Poured into a tulip out of a bottle.

A – Black as night. Half finger of tan head that settles down quickly. Tiny bit of lacing.
S – This smells awesome. Coffee, milk, molasses, chocolate. Nice.
T – Nice roasted malts to start. Sublime amount of coffee flavor. Not overwhelming. Touch of bitterness. Milk chocolate and cream flavors. Molasses and toffee. Bit of sweet vanilla at the end.
M – Light to medium bodied. A bit thinner than expected. Lively carbonation.
O – This is a very nice beer. Great aroma and very nice flavors. Well done.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

appearance: Medium dark brown. Decent mocha head on the pour that mostly subsides.
smell: Java up front. Some malt. Decent enough nose.
taste: Hops make a showing here. Nice combo with the coffee, leaves an interesting bitter finish.
overall: Interesting brew. Truth in advertising...this is indeed a coffee porter.

3.74/5  rDev +0.5%
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
