Coffee Porter

Brewmaster’s Notes

One of our most famous beers, and one of our oldest brands. This is one of two flavoured porters that we make: Coffee Porter uses coffee from Balzac’s Coffee, who was one of the other original tenants in the Distillery District along with us back in 2002. In a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup moment, we realized that their coffee tasted exquisite in our porter and the legend was born!

An award-winning beer with cult status! One of the original Mill Street creations, this rich and robust porter has an aroma of burned malt and dark roasted coffee. Notes of chocolate, coffee and toasty malt with a light bitterness. Made with real Balzac’s roasted coffee beans in every batch.
