Draft at the brewpub. Black and lighter around the edges. Foamy tan head. Aroma is chocolate and roasty. Coffee, roast malt, and some hop bitterness. mwbrady12 (469) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Strong aroma and tempting appearance leads to a more mild than expected taste and simple mouthfeel.

Originally reviewed: 1/14/10. Another of the offerings I had at the brewpub the other night. Came out a dark black with a bit of light around the edges. Small tan head capped it off. Sip rings and lace present. Scents of coffee, milk chocolate, and dark breads.
Another full-bodied beer here. I like the depth of this. This is definitely a more coffee-forward beer. Flavors of espresso, pumpernickel bread, and graham crackers. This was my favorite offering of the night I think. Well done! GnarlyGnome (673) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2012
Draft, sampler: a tad boring, pours dark brown with a tasty looking tan head. It smells chocolaty, and roasty, but leaves you wishing for it in the flavor. edgallow (4705) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Draft sampler pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate and a hint of spice. Taste is much of the same.

Draft. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Roasted malty aroma with fresh coffee and light dark chocolate. The flavor has dark chocolate sweetness, roasted malts, and coffee. Good stuff. hellbilly (3306) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - OCT 19, 2011

Draft. Murky brown color, tan head. Aroma of chocolate and light spice. Taste is similar. More of a stout than a porter. Braudog (6945) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Draft at the Coxe location. Standard brewpub porter visuals. Good flavor with bitter chocolate, roast and cream all making a showing of it. Among the ones I’d choose on a return. (#4298, 10/5/2011) Jow (4215) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2011
