On tap at Grizzlys. Pours near black with a earthy dark brown head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has a good amount of coffee with bitter dark grains and strong roasted malts. Flavor has strong bitter coffee supported by strong roasted malts and dark grains.

AWISLguy (2713) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 15, 2016
On tap at Champps in Brookfield. Dark brown pour with a beige head. Big chocolate nose with roast and caramel. Taste is of bakers chocolate, fudge and caramel. With roast showing through. Blend is well done, the body is medium-to-full and there is a bit of an alcohol presence. Finishes to the fudge-y sweet side of bittersweet. Tasty and solid for style. 14.6

nuplastikk (5911) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 6, 2015
Tap at sidedoor. Burgundy brown body. Steady creamy off white head. Massive coffee tones, almost too much really, but really has a quality coffee feel. Full bodied. Tasty, but hard to drink a lot of.

Oakes (16105) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2015
Draft @ Laser Wolf. Dark brown, lots of coffee on the nose. The taste is coffee with some fairly smooth, lightly chocolatey dark malts. Very coffeeish but clean, roasty and pretty good.

dagimp (970) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2015
Growler from Whole Foods Plymouth Meeting. Pours a dead black/brown color. Good amount of frothy white head. Aroma is straight coffee. Mouthfeel is lighter than what Id expect, but then again, it is a porter, so its probably dead on. Little carbonation. Taste is cocoa and cold brewed coffee. cold brewed, because there is very little bitterness to it. Reminded me of a dialed down version of Speedway Stout... which is a high complement. Damn good beer.

Tobacco scent and vanilla peeks out. Coffee flavor hits right away. Chocolate is sweet and light. Dark brown/black. Tap

hopwine (670) - brooklynzzzzz, New York, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Intense coffee melds well with a base beer that leans towards roasty and dry. Well-made and clean but pretty simple.

Drinks above its weight. The wine noted in the coffee comes through quite strong and gives this porter an interesting character even if its not one Im crazy about. Different.
