This was a good porter, one of my favorites. This has a very strong coffee flavor, almost a little toffee as well. This is o ne of the only Kona beers I like. However, it was a little thin without the distinctive dry mouthfeel of most porters.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 11, 2007
Rich coffee aroma, followed by a more mochaish emphasis, also a little tobacco smoke, taste is surprisingly dry and thin,coffee and malt flavors are not very potent, hints of roastedness,and hop bitterness,aroma delivers more then taste

Very faint aroma; vaguely porter scented. Coffee flavor with a strange sour and metallic finish. Not a great porter.

thebaldwizard (1206) - Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Weak coffee and malt aroma. Very dark brown with a thin head. Medium palate. Strangely bitter coffee and some sort of vegetal component that I just didnt get at all.

thanks/sorry elgaucho (i stole this at DLD 07). it was actually something of a surprise because it had such a pure coffee flavor. aroma was just a normal porter, but then the flavor was really fresh, and it seemed like all the bitterness came directly from the roasted coffee. if i knew more about coffee varieties i could maybe say more, but as porters go i found this to be a welcome novelty.

EithCubes (5649) - New Jersey, USA - APR 21, 2007
Bottle. Black-ruby pour. Roast coffee nose, more coffee than roast, dry and bitter. Body is thick and malty, taste is of moderately sweet chocolate and roast beans. Light cream and plums. Tingly mf on an otherwise silken palate with a delicious mild coffee/choco aftertaste. A really nice blend, no flavor steps out of line. Very enjoyable. Thanks, Jake!

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2007 Six pack from my local BevMo: The darkest of browns with ruby highlights when held up to a flashlight and a generous fast fading tan head. Nose is Kona coffee. Flavor starts rich coffee followed by dark chocolate fading to a nutty taste and a long, light simi-dry burnt coffee finish. Medium bodied and silky with moderate carbonation.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 16, 2007
Thanks to the parents for bringing this one home - Deep brownish crimson, tan creamy head. Nose held earthy coffee tones and mild chocolate, with softer vanilla oat notes. Coffee flavors fade into textured notes of berry, chocolate, and hints of caramel. Ends with a slight burnt hoppy bitterness to pull together some balance. Light bodied, soft carbonation, and very drinkable. Tasty for sure...
