Blackish brown pour with a brown head. Coffee obviously leads the nose with semi-sweet chocolate, toast, light smoke, and fresh earth accenting. Amazing coffee porter, take everything for the nose, enhance the potency and add toast, caramel, molasses and herbal hops. Feel is medium bodied but leaves plenty of room with coffee, roast, and hop textures, chewy, malty, creamy, and percolated without being a monster on the palate, so drinkable while having the robust base.

12 oz can into a pint glass. Pours a very dark brown with a two-finger dense tan head. Strong dark chocolate and coffee smell that had my mouth watering. Taste mostly follows - dark chocolate, toffee, roasted malt, caramel, molasses all melded together with just enough bitterness to even things out. An excellent coffee porter!

Eugene is an excellent porter. The coffee version doesn’t appeal to me nearly as much. I find it too roasty and bitter. And it has an unpleasant aftertaste.

Another fine Revolution beer. Pushed my buttons as I love porters and coffee beer. Strong coffee in aroma and flavor. Chocolate notes appear during finish and provide a nice counterpart to the fresh roast coffee. Mouthfeel is pleasant but might be a little light for some reviewers. A finger of foam upon pouring that fades fairly quickly. Minimal lacing. Very enjoyable beer. Would love to see an imperial version.

Poured into a tulip. Jet black with very attractive inch of light tan head that held its own for a while before slowly dissipating. Smells of coffee and alcohol, but in just the right amounts. While it's not overly complex on the nose, in that I don't pick up lots of different notes, it sure smells good and inviting. Taste largely follows the nose. Smooth, with clear coffee notes. Feel is just a hair thin, but at 6.8% seems about right. Overall, a very enjoyable beer.

Pours black with mahogany on the edges and a substantial tan head, there is dark chocolate, toffee, and coffee aromas on the nose.

The coffee is forward on the taste, but it’s the dark chocolate and toffee notes that guide this magnificent beer into a smooth landing. This exceeds the base beer, which I love. Exceptionally well done by Revolution, IMHO.

Pours pitch black. 2 finger tan head. Head retention is amazing. Some lacing on the glass as the head dissipates.
The nose is, a sweet coffee aroma.
Taste - A nice smooth coffee flavor mixed in with a malty sweetness. Bit of caramel also coming across to me.
The body is decent. Smooth feeling.
A solid beer overall.

Just the best coffee beer I've ever had! Visit to Wisconsin found this brew and loved it! Santa Fe Brewing company's Java Stout the only thing close to it in the Rocky Mountain Region. Only wish we could get Coffee Eugene in Colorado!

Poured into a pint glass. A nearly opaque dark brown color with a medium sized tan head. Good staying power. Aroma was a bit muted but with faint chocolate, vanilla, and coffee. The taste featured classic porter flavors with roasted grains, chocolate, and a hefty dose of coffee that built through the taste. Medium-bodied and off-dry on the finish. Overall, outstanding.

Pours black with a finger of dense, khaki foam. Head retention is good. Aroma is big roasty, nutty, toasty malts right up front. As malts fade, fleshy, fruity coffee, chocolate, caramel and burnt sugar become apparent, adding a soothing blend of bitter sweet. Flavor profile is a complex blend of roasty, toasty, nutty malts with fleshy coffee, dark chocolate and molasses. Malts add a firm bitterness right up front, and then spin together - washer style - with chocolate, molasses and coffee. Coffee is well roasted and boarding on charred. Mouth feel is a touch watery and thin, with a very light velvety texture showing up as the beer warms. It has a medium thickness. Overall, roasty, nutty and coffee forward, making it a tasty, easy drinking dark beer.

Served in a 15.5oz Speigalau tulip from a 12oz can.

On tap at The Good Life in Massapequa, NY... Solid coffee porter action here - runs toward the bittersweet and dry end of the spectrum - lots of dry char and roast and coffee bean, with sweetness flashing up front but getting back in line as the beer finishes with bitter dry roasty coffee and char... Medium-weight, leaning toward the lighter end, smooth...

On tap at Applebee’s in Dover. Pours a jet black ebony hue with maximum frothing. Assertive aroma replete with hints of cocoa and chocolate. Similar overall flavor profile.

How have I never rated this delight of a coffee porter? In any case, this is from a batch dated September 21, 2018, that I thought was their best yet. A touch of green on the nose, but commingled with plenty of the good stuff: dry roasted grains, light malt, earthy coffee, and a little baker's chocolate. No issue with the flavors once they hit the palate, just an exceptional balance between the base porter and the selected coffee.
