Ocean Beach, CA
Nearly black yet dark brown. Mocha head. Consistent lacing down the glass.
Lots of coffee and some chocolate in the nose along with some sea salt.
Lots of coffee, chocolate, earthy elements, and hops in the flavor, though still remarkably balanced and incredibly drinkable. The coffee is definitely the star of the show, but it's not at all overpowering.
Medium bodied. Incredibly drinkable.
A wonderful imperial coffee porter. It's balanced, yet highlights both coffee and chocolate along with enough hop bitterness to balance things out. This is a great imperial porter.

Appearance: Pours a ruby-tinted dark brown with good clarity. Two fingers of head rises, but doesn't last long.
Smell: A ton of earthy coffee up front, with notes of toasted almond and cocoa powder beneath the onslaught of coffee. The coffee lends a touch of spiciness, dark berries and carob. This is reminiscent of Founders Breakfast Stout, but with a coffee character that feels more complex and robust, and malt dialed down a bit.
Palate: Coffee first and foremost, which has an earthy, fruity and faintly spicy quality to it. A full, roasty, slightly acidic malt foundation supports the coffee nicely. There's a touch of semi-sweet dark chocolate, almond and carob in the mid-palate. Sweetness is reigned-in for the supposed 8.5ish % ABV. The body is a sturdy medium, leaning more toward full than thin.
Overall: What a great beer. Easily in the upper echelon of coffee beers. I suppose that should come as no surprise coming from this brewery.

T: Follows the nose with a char and faint vanilla note.
M: Medium to full bodied. Creamy and dreamy.
O: Goodness gracious, this is delicious.

Big thanks to yourefragile for bringing this growler over. Served in a Mikasa tulip.
Pours a dark brown color that borders on black with a small off-white head that diminishes fairly quickly, leaving some sparse lacing as it falls.
The nose brings a good amount of chocolate and roast plus a good dose of coffee. Really, really nice coffee in the nose; it smells light fresh coffee beans. Very smooth and creamy. The flavor has more chocolate and coffee, but isn't quite as well matched. Light sweetness and bitterness.
Body is full and nice creamy. Carbonation is light, leading to a smooth finish without any noticeable alcohol.
Overall this was a big winner. A nice surprise growler that I was more than happy to partake in.

A: The pour on this one is almost black with a creamy off-white head.
S: The nose offers up huge coffee and roasted malt aromas with a nice dark chocolate note in there as well. A very mild licorice scent and a decent amount of molasses. Maybe a hint of smoke and brown sugar.
T: As expecting, nice coffee flavor that lasts almost all the way through. There is a mild caramel sweetness to go with the molasses and dark brown sugar notes. Heavy on the roasted malts and dark chocolate.
M: The body is edium to full with a medium carbonation.
O: This was a really good beer. Bold coffee and roast flavors, but not overwhelming.
