Clear auburn with a decent beige foamy head, dropping to a nice, permanent covering. Smells like fruity coffee, cocoa, and caramel malt. Flavor is mostly coffee roast as well with a little vanilla and honey backing it up. Fluffy carbonation and drying finish. Pretty tasty little coffee porter...the bright coffee doesn't taste overly stale and the solid porter base still comes through.

Color is a nice reddish woody shade, fairly clear but just about too dark to tell for sure. Aroma strikes initially as caramel hazelnut, cocoa, and medium roast coffee with fruity nuttiness. Smells and tastes like a light fluffy coffee porter. Fairly dry chocolate with high cocoa levels. Caramel integrated evenly throughout adding chewy texture. Carbonation is right where it should be.

Appearance - Pours a dark auburn brown with a light tan finger width head. Fair retention results in a broken layer of surface suds and a fair ring around the edge of the glass. Virtually no lacing.

Smell - Cold-pressed coffee with lesser notes of caramel and chocolate.

Taste - Sweet upfront with strong notes of caramel and hints of toffee. Coffee flavors hit mid-taste along with faint notes of dark chocolate. Fair amounts of coffee roast bitterness in the finish along with hints of Rogue's signature pacman yeast character add up to a lightly fruity and bittersweet aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with a fair amount of carbonation. Smooth finish.

Overall - Really nice balance and with a great flavor profile. The problem with coffee-infused brews is that they all taste good. It's a hard style to mess up, but perhaps even harder to make one stand out. This brew doesn't quite completely break away from the pack, but there are some distinguishing qualities that make this worthy to try. From what I understand, this one is exclusive to Whole Foods markets. Seek and destroy!

A: Pours a hazy just shy of opaque mahogany in color with light amounts of active visible carbonation slowly rising along the edges of the glass and moderate amounts of reddish brown highlights. The beer has a finger tall dense foamy dark tan head that slowly reduces to a very thick film covering the entire surface of the beer evenly with a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of a lightly roasted coffee bean with some light aromas of toasted and caramel malts. Hints of cocoa.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of toasted and caramel malts with a hint of toffee sweetness and just the slightest note of roasted malts. That is followed by moderate to slightly stronger than moderate flavors lightly roasted coffee that gives a moderate amount of bitterness to the beer which lingers for quite a while.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: Kind of on the lighter side for a porter, not a rich with the roasted malt flavors aromas but that is somewhat made up for by the inclusion of the coffee. Very enjoyable and easy to drink though it does carry quite a bit of coffee-like bitterness.

Poured into a standard pint. Deep, deep brown with a tinge of caramel-red. Khaki head, short but held. Aroma is immediately of a medium roast coffee with some vanilla backing, maybe some b=very light chocolate notes. Taste is a fairly carbon copy of eh aroma: coffee up front, vanilla across the palate, with a slightly sweet caramel finish. Not much alcohol in the back. If a coffee profile is what is desired, this will deliver. The traditional porter flavors are of course over shadowed by the coffee, but this does state right on the bottle that it is a coffee porter. And that it is. Personally, I drink a lot of coffee, so I definitely enjoyed this.

A: Dark brown with caramel hues. Cream-colored half inch head. Wispy lacing.

S: Coffee beans seem to be of a lighter roast. very nuanced aromas of earthy and fruity beans with a kiss of smoke and sweet toffee. Caramel, toffee, and a pinch of cocoa from the malt. Orange zest from the hops.

T: Taste follows. Hard to tell where the malts end and the beans begin. Lightly smokey, fruity, toffee, caramel, cocoa. Orange zest hop flavors pick up toward the back. Coffee beans are front and center on the finish with light smoke, roast, red fruit, and toffee.

M: Body is on the lighter side of medium. Creamy and silky in texture. Carbonation scrubs briskly. Moderate astringency from hops and coffee.

O: A very complex and nuanced coffee porter. It favors the connoisseur of fine coffee who can really appreciate the intricacies of the beans used.
