Bottle shared by Sammy, 650ml into a tulip.

Black body with a brown head. Film of retention. Nose has fresh roast, light sourness and mild chocolate. Tastes of coffee beans, lightly sour again and bitter chocolate. Light feel, tartness persists. Good coffee notes, but this wasn't all that complex in any regard. Not something I'd pursue again.

Better than I expected. I thought the coffee taste would be too much but it isn't overbearing. I'm not sure though if I would want to drink a few of these, but one or two would be good. This is definitely a winter bear, dark and heavy for a cold night. Interesting taste.

Great appearance, big bubbly head on dark body, with some reddish highlights. Lacey. Smooth mouthfeel. Some horse on grass in the residue. Coffee but not all coffee, or acidic. Vanilla and chocolate. Some sourness. Decent drinkability. From Champane's Cellars.

22oz bomber poured into a mug...

A: Nearly opaque black with a khaki-colored head and lacing...

S: Astringent coffee notes hit first, with a moderate roasted character and malt presence. A touch of smoke to boot, and a bit of mocha and burnt caramel.

T: Follows the nose; roasty and gritty espresso, and even the suggestion of some burnt malt? Flash of dark chocolate (bakers chocolate even) and dark/burnt caramel. Dry and bit bitter.

MF: Astringent mouthfeel with a moderate body and medium carbonation. A bit thin...

O: Definitely has that cold-pressed coffee feel to it, but the astringent notes aren't as pleasant as I remembered...previously reviewed this one on-tap and liked it...maybe some age caught up to it? Not sure, but definitely not as good as I remember. Still a drinkable coffee porter though IMO.

I poured this high powered beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer poured very black with a tan head. Not impressive though. The beer smelled like perfume, fake like. The taste of the beer was bitter chocolate but just too much alcohol. Note much could get through that 9.2% burn. I will not buy again.

A-Pours a nice black with thick brown head
S-medium coffee with toffee & cocoa undertones.
T-nice coffee flavor, subtle undertones, alcohol well hidden. When cooler, additional prominent flavor up front that I can't identify. Fades on warming... Maybe due to other flavors coming in....anyone else help?
M-disappointingly thin
O-good beer for the price

22 ounce bottle - $6.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

9/14/12 printed on the label's side.

Appearance: Pours a black body with a tall, long-lived, tan-hued head.

Smell: Roasted malts, coffee beans, and some slight, underlying acrid, tart-scented unpleasantness that grows a bit more revealing as it warms.

Taste: Roasted malts, a slathering of dark chocolate sauce, with some underlying burnt grains. Then, unfortunately, it comes a taste of tart, sourish, puckering rancid fruit which hits midway and greatly hinders the taste from here on out. Drying, rank, yet still coffee-ish on the fi--DRAIN POUR. I'm tapping out, friends.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-high carbonation.

Overall: Anubis, Anubis, Anubis... This beer dredges up some old Siletz beer memories.

Poured from a bomber bottle into my Stone goblet...

A - Pours a very dark brown color, with a thin brown head that disipates very quickly, leaving a slight right.

S - The smell is very coffee dominant, slightly sweet. Some chocolatey cocoa notes as well.

T/M - The taste right off the bat is thin and a little watered down. Burnt malt backbone, with a coffee finish. There is a slight mocha-coffee aftertaste. Thin mouthfeel, average mouthfeel.

O - Very easy to drink at 9%, the alcohol is hidden very well. But the taste does fall a little short. The aroma is very inviting, but the taste is a little disapointing.

22 picked up at the COOP tonight for about $7.. poured into my slim tulip... dark tan head atop a perfectly black brew... Nice lacing and retention..

Good coffee as expected meshes with some dark cocoa and just enough malty residuals to deliver the nose and make it interesting.

Flavors are all there, but sorta fall short.. nothing really crosses any benchmark.. light cocoa and decent coffee bean flavors.. there could possibly be a bit more of everything and especially some maltiness that really delivers the malts and the beans.

Body is light given the ABV... needs more UUMMMPPPH!

Despite my above negatives, this is a pretty damn good brew.. Big Boned Coffee Porter for less than $8? Needs work, but I will buy again.
