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!

A- a deep brown with a slight ruby tint under light. Head is a light tan and mostly short-lived but there is a slight retention that doesn't leave lacing but just hangs on sip after sip

S- rich roasted coffee dominates with hints of bitter chocolate

T- big coffee notes battle against a rich bready porter in a most delicious manner. There is at times a pleasant sweetness to it all. Don't really get any of the vanilla.

M- smooth and thinner than expected with such a robust aroma and taste. Close to an actual cup of coffee with a little less of the oil. My preference would have it a little fuller body but it's still good as it is.

O- a big and bold coffee porter. Well made and tasty.
