3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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).

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours like a thick cola... dark brown with lots of bubbles rising up (even minutes after pour). Not much of a head. Aromas are OK, chocolate and coffee, but seem a little underdone and unidirectional. Flavor is similar, just OK... coffee and chocolate flavors are strong, mouthfeel is pretty syrupy, and there is a little too much sweetness for my tastes.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle [12oz]. Pours a deep ruby, almost dark brown, with an average size frothy light-brown head. Slightly mild aroma of roasted malt, a hint of smoke and lots of coffee. Flavour is roasted malt and coffee, a hint of smoke and some lactic notes. Slightly dry, roasty finish. Didn’t really get much vanilla, if any, in the aroma or flavour. Thin to average bodied. It’s fine, I didn’t love it but it was OK.
