Travlr (26430) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - APR 3, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Eric at Churchkey, thanks! Almost a gusher, but not quite. Dark maroon brown color, massive brown head that settles to a tanned inverted nipple. Aroma of coffee grounds. Taste is coffee and cocoa. Not bad.

Tmoney99 (15130) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2013
Bottle. Poured dark brown color with an average tan frothy head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate roasted coffee and chocolate aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium sweet roasted coffee flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good coffee porter.

12 ounce bottle from House of 1000 Beers, New Kensington. Pours a dark brown color with a thin creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of well balanced coffee and chocolate with some mild roast and earth. The taste is bitter roast, bitter coffee, bitter chocolate, a mild ashy note, herbal hops and a creamy finish. Medium bodied, decent balance. Quite nice.

hopdog (13258) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2011
12 oz bottle. Brown pour with a very large sized off white head. Aromas of roast, burnt malts, coffee, and some earth. Same burnt tastes, coffee, lighter chocolate, and roasty. Thinner.

Glad to be the statistics clarifier for this, my cherry popper from Full Pint. Pours turbid deep brownish black with 1-finger tan head. Nose is Alpha Klausy; rich choc malt, cacao, big piney hops. Tastes extremely piney and resiny hoppy, with roasty choc malt, coffee, a rich palate, some Bells java notes, and a super hoppy finish. The hops overtake the coffee here, and it finishes astringent, but this one isn’t too shabby.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of LIVEFAST. Another cool bonus from Alan! Thanks! Deep brown appearance with a brown head. Roasty, acidic, coffee, deep chocolate malty aroma. Roasty dark chocolate malty, acidic coffee flavor leads to a tangy tart fruitiness. Light nuttiness. The coffee flavor is a little messed up which kind of ruins the beer. I’d like to try it again if they get this figured out.

12oz bottle, shared by Jay. Best by July 2013. Clear dark brown color. Thin off-white head. Leaves nice lace. Good roasty coffee nose. Medium body. Lighter, crisp carbonation. Hint of chocolate. Sweet taste, light bitter. The body could use a bit of boistering, a bit thinner than I like, but then again, it’s a porter, not a stout.. Awesome aroma, OK texture, nice coffee aftertaste. Satisfies on delivering the coffee, without being too heavy.

douglas88 (9797) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 13, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Pours a deep black color with a medium grey head. A smooth roast and coffee nose. The flavor is good: dark fruit, coffee, roast, some ash. Very clean. Nice.

b3shine (9270) - Indiana, USA - SEP 12, 2012
Draft to pint. Looks good; pitch black with beige head that slowly dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; malt and coffee. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Strong, bitter coffee flavor, but not unpleasantly so (but I’m a coffee drinker). A decent example of the style.

FROTHINGSLOSH (8291) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 22, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2012 Sampled on draft at the Rivertowne Pub this beer poured thick and black with a large brown head that lingered. The aroma was sweet and malty with moderate notes of cocoa and coffee. The flavor was sweet cocoa, vanilla and coffee with a toasty and roasty malt undertone. The finish was long and toasty with lingering cocoa and coffee. Fairly full bodied and smooth. Well done.
