I’m glad this is a red eye and not a brown eye. Draft. Dark maroon color, thick tan head, solid lacing. Aroma of nuts and toast. Taste is fiamy cafe macchiato. Nice.

Not the best coffee porter. Teh coffee used was odd. It was almost savory and soy saucey.

Chocolate malts, coffee, cherry, citrus hops, and a healthy splash of booze. I l love the complexity of this beast. I think it could use a bit of cellar time to mellow out, but I fear it might lose its coffee bitterness.

Thanks to the kind soul that shared this around. Pours a medium brown with a tan head. Nose is roasted coffee, roasted malts, and some earthy flavors and bitterness. Flavor is similar with roasted coffee, roasted malts, and earthy bitterness. It wears its heart on its sleeve and delivers what it promises.

Pours black with garnet highlights when held to light and a thin tan head. Aroma is coffee, nuts, toast, roast,some chocolate and dark fruit. Flavor is big on chocolate, nice, fruity coffee notes, roasted nuts, a little char and old campfire. Palate is medium to heavy in body, with a somewhat chewy, but not sticky feel throughout and light to medium and borderline sharp carbonation that fits the beer really well. Very nice brew overall, I really dig the mellow, but fairly strong coffee notes and assertive, but not over the top malt notes backing it up.

22 ounce bottle shared at Markwise’s Bday bash, poured a dark black color, aromas of coffee, flavors of coffee, and some light ash, touch of roasted malt. Nice beer overall, thanks for the share.

Smells really boozy but absolutely no alcohol burn, which is shocking for a 9.2% porter. Sweet taste up front and bitter on the back note. Definitely coffee but a raisin or currant taste with a slight smokey note. Black color and zero head, not even bubbles. Lively mouth feel, another surprise since there are no bubbles.
