brokensail (16111) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 28, 2011
Pours a very dark brown color with a finger of tan head. Smells strongly of coffee, especially like espresso and coffee grounds. A bit of roast, maybe some toffee sweetness. The flavor is also rather intense on the coffee, but I suppose thats the point. Lots of roasted coffee notes, a bit of coffee grounds, perhaps some roasted malt and dark chocolate, too. Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation.

Bottle from Marcus. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate espresso. Strong. Med + body. Flavor is strong espresso with a deal of chocolate. Earthy chocolate. Or something like that. Really powerful flavors. Of the good kind. This beer could be for breakfast. Fooh on Founders Oatmeal Breakfast concept. This would work way better on porridge.

Lubiere (13049) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 7, 2016
A deep dark porter with a very thin brown head. In aroma, nutty chocolate malt with light coffee notes, light caramel, OK. In mouth, a rather interesting mix, coffee grind, musty character, light vegetable salts, solvent notes, strange and unpleasant. On tap at brewery.

Roasted coffee, malt and chocolate in the nose. Medium-bodied with flavors of roast coffee, chocolate malt and earthy hops. The finish is roasty with a coffee aftertaste. Pretty good all around.
