Dark Horse Brewing Co. Perkulator - Kind of an odd mash of coffee & double bock. I'm not a fan of bocks normally, but I am a huge coffee fan, so it worked for me. The coffee is definitely prevalent, as is a bit of cocoa on the aftertaste. Because I'm not a bock guy, the coffee slightly overshadowing the sweetness of the malt was a good thing. I would drink this beer again nod

Stone Kona Coffee Macadamia Coconut Porter - picked this up the other day along with some DB. I really liked this beer. The macadamia and coconut were more apparent on the nose than the tongue (and smelled delicious), though I did catch a bit of the coconut sweetness to balance out some of the overall tartness. The coffee taste in this was wonderful, as was the flavor & mouthfeel of the base porter itself. Good stuff, I'm very glad they didn't go crazy with the macadamia & coconut. I will drink this beer again nod
Malt does more than Milton can to justify God's ways to man

An intelligent man is sometimes forced to be drunk to spend time with his fools.
