12 oz bottle - pours an opaque black with a decent tan head. Aroma of roasted coffee, toasted grain, and faint vanilla. Flavor is strong coffee with cream, vanilla, toasted grains, and malty sweetness. Finish is medium bodied, I enjoyed this coffee ported on a nice snowy day while stuck inside by the fireplace - perfect.

I got this as an extra from steelersxl, thanks a bunch man! Dark black, pretty standard appearance for the style, looks good. Smells like coffee grounds after the pot has been brewed. Strong! The flavor is actually better than I expected, very heavy coffee flavor but its not bad, its actually pretty good and I don;t like coffee beers (usually).

Slipstream (1985) - USA - JAN 23, 2010
Full and fine coffee aroma. Good, complex coffee flavor. Mostly sweet, but with some malt and hop tones too, and a touch of cheese. A good brew, and one of Wolavers’ better releases.

cprochak (590) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2010
12 oz. bottle from The CoffeeBar. Pours dark brown, bubbly tan head. Aroma of burnt charcoal, coffee, touch of chocolate. Decent carb, light bodied. Good sweet vanilla, then a fantastic dry burnt coffee roasty finish. Great coffee porter that left my tongue feeling like I just finished an iced americano.

Beerman6686 (4200) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 21, 2010
This poured a dark brown color with a thin beige head. Aroma was toffee, light coffee and some light chocolate notes. Flavor was lightly roasted malts, watery coffee, some sweet caramel/ toffee britsih porter notes too. Not bad, but nothing great either.

IN MY TIMES IVE HAD SEVERAL BEERS THAT HAVE INCORPORATED COFFEE IN THEM (EX: DOGFISH HEADS CHICORY STOUT, JAVA HEAD ECT.) AND BALANCED THEM WELL WITH OTHER FLAVORS YET STILL MANAGING TO BE A "BEER". AS FOR MY TAKE ON COFFEE, I DO ENJOY A CUP IN THE MORNING I LIKE GOOD COFFEE WITH NO SUGAR AND A LITTLE MILK. IM ALSO A FAN OF ORGANIC PRODUCTS, THESE FACTS WOULD LEAVE YOU TO BELIEVE THAT THIS "CERTIFIED ORGANIC COFFEE PORTER" WOULD BE RIGHT UP MY ALLY RIGHT? SO LETS TRY IT. FIRST OFF, THIS BEER SMELLS LIKE AN EMPTY CAN OF COFFEE GRINDS AND FOR SOME REASON IT REMINDS ME OF WHEN I WAS A KID, MAYBE BECAUSE WE ALWAYS WOULD KEEP THE CANS AROUND THE HOUSE AND USE THEM FOR STORAGE, FOR WHATEVER REASON THE AROMA IS VERY FAMILIAR. IT POURS A DARK BROWN ALMOST BLACK WITH NEARLY NO VISIBLE HEAD, AS FOR TASTE ITS STRAIGHT UP COFFEE WITH A SLIGHT CARBONATION, IT ACTUALLY TASTES LIKE ICED COFFEE, THERE IS NOT EVEN A HINT OF ANYTHING ELSE. I WONDER IF I HEAT IT UP AND ADD MILK IF IT WOULD TASTE LIKE REGULAR COFFEE...HMMM, LETS SEE...........WELL THAT WASNT THE GREATEST IDEA THE SLIGHT CARBONATION AND NEARLY INSIGNIFICANT ALCOHOL CONTENT CURDLED THE MILK.....ANYWAY, ALTHOUGH I HAVE A HARD TIME CALLING THIS A BEER I CAN SAY THIS ICED COFFEE IS PRETTY GOOD

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 15, 2010
12 oz - The Wine Source. Deep brown, creamy tan head. Warmed wet coffee ground aromas ride soft swirls of toasted vanilla and caramel. Fresh roasted coffee flavors are well balanced on a foundation of sweet vanilla cream and dark chocolate cocoa. Light to medium bodied, soft carbonation, bittersweet coffee finish. A nice session beer to get your coffee fix on

emacgee (3966) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 13, 2010
Pours a dark copper brown that sits black with a one finger creamy light tan head. Nose shows coffee upfront, nice roast, some bakers chocolate, earthy hops and mild grain character. Flavor shows a good coffee and dark grain integration, roast, dark chocolate, crisp. Palate is cut a little by the coffee, not as robust as it could be.
