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

Bottle from trade with drewbeerme. Daark brown with tan head. Aroma is strong coffee. Flavor is roasted malts, a lotta coffee, and a lil bits of oat and hop notes. Well balanced but just not that much going on. Alcohol well hidden. Nice, easy drinking but I guess I was expecting a little more pow.

12 ounce bottle from Ughsmash. Opaque, very dark fudgy brown with a dark brown mostly fading head. Aroma is mostly coffee. Actually, it smells just like those bulk coffee bins in the supermarket. There’s some background chocolate character. The flavor is double shot mochaccino with a chocolate donut. Really robust coffee flavor. Rich silky mouth feel. Bitter finish. Pretty pleasant.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - MAR 6, 2007
Bottle via trade with Ughsmash. Pours pitch black and thick with a tan head. Chocolate malt aroma with big coffee grounds notes. More chocolate malt in the flavor a very rich coffee note. Somewhat astringent and fruity. Clean, dry finish.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - MAR 6, 2007
12 ounce bottle. Pours brown out of the bottle, but appears black in the glass. Powerful nose, dominated by coffee. Fairly nice flavor, also dominated by coffee. Mild hints of fruits after the mid-palate. Would love to taste more decadent malt (chocolate or caramel, etc.) None of the Brewers Gone Wild beers have been super impressive. They’re good brews, just not great.

I’m not the biggest fan of Tyranena’s regular offerings, but this is the second of their "Brewer’s Gone Wild" series I’ve tried, and thought both very good. This is a sweet but intensely roasty porter. This beer poured an inky black and had very little head which stuck to the side of my glass. Aroma was very resiny...smelled like singed tree sap. The smell was almost like tar, which wasn’t a bad thing. Taste was a sweet coffee taste up front (think coffee ice cream) with a lot of roastiness ("burned pizza crust") following at the finish. Delicious. Mouthfeel is a bit rough, but still drinkable.

The pour is a very dark brown with a two finger dirty white head. It looked picture perfect. The aroma is very much of coffee grounds, used ones. The flavor starts out coffee with a creamy feel and finishes nicely dry. This is a very good proter.

Bottle: Aroma is loaded with roasted cofee with moderate dark chocolate and a hint of vanilla. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a small beige head. The flavor starts with moderate chocolate that is quickly overtaken with lots of roasted coffee. There are some hints of caramel in the background. It’s very cafe mocha-ish.

Black in color, thin layer of whitish head. Nice strong espresso/coffee aroma without the stale coffee smell that some coffee porters/stouts have. Also some nutty oatmeal aromas. Medium-light in body. Nice to drink a beer that features coffee, but doesn’t feel heavy. Roasted chocolate malt flavors with a slightly bitter but not caustic finish. A good balance of coffee flavors and porter characteristics.

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 2, 2007
Bottle... Pitch black ale has a small, creamy, dark beige head with an orange tint. Lots of freshly ground coffee in both the aroma and flavor. Maybe some cocoa, maybe not... mostly coffee. Tangy flavor; mildly acidic with medium, singed bitterness. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Very lightly sour, bitter finish. Kudos to ughsmash for shipping the bottle to me!
