A: Black with a smallish head that fades somewhat quickly leaving little trace behind.

S: coffee, roasted malt. The coffee aroma is not as big as I had hoped for.

T: Again, the coffee is not nearly as grandiose as I would like. The roast flavor is also somewhat subdued. The flavors are indeed tasty but mild - too mild, in my opinion.

M: Smooth and easy to drink, for sure. The body is too thin.

D: A beer I enjoyed and wouldn't mind having again, though it is not one of my favorite coffee brews.

a classic porter in my world. i love this beer. it pours what appears to be a nearly black color, but upon a hold up to the light, a faint crimson fire is burning at the bottom, nearly extinguished. big bubbled tan head rests atop. the nose is bitter dark malts and fresh coffee beans, unbrewed. the flavor is really roasty, malt first. the mocha element is complementary only, dark cocoa and black coffee. its a nice mix, nice balance. feel is perhaps a tad overcarbonated. i like my porters mellow, so this might be a personal thing, but its borderline soda pop. still, velvety medium body, not heavy for a porter, and a sessionable alcohol level. really nice stuff, especially in fall time. might use this in my chilli next time i make a pot.

poured from bottle to sniffer, looks like weak drip brewed coffee, ok head that diminished to a lace that stayed till the beer was gone. Smelled of chocolate malts and coffee. the taste was that of black coffee with chocolate syrup added. i like this beer alot this is number five of six so drinkability is up there.

Appearance: Pours dark with tan head. Fairly minimal lacing, there was some that stuck around the edges of the glass.

Smell: Definite mocha and cocoa smell with some dark, roasted malts.

Taste: I loved this flavor. Very noticeable chocolate flavor hits first, followed by coffee, with maybe just a hint of vanilla at the end.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth finish. Not too heavy and very drinkable.

Overall: Pretty good porter. I would have it again, for sure.
