The name alone is awesome. The beer itself is decent. It poured a opaque dark with almost non-existent head that is not lacing. The scent is coffee. The taste has peat and coffee. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with subtle carbonation. Overall it a coffee flavored beer.

A good tasting beer with a balanced coffee and roasted malt attack.

Sharing one of these with the wife. Great look, BIG roastiness and great coffee taste/aromas, bit thin on the mouthfeel (granted, though, it is a porter). Another strong showing in a dark beer by Full Pint. Good stuff.

A little thin for my tastes of a porter, yet enuff good taste and aroma to satisfy.

Pours a small tan head with decent retention and spotty lacing. Brew is a dark brown, almost purplish black.

Aroma is of coffee, cocoa, and roasted barley, roughly in that order. Fairly mild but pleasant.

Flavor starts off thin, with cream, cocoa, coffee, and a nicely balanced bitterness. Coffee and bitterness come through slightly stronger as it warms.

Brew is fairly thin with a lively mouthfeel. Medium length wet finish. Very drinkable.

This is a pretty decent coffee porter. I find that I just want a little more from it, almost across the board: more aroma, more flavor, more body.

Courtesy of SomethingClever, Thank you Beer Brother!

This has the characteristics of a Porter. Poured black with dark brown hues. Nice khaki head. Looks pretty solid. Smells of coffee and caramel with a faint mushroom earthiness. Time to to taste! First hits of sautéed mushrooms and coffee. Caramel is in full flavor toward the finish. This finishes clean with a slight bitterness. The feel is light-thin and tight poppy carbonation.

Overall: This beer is above average yet isn't as adventurous as some coffee porters. I like the caramel and coffee they work nice hand and hand. It's not acidic like some coffee Porters/Stouts tend to be, so that's a plus! I could drink this all day long/night. This brew is worthy!
