Nice, deep chocolate brown color keeping out the light !!. Aroma is of chocolate and a back of coffee(thought it would be the other way around !!). Head is minimal and lacing is ok ! Taste is nice of roasted coffee infused with a bit of fine bittersweet chocolate. The feel is thick and chewy and this beer lingers around for quite awhile, Nice !!!!!!!!

Not overwhelming, but strong flavors. Is what it says.

I'm pretty sure I've a some stuff from this brewery before and they were competent. This too.

It's brown with a little fizz and hardly any lacing. The aroma is good but not strong - coffee and roasted malts. Nice.

The taste similarly is a nice balance roasty coffee but a little weak on the Porter malts. The finish is sweet and clean.

This a quality product and reasonably priced.

This is a fantastic, organic, non-GMO beer. Has a nice coffee taste and aroma and I would absolutely purchase this again. Just a great porter!

Bottom Line: Organic never tasted so good!

One of the most coffee forward beers I've ever had. A light stout but despite the extreme coffee nose and taste it was well balanced. No ashiness, roastiness. Also minimal chocolate. Definitely worth a try.
