ABUSEDGOAT (2653) - California, USA - FEB 13, 2006
Dark reddish brown body (black) with a large tan head. Aroma is roasted coffee and a hint of chocolate. Flavor is the same, a decent porter I guess. The coffee quality couldnt even come remotely close to matching Peche Mortel. A solid offering, but nothing to write home about.

Appears black with a light tan head that slowly fades. Scattered lacing is left around the glass. Smell is of light coffee with some lactose sugar standing out with that creamy aroma. Taste is of the same aromas with a pleasant sweet, sugary, coffee enhanced flavor. Mouthfeel is slightly thin with the bitterness winning out over the creamy coffee richness.

22oz bottle shared courtesy of weeare138. Poured a medium and clear brownish color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of coffee grounds, lactose, and some chocolate. Tastes of lighter coffee, chocolate and roasted malts.

Pours dark brown. I didnt find the aroma to be overwhelmingly coffee- but the aftertaste definitely is. I would drink this one again. Some sweet caramel-like undertones.

beerbill (3605) - Laurel, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2006
Bottle. Pours a very dark reddish brown with a light mocha colored head. Aroma is overwhelmingly coffee. Flavor is less dominated by the coffee, but still very much in the forefront. Strong bitterness, which I guess comes from the beans. Also some roasted malt flavors present. Chewy mouthfeel. I wonder if they make a decaf version?!

Coffee extract? Well maybe thats the way to go as my notes say "lots of fresh coffee, holy shit!" This was a great drinkable porter with heavy coffee aroma and flavor. Nice!

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - DEC 7, 2005
Bottle. Pours deep ruby-black with khaki head. A crisp coffee aroma dominates, with some sweet malt and wood. The flavor is light malt, quite a bit of earthy hops, coffee, brown sugar, and semi-sweet chocolate. I actually like this quite a bit... good for casual drinking. Of course, I really like coffee, too.

dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 7, 2005
Brown in color with a small off-white head. Aroma of mild fruit,coffee and roasted malt. Flavor is bitter,roasty,coffee like yet with noit as much balance as others. A good beer, even though Im not a coffee fan.

Mads Langtved (2244) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2005
Cask condioned GBBF 2005: Very roasted, sweet and with loads of coffee. Quite heavy porter, in spite of the low ABV. Interesting beer.

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2005
I liked their regular porter. I thought this would better. I was wrong. Massive bitter, overroasted, over-extracted coffee, thick, grainy, chewy, yucky. Couldnt finish the bottle.
