Light carbonation with a just above average body. Has a bit of an oily slick feel which overall adds up to a great feel.
Aroma is peanut butter, chocolate, coffee beans, mocha candy.
Taste is peanut butter first bit theres chocolate, coffee beans and sweet mocha candy.
Overall its a really nice dessert beer that I would look for again.

Ordered from Tavour in a 12 ounce can, chilled, and poured into a pint glass.

Look: Dark brown, almost black, with a two finger light tan head that dissipated leaving a nice ring and thin layer of foam lingering.
Smell: Sweet day old coffee, peanut butter and chocolate mixed with dark roasted coffee notes.
Taste: Bitter sweet coffee up front followed by trailing light old coffee flavor, chocolate in the nose and trailing peanut butter. The bitter hangs around a while. No booze.
Feel: Medium body, smooth mouthfeel with a light tickle of carbonation that didn’t hang as it warmed.

Overall this is a nice sipping porter. Porters are difficult to find in our area. Most everyone has IPAs and Stouts and so this was a nice find. I would drink this again if I could.

Cheers!

Received a can from a friend at the Monday night poker game. Canned on 2-4-20; consumed 6-17-21.

Beer poured dark brown with a nice tan head with the original pour.

Nose is coffee forward with some mild roast, light chocolate, and heavy peanut butter.

Taste is peanut butter forward with chocolate and coffee in the background. Finishes surprisingly balanced as hopping and coffee offset nicely.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and pretty smooth.

Overall there is a lot going on with this beer. The coffee taste likely is stronger fresh as the peanut butter was front and center for me. A nice beer for sure! Would like to try a fresh version.

12oz can from Tavour. While coffee is not my favorite adjunct, I trust Hoppin' Frog wholeheartedly, and I'm not disappointed. Dark brown pour with a wispy tan head. Aroma is heavy on the chocolate, deep, rich, exquisite. Taste is more of the sumptuous chocolate, light bitter, roasty coffee notes backing it up. Wow! Excellent from start to finish and we'll worth the high accolades.

I got a 4pck of this gem from my local meijer store. It poured an opaque dark with off white head that is leaving some lace. The scent had rich mix of dark and milk chocolate with espresso highlights. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with rich sweet malt base that carried dark and milk chocolate, vanilla and coffee roast notes. Honestly....its a starbuck mochachinno in a beer can....awesome. the mouthfeel was fuller in body and had good carbonation. Overall it is an outstanding beer!

Poured from a can. Dark in color with a foamy tan head. Smells of chocolate and peanut butter. Thick mouth feel, tastes of chocolate, peanut butter, roasted grain and hints of coffee. Flavors all work together really well. Great beer.

Wow I wish I could grab more! Visited a hole-in-the-wall establishment around the austintown Ohio area and found these a four pack for $15. Smell and flavor is phenomenal can't believe a coffee Stout could have such Rich fudgy tones of bittersweet chocolate and peanut butter. Doesnt even matter if I was in the mood for a porter the smooth chocolate tones greeted me every time I enjoyed every one. This is a true testament to the glory that is hoppin frog

Pours dark brown with a two finger tan fizzy head that dissipates quickly to a partial film. Little lacing. Nose of peanut butter and dark chocolate fudge with a swirl of vanilla. Taste follows the nose with a roasted coffee and malt finish that lingers with a light sweet bitterness. Silky and slightly creamy with fine low level carbonation. This porter is very nice!

Pours a dark brown with a swirly, tan head. No carbonation.
Smelll is huge chocolate fudge.
Taste of fudge brownie and peanut butter with slight coffee. The coffee bitterness comes through in the end. I'm sure coffee bigger fresh. A lactose creaminess, alcohol not detected.
Silky smooth. A wonderful porter!

-Tower Tuesday Series. can.

A: A dark coffee pour produces a one finger, frothy dark tan head with some macro-bubbly craters. A ton of effervesce sticks to the bottom of the chalice. Thin golden-ring lashes decorates the vessel.

S: Fresh creamer laced french vanilla roast is fresh with a support of fresh chocolate additions. Peanut butter and fresh roasted peanut shells add a carnival like scent. Rich milky chocolate with a touch of marshmallow arrives on the finish that is deep and sweet with a very good strength and character.

T: The flavor is peanut butter and roasted peanut shells, sweetened with some vanilla laced french roast. Sweet chocolate, mocha and burnt brown sugar sweetness. Some smokey chocolate and freshly ground coffee bean bitterness finishes out.

M: Creamy and chewy mouthful, oats, smooth and silky character with a quiet demeanor of carbonation that adds to the smooth, gentle nature on the tongue. Really smooth.

O: Overall, a sweet flavor, peanut butter, vanilla with a robust coffee offering and finish. Good drink-ability, fresh late coffee additions makes for a strong and very good favorable first impression and lasting finish.

Poured from 22oz bottle into glass. No bottling date information found.
Dark brown colored body, with some garnet colored light pass throughs when back lit. One finger of light tan head, remains for quite some time as a bubble fed, creamy cap. No real lacing left behind.
Aroma is strong with peanut, dark coffee, and dark roasted malts. Suggests a hint of milk chocolate also.
Taste has lots of dark coffee, along with the peanut flavor. Dark roasted malts are the backbone. The chocolate is again a hint. No real bitterness and not real sweet, with just the dark, rich flavors dominating the taste.
Right at the medium level for mouth feel, with a rather smooth feel. Very good carbonation.
Overall, this is an excellently prepared porter. Very smooth and easy to drink, if you like dark coffee and the peanut flavor.
