Has a good taste of coffee to it, but not so as to overpower the beer. Malty and not bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Soupordean (33) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2017
Poured from a bottle. Clear medium brown color, small off white head. Dust and malt aroma. Medium body with a sweet creamy malt flavor with slight gut pepper currents and a decent finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fatehunter (2567) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 14, 2017
Pours a finger and half of head on a dark brown body. Aroma is roasted malt, mild coffee and wood. Taste has a nice coffee flavor throughout, malty. Nice. Texture is softer. Quite enjoyable.

I’m not sure if mine was too old, or too cold. Not much head, not much aroma, not much flavor, thin. Meh.

Clear deep amber with a thinnoff white foamy top. Nice mellow malty nose that’s amberish and lightly roasty with a nice cool cold-brew tone. Smooth semisweet amberish flavor with light cold brew flavors, particularly toward the finish. A little basic, a little lighter than it needs to be but it’s tasty.

24 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, rapidly collapsing beige head, with minimal lacing, over a clear brown (SRM 20) body.......nose is light coffee, mild roasted malts, with toast, cracker, mild dried fruit tones, no hops......taste is mild coffee, light roasted malts, dry throughout, finishing with light hop bitterness, no esters, balance to the coffee and malts......mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, moderate carbonation. This is a pleasant, easy drinking but quite light and simple beer. It misses the stated style of Porter with the mild malt body, but could have been called a Spice/Herb/Vegetable, if the base were a Dark Lager. BJCP 6/3/10/4/5

ironprog (83) - Florida, USA - MAY 5, 2017
12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark amber with a tight, white, foamy head that dissipates slowly. Aromas of yeast, chocolate, and a slight hint of lemon. Taste is mildly sweet with watered-down flavors of chocolate, coffee, and caramel. Body is medium and on the watery side. Texture is thin with average carbonation. Finish is on the astringent side and has a bit of a "metallic tang" to it. Overall, I found the watery flavor and body to be underwhelming.

SpringsLicker (3638) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 4, 2017
Bottle. Clear dark brown with mahogany highlights. Small tan head. Light sweet aroma of roast malt and cocoa powder. The flavor is Porter that was watered down with cafe mocha. Not bad just thin bodied and thin flavored.

3.2
Bill Becker (1035) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - MAY 2, 2017
Pours reddish brown, healthy finger of tannish foam. Good smell of roasted coffee with some chocolate that seems to be on the sweet side. Coffee and chocolate dominate the taste. Bitter sweet overall. I like it.

3.1
tfontana (974) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - APR 27, 2017
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Andover Liquors. Appearance is clear dark ruby red with minimal sparkle, no head and no lacing. Aroma is dark-roasted coffee. Taste is bittersweet roasted coffee. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture, lively carbonation and finish as taste. Overall, tastes like sweetened ice coffee. Tasty but much more coffee than ale.
