Bottle at DBGB Kitchen & Bar, New York, NY

A: The beer is jet black in color and poured with a ½ finger high dense beige head that has good retention properties and never faded away.
S: There are moderately strong aromas of roasted malts in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell but a little more complex with notes of vanilla and hints of almonds.
M: It feels medium- to full-bodied and very smooth on the palate with a moderate to high amount of carbonation. There are some warming sensations from the alcohol in the finish.
O: This beer is very flavorful and rather easy to drink considering the alcohol content. I would have no problem knocking off a 750 mL bottle of this myself.

From notes 8/11/11. Tap, City Beer Store. Very good strong porter. Pours a very dark brown with a small, dissipating beige head. The aroma has a lot of dark chocolate with coffee, roast and a light touch of vanilla. The vanilla is mild and the coffee is relatively restrained, but both mesh very well and neither tries to take center stage. Taste is mild to medium sweet with a lightly bitter and drying finish. Lots of rich dark chocolate tinged with espresso. Mouthfeel is pretty smooth and medium to low carbonation. It’s a pleasure to drink and I'd love to try it again, perhaps at a slightly lower price.

On Tap

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA

Nearly black pour with a very thin khaki head. Spotted and specking lacing down the glass.

Rich, full aroma of coffee and roasted malt along with some chocolate. A coffee/dessert lover's heaven.

Roasted malt, sweet and burnt chocolate, and lots and lots of rich, authentic coffee flavor along with some mild bitterness. Incredibly well balanced.

Medium to thick bodied. Feels rich and decadent--would make quite a dessert.

A delicious coffee porter I can't wait (and hope!) to have again!

Served from tap into a flared pilsner. Poured a massively dark brown with a half finger tan head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, bread, dark chocolate, and milk chocolate. The flavor was of sweet malt, bread, roasted malt, and dark chocolate. It had a heavy feel on the palate with mild carbonation. Overall this was a good brew. For this one to be a porter it was actually quite enjoyable. All of the flavors were spot on as far as how they were blended together and their intensity. This made the brew quite enjoyable and easy to drink. The dark chocolate bitterness was a very nice touch here and helped out with some of the roastiness that I got on the flavor. A solid example of the style that I'm glad I got the chance to try.

750ml bottle. Tumbler glass. Shared with Robert & Manolo .Enjoyed on apr´12. Black color. Beige, creamy texture, lasting crown. Coffee & black cocoa to the nose. Sweet toasted malty & creamy palate. Slightly bitter. Full body, soft carbonation. Molasses & dark fruits into the finish. Hints of wood & cocoa with hoppy bitterness on the aftertaste. Flavorful. Pleasant drinkability with an ABV well masked by gentle malts.

On-tap, served in a stemmed tulip

An ink black body with a nearly two finger tan head. Moderate lacing. The head falls to a thin layer of foam and never truly dissipates.

The aroma is of sweet vanilla, almonds, coffee, and some chocolate. Biscotti aroma, for sure.

On the palate, this beer is a little paler that the aroma. The flavors are all there--sweet cookie, vanilla, almonds, chocolate and coffee--but a little milder than the nose. The finish is nutty and sweet with a bit of roast coffee.

Medium body, carbonation is a little high. Not as creamy--smooth as I would have hoped.

Some rich flavors, but they are not overbearing. This is a unique beer that I would welcome in my glass anytime.

Thanks to Mike, Michael, and Matt for hooking me up with this brew. You guys rock.

The beer is dark brown, approaching black, with a nice beige head. The aroma offers nuts (walnuts, almonds?), roast, sweet malt. Hints of chocolate and vanilla. The flavor is nice. A touch of booze in the finish. Well balanced, with bread, biscuits, vanilla, roast, booze. Not nearly on the level as the imperial version. Still, quite good. I would have this again.
