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.

Some coffee aroma. Mouthfeel is flat and fairly thin bodied for a porter. Not much coffee taste compared to other coffee based beers.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Lubiere (14550) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 2, 2011
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.
