This is my first try at this type of beer but it definitely was enjoyable. First had it on draft at a local oyster roast so temperature may have something to do with the aroma and overall taste. Also bought a 6 pack at the local grocery store and the taste was not as pronounced as the draft. Coffee lover so this was right up my alley with the expresso. icehawk (876) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2012
Some coffee aroma. Mouthfeel is flat and fairly thin bodied for a porter. Not much coffee taste compared to other coffee based beers. jtclockwork (18159) - , New Jersey, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Bottle. Pours black. Light beige head. Nose/taste of fresh coffee beans, espresso, cocoa and vanilla. Body is a little on the thin side. Finishes with fresh coffee beans and burnt black malt. williamherbert (1544) - Syracuse, New York, USA - AUG 5, 2011
The aroma is chocolate cookie dusting. Hazelnut and coffee grounds. Sweet caramel.
The appearance is glassy reddish-brown. Thin-bodied, not too substantial.
The flavor is like when coffee grounds fall into the mug. A little nutty, but with a sweet toffee undertone. It’s sweet with some cold coffee elements.
The palate is buttery and oily. Similar to a brown ale. Drinkable but much sweeter than expected. Iced coffee. beernovice39 (3269) - Idaho, USA - JUL 11, 2011
Draft at Closed for Business. Dark red/brown with a thin tan head. Scent of coffee. Taste is roasted malt, coffee and chocolate.

Man this is a very watery beer, all you taste is burnt roasted coffee. The coffee is pretty tasty but there is no more flavors going on argo0 (14128) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 23, 2011
12oz bottle. Minimal beige head atop cola dark brown body. Aroma is moderately sweet, coffee/espresso, light milk chocolate. Taste is moderately sweet, coffee/roast, some milk/bittersweet chocolate, light nut. Light-medium body, light creamy, low carbonation. oobawa (2012) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 20, 2011
Palmetto makes a tasty coffee porter, a beer I find quite underrated in its home town. Espresso Porter strikes a solid balance between English porter and coffee, neither sweet and fruity nor acidic and burnt-tasting. A little more body would bolster the beer, but other than that, there’s not much to complain about. Plus, this beer makes a perfect way to start someone’s transition from coffee-drinker to dark beer-drinker. pushkinwow (3006) - Ottawa, CANADA - MAR 4, 2011
12 oz bottle, thanks to Steve! Pours a thin black with a tan head that settles to a clear pour with no lacing. Caramel, coffee, and chocolate on the nose, very thin-bodied but cloying, dry on the finish with some sweetness. A simple coffee porter, not bad but not something I would search out for.

A dark reddish brown porter with a thick moka head. In aroma, loads of coffee grinds over caramel malts. In mouth, a smooth coffeee porter with nice herbal hops, coffee grinds, quite nice. On tap at Brewvival, Feb. 26 2011.
