look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: This porter pours a black color and is topped with 1” of tan colored head that has great retention.
Smell: The roastiness of this porter is very evident once you pour and the coffee just blasts your nose like a gun.
Taste: The taste is not quite what I was expecting it has a bit of coffee flavor but it lacks in any depth, there is just nothing else there like I was hoping.
Mouthfeel: It is a bit thin bodied but it makes it easy drinking, too bad the flavor lacks.

Appearance - dark, no light coming through and pours with an inch thick head. No lacing which would have given it higher rating.

Smell - coffee, coffee, coffee.... Rich bitter coffee is all over this one!

Taste - rich smooth bitter coffee. Almost a cold espresso beer and delicious.

Mouthfeel - malty rich that leaves you tongue with a iced coffee type flavor

Overall - wow is this a great coffee beer. Quite delicious. Glad I got to try this one via a trade!

The Devil Made Me Do It poured a black hole into my snifter. This beer does not let one bit of light shine through. I think it's actually making the room darker. A one finger tan head formed and quickly fell to a thick ring of head with a floating island of chunk. Leaves chunky lacing after each sip. This is one of those beers that looks like it'll be packed with flavor.

This beer smells great. Mounds of the finest freshly ground coffee beans greet the nose. Roasted malts are there along with a shot of cream and 2 cubes of sugar. Smells like a quality freshly brewed cup of coffee.

Again, a freshly brewed cup of coffee as soon as this beer hits the tongue. Mild vanilla and cream add a nice sweetness that accompanies the coffee perfectly. Moderate coffee bitterness on the swallow that's always welcome.

Creamy mouthfeel from the addition of oatmeal. Actually has a little prickliness in there that awakens the tongue and really lets the flavors take hold.

This is a highly drinkable beer. I can see myself drinking this anytime of the day whether it's with breakfast or after dinner.

Tyranena makes some great beers and this is no exception. A porter that's missing the porter aspect and filled with roasty delicious coffee.

A-Black in the glass and while pouring. One finger off white head.

S-Woah. Loads of coffee, balanced out with oats and roasted malt. Slight dark chocolate.

T-Starts with lots of coffee, has roasted malt and oats. Dark chocolate is very slight. Mild bitterness in the finish.

M-Medium bodied, smooth yet a tad creamy.

O-Another solid BGW beer from them. Can't believed I waited so long to pick up a bottle. Easily worth a try.

12oz. bottle poured into a De Struise Cervoise. (Thanks to GHB for the extra!)

Appearance: Dark brown a nice 1" head that recedes to cap, nice lacing.

Smell: Roasted coffee lots of roasted coffee.

Taste: Very rich for a porter, a nice surprise. Strong roasted coffee with a hint of chocolate.

Mouthfeel: Pleasantly smooth, well carbonated, again good body especially for a porter, and clean on the palate.

Overall: This was a very, very, good coffee porter. Very enjoyable with a nice creamy consistency.
