look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pitch black with a light tan head.

Smells of molasses and blackberries to create an odd irony fruitiness. Ground coffee finds its way in.

Taste is metallic and strangely bitter. Dark fruits and yeast flavors repel each other while coffee additions remain constant. Aftertaste is more unwelcomed bitterness and char.

Medium bodied with smooth even carbonation.

Not in line with most delicious porters.

A - Very dark brown, tan head around 1 finger. Some minor lacing with little retention

S - Rich coffee aroma combines with milk chocolate. Some earthy hops to the finish.

T - Starts out with a nice chocolate and medium malty taste as expected. Solid taste of coffee, solid but not overwhelming.

M - Slick and velvety

O - It is exactly what you'd expect, well executed brew.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a wine goblet.
Dark brown in color, with a rather short head of tan foam.
Aroma-Cocoa and faint coffee note
Taste-Cocoa and black coffee,creamy with an underlying hop presence that leads to a reisinous bitter finish. Would be an excellent match for BBQ'd or grilled meats.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into pint glass.

Appearance; Pours a pitch-black with a two-finger tan head. Good amount of lacing left on the glass as I drink.

Smell: Chocolate nibs, roasty dark malts, coffee.

Taste: Chocolate, coffee, dark malts and sugars, light spices and a milky/creamy attribute to it. Definitely delicious, definitely resembles a mocha.

Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation with a heavy body, definitely a sipper, but with how good it is I don't know if I can simply sip it!

Overall: An excellent mocha/coffee like beer. My favorite now, Used to be from Sammy Adams Black N Brew, but this one definitely reigns supreme.
