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

A-black with a dark tan colored head. good lacing

S-actually a fairly good scent of coffee with just a small touch of hops. its a good strong scent.

T-comes in with a really full flavored taste of coffee and slowly transitions in to a taste that reminds me of straight coffee bean. it has just a touch of bitterness to it.the after-taste is good and strong of the same flavor. very robust this is.

M-smooth medium carbonation with a crisp finish

O-i picked this out because it was the darkest beer i could find at a local beer shop, and because it was only $1.50 for the bottle to go. i honestly expected nothing but an average porter. what i got was a world class porter willing to challenge any other porter head on. this is robust and tasty, something i could drink a lot of.

4.38/5  rDev +16.8%

A: The beer pours brown into my Founders Brewing Company goblet and builds up a nice light brown head. The retention and lacing are pretty good.

S: The smell is full of malts, chocolate, and fresh coffee. Coffee is right up front and is surprisingly strong.

T: The coffee comes first and is followed by a sweet chocolate and slight caramel maltiness. The roastiness is not overbearing, it's balanced nicely with the sweetness of the chocolate. The finish is insanely dry. I really enjoyed the taste.

MF/D: Medium body, carbonation is a bit low, dries the mouth out completely, making you continue to take sips. I thought the drinkability was pretty good for a porter.

O: I really enjoyed this. Balanced, tasty, full of coffee just like I hoped it would be.

Grabbed a pint of this last night at the Rivertowne for 4.25 Whoot local!

A - Pours a solid black amber. You can see through it but just barley. The thin 1/4 inch layer of mocha colored head left a nice bit of sticky lacing.

S - Not as strong as the name implies but I do get soft tones of roast and chocolate. Kind of like a cappuccino!

T - I was glad it had a very balanced taste of coffee without being too bitter. Roast flavors are the best part of this beer which are light to medium tones and I do get a distinct chocolate but not bittersweet or bakers. More cocoa but not dry. Didn't really pick up any hops but that's what I like in my porters, more malt!

M - Drank with a nice medium body. Sweet but not cloying. I sipped it pretty quickly.

Overall it's not the best coffee beer I had but ranks up there with balance. Not extreme or immensely flavorful like other coffee beers but light and flavored enough to have a six pack. Would be happy to pick up a six pack if I found it at a local bottle shop. Hook a brotha up!

12oz bottle poured into a snifter.

T - Pours a dark chocolate brown, a little flat but nearly completely opaque. About a finger and a half of tan head quickly builds and has a decent amount of retention.

S - The aroma is full of freshly pressed coffee, bold and roasty, but also smooth and not acrid. There is also a rich chocolate which is surprisingly potent. I am also discerning a bit of flaked oats as well, but I am not sure if it actually had any in it or not.

T - The flavors are initially a sharp kick of espresso and a slight amount of roast, but it quickly turns quite chocolaty and enjoyably sweet. The roast isn't overbearing and is actually fairly light, which helps it continue to be smooth and easily transition from coffee to chocolate to hops. The hops are earthy and nutty, lending the entire flavor profile to mesh comfortably with each other.

M - Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with good carbonation. A little bit thin at times, the mouthfeel suffers occasionally from a watery feel after the initial malts, but as this is a porter, I can't complain too much.

D/O - Drinkability is moderately high. This is one of the smoothest coffee beers I've come across while still maintaining a potent espresso boost. That, combined with the sweet, rich malts gives this a very flavorful initial taste that lingers well into the finish.

4.15/5  rDev +10.7%

12 oz bottle courtesy of tommyguz pours a rich brown color with a super-fine bubbled head...looks almost nitro. Retention is awesome because of it and the lacing very nice. Bonus points for a spectacular label and a great name.

Nose is milk chocolate and coffee...quite original descriptors, I know! Smells good and fresh.

Taste is less astringently roasty than many coffee beers. The coffee flavors are there aplenty, but it maintains a great smoothness. Maybe it is the sweetness...regardless, it is a tasty coffee porter. Not a whole lot of complexity here, like in the aroma, but it is a fine beer - I have been pretty impressed with the 2 Full Pint offerings I have had so far.

On tap at Fat Heads Pgh

A: Pours a deep dark brown color with a nice one finger tan foam head. Some decent lacing.

S: Lots of roasted coffee, milk chocolate, campfire and vanilla.

T: Starts off on the sweet side, the milk chocolate definitely the most predominant. In the middle a charred coffee bitterness starts to balance out the sweetness and lasts throughout the finish.

M: A slight slick taste on the palate. A very nice medium bodied beer.

D: A really solid Porter from Full Pint. Easy to drink on a nice cold day or in the evening for dessert.

I dont know what it is about coffee beers, but when trying a new one, I'm always a bit apprehensive. It's always nice to be pleasantly surprised that someone was able to pull off the job in smooth fashion. And that's what we've got here: a nice easy drinker that takes hold of all the characteristics you'd hope for a real pleasant drinker.

Bottle poured into my Church Brew Works pint glass. I've had this beer a couple of times before, including at the Brewery. It was one of my favorite offerings of theres, during my visit.

A: A charming dark brown (shades of black) beer with lots of lively carbonation on the pour, and hefty brown head on top.

S: Chocolate and Mokah come through at a moderate volume, with a touch of *roastiness* lying underneath.

T: More coffee flavor in the taste than the nose. Notes of dark (bitter) chocolate and roastiness present as well. Bitterness arrives a bit earlier than I'd expect, and that makes for an enjoyable, unique experience.

Classic American hop flavor can be detected at an appropriately low volume here. Everything pulls together quite nicely. It's moments like this that I wish I could give something a 4.25 rating... a 4 feels too low, to me, but the 4.5 too generous.

M: Great carbonation initially, and it leaves plenty of roasty/java flavors behind on the finish. Well done.

D/O: Very drinkable. If the question is "would you like another one?", my answer is "yes". An enjoyable experience.

12 oz bottle: This one pours a fairly opaque darker brown color. There was a small tan head that didn’t linger long or leave much in the way of lacing. The aroma is good. Coffee and chocolate malt are predominate. Some hops are in there too, but they are hard to determine exactly what they are. The taste is very good. Fair amount of the coffee on to, with some chocolate malts in the background. Dryness to the finish. Lots of hops being hidden back there. Nice. Definitely helps to be a coffee lover for this one!
