4.53/5 rDev +12.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
appearance: Black as night on the pour but when held up to the light you can see a deep red. Very nice.
Smell: smells like burnt coffee, but not in an awesome way. Not bad, but not my favorite. Something a little funky as well, almost a little bit sour.
Taste: Wow. Far different from the smell. Beautiful, smooth, sweet coffee notes with a slight bitterness at the back that resembles black coffee more than beer. This is just awesome.
Mouthfeel: Medium-heavy in body with better carbonation than I expected.
Overall: I traded for this and was by FAR the most I've spent on a beer (after shipping costs about $9 for 12oz), and it was completely worth it. This is just fantastic.

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.

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.
