3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from 4 pack. Pours a nearly jet black with tannish head that settled and dissipates. Aroma is coffee and a burnt roast malt. Taste is interesting mix of coffee, chocolate, toffee and slight oatmeal notes. A nice balance between the bitterness of coffee beans and the sweetness of roast malt chocolate. A very good porter.

Decent coffee beer, but not among the elite class for this category. A bit watery, but still a good beer

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours inky black out of the bottle with a 1/4" of frothy foam on top. Smells of coffee and roasted malt. tastes primarily of coffee (go figure) with hints of chocolate, with some hop flavor. As flavor fades the mouth is overtaken by coffee bitterness. overall a good beer- a bit thin for my liking but then it probably would have been a stout.

This one poured a black as night color with a beige head. Aroma was of lots and lots of fresh coffee, some grain, roasted malt and dark chocolate. Flavor was again huge coffee, but not coffeee bitterness at all, incredibly smooth and just mouth watering stuff.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz. bottle. Full-on roasty coffee aroma, dark and rich with hints of cocoa, raisin and molasses. Murky dark brown/black in color with a very thin, fading head. Flavor profile is full of dark malt, chocolate and dark, roasty coffee, with a very mild background sweetness to nicely balance out the dry, bitter malts and earthy hop character, some lingering fudgy chocolate, smoke and roast at the finish. Very low in effervescence with a mostly dry yet lightly coating mouthfeel and a full body. Quite flavorful and tasty.

Deep rich black color with short tan head. Nose is a pleasant mix of fresh coffee beans and chocolate malt. The oatmeal gives a nice full body and complements the flavors really well. A nice creamy, silky texture, very closely resembling a milk consistency.

Bottle. Pours a dark black with no head. Aroma is pure fresh roasted espresso coffee, and fresh ground coffee grinds. Taste is pure coffee and espresso, flavorful with subtle sweetness and chocolate.
