On tap at Pizza Port OB. Dark brown color, with a light white ring of head. Awesome coffee aroma, with roasted beans and malt. Coffee and chocolate flavors dominate throughout the flavor. The coffee is very well balanced throughout the beer, and the acidity is not overpowering as in other coffee stouts. Tasty chocolate base complements the coffee well.
Can. Pours clear reddish mahogany, large ceamy tan head, dissipates slowly, good lacing. Aroma is ashtray, coffee, lactose, mocha. Flavor is light plus sweet, light plus bitter. Fullish body, soft mouthfeel. rick_91709 (502) - USA - AUG 14, 2017

Sampled from the tap at the OB location. Pours a deep, dark brown with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of coffee with sweet dark grains and some roasted malts underlying. Flavor combines coffee and roasted malts well with dark grains and a hint of sweetness supporting. hallinghansen (3420) - Odense SV, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2017

From notes. Enjoyed at Corbet’s house warming on April 23.16 oz can. The pour is a nice darker black with a thick light khaki colored head and a few spots of lace as it froths down to a film and thick ring. The aroma is really malty and roasty. There is a pretty good coffee going on, but the chocolate and a light bitterness slowly move through. This is definitely not as good as I thought it would be. It’s just a little messy with the chocolate and the coffee fighting the roast. The flavor is much of the same. There is a sharpness of alcohol on it with a light chocolate and the roasty malt. It’s bitter, but decent. The mouth feel is a touch light with a soft carbonation and a lingeringly bitter chocolate and coffee on the finish. There is a little more roasted malt and alcohol than I’d like to see. Not awful. snoworsummer (6071) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 18, 2017
UPDATED: APR 18, 2017 Can from the OB brewery. Pours very dark brown with a thin, fizzy head. Tastes like roasted malt, smokey wood, burnt toast, and roasted coffee. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like dark chocolate malt, roasted, smokey wood, burnt toast, and light ash. jc1762 (1609) - Washington DC, USA - APR 2, 2017
Can from a trade into a wine galss showing pitch black with half a finger of latte colored foam.
The nose shows a lot of mocha, coffee, and light bacon notes.
The palate is thick but not fully foamy with respect to carbonation. Flavors of dark coffee and dark chocolate. Finish is mocha and caramel. Nice. derA (398) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 22, 2017
tap @ tap & bottle: hm.. Well, the title and description are not lying, this is one coffee-heavy imperial porter. For me, the green coffee flavor, often prevalent in cold brew that has been soaked for a long time, is just overpowering on the nose. The typical porter or imperial porter notes of caramel and roasted malts are undetectable behind the huge wall of soaked coffee. The taste is actually quite nice and very much like I would expect from the style, ample sweetness but also a little bit of balancing bitterness and astringency. On the aftertaste, the coldbrew starts to mingle in with the more malt-based aromas of caramel and toffee but that’s a little too late for me. I really wished that I would like this one better.

On tap at Harry’s Hofbrau. Pours black with limited brown head. Great coffee aroma and flavor. Rich and robust flavors. Well rounded flavors throughout.
