COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Joe is not your average beer. This ale is brewed with locally-roasted, fair trade coffee, Dark Munich and chocolate malts which combine to create a well-balanced, flavorful Porter with a fresh roasted coffee aroma. Good from the first drop. We use 2.5 pounds of coffee in each barrel of this robust porter. Available in both bottles and kegs for a limited time each fall and winter. 5% ALC/VOL

Ehhh. Pours reddish brown. Aroma is mostly bitter chocolate with some coffee. Rather thin in mouth with some coffee notes. Finishes dry / tart bitters.

Bottle at Tattooed Mom. Dark copper black but not opaque. Fizzy white head that disappears quickly. Decent strong coffee flavor with a juicy malt backbone. Raisins. Plums. Burnt toast. Orange peels. Tootsie Rolls. More interesting coffee beer than most.

ben4321 (6067) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from Oak Tree, 12/6/12

Aroma: The nose has lots of roasted coffee, with some chocolate malts, and a little earth
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a small beige head that leaves scattered lace
Flavor: The taste is much the same as the nose, it is mostly roasted coffee, with a lightly bitter finish
Palate: Medium bodied, though a touch watery, with average-plus carbonation, and a light dry finish
Overall Impression: This is not a bad beer at all. The coffee presence works pretty well, and the beer itself works pretty well overall. Its nothing stellar, but I found it quite drinkable, and fairly well made.

Pours a nice dark color into a tullip glas from a 12 ounce bottle. Aroma is dry of coffee, roasted malt, hops. Flavor is initially bitter with a dry flavor and some roasted malt, mildly creamy with the tingle of carbonation. Body is medium overall no sour taste at all. Carbonation may be above average. Overall a solid beer.

12oz bottle pours a watery, but mostly opaque black with one ring of beige head. Nose of mild coffee, brown sugar, malt, a little brown bread. Flavor is the same, Little nutty, coffee, brown sugar, malt, bread. Medium bodied, dry finish. Neither the base beer nor the coffee are exceptional, but this is a decent little coffee porter.

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Deep brown in color, similar to that of coffee. A hard pour only produced a thin, small head. The head was tan in color and faded away rather quickly leaving behind little to no lacing. The aroma was, of course, that of black coffee and sutle roasted malts. Taste is of black coffee and roasted malts. Leans more to the coffee then malts. Mouthfeel was thin with some bitter dryness towards the end. The body was smooth. A good beer with good flavor. Body seems a bit thin for a porter.

keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Poured into an English pint glass from a 12 ounce bottle undated.

A: Very dark opaque brown with a towering foamy, rocky, tan head that overflowed from my glass despite a mild pour.

S: Faint coffee and a slightly sweet faint lactose.

T: Coffee through and through, slight sweetness coming through but mostly rather dry.

M: Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation.

O: Wouldnt buy this again, but its true to its name. Cheap enough to be worth trying.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2012 Bottle. Aroma of heavy malts of coffee and chocolate. Very bitter coffee taste. Frothy and heavy carbonation. Tastes like a milkshake.

This was excellent as a cask gravity pour. Soft carbonation, lots of interplay and although not in the description, the batch I had seemed smoky and rich with strong coffee. Excellent.
