    Harpoon Brewery is reportedly collaborating with Dunkin' Donuts to release a new beer this fall.

    The release date is scheduled for sometime around late October or early November, which is a popular time for coffee beers, The Boston Globe reported.

    The beer will be called Dunkin' Coffee Porter and will be bottled and canned in Dunkin's purple and orange colors. The beverage, which will be classified as a flavored malt beverage, will be brewed with Dunkin' coffee and have a 6 percent alcohol-by-volume content, according to the Globe.

    Harpoon reportedly plans to distribute the Dunkin' Coffee Porter around the region.

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.

    This partnership is the second time Dunkin' Donuts has worked with a brewery, with the first being Worcester-based Wormtown Brewery.
