At the Porter House in New Hope, PA. Poured a nice mahogany brown, with a finger of tan head, good retention, and great lacing. Smelled of cappuccino coffee, with a hint of bittersweet chocolate. The flavor was intensely cappuccino flavored, with a dry coffee bean/bittersweet finish. Smooth, and on the medium to thick side. This is a great sipping beer; tasted very similar to Berkshire Brewing Co's CoffeeHouse Porter, if you are familiar with that beer. Definitely the best of the three PBC beers I tried that day.
Serving type: on-tap

single from the Beer Shoppe, Ardmore
a: twelve oz bottle into a Hilliard’s can glass, the beer is black in color, initially showing a thin but full coating of mocha carbonation that falls to only a thin ring
s: a very nice aroma of cold-brewed dark roast coffee sits very well forward here, supported further by malty aromas of chocolate roast and nutty toasted sugars and toffee, the malts mostly hidden at first but showing themselves with warmth, mostly benign hops
m: carbonation on the low to moderate end, medium bodied
t: the palate blends smooth, cold-roasted dark coffee with some sweet malt notes of toffee and nuts, dark chocolate hitting midway with a grassy hop cleaning things up and providing a milder bitter end, again the coffee stars here from start to finish, lingers long
o: the coffee flavor is very well executed - fresh and vivid, and the base beer supports it well
