Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Pours jet black and thick with a sticky khaki colored head that leaves a nice coat of lacing. Luxuriant aroma with plenty of strong black coffee notes, some bittersweet chocolate. Flavor has some hints of licorice, a bit of creosote, strong espresso, bittersweet dark unsweetened chocolate and a back end of potting soil. Nice dry mouthfeel. Extremely enjoyable.

On draft at westover beer haus. Pours a hazy dark cola with a creamy tan head. Toasted malt aroma. Flavors of coffee and tobacco. Rich and flavorful. Braudog (6722) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle. Dark, dark brown, with little to no head. The aroma is awesome ... full of all kinds of roasty chocolate and coffee. This drinks like it should, too, for a coffee porter ... big, chewy notes of rich, nutty java. Delicious! (#4824, 11/18/2012) kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2017
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body with a one finger fizzy beige head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is really heavy on the coffee, which is a plus for me. Dark roast coffee, a slight citrus note, chocolate malt, a little roast. The flavor is all coffee up front, very rich and bold without being acrid at all. Some light chocolate malt, and maybe a touch of the dark wheat in the middle. Lingering coffee and cocoa. Medium bodied with a slight cling and soft fizzy carbonation. Nice beer, especially for this coffee lover.
