tmoreau (2325) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Approx. 2 year cellared 12 oz. bottle, shared and poured to snifters, showing a black/brown hue, with some ruby highlighting, a modest layer of tan head foam, and spots & strands of lacing. The nose started with a bit of salty soy, then roasted notes, cocoa, a little syrupy sweetness, molasses, coffee, and a hint of earthy peat on the back. Medium bodied, the texture was a little watery, with soft carbonation, a conglomeration of the aroma notes with no one standing out, and a slightly tart edge to the finish. Not bad, but didnít hold up to the cellaring as I would have liked, and lost most of the oatmeal influence.

Bottle from Discount Liquors in Milwaukee. Served alongside the barrel-aged version. Dark brown body with a small beige head. Lovely aroma, consisting of rich coffee, freshly ground coffee beans, bready malts, roast, chocolate - everything youíd expect from reading the label. Nice flavor. Oats and coffee play so well together. Super smooth while maintaining a bold and assertive coffee presence throughout. A fine example of a coffee porter / stout.

Pours a dark black color with tan head. Coffee, roasted malt, and some cocoa on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more coffee.

Damico (2512) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Pours thick dark rich coffee with a darker beige head. Aroma is amazing, big coffee with some sweet mocha and vanilla. Flavor brings coffee and roasted bitter malts on a smooth creamy body.

12 ounce bottle. Pours almost black with a decent tan head. Aroma of malt, coffee, and chocolate. Taste is roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, and some alcohol. Oats give it a somewhat creamy body. Nice.

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

normalbeerguy (3) - Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2014 does not count
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.
