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.

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.

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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.
