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

Not a bad beer. I thnk the coffee has faded a fair bit but it is still evident. The abv is extremely well integrated and unoticeable. The porter is rich and chocolatey but lacking a little something.

Bomber to snifter (shared with alexsdad06 and jmborggren). Looks good; a mostly opaque dark coffee with light beige lacing. Smells solid; dark malt and chocolate with a semi-sweet backbone and some roast. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Bottle shared at the Coffee District. Dark brown pour with a kaki head. Caramel and coffee aromas. Rye, bitter watery black coffee. Below average mouthfeel and body.

Black in color with brown hues and a light brown head, this has a smooth, rich and chocolaty aroma that has only a touch of coffee. It’s very classy, and super awesome. Smooth in the mouth, as well, with a great, easy feel on the palate. Yet, it delivers some really awesome, classy rich, roasted, and homogeneous. Yummers. Super sessionable for the content and ABV.

Iphonephan (4993) - McLean, Virginia, USA - MAY 27, 2013
From a 22 oz bottle shared at home. Pours black with a tan head. Mild roasted malt aroma. Creamy mouth feel with moderate carbonation. Coffee is quite subdued. Hop notes dominate. Tasty, though.

DeliveryDriver (170) - Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Pours black with a half finger tan head that dissipates. Very complex nose, toffee, licorice, plumb, milk chocolate. Complexity moves on to the tongue, just a lot of roasty malts bringing out a lot of flavor. Nice toffee and plumb aftertaste. Medium bodied beer, alcohol is well hidden, and went down velvety smooth. This was not what I was expecting at all, and I have to say this was a pleasant surprise.

Sweet loving, this is some amazing stuff. One of the best beers I’ve ever had (out of a bottle) and would love to snag again. An extremely roasty brew with a tart espresso finish and notes of plums, chocolate, coffee, and dark grains. Absolutely stunning.

GT2 (9412) - Oceanside, California, USA - JAN 9, 2013
651mL thanks to one of my bros in a trade. I think my secret santa. Pours clear, deep brown to black. A high gravity pour generates a medium, tan head. Good formation. Weak retention and little lace. Nose is blue Kool - Aid burst, moving to green coffee like jalapeños. Taste is sweet, boozy, sticky, very sugary. No coffee flavor and no balancing hoppiness. Did they forget to bitter this beer? Whoops.
