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

Bomber pours dark brown/black with a medium tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, and fruits. Taste is slight soy followed my coffee and chocolate malt. Decent but not amazing or unique.

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.

Pours a dark black black with no head. Aroma of coffee and nothing else. Taste follows, coffee forward, very nice. I'm glad I tried it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
