On cask @ Small Bar. What a nice surprise. A really mellow coffee aroma and very very dark brown almost black pour with no head. Fairly thin-bodied with well balanced coffee ad chocolate flavors, slight roasty finish.

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.

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.

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.

Aurelius (5129) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 1, 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. Leather
