22 oz bomber poured into a Samuel Adams perfect pint glass.

A: This pours a very dark brown, tan 2 finger head. There's also some reddish amber that pokes through when I hold it up to the light. Quite the amount of lacing as I get through this glass.

S: There is a predominant coffee aroma and not much of anything else. Mighty tasty in my nose. Maybe a little chocolate but that may be a stretch.

T: Coffee. A pretty straightforward coffee taste. Definitely delicious. The coffee flavor has the feel of an ice coffee flavor, as opposed to a regular coffee flavor that comes with most coffee offerings (FBS). Overall this is a refreshing taste.

M: A light feel, almost like a thick water. Doesn't stick to the palate and kind of subsides after a little bit of time. Not bad though; better than some other brews I've had.

Overall: This is a pretty good brew. I'd definitely prefer Founders Porter to this one, as founders has more than just a coffee flavor. With that being said, I do like this and I may pick up a bottle in the future. 4.49 for a bomber isn't such a bad price nowadays. Berkshire Brewing has a winner on their hands with this one.

Love this beer. I felt like changing it up from my usual run since it is so damn cold outside. And for $3.99, what a steal.

A: Black. Very, very dark. Looks like, well, coffee. Licorice comes to mind. So does a black hole. Lacing left at the top reminds me of the lacing at the top of a root beer float left from the ice cream.

S: Coffee. Straight in your face coffee. There is no going around it. As the beer warms, hints of chocolate, fig and vanilla appear.

T: This baby tastes like the finest coffee money can buy. Jamaican, peruvian? Wish I knew what types of beans were used for the "coffee extract" made for BBC. Slight chocolate and vanilla as the beer warms.

M: Heavy. Lingers around the edges of your mouth as it drips down. Amazing. Good bitterness too.

O: You wanted a coffee porter? You got a coffee porter. I plan on bringing a few of these bad boys back with me to NY and then to NC to enjoy with a few of my friends.

A = The darkest, most beautiful black coffee you can imagine, with a luscious creamy head and ample lacing on the glass.

S = Coffee upfront and the malty porter second. Exquisite.

T = Wow!! For a coffee and porter lover like me, this is heavenly. Coffee, light vanilla, and then smooth maltiness on the palate.

M = True to the Porter style, with just a bit of extra-creaminess.

O = This is a favorite that I hope to revisit over and over again. Would it be wrong to pour this in a coffee cup in the morning and enjoy it at 7 a.m.?!? As far as food pairings, I'm not quite sure what would stand up to its richness, but maybe a slice of pecan pie or a sweet/spicy barbeque sauce on top of baby back ribs?

22 oz bomber.

A - dark as night. Small cream colored head. Second pour a two finger fluffy head.

S - coffee, smoke, vanilla.

T - tastes as it smells. Heavy in the coffee.

M - near perfect. Solid, but not overly thick or syrupy.

O - good stuff. Recommended for porter heads.
