About This Beer
The term ‘liquid gold’ gets bandied about a lot, but nothing encapsulates the phrase more than Smog City’s Coffee Porter. That’s because the brew combines java, beer, and a GABF gold medal!
That’s right, the craft crew won the illustrious prize with a stunning libation doused in three pounds of fresh, locally-roasted coffee per barrel!
The pitch-black pour unleashes a bouquet of cafe-worthy, freshly-pulled espresso aromas. Cozy sips follow with layers of toasted malt for smooth baker’s chocolate nuances, rounding the bitter edges into one creamy, cafe-worthy concoction. The result is like sipping an iced, triple-shot mocha!
Roasty Malty Rich Bold Coffee Inspired Award Winning
The first one tasted like garbage, the second one was incredible and worth every penny. I'll blame my mood because I loved the second bottle.
It’s a coffee porter, nothing special
smells heavenly - like standing in a delicious coffee shop - the taste is lacking however
Decent porter. Nothing too special, but Smog City has always found a way to be consistent end really nail that is past coffee taste!
Really nice smooth porter for sure, glad I chose it.
Pure coffee with porter bite
Roasty, Coffee, Malty and Smooth
Great stuff. Not sweet- a compliment. Would love to see what other dark stuff they've got.
Strong coffee taste, but smooth. Good beer.
Should be higher rated here! As bottle description notes, this is a coffee beer, not a beer with coffee. And it shows. Like a spiked cold brew. Not getting much chocolate, though, but it doesn't need it.
Very espresso, very porter, very delicious. The 12 oz went down in 5 minutes.
Chocolate dipped espresso beans in beer form
Tastes and smells like a shot of espresso. Like sucking on a raw coffee bean. No chocolate. Weird aftertaste.
Nice coffee flavors, not too thick. Better colder.
The best coffee porter I've ever had. Love the bold coffee taste. Can't even tell its alcoholic! Wouldn't recommend for noncoffee lovers, its definitely something only people who love coffee would enjoy, but luckily I love coffee so it was amazing!!
Delicious from the first to last sip...I wish I could keep this in my fridge all year long!
Really nice coffee flavor with a hint of chocolate.
chocolate-y coffee porter. in that order. maybe a bit too much chocolate??
as it says on the can, “this is a coffee beer not a beer with coffee”!
loved this!! deep dark, roast, coffee....would do this again
thinner then I’d like but solid coffee flavor. reminds me of the BA is ticking clock from them
Barely translucent cola brown color. Large, firm tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, fresh brewed coffee and cacao powder. Lovely bittersweet essence of dark roasted coffee and chocolate malt. Soft on palate. The roasted malt and coffee characteristics are completely merged to produce a singular complexity of flavor. My two favorite beverages are married into one. Absolute heaven.
