4.6/5  rDev +22%
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

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.

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.
