this beer is no longer retired apparently... 12oz on tap at town hall tap

look is a dark red amber, almost black with a silky tan half finger head. smell is coffee grounds, cocoa powder, and dates. taste follows, dry and powdery medium feel is the highlight of the drink

tasty porter with milk stout characteristics, the dak fruit I could do without, but the velvety malts more than make up for it. reccomended.

Enjoyed this beer numerous times at the Town Hall Tap in S. Minneapolis.

Deep brown verging on black with only a moderate taste. There's an olfactory coffee roaster going on. The coffee taste is strong, but unlike so many coffee stouts I've had, these guys know how to do coffee beer. A little bit thin on the mouthfeel and perhaps a little long on carbonation, but all in all this is great stuff.

By the way, the Pretzels at THT: Best. Appetizer. Ever.

This beer arrived a dark brown, nearly black color. The head is half an inch in height, and recedes slowly leaving rings of lacing down the glass. The aroma is of roasted malt, coffee, and milk chocolate. The taste is similar to the aroma. It is very well balanced between the roasted malt and the coffee with the chocolate component twisting through everything. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a silky texture, and appropriately moderate carbonation. Overall, this is a very well crafted beer. I will surely be making this a regular when I'm drinking at Town Hall Tap.

A- This beer looks terrific. Thick off white head atop a black beer. Head retention and lacing are amazing,

S- Coffee.

T- Coffee up front. Silky smooth. Just great. One of the best porters I've ever had. Oatmeal stout-y finsh.

M- Watery at first, the carbonation shows up at the end.

D/O- This is awesome. Best of both worlds, coffee and porter. I could just drink a ton of this.

First beer I had at the new Townhall taphouse. Served to me in a full 16oz nonic pint glass. Very nice!

Appearance- Pours a light brownish ruby with a nice one finger light tan head that has some serious staying power. A thick collar throughout with a nice cap but somehow no lacing remains.
Smell- A nice roasty malt and coffee scent waft beautifully from the glass. A lightly sweet toffee thing sort of shows as well. Actually has more of a Brown Ale scent with a touch of nuttiness. Reminds me slightly of Coffee Benders nose.
Taste- Nice fresh coffee aspect really dominates from the start with a perfect raw nutty bite. A touch of roast sneaks in but nothing that really resembles chocolate or the dark toast you'd expect from a Porter. Perhaps the lightest touch of pine from a kiss of hops in the finish but it's very light. The finish is smooth and full of coffee.
Mouthfeel- Medium to light body with a soft prickly carbonation.
Drinkability- Love this one. Perhaps it's a bit mute for a Porter but everything works great together. The coffee is nice and rich and really stands out. Great first beer to break in the taphouse!
