Tap at Craft Ale House. Pours a deep almost black with a creamy tan head. Aroma of a nice complex coffee, chocolate, nuts and malt sweetness. Flavor is also of complex coffee notes, chocolate, sweet malts, light roast and caramel. Ethiopian Yergacheffe coffee is my favorite beans and I was excited to hear that It was used in this beer. jredmond (8839) - New York, New York, USA - APR 10, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2012 Draft at barcadi in Brooklyn. Pours pitch black with nice off white lacing. Aroma is delicious expresso roast. Mouthfeel is medium with flavors of roast, expresso, and some sweet notes...maybe even some fruit??? Pwn3d (1958) - Manhattan, New York, USA - APR 10, 2010
On tap at barcade. Aroma is rich espresso... Roasty and hearty. Taste is roasted malts, smoke, espresso, and a touch of vanilla. Great porter! smith4498 (3697) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - MAR 21, 2010

JW77 hooks it up. Dark brown pour. Coffee, chocolate, roasted malt and some molasses in the aroma. Flavor is much the same. A great coffee note makes this one a real treat.

Tap at Barcade. I had the 2008 vintage. Very decent but it didn’t live up to my expectations. Everything about the beer was a little light. Aroma of slightly roasted malts and mild coffee. Flavor was pleasant, some malty sweetness, tasty notes of chocolate and coffee. Clean with a hint of bitter bite on the finish. Sort of like a Brownstone with some coffee. zdk (1917) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 18, 2009
On tap at the Blind Tiger. A great looking beer. Black with tan head.Coffee and chocolate. Nice fizz. I liked sipping this and I liked gulping this. Unfortunately, it didn’t last long. Finishes with a hoppy kick. WeeHeavySD (3387) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 5, 2009
Tap at Blind Tiger today. Pours black with a tan ring. Nose is huge with a big old punch of coffee. Taste shares the coffee intensity as well as the coffe choco richness in this great impy porter. shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 16, 2009
