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.

One year old can purchased from Beers of the World in Rochester, NY.
Pours a dark, opaque brown color. A lighter brown mocha-colored head forms, about one inch, with nice strings of lacing down the glass.
Aromas include dark roasted malt, strong nutty coffee, chocolate, all sorts of great rich things on the nose.
The flavor is similar. The coffee flavor is quite prominent, and pretty intense- it's of the bitter and nutty variety, with a bit of sweetness near the end that's reminiscent of hazelnut. The roasted malt also provides a nice bitterness, with some dark chocolate as well- cocoa powder like, and mild. No real hop flavor.
Medium bodied, very creamy, low carbonation.
A great baltic porter, and a truly great use of coffee here, it stands tall.

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.
