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

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.

Draft at taproom. Black creamy beige head. Milk chocolate. Clean coffee. Some licorice. Mild roasty. Minimal bitter. Semi sweet. Medium body. Some alcohol, but you’d never think 9+%. Nice. I’d have it again.

Bomber from dusty.....one of the best coffee porters i have i ever tried....so many times the coffee is overdone and it ruins the beer....this beer had the perfect amount of coffee mixed in and it was excellent.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2015
Bottle Wholefoods, Orlando. Ruby black porter, thin white head. Rich, bitter coffee flavour, sharp aroma. This is an intense beer on all levels, you can taste the beans, the chocolate, the roast, everything.

Aurelius (5094) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 1, 2015
Inky, with a medium khaki head that has an oatmeal consistency. Tangy roasted aroma with a little black olive and creosote. Pleasant roast, smooth, modestly sweet but it has some candied-fruity flares at times. Tangy, sweetish aftertaste with trailing java. Better than I expected. On tap, Momos. Leather

On tap at The Top. Nice porter with big coffee notes that really doesn’t drink up to the ABV. Pretty decent overall, but nothing overly exciting.
