22oz bomber purchased at Huckleberry’s in Spokane for $6.49. According to the label, this was made with Evans Brothers Artisan Coffee. I’m guessing that’s a coffee roaster indigenous to the Sandpoint area. Also according to the label, this was bottled on August 30.
Poured a super dark brown that defied all attempts to pass light through it. Big, mocha-colored head that receeded after a few minutes. Lots of lace.
There’s a coffee-ish aroma, but it’s not a big, overbearing one, and it shares the limelight with some chocolate and brown sugar notes.
The taste starts off with a bitter coffee zap, but it’s quickly matched by a sweet, chocolaty note that keeps the bitterness in check. There’s also a bit of pipe tobacco in the background. Things finish with a mild dry note.
The body of this beer is between medium and full, leaning more towards full. The carbonation is spot-on. Thick, sticky and creamy mouthfeel.
Laughing Dog scores another home run with a very tasty, coffee-infused porter that seems like a slam dunk for the fall, yet it seems it was released in the summer. I would definitely drink this again, but I’m glad I waited until October, as it just seems a better fit.

22 ounce bottle -> Dogfish Head Glass
A - dark black pour with a towering foamy caramel colored head, world class retention, and world class lacing.
S - coffee, chocolate, roasted notes, and dark fruit.
T - sweet vanilla and molasses, chocolate and a burnt wood and coffee finish. Alcohol is hidden very well.
M - good carbonation, very thick, bit of an aftertaste
O - good but not spectacular.

On draft at Churchkey in D.C.
The beer is near black with a small beige collar. The aroma offers a robust coffee nose with dark chocolates. Decent flavor, with bitter chocolates, finishing dry. Medium in body with light carbonation. Overall, this is decent, but not a repeat for me.
