On nitro tap at Ladyface Ale Companie in Agoura Hills, CA.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a khaki head that settles to dense cap on top of the beer. Foamy chunks of lace form on the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and coffee beans. Taste is very much the same but the flavors are somewhat muted. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a creamy mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good porter but it smells better than it tastes.

Serving type: nitro-tap

On tap @ Ladyface. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours black with a super fine, nitro induced, mocha head. Sprinkles of ground coffee placed on top from a shaker can.

N: Luscious coffee. Mildly like fresh espresso, but this could be from the grounds and not from the actual beer.

T: A creamy, dreamy coffee shake. Some astringent notes along with roast, dark chocolate, and char. A faintly earthy/mushroomy finish.

M: Rich, smooth and creamy. Nice carb.

O: Slightly biased due to love of coffee, but this one is pretty darn good. Definitely try this.

Serving type: nitro-tap

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Look: Black ad totally opaque with a brown circle on the bottom and a great 1/2 inch tan head and perfect retention with coffee grounds sprinkled on top. Nice touch

Smell: Unfortunately the only thing you smell is the coffee grounds sprinkled on top but that is not a bad thing you just dont smell any characteristics of the beer

Taste: Upfront is a great chocolate flavor but then you get a whiff of the coffee ground and it takes over and totally impacts the flavor so it pretty much finishes with a roasted coffee note

Mouthfeel: Medium but I would like it just a bit thicker and perfectly carbonated

Overall: Once I took the coffee grounds out of the head it became a really good beer. Highly recommended

Serving type: nitro-tap

Consumed July 16th, 2011 at Ladyface Ale Companie Alehouse and Brasserie.

Essentially black in the glass, this beer is crowned with a very thin off-white head. Atop this is sprinkled a small smattering of aromatic ground coffee.

Not surprisingly, the aroma is ground coffee. As I cant' smell the beer AT ALL, I am dinging the beer rating; although the end result is delicious, I have no idea what the BEER smelled like.

Flavor has proper porter qualities: mild flavor of roasted malts (though not to the level of a stout), a dash of sweetness and a trace of an ever-so-slightly sour note. Coffee doesn't appear until the end. Chocolate in the aftertaste as well. Nice.

Mouthfeel is slightly thin, as is appropriate.

Easily drinkable, a pint of the vanished with amazing rapidity.

Serving type: on-tap
