Picked up at Bradley's in Tustin. 16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 11/18/2021. Pours opaque dark brown/black color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy tan head with great retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing and moderate streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas and flavors of big nutty medium roasted coffee, milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toast, biscuit, dark bread/crust, blueberry, dark fruit, wood, pepper, pine, herbal, grass, light smoke/char, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate pine, herbal, roast, charred bitterness on the finish. Wonderful nose on the coffee and fruity Ethiopian/Guatemalan coffee characteristics. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; very creamy/bready malts, some sticky hops, chalky char/roast, and silkiness in the mouthfeel. Lingering resin and chalky drying, with no cloying/acrid/astringency. Mild warmth of 8%. Very smooth and very American on style. Really great showcase of aforementioned sourced coffees. A lot fruiter than I expected, but still plenty of rich malt complexity and a nice bitter/drying semi hoppy finish.

Imperial Coffee Porter
Pizza Port Brewing
Bacon & Eggs
Date: 11/11/2021
I was stoked to find this beer; it has been on my want list for quite a while. A few beers from Pizza Port still remain on that list. I served in my fancy Spiegelau stout, hovering around 40 degrees. The pour created a frothy and creamy light tan one-fingered. The quick dissipation left no lacing on the glass. The only existence of the head is a ring around the beer. The dark brown nearly black color charts around SRM 35. This beer has no hues and is opaque when put up to a light source. The ABV is only 8 percent; I have seen stout with higher ABVs have longer-lasting heads.
The initial aromas are coffee, chocolate, molasses, and roasty malts. Nosing the glass further, I detect a hint of campfire, earthiness, and some floral. The coffee is strong, making it difficult to smell anything else.
An abundant amount of coffee is apparent in this beer. The coffee is roasty, a touch acrid, and slightly smoky. The malts are roasty and bready. Other flavors in the beer are earthiness, chocolate, molasses, caramel, and cereal grains like oats.
The mouthfeel is somewhat astringent and dry. The body is medium, has medium carbonation, and has a pleasant finish.
This porter is fabulous; it has everything anyone who enjoys coffee want in a beer. I love the immense amount of coffee without it being chewy and thick. This beer would be great on a beautiful fall evening looking at the stars. I enjoyed every sip of this beer.

Thankfully this beer didn't taste like bacon and eggs. I wasn't to sure what to expect opening this can, but it basically has coffee and chocolate notes to it. I liked it, but not as much as a lot of the reviews I've seen, but I'm not a huge porter guy.

Dark brown body with modest tan head. Pleasant aroma if coffee, chocolate, caramel, brown sugar. Sweet & bitter. Flavor follows nose with the addition of roasted malt. No bacon or eggs detected. Feel is slightly thin & flat. Overall, very good

Black, appears to be well carbonated, beige foam.

Spot on, nothing but coffee. Delectable.

Zero notes of alcohol, it's basically carbonated cold brewed coffee. After that, not much. No fruit, just intensely earthy. Perhaps I'm too used to stouts as this doesn't get filled out with rich roasted malt or chocolate. Simplistic but still tasty.

Harsh like coffee.

I am not a big porter drinker but could not pass up this single 16 oz can from Trader Joes on 12/16/20 based on the description. can dated 11/4/20. Pours dark brown with about 1-1/2 fingers of dark tan head of moderate to short duration. No lacing. The coffee is the star here, apparent in the smell but definitely in the taste...and it is like VERY GOOD coffee, not like generic "let's add coffee so we can say we did" coffee. The mouthfeel IMO seems to loose a little more carbonation towards the end of the glass than I prefer, but overall, this is probably my favorite porter and a must try for coffee flavored beer fans.

Poured from a can at fridge temp. Pours jet black with a nice amount of brown head. The nose is dominated by the amazing smell of coffee, and this has to be one of the best coffee smells from a beer. I have had a ton of coffee stouts, and this one is absolutely spectacular. Getting a bit of dark chocolate and some dark fruits, but again it's dominated by coffee.
The taste nicely follows the nose, but a few new flavors come through. It's sweet up front with a slightly bitter (coffee grounds) aftertaste. The coffee is definitely there, but now I get some nice chocolate, cherries, blackberries, prunes, raisins, charred wood, bread, and a bit of vanilla. Definitely a nice mixture of flavors and, overall, quite smooth. Definitely easy drinking. At 8% ABV, it's neither super thick nor overly strong on the alcohol side of things. It's worth a try!

The beer I got poured a a black color with no head.

The flavor was... coffee, strong, sweet but it was a little flat. I looked at the canning date and it was over a year old and it was still pretty solid. I want to find this one again (just fresher) and try it.

August 28th, 2015 - Strangely named, but brusque and heavy like its namesake breakfast, Bacon and Eggs is a solid stout in IPA town. A large coffee scent pairs nicely with vanilla and gourmet beans. The flavor is strong and robust, with a smooth flavor and silky palate. The flavor really blossoms in the mid to aftertaste, and shifts from coffee bitterness to Ghirardeli chocolates, and ends with a long, sexy and sultry aftertaste. Here too is the gourmet coffee note. Flavorful and smooth, this is what I long for when it comes to stouts,

Rich coffee aroma right off the crack of the can. Pours like a cup of joe, black brown with thin foam. Coffee roast is there, with a nice lingering finish on a body on the thin side of things. Well done.

Single from Trader Joe’s in SD. Pours a cola brown colour with scant cream coloured head. The aroma is big time coffee, roasty but at the same time sweet with chocolate malt, vanilla, caramel - so good.
Taste follows with sweetened dark roast coffee, milk chocolate, vanilla sweetness, touch of bitterness that balances perfectly. Mouthfeel is a little thin yet at the same time creamy - no sign of 8% ABV - really drinkable - dangerously so. Great beer.

Look is deep brown to clear blank with lacing that fades too quickly . Smell is nice mix of malt sweetness and smell like a brew day. Taste is burnt toast just over the line and the mouth fell is touch thin . If there was touch more mout feel or taste on the back end could really make this beer stand out. Either way good nice drinking beer
