$5.75 bomber from Gag Jr's Liquor Shop in New Haven. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Nice aroma of coffee, sweet vanilla, cream. Flavor is smooth - very smooth in fact. Coffee, vanilla, cream. Not sweet. Very solid. Excellent purchase, especially for the price. TEJA (3348) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2017
Bottle @ omhper, thanks.
Thin grey head.
Coffee totally dominate the aroma.
Big coffee taste with a dry finish.
If I would want to drink a coffee, I order coffee, not beer. pharmerbill (5) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 26, 2017 does not count
Interesting brew with a good build up but it lacked living up to its extremely promising potential. It should have been much better than it actually was.

Black with a tall tan head. Aroma is coffee and roasted malts with some vanilla and light earth tones. Medium creamy body. Flavor follows the aroma with a higher amount of noticeable vanilla, but not annoyingly so- this is not a vanilla porter, thankfully. Good balance of sweetness with coffee. jrodooo5 (1749) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - JUN 30, 2017
A rather nice porter that isn’t over the top but doesn’t disappoint in any way either. Light coffee roast in both the aroma & throughout the taste. Has a pretty soft mouthfeel & overall is quite good!

Enjoyed on tap at Thirsty First in Lowell, MA while on a tour, unfortunately didn’t take tasting notes while I had this, but I remember this being very good, dry, and robust. Would have again. shawnmurphy (667) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - MAY 3, 2017
On tap at Barley House in North Hampton, New Hampshire. Pours opaque black with lacing. Aroma and flavor: caramel, coffee, licorice. Mouthfeel: light-bodied, watery. Quick3Beers (1513) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 3, 2017
Pours a nice brown black from a tap, aroma of light roasted aciic coffee beans is kind of washed out a bit in the mouth, a bit of nuts or chicory or something adding a not unpleasant non-coffee bitterness. Good beer.
