1/18/2014 and 1/27/2014: Left Hand Beer Week Sauce... This beer is straight up coffee and roasted malt, but it’s more refined that that... Aroma is coffee along with some chocolate candy. Coffee definitely dominates at first, but it isn’t just COFFEE. As the beer breathes and warms, nutty and roasted malt, chocolate candy, caramel, and vanilla undertones come through; earthy, herbal finish pairs nicely with the roastiness. This beer doesn’t have a big, thick body behind it, but the carbonation isn’t too high and I think that really helps make this beer work; overall, this beer is DELICIOUS and I REALLY enjoyed it. Draught (snifter and growler fill) at Flipdaddy’s in Mason, Ohio. Rating #79 for this beer. Hophaze (192) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - JAN 26, 2014

Aroma: The nose is pretty much all coffee and roasted malts
Appearance: Pours a dark brown color with a creamy light brown head and full lace
Flavor: The taste is much the same, lots of roasted coffee
Palate: The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, drinks pretty easily
This is a nice, one-dimensional coffee porter. It is pretty much exactly what you think you are getting going in, which is not a bad thing at all.
Tap at brewery. Pours dark brown with fizzy tan head. Aroma is roasted and chocolate malts, coffee, earthy notes, and faint vanilla. Flavor is dry roast malts forward, smooth coffee notes, light earthy and chocolate bitterness, and faint dark fruit esters; dry roast finish.

Palme (4856) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2014
On tap @ Rattle N Hum. As good as black in the glass this and it has a nice medium sized brown and kinda sidesticking head. Oh, my this is a coffee infused aroma. Reminds me if the famous Coffee Bender. Like nosing a fresh grounded box of coffee. A bit one dimensional perhaps, but I really love fresh grounded coffee. It goes in the taste also. A bit light and the carbonation is one what soft, but my oh my that fresh coffee is amazing. Dark a bit toasted and just really tasty. Dark some chocolate paper in the aftertaste. Good! 13.06.2013 Drake (14332) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 1, 2014
