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

hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Bottle... Pours black with no head. The nose is a blend of coffee, caramel, vanilla and dark chocolate. Medium to full-bodied with lively carbonation. The flavor is a bit thin, but offers deeply-roasted notes of burnt cocoa and singed nuts with lightly acidic and acrid components. Finishes roasty and slightly tart. Bottle courtesy of FlandersNed!
