A big ol’ black beer with oatmeal silkiness. Full bodied with soothingly rich coffee flavors. Devilishly delicious. Classified as an Imperial Oatmeal Coffee Porter

Pours almost black with a thin creamy tan head. Aroma of bitter coffee and bittersweet chocolate. Taste much the same, almost like an unsweetened iced coffee. Nice!

Aromas of coffee, chocolate, butterscotch, and some vanilla. I could have smelled this all night. My first sip was decadence, and then the flavors deminished. Still a great beer.

This comes out of the bottle as a dark brown beer but turns black in the glass. The tan head is thin, but it does some nice lacing nonetheless. The predominant aroma is coffee supported by roasted dark malts and oatmeal. The flavor seems to intensify what’s found in the nose, and to that mix a little chocolate, alcohol, and earthy bitterness is added. Very smooth and quite tasty.

12 oz bottle shared with toncatcher. Awesome black pour with decent head. Aromas were super coffee. Iced black coffee on the flavor with just enough sweetness to make it a very very tasty brew.

12oz bottle courtesy of Hopscotch-A dark black body with a small tan head and an aroma of coffee, roasted malt, and sweetness. Taste of coffee and chocolate with the body being a little thin. Good tasting brew.

Bottle from Woodman’s East in Madison purchased 5/25. Enjoyed side by side with a 2005 Dark Lord. While very good, this proved to be inferior to the DL, although better in the quality-to-price ratio. Notes of dark roasted coffee and oatmeal on the nose lead into a decidedly (and deliciously) chewy chocolate and coffee beast. Well crafted, with a smooth and sweet finish.

Bottle (Thanks Ughsmash). Pours a deep, dark brown with a tiny tan head. This smelled more like coffee than what I drink in the morning!! Unreal the amount of coffee in the aroma. Also had some traces of oats and dark chocolate. Flavor is VERY roasted coffee, bordering on it being burnt. Very tasty if you like deep, rich, strong coffee.

realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - JUN 2, 2007
Bottle thanks to Badbeer and Nolankowal poured a deep dark brownish black color with a tiny tan head. The aroma was fresh roasted coffee beans with some oats, hops, chocolate, toffee and burnt malts. Flavor was almost like eating coffee beans with some oatmeal. The body was a bit thin with not much in the way of carbonation.

Big thanks to Quake1028 for bringing this coffee gone wild beer.

Pours deep brown in color with tan head. This beer has simply a huge coffee aroma. I can sense a light sweetness behind the coffee but that was about it. The flavor starts with big and bold black cup of coffee as well as some burnt malts. Just like the aroma the coffee is simply huge in the taste too. Reminds me a lot of Dunedin’s Coffee Brown Ale. This will go well along side of bacon, eggs and hash browns in the morning. I got no sense of the ABV.

Bottle. Unbelievable Porter. Poured a dark brown with a dark tan head. Aroma of coffee. Taste was complex, deep coffee flavor, subdued sweetness, and a nice malt flavor with a bit of tartness. Great mouthfeel! Excellent beer! I would buy this one again!
