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

Iím not the biggest fan of Tyranenaís regular offerings, but this is the second of their "Brewerís Gone Wild" series Iíve 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 wasnít 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. Itís 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 doesnít feel heavy. Roasted chocolate malt flavors with a slightly bitter but not caustic finish. A good balance of coffee flavors and porter characteristics.

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!

Bottle. So, Iíve consumed about 4 of these now. So, it pours to a black body with a really dense and largely bubbled creamy mocha brown head. Nice lacing. The aroma is rich, sweet milk chocolate, espresso, and oatmeal brownies. The flavor is rich. Coffee brownies, oatmeal, milk chocolate molten sugar, and vanilla. The palate is rich, creamy, and has that nice oatmeal feel. I like it. The flavor is good and the beer is balanced.

Pours an opaque oily black with a large frothy dark tan head that leaves a spider web of thin lace behind as it subsides. Huge coffee aroma has some mild earthy caramel and dark chocolate undertones. Body starts with some sticky caramel malty sweetness and a finely dissolved carbonation that eventually dries out into a more bittersweet roasty mocha finish. Fairly smooth mouthfeel and big coffee presence make for an interesting and enjoyable brew.

Beer pours pitch-black with dark tan/brown head. Head quickly fades, leaving brown ring around pint glass. Nose is sweet coffee, very appealing. Smooth mouthfeel, little carbonation. Medium bitterness, more coffee flavor. Really very impressive overall. Like drinking an iced coffee made the right way. Top notch offering in Tyranenaís "Brewers Gone Wild" series.

Bottle courtesy of brewblackhole...Really nice coffee aroma with hints of almonds. Black with a thick brown head. Full and smooth palate supports slightly roasted coffee tastes. This is very east to drink and tasty. Iím not the biggest fan of coffee brews--but this is one is done nicely.
