Pours dark mahogany with a small tan head. Aroma is all coffee. Taste is like an espresso with a kick. Nice coffee bitterness with a creamy mouth feel. A delicious porter.

12 oz bottle. Pours black with orange edges and a small khaki head. The aroma is strong espresso with a nice, deep roastiness, hints of molasses and beef, and a little bit of an earthy tone. The flavor is delicious fresh espresso. I’m impressed with how well the coffee element in this is done; strong, but clean. There are also notes of molasses and caramel in the background, behind some smoky char, leather, and earth. There are faint hops in the finish. Pretty good stuff.

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.

12oz bottle. Pours very dark brown\ black. Thin ring of tan foam. Aroma of green coffee beans. Not much scent of roasted malts or anything else just beans, maybe some peppers. Loads of roast in the flavor of the beer. Heavy coffee roast bitterness, burnt grain character. Well balanced. Creamy texture, thin bodied. An excellent Porter, at the first sip. I just can’t believe the intensity of the coffee bean aromas. (3409)

Strong coffee/chocolate flavors in a solid brew. This was great after a day touring Charleston and the environs. Nice head and good lacing, the undertones are strong and cut through just about anything. Not for the faint at heart.

Braudog (6837) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle. Typical American porter pour ... dark brownish, black, thin head. Aroma straight from the office coffee pot. Drinks with a stark, java-based bitterness, unusually delicious. Good example of a coffee-based dark beer. Love it. (#5017, 5/10/2013)

12 ounce while dining at Husk. Espresso/coffee. Roast. Chocolate. Not a very thick or heavy body, but bitterness shines. Decent.

nimbleprop (8761) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 3, 2015
On tap at the brewery, pours a murky, deep brown with some fluffy, off white head. Solid nose, nutty, toast, molasses, inviting coffee, a little caramel, a little mocha. Flavor has brown sugar and molasses, malt, toast, nutty coffee grounds, dark chocolate. Full, dry finish. Solid.

kramer (6905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2017
Can. Pours a clear brown bodied with a small fizzy brown head that left just a touch of lacing. The nose is pretty coffee forward with a nice base of chocolate and roast. The flavor is pretty nice as well, nice bright citrusy coffee up front with a finish that’s a bit sweeter and lingers with notes of chocolate and roast. Medium bodied with just a slight cling and soft fizzy carbonation. I like this one.

freekyp (2416) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 27, 2017
Nice round smooth body. A little slickness. Deep roast coffee aroma and flavor. Nice roast bean fade. Hops there just enough to balance. Some dark bakers chocolate.
