Poured into an Evolution Brewing pint glass.
A- Pours a dark, dark almost opaque brown with a full inch of off-white head that retains a bit before slipping down to an 1/8 inch ring around the edge of the glass. A good amount of surface foam and minimal lacing.
S- Dark, roasted espresso with plenty of chocolate and caramel notes. Smells just like the way I enjoy my iced coffee. The espresso becomes more apparent when the glass is swirled and the carbonation is released.
T- Just as amazing as the first time I ever had it on tap. Heavy espresso that gives way to sweet chocolate in a pure and fully balanced delivery. Slightly bitter finish with hints of caramel, cinnamon, raisin and rice pudding (as the label suggests for a food pairing).
M- Thick, creamy and chewy. Medium-high carbonation.
O- Cigar City. Reinventing beer one project at a time.

Appearance is a clear dark brown color with a half finger head.
Aroma is incredible. Roasted coffee beans, and roasty malt. Maple bacon coffee porter aroma minus the syrupy maple smell.
Taste is sweet at first but dark roasted coffee dominates after that. Maybe some bittersweet chocolate flavors as well.
Mouthfeel is thin but the coffee flavor does linger slightly on the back end.
This is a great alternative to an after dinner coffee. The body is thin enough to not put you over the edge. The carbonation is there but not too much.
Nicely done and I'm thankful I got to try it.
