Willie #1 Beer ya'll! If you do not try this you are only hurting yourself & your sheltered tastebuds. This ranks #1 amongst coffee porters in Willie world. The only thing close to it is Willoughby Peanut Butter Coffee Porter and sometimes Sam Smith or Atwater Chocolate. Drinking a Wolavers iz like watching Gary Franklin tossin a no-look to Cory Jefferson ya'll! Take it from Willie... This Organic Purebread is a WINNER!

This brew has been sitting in the fridge since my main man BeerTruth sent this awhile back. Not sure why it's sat so long, especially after my first sip. Drank from my Surly nonic pint glass.
Appearance- Pours a nice deep dark black with a beautiful one finger light tan head that seems to stick around forever. A decently spotty cap and thin collar remain leaving behind some freckles of lacing.
Smell- Nice milky cream smell with plenty of rich roasted coffee to back it up. Slightly sweet smelling with a touch of vanilla and a touch of chocolate. Absolutely what a coffee brew should smell like as the coffee is dominate but plenty else going on.
Taste- Starts much the same as the nose. A nice light milky sweetness slowly gives way to loads of rich roasted coffee that is at the perfect strength. A bit of milk chocolate peaks through in the finish as does a bit of roasted bitterness.
Mouthfeel- Maybe just a touch lighter than I'd like but the carbonation is spot on as its light and tingly.
Drinkability- What a great freaking beer. It's no secret I love coffee beers but this was a hidden gem. So drinkable and smooth and the coffee aspect is EXACTLY where it should be. Potent and even somewhat balanced with the rest of the beer. Thanks much Adam, awesome shit!!
