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

Porter brewed with coffee. Served it to myself in a pint glass. Freshest by 02/01/2013 (so, not entirely fresh).

Very dark cola brown with a light sepia head. Crowned at a humble half-inch and stuck as a dense third of an inch. Looks creamy.

Husky grain, dark roastiness, and only a hint of coffee in the nose. Some lax tinniness that I can't really explain. Smells somewhat similar to Yuengling Porter, not that that's a bad thing. Just was expecting a sweeter and more robust aroma.

Mild coffee gets mostly drowned out by dark roasty malts and a burnt nuttiness. Light hints of dark fruits. Backdrop of dry toffee. The whole flavor profile is rather dry. It's still hearty and almost savory with brothy elements surfacing here and there. Could definitely use some more brawn, and a sweetness might bring out the additives more. I can't help but think this letdown is a product of its age.

Drinks with upped carbonation. The body is on the thin side. It's not really satisfying me on this chilly and rainy March evening.

Merely ok. I need to get my mitts on a fresher bottle and do a re-review, proper. Until then, folks...
