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

Appearance: poured into my engraved "stan" mug, a dark, translucent porter. not a lot of head left, but that's what i get for letting it sit to warm up a little in the mug.

smell: complicated roasted smell. reminiscent of a starbucks coffee with cream and sugar, mixed with roasted barley. not a lot of hops, but a hint of cream.

taste: tastes like a star bucks cappuccino mixed with a nice balanced porter. mostly coffee flavor (since i live on coffee, this is a big plus), but has a hint of roasted barley in the after taste.

mouthfeel: nice, smooth. not harsh like a coffee is (or should be). makes me want to keep sipping.

overall: this is not a beer for the faint of heart. since coffee is included in the recipe there IS caffeine in this beer. i had one before at 9pm and didn't fall asleep until 2, much to my dismay. this is probably not a bad beer to start your night off with if you have it available. that is unless you're a college student (not unlike myself) who will be downgrading to much less enjoyable beer...
stansylvania approved.

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

Poured into a fluted pint glass, color is deep dark brown to black, with a nice tan head 1/2 thick that lightly clings and hangs around.

Smell is more malt sweetness and hints of chocolate and roast than coffee.

Taste is very pleasant, excellent balanace of sweetness, roast, chocolate and great coffee flavor.

Mouthfeel is very well balanced for coffee beer, not too astringent or too sweet to hide the coffee roasted ness. Nice carbonation to keep the flavors hopping.

Overall, excellent coffee beer that still tastes great as its own porter.

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

A - Black with brown edges...1 inch thick head...quickly disappears...the edges are creamy white the whole way through...no real lacing...lots of carbonation...

S - Dark roasted malts, sweet creamy dark roast coffee, a bit of dark chocolate-cocoa, and just a hint of smoke...

T - All of the above with some sweet malt character...only a kiss of bitterness if any...most of the bitterness probably comes from the dark and roasted malts...possibly a hint of lactose and/or vanilla character...a bit of burnt coffee flavor (in the best possible way)...imagine a burnt chocolate chip cookie...overall a delicious flavor!

M - carbonation fades a bit from the pour...creamy...medium-heavy body...

O - A very tasty porter...I really like it! A great Philly seasonal for sure! If you see it try it! You will enjoy!

Cheers!

12oz bottle to pint glass.
Looks the part of a porter. Dark in color, small tan head with good retention. Smell is of roasted barley, dark chocolate and of course, coffee. The coffee flavor really stands out in the palate too. The roast reaches a near charred level but the brew is still balanced and drinkable. Mouthfeel is fluid with decent carbonation. This is an easy drinking coffee brew with alot of flavor.

Pours black with a tan head. Smells lightly of dark chocolate and pumpernickle, some hints of coffee, very light fruity smell hidden, sort of apples. Tastes of light coffee, cocoa, somewhat of a cola taste, nutty, pretzelly, slightly salty and bitter in the finish, even an odd hint of apples and pickles. Smooth, little carbonation so it flows so nice. Overall a really great brew, smooth and well made, great coffee beer. I could drink a bunch of these.
