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.

20oz pint (wow) at the Underground - Big Rock glass represent!
This beer appears a clear, very dark brown, verging on black, with rather pervasive red cola highlights, and a thin cap of bubbly, fizzy beige head, which leaves some decent loosely webbed lace around the glass as it evenly subsides.
It smells of edgy black coffee grounds, bittersweet chocolate, roasted caramel malt, subtle anise notes, and leafy, earthy hops. The taste is semi-sweet toasted bready caramel malt, fairly sugared mocha, slightly acrid black licorice, a hint of wet stone, and earthy, weedy hops.
The bubbles are pretty sedate, just a wee twinge here and there, the body a sturdy medium weight, and as smooth as a percolating morass of coffee will get you. It finishes on the sweet side, the caramel malt going all clammy, while the coffee submits to its milky side, and the earthiness of the hops toys with the burgeoning booze.
A decent enough coffee porter, the cafe essences, chocolate, and somewhat sour lactic character duly coming through. What doesn't, however, is the apparently big ABV, one not listed here, as the Laughing Dog tap takeover has failed to make it to this bar's tap lists or bartenders' current canon. That, and at $10+ for the glass, it's hardly worth it around here.
