"Opens up so nicely. Roasted coffee, earthy hops, a touch of chocolate on the nose. The flavor is a little more bitter than sweet, more earthy coffee beans and a touch of hops. Nicely balanced and very smooth. High quality across the board. Started out a high 3, but got better every sip. Thanks Heybeerman for the trade."

Rich earthy coffee and dark cocoa bitterness with hints of the fruitiness Iíve had from some dark chocolates. Quite tasty, though the coffee isnít my favorite "type" of coffee flavor.

Bottle from my Secret Summer Santa 2014. Pours black as Coke with a small creamy tanned head. Aroma of dark malts, coffee, tar and liquorice. Smooth and oily mouthfeel.Lots of coffee in the taste, oatmeal and dark bitter chocolate, lovely lingering coffee.

The Brewers Gone Wild series is consistently excellent and this super-smooth porter is a terrific example. Lots of coffee and chocolate in the aroma and just a tiny hint of bitterness more out of the chocolate than any stray hops. Well worth tracking down when itís in season.

tmoreau (2902) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Approx. 2 year cellared 12 oz. bottle, shared and poured to snifters, showing a black/brown hue, with some ruby highlighting, a modest layer of tan head foam, and spots & strands of lacing. The nose started with a bit of salty soy, then roasted notes, cocoa, a little syrupy sweetness, molasses, coffee, and a hint of earthy peat on the back. Medium bodied, the texture was a little watery, with soft carbonation, a conglomeration of the aroma notes with no one standing out, and a slightly tart edge to the finish. Not bad, but didnít hold up to the cellaring as I would have liked, and lost most of the oatmeal influence.

Huhzubendah (2942) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle from Discount Liquors in Milwaukee. Served alongside the barrel-aged version. Dark brown body with a small beige head. Lovely aroma, consisting of rich coffee, freshly ground coffee beans, bready malts, roast, chocolate - everything youíd expect from reading the label. Nice flavor. Oats and coffee play so well together. Super smooth while maintaining a bold and assertive coffee presence throughout. A fine example of a coffee porter / stout.

Damico (2857) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Pours thick dark rich coffee with a darker beige head. Aroma is amazing, big coffee with some sweet mocha and vanilla. Flavor brings coffee and roasted bitter malts on a smooth creamy body.

12 ounce bottle. Pours almost black with a decent tan head. Aroma of malt, coffee, and chocolate. Taste is roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, and some alcohol. Oats give it a somewhat creamy body. Nice.
