2.65/5  rDev -35.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Arrives a dark brown with ruby highlights. Small tan head with little retention.
Smell is malt, toffee, coffee and vanilla. Decently balanced.
Taste is strongly coffee then toasted malt and nut. Balance sucks, more like some spilled beer in a cup of coffee (which I hate) than anything else.
Body is medium at best with a light effervescence. Drying finish with a clean (not desired) finish. Body is weak and way too much coffee with no sweetness. Too bad. This one really missed the mark.

On tap at Cycle. Served in a pint glass.

Appearance - Black body. Medium off white head. Thick collar. Great retention.

Smell - Roasted malt. Coffee. Lactose.

Taste - Sweetness from the lactose immediately. Coffee quickly overwhelms it, but the sweetness persists. Some roasted malt. Lactose finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium light for a porter. Flavored by the adjuncts mostly.

Overall - Too much lactose for me.

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

Smells of sweet coffee, crystals, sweet malt. Very much on the sweet side. Smells like someone overdid it with the granulated sugar in a damn Starbucks. Not bad.

Yeah tastes pretty much the same. Granulated sugar and McDonald's coffee.

Mouthfeel is appropriate, good carbonation, just like McDonald's does it.

Pretty okay.

7.1/10

Mini Growler from trade – Thanks @Doppelbockulus!
Notes taken on 08/31/14– to my Barrelworks Brewco snifter glass

A: Pours like it might be overcarbonated or infected but that is not the case. An unrelenting sudsy tan top just continues to billow on upwards. Took me several attempts to even get the glass half full. Seems to display more growth than any actual dissipation. Finally reveals a thin dark coffee colored brew. Some faint sticky residuals are eventually left stuck to the glass.

S: A subtle espresso roast greets the nose with fresh coffee house aromas and dark chocolates close behind. I get some highly kilned grain and there is a touch of dark berry fruit there. Fairly nice and inviting but nothing too in your face really.

T: Freshly roasted coffee with some dark roast malts, cocoa powder, and mild dark fruit components to it. Really this is mostly all coffee and it’s a house blend. As in nothing to bold or daring but quite fresh and tasty. Lightly bittered and just super frothy light. It virtually bounces on the palate. This one is going down with ease.

M: Super light and thin. As in the lightest body I have ever experienced in a brew yet. Almost overcarbed even. Clean, crisp, and dry in the finish.

D: Interesting brew. I mean it is super tasty but nothing outside of a good cup of joe. It is as if they set out to create something more like a table coffee rather than beer. And I would say they were quite successful if that is the case. Extremely sessionable especially on this Sunday morning. This is probably wondrous on draught. Not so sure growler be the best format. Not one you would probably hunt down but a very nice to try.

A cream sugar porter. Big lactose, very good creaminess and milk. Black and lacey. Above average mouthfeel. Unique tasting, a sipper and a little sour in the finish. I think more chocolate presence would help. Most interesting on tap tonight at Peg's.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance is a dark brown color with a half finger brown head.
Aroma is espresso, roasted coffee, roasted malts.
Taste follows the nose but in a lighter way.
Mouthfeel is pretty thin. No real lingering coffee flavors.
This is a solid beer and I love coffee beers.
Glad I got to try it.
