UPDATED: MAR 30, 2013 Pours a jet black color with a finger length head that dissipates very quickly and leaves a thin ring of lacing around the edges. Smells of nice dark, bold, roasted coffee. Almost an earthy quality to it, but basically like smelling fresh coffee beans. As it warms, get more vanilla qualities. Taste starts very much like it smells: a bold coffee bean flavor, along with tons of roasted qualities and a hefty amount of bitterness as well. Then in the middle, the oatmeal silkiness shows through and smooths it out, along with some sweet vanilla qualities. Then the finish is a nice medley of the bold, roasted coffee bean flavors and the sweet, creamy vanilla notes. Has a pretty full body with a creamy, sticky mouthfeel. Definitely has some porter qualities to it, but is on the verge of a stout. This is right up there with their dirty old man, which is my favorite porter. Not as complex as the breakfast stout by Founders, but is still up there with it in my opinion. Tyranena knows how to do their porters.

Bottle. Dark brown pour with not much head. Aroma is rich chocolate and coffee. Flavour is malty chocolate, some coffee - not particularly roasty for a porter, and not as rich as expected for the ABV, but still good.

Wonderful beer from a brewery I?ve hitherto never heard of. Why doesn?t anyone talk about these guys? Lots of coffee and chocolate. Roast malt. Black pour with great mocha head and lacing. Thick consistency. Bitter finish with hint of caramel sweetness. Bottle.

This is a really great shelf beer for Porter/Stout enthusiasts. Don’t know why it doesn’t get more love but nice coffee aroma that pours thick and dark. Taste is nice coffee, with chocolate notes. It’s only seasonal but worth picking up a few of the 4 packs when you can. Great great great beer to grab when you don’t feel like opening a bomber or rare beer.

Pours pitch black with a large tan head. Smells strongly of coffee. Taste is bold coffee with hints of chocolate. Full-bodied with a smooth, silky texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Tyranena The Devil Made Me Do It finishes with a smooth coffee bitterness.
