3.74/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a coffee brown color capped by a whipped foam tan head; decent retention and splashy lace

Smell: Coffee and chocolate tones, with roasty, almost burnt tones underneath

Taste: Chocolate, up front, with building mocha and coffee tones in the middle, along with some sugary sweetness and a hint of vanilla; after the swallow, there is a roasty, almost burnt character that lingers into the finish, though the sweetness persists, as well

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a bit too much fizz, though there is a creamy aspect that reveals itself as the beer warms

Overall: A decent coffee porter; while not in the top echelon, it is still enjoyable

3.69/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

22oz bottle poured into a pint glass. No freshness date indicated.

A: Pours a deep ruby/brown color. Good clarity. Thick, creamy tan head is very persistent. Thick globs of lacing stick to the glass in a loose ring.

S: Nice freshly roasted coffee aroma. Lots of caramel, toasted grain, toffee, and some milk chocolate. Floral and lightly citric hop scent, Grape skin/raspberry esters.

T: Freshly roasted coffee is all over the palate in a good way. This intermingles beautifully with notes of caramel, toast, roast, and milk chocolate. Oily, citrusy, and bitter hops do more than just make their presence known. Fairly acidic. Doubly bitter finish as oily hops, coffee, and heavily roasted malts all do a number on the palate.

M: Medium bodied. Full and creamy. Little in the way of carbonation. A bit more astringent than I'd like. Smooth.

O: The bottle warns to "Position yourself for the taste explosion." A taste explosion is exactly what you'll get. This beer is more about brute force and extreme taste, and it doesn't let up in the spots where a more subtle hand might be better appreciated. A bit more polish might suit it, but something tells me this isn't the direction the brewers want to go with their beers.
