As a lover of coffee and a lover of beer, I usually avoid mixing the two. However, this is a great beer. A little sweet but a nice way to shake up a night of drinking IPAs.

On tap (!) at Whole Foods in the Time Warner Center, NYC. I wasn’t supposed to be there. I think I was supposed to be somewhere else. I had two of these and walking out of Whole Foods Market with a prominent buzz is like a strange early morning dream.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2013 Poring this the beer appears dark, but light does shine through the glass making the brews complexion dark ruby brown. It has a tall tan foamy head that soon dissipates. Beer smells strongly of coffee, a little vanilla, and some sweet hops. Taste like dark coffee, as opposed to other Coffee porters their is no milk or sugar added here. The vanilla is very slight and nice. Seems to have a decent hop presence that mixes in with the bitter coffee flavor. Pretty light in termâ€™s of body, it is not a thick porter. Drinks well. -Fish!

Had on tap at T.I.T.S., Cambridge, 7:23 pm for $5.50. Not bad. To pint it pours a purplish-mauve dark charcoal brown with a trim off-white head not even a fingernail in length. Aromas of kilned malt, coffee beans, molasses, and sea salt -- straight up. Tastes the same. A little earthiness detected by swallow. Coffee extremely prominent.

Cola brown, ruby red pour. Nice coffee aromas. Head is gone almost instantly. Very thin mouthfeel, but very coffee forward. Body is very light. Good taste, less filling. Meh.

poured from a bottle into an english pint. dark brown pour with a small light brown head. smells major coffee dominant, and that’s about it. taste is also mostly coffee with some mild hop grassiness. chocolate in the background too. pretty clean porter. a little thin on the mouthfeel. watery? it is tasty but kinda blah. didnt have high expectations for it, but it falls a bit flat still.

12 ounce. Nice looking pour. Creamy and chocolate. Some roast. A bit fizzy in the body, but overall, pretty nice.

Nice strong coffee flavor and good mouthfeel but not a whole lot else. Solid but unspectacular.
