boFNjackson (4200) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 2, 2012
Growler shared at a recent BA/RB tasting... Poured near black with a thin, off-white head. This was awesome and one of my favorites of the tasting. Incredible, pressed coffee flavor. Really rich with coffee, a hint of acid, roast, charred grains. Straight forward, to the point, making the coffee shine while acting harmoniously with the Porter base.

BOLTZ7555 (3018) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Sampled at Rattle N Hum. Too much tart fruit, potentially infected...lactic qualities accompany bitter chocolate and toffee. Cherry skin, plum, and raspberries are there as well. Distracting. Pass.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Tap at Khyber Pass in Philly. Pours deep black with a lighter beige head. Nice retention. Nose is spicy chili salsa and green peppers. Has that vegetal DMS character from the coffee adjunct unfortunately. A big pet peeve of mine. Taste is light bodied, chalky, powdery, chili salsa, green peppers. Salsa bowl. Not good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Capa (2954) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - FEB 29, 2012
Black with a beige head. Aroma is coffee, roasty, a tad stale, earthy. Flavor packs a bitter coffee wallop. Roasted malts, burnt coffee, light smoke, earth. Good. Strong bitterness from the coffee.

BREWMUSKCLES (2612) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 28, 2012
light smoke from wood with nut caramel sweetness. Quenching cold with accompanying body, and a vanilla finish. Nice liquor aroma. Cola look to it.

dumontn (530) - St. Joseph, Michigan, USA - FEB 15, 2012
Pours black with light brown head. Aroma and taste are stale coffee with some other burnt notes. This was particularly mediocre; coffee beers that taste like days-old cups of coffee left to sit out are not my thing.

kennydiaz (356) - Manahawkin, New Jersey, USA - JAN 12, 2012
Purchased it in a growler from Holiday beverage SI. Has a nice dark brown almost black color. Pours with a mild creamy head. Heavy on the coffee taste with hints of vanilla and wood. Very nice for under $18.

Jow (3649) - New York, USA - JAN 11, 2012
Tap at Stags Head pours rich dark brown with rich aromas of toffee and cocoa. Tastes chocolatey, of coffee, earth, malt, slight spice and earth. Quite nice brew with velvety finish.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2012 On draft at Good Beer. I love how Sixpoint keeps churning out new releases. Here is a roast coffee porter made with Gorilla brand coffee. It is a roasty coffee porter with lots of brown sugar sweetness. It is easy on the acidtiy and the hopping is just right, so it goes down smoothly and leaves a mild aftertaste. As it warms, it begins to release a floral aroma. Another very fine Sixpoint production. Took a couple of points off after a second tasting - not as sweet and fresh as the first time I had it.
