Draft. Pours nearly black with a small creamy tan head. Aroma is coffee, roast, chocolate a touch of an earthy hoppiness. Flavor is sweet and roasty, again plenty of coffee and chocolate, dark chocolate with some bitterness in the finish. Medium to full creamy body and a soft carbonation. Very tasty.

This is a really great shelf beer for Porter/Stout enthusiasts. Donít know why it doesnít get more love but nice coffee aroma that pours thick and dark. Taste is nice coffee, with chocolate notes. Itís only seasonal but worth picking up a few of the 4 packs when you can. Great great great beer to grab when you donít 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.

Pours black with very little tan head. Aroma is roast malts. Nice medium body. Fresh coffee and roast malt profile is really good. More bitter than the average coffee stout, some piney hops.Good stuff.

Ooh la la. Great coffee influence on a solid porter, meaning each complements the otherís role in the taste profile. Part of a dependable line of shouts & porters from this brewer.

Dark pour with a beige head. Aroma is roasted malt and coffee. Taste is YUM! Coffee, roasted malt, oatmeal, creamy. Big, bold, long lasting flavor. OK lacing.

Bottle. Pours opaque black with creamy beige head. Aroma is heavy coffee and chocolate, medium roast, some earthiness, and some barrel character. Flavor echoes the nose and is coffee and chocolate dominant with some booze, vanilla sweetness, and oak. Slightly thinner than I expected with medium body and soft carbonation.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle, nice dark brown color, smooth creamy tan head. Coffee comes thru right away, roasted malt, just a hint of cocoa. Donít let me forget the oatmeal. A very silky smooth beer. I really enjoyed this beer. As a sidebar, I donít really like a beer after dinner but this one worked. Made a fine dessert. Try it!

Black pour with a one finger, creamy caramel brown head that has excellent retention and leaves some pretty nice lacing. Aroma is roast, sharp medium to dark roast coffee, roasted nuts, toasty granola and light grassy hops. Flavor is sweet chocolate, toffee nuts, medium roast coffee seemingly to the fruitier side of profiles, a little earth, roast, toasted grains and dark caramel. Medium to heavy body, creamy entry, creamy to goopy middle and thinner, still creamy, but drier finish. Light, blanketing and slightly too sharp carbonation, which is a bit to sharp for me. I can taste oatmeal clearly in my burps, but not nearly as well in the beer, that is weird.
