(draft @ Wagner Valley Brewing Company - Lodi, NY) Dark brown pour with a tan head. Roasted coffee aroma with some light chocolate and cream hint. Roasted coffee and chocolate malt flavor. A bit thin bodied but has the great taste of an iced mocha.

First rating in 4 years! Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Lightly roasted malts, medium sweetness, fresh brewed coffee, and a hint of vanilla. Lo lingering bitterness that occasionally comes with coffee beers. Good stuff.

12oz bottle. I worked for Wagner’s for two years. During my 2 years, I spent much time at the fabled "House," where general cacophony occurred nightly. Upon exploring the basement of The House, a few coworkers and myself discovered several bottles of beer, aged nearly 5 years. These bottles, and The House, had belonged to the owner of Wanger’s- legendary Bill Wagner. We drank these beers like little regard for history, and soon regretted it. These beers had aged like a cheap Parisian trollop. 1 of these lethal brews was enough to cause fall-down drunkenness. Nevertheless, we soldiered on...

Growler. Dark brown, near black with a small ring of brown head. Smells of bitter coffee roast (and lots of it), some sourness, and chocolate. Creamy, nutty body with coffee bitterness and oat flavours. Pretty solid though it thins out quickly towards the finish.

3fourths (9137) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 24, 2007
Sample from a bottle. Fresh, sharp vegetal espresso nose, really bright coffee in the aroma, and very rich smelling as well. Lightly pasty/empty texture, medium-to-light frothiness. Coffee flavors prevalent, with some light roast, if any, or maybe more of a burnt dark roasted coffee flavor, and I’m just thinking roast. The coffee is quite delicious – I love coffee stout – but it covers pretty much the entire ‘porter’ in this porter. Still a solid coffee beer.

Draft. Pours a dark brown core; light brown head with good lacing. Roasted coffee and dark chocolate in the aroma; hints of vanilla. Medium, well-roasted mouthfeel: plenty of roasted coffee and milk chocolate; slightly oily, inky viscosity; hints of toasted malts at the back end. Medium, coffee and cream finish.

sample at brewpub - delivers exactly what was promised, dark rasted malt flavors with a definite coffee finish. A new breakfast beer perhaps.

Growler brought back from the brewery. Very dark brown/black color, mocha head. Pleasant aroma of coffee beans, cocoa, roasted malt. When I first poured and the beer was pretty chilly the coffee came through a lot more in the finish. As it warmed a bit there was more of a powdered cocoa and the coffee subsided a bit. Medium bodied, pretty drinkable. Recommended. Hopefully they get this one out.
