Served in a wedding snifter.
Oh, trust me, my eyes are wide open... Anyway, this stuff pours a straight onyx topped by a finger of sandstone-khaki foam. The nose comprises molasses, dark coffee, perfume, and a light bit of roasted malts. The taste brings in more of the same, with the coffee really coming through earthily and greenily. The body is a solid medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry-ish finish. Overall, a pretty nice coffee porter, nothing amazing but enjoyable enough for what it is.

A drinkable beer. Not the greatest, but better than expected.

Picked this up, assuming same beer having open eye on label and says coffee porter! Appears opaque black with light tan head that sticks around. Smells of coffee, roasted malt and a definable hop presence but has a lil alcohol on top. Taste is of coffee roasted malts and the hops smooth it out for a great finishing touch! Mouthfeel is so smooth and creamy went right into 2nd on my porter list! Just had me lapping for flavor for next couple minutes. Scott at east end I applaud you on a very delicate selection in a difficult field!
