3.73/5  rDev -8.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours nearly black, left a very small head that receded almost immediately. Moderate amount of lacing left behind.

Notes of coffee, molasses, hint of chocolate maybe some roasted oats as well.

Rich dark espresso flavor, though the coffee flavor is a bit off. Don't know quite how to explain it, but I'm guessing the culprit here is over-roasted beans. Bitterness arrives in full colors on first taste but is mellowed and nearly gone for the rest.

Medium bodied, maybe a bit high on the carbonation, feels clean otherwise.

A very drinkable coffee porter, but I've had much better.

I have heard of this brewery in passing as it is located fairly close by. As a coffee aficionado I had to get my hands on this beer as they use Dean's Beans which is one of my favorite coffee roasters. I figured that it would taste like drinking coffee, but within a beer and in fact they nailed it.

I poured it into a 12 ounce glass. The color is as black as it could possibly be. There is a coffee/tan colored lace around the edges.

It smells like coffee, a lot of coffee. Perhaps more of an espresso type of smell. Very bold with a small hint of chocolate.

It tastes like COFFEE!!! Wow, to my surprise the notes of coffee are incredibly strong. It's a very full bodied beer and has a nice bite to it.

There is a fair amount of carbonation, but it doesn't take away from the creaminess of the beer. It goes down very smooth.

Overall, it's exceptional. If you love coffee, you will love the coffeehouse porter from BBC!!!

Berkshire Brewing Coffeehouse

Served in a snifter from a bomber.

The pour produces a robust, chewy and imposing head, oatmeal and khaki in color. The body is black and opaque. Head holds very well and leaves sticky lacing in it's wake. 5

Roasted coffee is present but light. Ditto dark chocolate. Earthy hop notes are noticeable too. This nose isn't incredibly vibrant. 3

Taste is much more assertive. Deep dark roast coffee finds its place in the brew without becoming dominant. The finish is a delicious blend of coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and caramel and takes on a latte blend flavor as it warms. 4

Having recently had the incredibly rich and full-bodied Founder's Porter recently, I have to compare these two and the body on this is noticeably thinner. Not so much as to detract from the beer, but it certainly could elevate this beer to legendary status to have a bit more thickness. Other than that, it's smooth and finishes with a roasted and slightly bitter coffee-like feel. Very pleasant. 4

Not much to add in summary, other than that this brew is good and an absolute bargain at around $4 a bomber.
