Sample at GABF 2014. Comes almost black with a decent tan head. Aroma of coffee, malt, and chocolate. Taste is coffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate, and a bit of alcohol. Pretty good. jsmanigold (127) - Texas, USA - OCT 4, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2014 Nice and dark. This coffee porter has a nice smooth blend of chocolate malt and coffee with a little spice that comes across on the tongue. It also feels silky on the tongue. I would definitely drink again. slowrunner77 (12594) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 5, 2014
"Not too shabby. Medium to full bodied and fairly smooth. ABV provides stregth of flavor but little heat. Lots of coffee and malted milk chocoldate up front with a low dose of bittering hops. Enjoyable fo sho." MetalNHopHead (2130) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Coffee porters are just a damn good idea. The dry, roasted sensations created by coffee are usually a killer match for the bittersweet characteristics of a good porter. Anubis does an excellent job at harnessing the properties of both beverages. The aroma has a nice mix of coffee and toasted malt. I would like to get more of the floral aroma of fresh coffee but I like the smell of earthy roast. Flavor is pretty deep, all considered. Coffee flavors are especially strong but you get some cocoa, too. I did, however, want a little more complexity. Anubis may not be the best Coffee porter out there, but I sure enjoyed drinking it.

A- Coffee, mocha, cocoa.
A- Black color, black liquid, tan head.
T- Coffee, mocha, bitter cocoa, robust, complex, rich, slightly malty.
P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, rich finish.
O- Wow, I was pleasantly surprised with this one. I think it’s fair to say that this is almost as good as FBS. Almost. The coffee really stands out and shines through and creates a very rich and robust flavor and aroma that is hard to beat. This may be slightly underrated if anything.

22oz bomber pours with a nice deep dark body that supports a near creamy mocha colored head. The aroma offers up dark roasted coffee, some molasses, a few crumbs of chocolate chip cookie and a dash of black licorice. The taste delivers similar notes like dark roasted coffee sweetened by malts and molasses. It then heads into mild earthy to spicy black licorice sort of maltiness into the finish. Tasty brew.

Bomber thanks to Andrew. Deep brown with a tan head. Minimal aroma. Thin and oddly boozy. tnkw01 (1789) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown in color with a tan head. Aroma is coffee with hints of chocolate and vanilla. Taste is a delicious vanilla mocha flavor. weihenweizen (4051) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - MAY 20, 2014
