Enjoyed on-tap at Oblivion in Orlando. Pours a dark brownish black color with light tan head. The aroma is very faint which was disappointing. The taste picks up the pace with nice coffee and roasted malt notes. Overall, a solid imperial coffee porter.

It's back after a three year hiatus so I figured I'd revisit what I remember being a solid beer. Label states it's now brewed with their very own Stomping Ground Espresso.

Look- Pours a thin brown color with some frothy tan foam.

Smell- A bit of roast and a hint of smoke, not much else.

Taste- Dark chocolate, a little smoke, and a bit of oak.

Feel- A thin body and very dry finish.

Overall- A decent enough beer for under ten bucks, but I was a little let down by the lack of a giant coffee presence. Possibly the use of espresso imparted more dark chocolate and wood characteristics than coffee. If my memory serves me right, the last batch tasted more like iced coffee.

I tried this at the Two Brother's Roundhouse Cafe in Aurora, IL while waiting for a train. They had it on tap and served it in a pint glass.

The beer poured a dark brown color with just a thin tan rim for a head. It did produce a few rings of lacing.

The smell was a mix of chocolate and coffee with some vanilla underneath. There's some nice roasted malt in there as well.

Lots of dark roasted coffee flavor along with sweet chocolate and a touch of vanilla. Pretty much follows the nose.

Smooth and not quite medium in body with moderate carbonation.

Delicious.

Pours a mostly clear dark brown with light brown head settling to a thin ring, spray of lace on the glass. It's a nice baltic porter: mild roast, tons of black plum, some caramel and earthiness. Coffee character is lacking, or maybe it's intended for the espresso to blend in without standing out at all. Body is a little light for the style. Finish at least emphasizes roast and earth, fitting the "espresso is in this" line. Nice but not outstanding baltic porter; not terribly good coffee porter.
