Panzuriel (2138) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Thunderstruck pours a rich deep brown black with a thin mocha head. Nose is rich nutty roast coffee with hints of carmelized brown sugar. Taste is a slightly dry coffee tasting roasty rich deep and nutty goodness. body is just a hair shy of silky and a bit bubbly. finishes with good bitters and black coffee. nice rich coffee flavored beer.

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.

Had a pint at WOB in Destin. I have this right behind their Black Watch as my 2nd favorite beer from Highland. A robust coffee forward porter.

Pours black with brown head. Has a coffee and roasted malt aroma. A coffee, chocolate, and roasted malt. A lingering coffee and roasted malt aftertaste.

Dark brown in color, with thick, light brown head. Hints of raisins and coffee beans in the aroma. Less bitter than expected, despite its strong coffee taste.

Doofgoblin (513) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - NOV 21, 2016
Aroma is like fresh coffee. Taste is more coffee with a light toasty malt underbelly. Some carbonation, but overall its a light bodied brew with lots of coffee, lots.

Delicious coffee porter with deep, roasty veins of chocolate and java. Mild herbal bitterness on the finish. Damn tasty.

Pours a dark brown color with a tan head. Aroma is pretty good. Roasted malts and chocolate with a lot of coffee. Flavor is also mostly coffee with some roasted malts and chocolate. Pretty impressed with this brew.

6 Jan 2015, bottle. Black. Nose is really big, bitter, dark espresso. Med body and moderately fizzy. Tastes like dark chocolate with hints of chili pepper. Faintly acidic. Nice enough.
