Just brewed a coffee Porter that's WAY TOO coffee forward. It's already in keg and carbonated(guess tasting 1st would've helped but I'm kind of new). Is it ok to brew another batch of Porter without coffee and blend them together? If so how do I go about this?
Thanks in advance for any advice!!!

The intend coffee will fade with age.
I brewed a coffee stout a couple of years ago that was way too coffee forward. Forgot a bottle in the back of the fridge and tried it about 9 months later and it was perfect.

Let it sit a few months and the coffee will mellow out. Taste it once a month until it's where you want it. Once it is, go to town. A lot of things like coffee, vanilla, chocolate and hops fade with time.
