Archer Liquors. Thick black motor oil pour with a dark tan head. Looks good. Stale coffee aroma with chocolate. Sweet to start, but then overpowered by bitter chocolate and coffee. Very intense flavor with a bitter alcohol and malt finish. Reminds me of a Founders Breakfast Sout. Ohh and I’m glad they changed it to a Imperial Strong Porter, cause it is strong...

sbroome (149) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 23, 2009
another fantastic coffee porter in a growing sea of coffee-infused beers. pours black and bleeds a medium thick head. nose is slightly sweet with a hint of smoke. mouth is silky and somewhat oily. taste is coffee and dark chocolate. tastes more like a stout than a porter, but is wonderful. if two brothers would make it in a 6 pack for $3.99, I would be a happy man. Excellent treat for any coffee/beer fanatics.

Nephilium (1415) - Ohio, USA - FEB 22, 2009
Very mild aroma, just a touch of roasted coffee. Pours an opaque black, with a big tan head. It starts with a touch of sweetness, followed by nut, and finished with a touch of mocha. Very slick mouthfeel, with almost no carbonation noticeable. Very drinkable, but nothing special.
