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.

12oz bottle poured into standard pint glass. Best by Sept 2013.

Looks very nice indeed. Black with hints of brown when held up to the light, thick tan colored head. The head dissipates after a while, leaving thick lacing. This lacing eventually sinks, but stays above the body of the beer.

Not getting much on the nose. Faint hints of coffee, but mostly malty, a "portery" aroma

Taste was interesting. Quite smooth, very present coffee flavor, which was nice. Quite smooth, just a hint of that coarse porter burn.

Mouth was full, and it was pleasant rolling that coffee around in the mouth.

Overall, a pretty decent offering. Nowhere near the best porter out there, but far from the worst. A good solid beer.
