Pours black with a half finger tan head that dissipates. Very complex nose, toffee, licorice, plumb, milk chocolate. Complexity moves on to the tongue, just a lot of roasty malts bringing out a lot of flavor. Nice toffee and plumb aftertaste. Medium bodied beer, alcohol is well hidden, and went down velvety smooth. This was not what I was expecting at all, and I have to say this was a pleasant surprise.
Bought it somewhere in Chicago; Bottled on 2015:
Pours black, clear, with creamy one finger beige /light brown head. Aroma: intense mokka coffee, hint of caramel, vanilla, some dark fruits in the background as prunes, plums etc. Flavor: Intense coffee note, which takes on mokka, espresso, supported with malt backbone, which takes on toasted, hint of caramel, 85% dark chocolate, supported with notes of dark fruits, like plums, prunes, some reisins...finish is slightly bitter, hop bitterness takes on some citruses...and dry. Body is medium to full, texture is soft, velvetly, carbonation is moderate medium.
Overall: for 9.2% dangerously drinkable, with any notice of an alcohol and pretty well balanced, especially for a Beer where Coffe was added. bytemesis (8232) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 12, 2016

Bomber from dusty.....one of the best coffee porters i have i ever tried....so many times the coffee is overdone and it ruins the beer....this beer had the perfect amount of coffee mixed in and it was excellent. RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2015
Bottle Wholefoods, Orlando. Ruby black porter, thin white head. Rich, bitter coffee flavour, sharp aroma. This is an intense beer on all levels, you can taste the beans, the chocolate, the roast, everything. DialSquare (4980) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2015

Inky, with a medium khaki head that has an oatmeal consistency. Tangy roasted aroma with a little black olive and creosote. Pleasant roast, smooth, modestly sweet but it has some candied-fruity flares at times. Tangy, sweetish aftertaste with trailing java. Better than I expected. On tap, Momos.
