3.68/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz. capped bottle (no date) into a pint glass.

A moderate pour yields a 1-finger tan-colored head that slowly recedes after a few minutes to a thick dusting and thick foam ring. The body is a dark brown that nears black with no traces of color when held to light. Decent lacing can be seen throughout consumption but little seems to stick around.

The nose is basically comprised of aromas of dry, roasted coffee beans, black coffee, and dark chocolate. While not the most deep or complex, this nose is enjoyable and sets you up perfectly for the taste.

Flavors of bittersweet and dark chocolate impact the palate immediately with flavors of black chocolate and unroasted coffee beans quickly noticed as well. Swallowing releases more of the aforementioned flavors with a bit more emphasis on the coffee. As these flavors subside, a dry coffee flavor begins to really stand out ends up lingering on the palate as an aftertaste.

The body on this beer is surprisingly light considering its appearance. Even though it does allow plenty of flavor to come through, it is still very drinkable and rather refreshing. The carbonation is a bit fizzy, especially in the swallow, which contributes greatly to this beers drinkability and refreshing character.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A: I always pour soft so I don't notice this well, it's dark and beautiful but I poured it with no head

S: Great coffee smell deep rich inviting you to taste it

T: Unlike a lot of coffee beers this one lets you taste the base beer which I enjoy so much you get that sweet roast slight burnt just a hint of chocolate from a great porter then you taste coffee afterwards.

M: very good body not stupid thick like an amazing porter but what you expect from a porter very solid

O: I'm supremely pleased about this beer I'm sick of coffee beers being pure coffee then nothing else this one is like hey there is a base beer here check out it's amazing taste and then a zap of coffee

this is a good porter. its smooth, sweet, with a spicy kick, bitter coffee, strong on the nose as well. however not overpowering. also faint notes of chocolate blending with the coffee bean note. some burnt/roasted malt. very dark, creamy, fluffy feel. pours beautifully as well, dense dark/tan head. in my book an A- or B+ beer

3.25/5  rDev -13.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A: Dark sepia-brown pour has a thin, milky, dark walnut toned head that is rather short lived. Thin, spacious and speckled lacing has large voids of open opportunity.

S: Rich chocolate, smooth caramel-coffee roast, with an milky almond like nuttiness.

T: Flavor is bitter earthy chocoalte roast, a bit burnt, sweetened up by the presence of some caramel and dry creamer. Bitter coffee on the leave has a flavor that is a bit linear thereafter. Decent lingering finish but in terms of complexity it is the coffee that is the one most staged here.

M: okay, a bit slick and oily in texture with a near medium body, nil carbonation. Doesnt do much or attributes much in the end.

O: Overall an all right coffee stout, a bit thin substance wise, good strong coffee presence if that is your only concern, thereafter may be a bit of a letdown.

3.78/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Split a 12 oz bottle with waldo567 at room temp.
The beer is poured into a pint glass and gives minimal beige head that fades to nothing fairly rapidly.
Color of the pour is a clear brown hue which allows plenty of light to pass through the glass.
Aroma is rich roasted malt with some coffee grinds and a hint of malt sweetness, almost a brown sugar hit.
First sip reveals an easy drinking, mild carbonated beer with smooth texture.
Flavor is sweet malt and then some roasted notes followed by just a hint of coffee-like bitterness.
No real hops that I pick up anywhere.

I do enjoy this beer and was kept up a little later than anticipated, probably due to any caffeine in the beer.

Well crafted beer that is simple straightforward, and good.

would buy again if I found it.
