BEER INFO

Brewed by:

Mississippi, United States
crookedletterbrewing.com

Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
When the lights dim, the curtains pull back, and the Beledi starts, it is time for a Mystery Romp! This mocha colored ale, infused with chocolate and coffee, can best be described as a tasteful dance between a robust Porter and a rich stout.

This is the best beer I have ever had in my life. Perfect blend of chocolate and coffee, and an outstanding aroma

One if the best beers I've ever had. Tons of coffee up front with waves of chocolate on the back end. Do yourself a favor and drink it up.

I don't want it to seem like I'm blowing smoke here, but Romp is just about as close to perfect as you can get in my book. This is an extremely complex and well crafted beer.
I'll admit, It took me a little while to get on this band wagon. I was able to see the beauty of this beer, because it kept leaving me wanting more after each tasting.

Pours a beautiful dark brown/black color with a very creamy tan head. The head retention and lacing with this brew are phenomenal.
The nose is comprised of fabulous touches of roasted malts & chocolate.
The taste of this Porter is very complex with traces of coffee, chocolate, caramel. It's robust and extremely filling, but will leave you wanting many more glasses. It doesn't seem to drag me down like many dark beers do.
The Mouthfeel is exactly what you should expect from a well crafted Porter/Stout... comforting, relaxing

Thank you Crooked Letter and keep up the great work.
Drink this beer people!

Classified as a porter but with a taste somewhere between a robust porter and a rich stout, this beer has a great taste that balances a strong coffee overtone with mocha undertones to create a bittersweet beer. This beer has a great mouth feel and a pleasant aftertaste that left me wanting more

Had on-tap at Bulldog mid-city New Orleans. Served in a pint glass.

A- Pours a fully opaque black color with a 1/4 inch head that doesn't last long.

S- Full-on chocolate/coffee goodness with some vanilla and caramel sweetness.

T- Excellent blend of coffee, chocolate and dark roast. So drinkable, borderline decadent.

M- Thick and semi-creamy. Medium carbonation and a full body.

O- Had to do a brief review cuz this guy at the bar was talking my ear off. Fantastic brew though. One of the best coffee beers I've had and that's saying something cuz I've had some of the best (WnB, FB MBCP and CCB Cubano Espresso to name a few).

Served out of the tap in my kitchen.
Pours very dark brown with a dark tan head that hangs on for a while.
Smell is dominated by coffee, but also some dark chocolate. Delicious.
Taste is like the smell. Unlike some beers with a big coffee nose, the coffee does not disappear in the taste. Also some dark chocolates that contribute to a very slight twang of bitterness at the finish.
Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. low carbonation. Feels like a big beer; makes you realize that Porter and Stout are not just brothers but fraternal twins.
Overall: another fantastic beer from a new brewery right here in South Mississippi. Just like their Stabello Italian Lager, this beer could stand up tall anywhere in America.
Looking forward to serving this to friends.
