Sampled several times at the Blues and Brews Fest in Akron on Saturday. This was one of the standouts of the fest imo. Their regular Old Leghumper porter was being poured through a 4 foot tall tower filled to the brim with whole fresh coffee beans. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted some.
This beer loses most of its head whilst passing through all that coffee, but no matter, the dark brew still exhibited a tight cap of roasty peanut shell colored foam for a bit.
Smelled outstanding. As you'd imagine, it was just like shoving my nose into a bag of fresh coffee beans at the grocery store - and I always have thought that the beans smelled better than boiled coffee anyways. It was sweet, with mild vanilla notes which I was unsure about whether that was attributable to the coffee or the base beer.
Coffee explosion, but nothing overpowering. The porter underneath all those beans lends some nice roast and bitterness.
Smooth with understandably low carbonation.
Overall I really loved this. I'd be extremely greatful to see this mass produced some day. Well done TD.
Serving type: on-tap
