look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Poured from bottle into Hoppin Frog snifter. Date of review is 7/13/14.

Appearance- Pours a deep dark brown color. Like the kind of brown that is borderline black. Super creamy looking cardboard brown head. Lacing is amazing for a porter.

Smell- WOW! Peanut butter and chocolate are dominating everything else. I do get coffee in the nose too, but much less than the two first scents. It smells exactly like Reese's Pieces.

Taste- Not like the nose at all. So much more coffee and just as much chocolate. The peanut butter is now taking a backseat to the other flavors. Not quite as good as the nose had indicated.

Mouthfeel- Just a bit too thin for the style. I wish the peanut butter and chocolate flavors coated my tongue and throat more, but that's just not the case. The beer disappears as soon as you take a sip.

Overall- Very good offering from one of the best breweries on the planet. You just have to respect the things Hoppin Frog does. They are never boring, always experimental and producers of sought- after beers.

A- very dark brown, almost black in color. Lacing is minimal with a small amount of head that doesn't stick around long.

S- very strong coffee smell as soon as you open the bottle. Once poured into the glass the coffee smell gives way to dark chocolate with a hint of peanut butter. One of the best smelling beers I've come across.

T- roasted coffee beans upfront that give way to chocolate notes and a swirl of peanut butter.

M- Seems like adding peanut butter has solved the dilemma of the thin porter. There is an almost creaminess to this that is very enjoyable.

O- Hoppin' Frog crushed it with Infusion A. The balance of these three flavor profiles really sets this beer apart from any other coffee porter I've had. I still can't get over how amazing this beer smells! I look forward to future Tower Tuesday releases.

A - pours out nice and dark with a bit of head that was fighting to stick around. No lacing to speak of.
S - amazing coffee nose on this one. Smells like you're sticking your nose into a bag of freshly ground beans. One of the best I've ever smelled.
T - coffee definitely jumps out in front. A bit of a bitter aftertaste which is where you can taste the peanut butter and chocolate which the beans were roasted in.
M - being a huge fan of stouts, I'm always looking for a brew that completely covers and films my mouth, but for a porter it does alright.
O - this beer is outstanding. Tops in my books in the smell category and the taste is excellent as well. Great job Hoppin' Frog! Keep em coming!

Pours dark brown with good clarity. The aroma had chocolate, coffee, Choco banana. The taste has loads of delicious chocolate and coffee intertwined with nuts, vanilla and faint tree fruit. The sweetness is delicious working well with the roast. No hint of abv. Smooth all day and totally delicious.
