Pours an opaque brownish-black from the bottle with thin tan head and moderate lacing. Aroma and taste are heavy of the coffee, slight roasted malt and toffee on the nose. Pretty good, nothing exceptional.

Pours a jet black with fluffy tan brown head. Nose and taste is all coffee in the front and a bit of a tart finish. Not bad at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle thanks to ygtbsm94 for fbw...thanks again. Pours a deep dark brown, nearly black color with large brown head. Aroma is roasty/coffee, sweet, chocolate malt. Big roasty flavor, up front, slightly astringent. Chocolate malt, and lactose like flavor follows. Listening to ACDC while I drink this of course.

Pitch black pour little bit of an orange hue with a thin off white head .... Aroma of bitter dark chocolate, mostly bitter dark roasted coffee, caramel malts ... Taste of dark bitter chocolate, roasted coffee, caramel malts and bitter hops .... Has a nice bitter hoppy bite on the backend very well represented on the roasted side thats for sure .... Finish is dry and bitter ... Body is thin but this is definitely a nice coffee porter
