4.28/5 rDev +6.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
A: Poured from a 12oz. can into a pint glass. Thick, creamy, near-opaque and dark-brown in color with a tight-knit, 1-finger beige head. A touch of lacing down the glass.
S: Malty up-front, with a lager sentiment and strong, but balanced notes of mocha coffee and earth. Some boozy fermentation smell on the back-end. I was expecting to get socked in the face with the aromas of coffee, chocolate and hooch (given the 10%abv,) but am pleasantly surprised at how relatively smooth and balanced it smells.
T: Complexity abounds in this robust and sweet beer. It hits right off with a coffee malt front, and swallows with an earthy, chocolate-covered cherry cordial flavor. A good amount of booze in the flavor, but I find it more appealing in this brew than usual. Perhaps because the hotness of the booze is tempered by the dry cocao flavors, or the gritty coffee notes. Touches of vanilla, dark chocolate milkshake, and dirt in the flavor really keep it mellower than anticipated. This beer has a lot going on, flavor-wise, but it does it in the perfect balance to be delicious.
M: A strange mix of syrup and chalk. The syrupy sweetness is on the tongue when the beer is in your mouth, but the beer finishes with an almost chalk-like texture on the swallow and afterfeel. It must be the cocao husks that lend this feel.
O: This is a great once-in-a-while beer, which packs a lot of flavor and a complexity of character to boot. I'm usually not one for "flavored" beer, or even beer brewed with flavoring agents other than hops, but this one really does it right. A trip to the jungle of flavor in your mouth!

A - Jet black, nice 2 finger tan colored head that settles to a cap that stays and laces the glass on the way down.
S - Amazing! Coffee, chocolate, earthy burnt notes. Chocolate really pops in the nose more as it warms.
T - Balanced, of all the coffee beers I've had this one brings the most balance. Coffee and chocolate are both there, both imparting bitterness. Char notes work themselves in and a sweetness to malt body round it out. It finishes with some bitterness from the coffee and chocolate and some hop flavor that comes out in the finish.
M - Smooth, lighter in body than you'd expect, some sharp carbonation that is unexpected but works and a rather dry finish.
O - I'm going to miss this beer. Sixpoint, bring this back! This is an amazing coffee/chocolate porter that hides it's 10% punch. It's balanced, it's different and it's amazing.

3.03/5 rDev -24.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3
Pours dark brown with ruby highlights. Has a one finger tan head, with good retention and spotty lacing. The aroma has dark roasted malt, cocoa, and coffee.
The first thing I tasted is burnt coffee, which is mot pleasant. There is also cocoa and dark roasted malt. Not very complex or special.
Medium bodied with average carbonation, and a burnt, bitter coffee aftertaste. Nothing special here. Glad I only picked up a single can.
