12oz. bottle into shaker pint on 8/14/11.
A - A chocolate brown liquid emerged from the bottle with little effervescence and a wispy tan head that vanished, save for a sparse ring of retention around the edge of the glass, leaving no lacing behind.
S - Iced coffee, nutty fudge and vanilla comprise the aroma. The coffee character is apparent but not dominating, as with most coffee beers.
T - Vanilla comes to mind first, followed by an iced coffee aspect with a light to medium roast character. Cocoa and nutty notes add complexity and complement the coffee and vanilla flavors. Finishes with a tinge of earthy bitterness accompanied by a hint of nutty astringency.
M - Medium bodied, though a little thin in the backend, with an oily texture and fairly bristly carbonation. Bittersweet finish with mild astringency on the palate.
D - Very good coffee porter overall with plenty else going on besides coffee. Try one for breakfast.
