12 oz bottle from Jonathan Ron. Pours a mostly solid black with deep brown edges and a large foamy beige head. Aroma starts off with strong roasted coffee beans, cola and earth. The body is full with an overdose of bubbly carbonation. The flavor is strong on earth and dirty coffee followed by some bitter green vegetables flavor. A good coffee Porter for the money but there are better ones out there but it will cost you. psuCE03 (135) - York, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2010
Opaque black with little to no head. Aroma of roasted coffee with a malty flavor and a hint of bitterness at the end. Pretty good porter but a little thin and not as hoppy as I would like. boto (2262) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - FEB 28, 2010
12oz. bottle: This one pours a fairly dark brown color. There was a small tan head on it that doesn’t linger or leave any lacing. Coffee aroma upfront, with lighter chocolate and roasty notes. Coffee upfront to the taste, but not overpowering. Roasted malts and some chocolate also. Medium to lighter body. A touch of dryness. This is a pretty decent brew!

12oz bottle from MrChopin - thanks, Kevin! Nice pour, lively dark brown with fairly heavy carbonation and a nice foamy top. Aroma is initially nice deep roasted coffee and grain, but dissipates a bit quickly. Body could be more substantial. And the flavor was a bit disappointing as well, with a quick jolt of dark malts and coffee followed by a rapid degeneration and a watery finish.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with little head and mild aromas of toasty darkness. Flavor is chocolatey and sweet dark fruit. Finish is pretty sweet with just a touch of dark bitter chocolate. Oddly, it doesn’t seem to have much of a coffee edge to it. NJBeerman013 (1054) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - FEB 21, 2010
Bottle. Pours opaque black with a tan head. Nice coffee note, medium body, smooth creamy finish. alobar (3885) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2010
Dark brown color with a thin off-white head. Excellent lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, and some chocolate. Flavor is largely coffee with balanced support of roasted malts, chocolate with just a touch of carbonation. Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2010
This poured a arker brown color with a beige head. Aroma was medium roasted coffee, some caramel, and some sweet maltiness. Flavor was nicely roasted coffee, not burnt though, some chocolate, and other grainy roasty notes. Pretty good beer. BigMike (46) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2010
Pours black with no light coming through and a one finger head thats thin and disappears quickly.
This has the greatest coffee smell of any beer i’ve ever had. it literally smells like i just ground up some fresh coffee beans and put them in this pint glass. Its a beautiful thing. A slight touch of chocolate but over all its all coffee.
Great coffee flavor. Theres not much else but coffee going on here and i’m ok with that.
Mouthfeel is a bit thin. Somewhat watery but smooth and light moderate carbonation.
Drinkability is pretty good if you’re a coffee lover like myself. This one could use just a bit more substance. I thought it was a little thin. Smell is right on and flavor is pretty good but it could use a bit more body. I have it say it’s a lot better then the java head stout i had last week.
