3.81/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12oz slim can similar to the Red Bull Cans. 4-pack in a box purchased for $9.99.

A- Pours a very dark brown that appears an opaque black in the glass with a little over a quarter finger of mocha head that recedes at an average pace leaving behind thin layered lacing. Decent fairly slow rising carbonation that has decent consistency.

S- Espresso, sweet malts, light dark chocolate that blends right in with the espresso, hint of licorice. Well balanced, fairly aromatic, pleasant but not the most pleasant baltic porter I've smelled.

T- Sweet caramel malts, bitter dark chocolate, finishes with creamy espresso, a hint of booze, and more bitter chocolate. Lingering aftertaste of bitter chocolate, caramel, and a bit of espresso. Fairly malty and a little bit more bitter then I was expecting.

M- A little bit thin considering the abv, decent carbonation, fairly drinkable considering the abv.

O- This beer didn't impress me as much as I was hoping it would, but for the price it's extremely hard to beat. It was a bit too bitter for me and slightly on the thin side. The coffee and chocolate wasn't as robust as I was hoping it would be. That being said for $2.50/can this beer is one of the best for it's price range. I'd recommend trying it out.

One of the base beers in my recent trade with madnismo, shared one of these tonight with my Tuesday night friends.

2 finger tan head... pretty good retention and okay lacing atop a very dark brown beer that still shows nice ruby highlights at the stem.

Nose is an enticing mix of cocoa, coffee and hints of oaky vanilla.. dark caramel sugary essence helps carry and marry the aromas.

Bigger vanilla bloom on the palate that doesn't show in the nose... plenty of cocoa, coffee is lesser than the nose... dark roasty malts also don't show as much as expected... a sorta nutty malt moves in with the vanilla/caramel mash-up and produces an easy drinking brew.

Body is surprisingly light given the 10%... good carbonation, but still thick and coating... very drinkable... deceiving.

Thanks again Nathan for the great trade.

All 3.75's

look: 4.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Tried this 4/1/14, so my review my be a lot lower than most.

A: beautiful dark brown, with nice 2 finger tan head
S: nice sweetness, tabacco smell, not getting the coffee nor chocolate that most people describe
T: taste like it smells, no coffee, very little chocolate, solid porter, little boozy
MF: great part of this beer! great carb, nice and light on the tounge
O: A pretty solid beer. doesnt taste or drink like 10%, but it is really good. I am sure it was better fresh with the huge coffee arome and flavor people describe. Would have liked to get this fresh, but what can you do. very solid though!

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.75

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.
