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

Pours brownish black, fizzy tan head from the bottle, thanks to James. Aroma has notes of coffee, dark fruit, some roast, with a touch of caramel. Taste is big coffee, some chocolate and toffee notes, finishing roasted and bitter. The carb level, however, was so over the top it made it taste like acidic coffee. Good, but would be much better with a tad less carbonation.

BillWyce (1068) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2011
Poured from the bottle a deep brown-black with a dark tan head of nice size. Aroma is, as youd expect, coffee, with a caramel note mixed in. Palate is nicely balanced with medium body. A very nice strong coffee taste with a mild caramel or toffee note in the finish. A fall/winter seasonal worth finding.

Capa (3187) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - FEB 17, 2011
Dark with a ring of beige head. Roasted toasted malts, coffee, biscuits, light chocolate aroma. Creamy body. Flavor is full of toasted biscuit, roast malts, coffee, caramel, chocolate. Really nice beer- really nice. Not the run of the mill porter. Super tasty and highly drinkable.

Bottle courtesy of jtclockwork. Pours dark brown with a large tan head. Smells of light roast, earthy, metallic. Tastes lemony and bitter with some roasty hints and coffee on the finish.

Nice looking black beer with a thin but long lasting chocolate head. The aroma is of mild coffee, with chocolate, roasted and toasted malts. The taste is balanced, and the coffee is subtle. However, it leaves something to be desired...I just dont know what..

Thanks to daknole. Bottle pours brown with a khaki head. Aroma smells like a bag of green coffee and black olives, with a touch of ash. Flavor shows the same with additional hints of chocolate, and light roast.

daknole (11035) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 19, 2011
Dark brown, tons of fluffy tan head. Aroma is plastic and coffee. Flavor is roasty, coffee, and on its way to getting sour. Odd but good.

joeyplush (648) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2011
Gift from Armed. Slowly working my way through the Philly roster. This beer was decent - although I found the aroma to be yeasty and a bit funky. Taste is smooth and creamy like a lightly sweetened cup of coffee cut with cream. Lingers nicely on the palate with a slight coffee bitterness but not too much.

Coffee and chocolate on the aroma. Dark murky brown in color with no head. the chocolate and coffee continue in the taste...a bit thin. Notes: cask

Probably one of the best coffee porters Ive tried: Coffee and hops provide two great types of bitter with some malt underlying to balance out the profile. Just enough coffee taste (and the right kind too, not the cheap coffee taste in others). Wonderful and one of the best of its kind.
