I made a coffee porter earlier this year. I used just under two pots of Wegman's mocha java (ground at home) using a normal drip coffee maker added during secondary. It came out excellent after ~3 weeks of conditioning in a bottle. But as time went on, the coffee flavor became more and more pronounced. I still like it a lot, but other people like it less now. It was originally a "wow! that is amazing!", but now people have backed off.
Next time, I'll use less coffee.
