Bottle at RBSG. Look and aroma is pretty much the same as the rest of the series. Taste brings the coffee, very lightly. Still sweet, a bit lighter on the back end. DSG (15035) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 22, 2017

500 ml bottle poured into a snifter. The beer is a near black with a khaki head of foam. The aroma has roasty coffee notes and big vanilla bean. Bitter and roasty taste. Thick mouthfeel, almost chewy. Moderate carbonation. Overall very good beer, but the coffee has fallen off a little bit. RobertDale (6650) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - DEC 13, 2016
500 ml. bottle. Pours black with an average tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and bourbon. Taste is coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, and roasted malt. Nice. SG111 (1931) - New York, USA - JUL 24, 2016
Tap at the source. Pours black, tan head. Aroma is sort of cold roasted coffee, chocolate, vanilla, smoke. Not much bourbon. But still good. Sort of a sweet fruit note, almost like jam but smokey. Flavor is smokey, roasted malt, coffee. Not much bourbon. Still very enjoyable.

Bottle from March 15. Coffee seems to have faded quite a bit. Poured a dark brown color with thin sudsy tan head. Aroma of oak, vanilla, chocolate, and coffee. Flavor was chocolate up front, coffee was there, but not overly present, vanilla, hints of oak and spirits. Full body, creamy texture, average carbonation, and a slight alcohol burn to finish. mathieuc (4000) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 3, 2016
Pours a dark dark brown with a beige rim that leaves low lacing. Nose is a nice mix of coffee and chocolate. Taste is of chocolate and coffee and while pretty sweet, not too sweet. Full body, medium carbonation and a rich/dense mouthfeel. Alcohol is expertly hidden. Really nice! Minderbinder (3469) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2016
Pours black with low beige head. Some lacing. Aroma is of coffee, roasted malt, vanilla. Chocolate. Taste is of coffee, roasted malt, sugar, chocolate, alcohol. Palate: Full bodied. Soft-medium carbonation. Sticky on the lips. Overall: Quite nice. Heavy, sweet. Nice malt / coffee features. tom10101 (6195) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2016
Bottle (500 ml) shared at tasting. Dark reddish mahogany-brown with a small beige head leaving little lacing. Aroma is of coffee, strong caramel malts, roasted malts, bourbon, vanilla, vegetal notes but not in a bad way as well as a bit of a nutty presence. Taste isn’t too sweet even though there’s a good malt depth as well as a good amount of caramel/molasses and bourbon. Coffee is there and less vegetal than nose, there’s interesting earthy/mineral notes and chocolatey notes. Medium to full body. Moderate carbonation. Mildly liquorous mouthfeel. Nice alcohol warmth. Well balanced. Good BBA Coffee Porter. czar (9250) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 1, 2016
pours unclear very dark brown, bordeaux tint, with a small reviving light beige cap offering some retention and lacing. dense roasted caramel maltiness, tons of roasted avelines, smooth yet strong coffee - city roast; tasty bourbon - never overwhelming, salty caramel, minerals. low carbonation, full body; warming, smooth and drying spicy-coffee finish. very complex maltiness - burnt caramel and chocolate topped with maple bourbon solids/pieces. excellent!
