Tall, skinny can:
Pours deep, cloudy brown with a foamy tan head.
Aroma is nutty-coffee, malt, wood.
Taste is roasty, coffee-heavy.....nice bittering...creamy, malty.
Very, very nice porter. DocLock (10683) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Shitter can from Capone’s and Smith’s. Pours chestnut with 1-finger tan head. Nose is rich roasty malt, coffee, mild plastic. Tastes of heavy coffee grounds, cacao, mild blackberry, but mostly overpowering coffee. Gets downright acrid late. maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Can. Pours a near-black color with a moderate tan head. Nose has some strong roasting and coffee notes to it with almost a hint of alcohol in it. Taste is slightly bitter with some good roasting elements in there. Just a tad harsh, but in a way that makes you know you’re drinking a beer. travita (5003) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Can. The look is dark, brown to black in color, foamy head dissipates quickly. The smell is coffee, roast, malt, burnt, ash, and black licorice. The taste is sweet, coffee, roast, burnt, acrid, and ok drowland (8676) - Georgia, USA - FEB 26, 2013
On tap at Kickbacks and from a can thanks to Lukaduke, all during RBWG! Rich black pour with a thick tan head that sticks and laces a ton. Rich stout aroma with roast, a solid dose of coffee, and lingering chocolate and cream. Nice creamy flavor with roast, a touch of acidity, coffee, and some chocolate. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Tasty!

Can into goblet-style glass. Very dark brown color with half-finger of creamy looking tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is even stronger coffee, bitter hops, dark chocolate, brown sugar, vanilla and smoke. Medium body and carbonation, leaves a lingering roasty bitter finish. Very good. Dogbrick (13010) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 24, 2013
This brew pours dark brown with a medium foamy tan head that dissipates slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Roasted coffee and malt in the nose. Medium to full body with a strong coffee flavor and notes of chocolate malt and hops. The finish is roasty with a lingering roasty espresso aftertaste. Good beer for coffee lovers all around. Huhzubendah (3705) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 24, 2013
On draft at Capone’s.
The beer has a brown cola body with a thick, creamy, beige head. Ample lacing coats the glass. the aroma is coffee beans all the way. The flavor is big time coffe. Chocolate covered espresso beans, roast. Medium bodied and creamy on the palate. Alcohol content hidden beautifully. Perhaps this beer is one dimensional, but if you enjoy a big, rich coffee stout, you should seek this out. Yum. 4thAgeChris (66) - Miami, Florida, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Coffee, chocolate, and roasty nose. Bitter, chocolate, and coffee flavor, amazing bitter and roasty after taste. Insane body. davey101 (751) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 23, 2013
12 oz tall boy can into a DFH signature glass. Best before July 10, 2013.
A - Pours a dark brown body, borders on black but lets just enough light through to prove otherwise. Gorgeous two fingers worth of light khaki foam with large bubbles. Great lacing and long retention.
S - Lots of fresh roasted coffee and sweet dark chocolate. A touch of charred malts, vanilla and dough. Aroma is excellent.
T - Really nice strong coffee leading into some milk and dark chocolate. Rather strong with a lasting bitterness. Nice balance between sweet and roast.
M - Medium bodied, thick and creamy.
O - A very excellent beer....but I can’t say I’d grab another four pack when Founders FBS is sitting right next to it at $3 cheaper.
