A very good coffee porter, not overwhelming sweet, not too bitter. An even balance of the chocolate malts and sweet acidic coffee aftertaste. Pours black as night, thick tan head. Tried with Vaughn and Josh in Lawrence in 2012.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2009 Draft at Jerry’s. Black with good, creamy cappuccino head / Rich, roast nose of barley, coffee, chocolate and vanilla / Medium body, chewy with good hop balance on the excellent, lingering finish / Flavors of tobacco, dark roast coffee, bittersweet chocolate, and vanilla / Great flavor profile and balance. Better than many stouts.

Sweet loving, this is some amazing stuff. One of the best beers I’ve ever had (out of a bottle) and would love to snag again. An extremely roasty brew with a tart espresso finish and notes of plums, chocolate, coffee, and dark grains. Absolutely stunning.

Black color with a one-finger head. Strong coffee aroma. Light chocolate and roasted malt. Tons of coffee, chocolate and rich, dark malt flavor. Very light bitter roast. Thick as heck. I freakin love this!

another fantastic coffee porter in a growing sea of coffee-infused beers. pours black and bleeds a medium thick head. nose is slightly sweet with a hint of smoke. mouth is silky and somewhat oily. taste is coffee and dark chocolate. tastes more like a stout than a porter, but is wonderful. if two brothers would make it in a 6 pack for $3.99, I would be a happy man. Excellent treat for any coffee/beer fanatics.

Tap at Marshall Stack. Really solid beer. Poured a dark, brown-black with a thick beige head. Nose of dark coffee and chocolate with a flavor that emphasizes those aromas. Nice burnt malt character and lingering, mocha aftertaste.

Purchased at Armanetti’s in Chicago, IL; enjoyed on a stormy, steamy Thursday May night. Appearance is pitch black, moderate consistentcy, at first pour the head is huge and off white fizzy. Aroma is a fantastic blend of coffee, dark roasted chocolate, mocha. Taste is extremely smooth considering the ABV, rich in chocolate with a light bitterness from the coffee beans. It’s got a touch of sweetness, but for me that touch is just right. I think this is the cats pajamas, 2nd of the 15 anniversary beers I’ve had and both have been fantastic.
