12 oz bottle. Ok porter, needs a thicker palate and a little more bitterness. Would probably prefer it on tap.

A dark brown to black beer with little to no head. The aroma is some coffee roastiness. The taste is a nice coffee porter, with not an overpowering coffee taste but enough to be a coffee beer. I like it

12oz bottle; very glad theyve started bottling this one. Black, pretty opaque, really, with a tan head that unfortunately doesnt last particularly long - I think the coffee has something to do with that. Definitely some dark coffee/espresso and some sweet/roasty malt on the aroma. As this one warms up a bit, some more of the coffee comes out, though its still not the dominant flavor. The malt is pleasantly smooth and has enough going on to stand up pretty well to the coffee and minimal hops. I certainly dont mind more coffee in my beer than this has, but its nicely balanced and has enough to be quite tasty. Good brew.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2010 Dark pour with a nice aroma. Good flavors and spices, coffee probably being the best of them.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2011 I think I had this on tap with Cavie while in Texas. Decent flavors for the style, but not nearrrrly enough coffee flavor. Lame.

3/25/11. Bottle courtesy Dustin. Not quite opaque black with a huge brown head that cuts in half. Somewhat plain grainy aroma with a hint of chocolate. Disappointing flavor as well with chocolate and a bit of coffee, but there should be way more. Other than that, not bad.

Cavie (4638) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 6, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2010 Nice. Pretty dark pour. Coffee taste could have been stronger and played a larger role in my opinion.3.6
RE-RATE 2/9/10 Very dark pour with reddish tints through the light. Quite a light smell. Some dark malts but not much to impact upon. Mouthfeel is smooth and coating. Taste has some biting chocolate with a medicinal aftertaste. Pepperminty in the wrong kind of way.

Black with a lovely tan head. Smell is exactly what I would expect from porter with definite coffee overtones. Taste is pleasant with some bitterness from the malts. Brussels lace is evident and the beer a more quality look.

BMan1113VR (7922) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 23, 2009
On tap. Pours with a thick, foamy, khaki colored head and a very deep, near black body. Good lace. Aroma of coffee grounds, vanilla and a touch of spice. Taste is clean roast and a bit of vanilla with a few lingering banana esters. Longish duration. Syrupy consistency, full bodied with light carbonation. Good Texas porter.
