By far the worst craft beer I've had. Would not wish this on my enemy. I've Never ever done this w any beer, but I actually dumped more than half of the bomber down the drain. I really tried to find something to like about it. Not sure how it won a medal. Maybe it was the only beer competing that year.

Appearance - Pours a dark cola brown. The head fades quickly, leaving a minimal lace.

Smell - A distinct but simple coffee aroma, with just a subtle hint of chocolate.

Taste - Like iced coffee after the ice has melted. Not much else. Nothing offensive, just a weak and simple flavor profile.

Mouthfeel - Light-to-medium body. Weak carbonation.

Overall - The best part of this beer is the aroma. After that, it's all downhill.

Overall the look and smell of this beer at its best attributes, but it is a very drinkable beer, just not something that has much complexity or intrigue. You get coffee and you get sweetness from the porter, but not much else. It is almost like drinking an Americano, it just happens to have alcohol in it.

Poured very dark brown from a 22oz bottle, with a light tan head. The first thing you notice is a very strong coffee and chocolate smell, which is very pleasant.

The taste is where this beer falls a little flat for me. The taste is good, as I like coffee, which is by far the dominant flavor, but the Kona coffee gives the beer an almost over-roasted bitter flavor, essentially what happens when you get some of the coffee grounds in your coffee. After that there is pretty much nothing to this beer, which was disappointing, but not bad.

If you are a coffee lover you will like/love this. If you want complex flavors that include coffee you will be disappointed. Overall I liked this beer, there is just nothing that is going to get me to come back for another.

Attractive reddish brown in the Leffe goblet. Modest head, but pleasant enough mouthfeel. Fairly sharp and thin. It doesn't taste very strong with alcohol.

A nice of blush of sweet malt on your lips with each taste. The coffee is definitely there, but not too strong. Tastes almost like it has coconut and a touch of vanilla. The aftertaste is just a little too much like bitter dishwater, however. A little sharp and spicy. Some burnt malt along with the bitter coffee twang.

From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Avenue Liquor in Coronado.
